Demon Slayer Season 2 Episode 4 Spoilers
In season 2, episode 3, Tanjirou and his friends fall into a deep sleep and begin to see their deepest desires become a reality in the dream world. While Zenitsu is busing enjoying a date with Nezuko, Kyoujurou Rengoku meets his father to inform him that he has become a Hashira now. Unfortunately, instead of being praised for his achievement, Rengoku is told that his accomplishments mean nothing. The Flame Hashira recalls how his father once used to be a motivated man who trained him and his younger brother Senjuro.
However, sometime in the past, he suddenly lost the drive and gave up swordsmanship despite managing to become a Hashira in the Demon Slayer Corps. The acrid criticism does not affect Rengoku’s resolve, and he meets Senjuro afterward. He does not lie about their father’s sad state of mind but ensures that he lets his younger brother know that he will stand by him no matter what happens. He asks him to become a better human being instead of pushing him to make a certain career choice.
Meanwhile, one of the sleep-deprived kids sent by Enmu manages to find the realm of the subconscious after reaching the edge of the reach dream world (as they are finite). But when she tries to destroy the spiritual core by stabbing it, Rengoku, despite being in a deep sleep, lifts the girl into the air and stops her just before the crippling blow. At the same time, Tenjirou is reliving the old days with his family, unaware that it is all just an illusion. However, he unknowingly keeps saying things that allude to his life after he joined the Demon Slayer Corps.
When he goes to get a bucket of water from the nearby river, his shadow grabs him into the water and tells him to wake up and save his friends. Tanjirou immediately comes to his senses and realizes that he must get out of the dream world before it’s too late. He goes to the forest away from his family and tries to think of a way to return to the real world. His father suddenly appears for a split second behind him and tells the protagonist that he must use his katana to cut something.
Tanjirou realizes that probably the only way to end the dream is to kill himself and return to the real world. He slits his throat without hesitating, and his red blood spills all over the ice near him. In episode 4, Tanjirou will become the first person to awake from his deep slumber and begin to try and wake up his friends immediately. All of his friends will return to the real world soon, and the protagonist will confront Enmu.
