What Happened in JJK Episode 39

As soon as Megumi opens a hole in the Dagon’s domain to escape, Toji appears. Nobody knew whose side is Toji on and out of nowhere he appears near Maki and steals the Playful Cloud from Maki.

Dagon thought Toji was going to be an easy enemy as he showed no signs of curse energy. However, Dagon underestimated him. Toji starts beating him up with Playful Cloud and in the end defeats Dagon single-handedly and proves to be a formidable opponent. If you wanna learn how strong Toji Fushiguro really is, we have already covered it in another article.

After defeating him, his domain disappeared and out of nowhere Jogo arrived and unleashed his fury and set Nanami and Maki on fire, ultimately killing Naobito as well.

The episode took a dark turn when Jogo arrived at the location where Nanako and Mimiko had revived Sukuna by feeding Yuji a finger. In a surprising twist, Jogo fed Yuji ten more fingers, allowing Sukuna to take over Yuji’s body. Sukuna kills the twins and challenges Jogo.
