Dr. Stone: Stone Wars Episode 6 Spoilers
Episode 5 begins with Senku and others doing initial testing on the steam cart they have just built. Senku plans to mobilize the entire Ishigami Village and head towards the heart of the Empire of Might, where Chrome is still held captive. The perceptive elders of Ishigami tell Senku that they know that he has built the steam cart for their benefit but will not accompany the rest of the village in the journey. With some reluctance, Senku and others accept the decision.
After the group sets up camp not far from where Tsukasa has built his empire, Suika scouts the area. She sees that Chrome is held in a cell with bamboo bars and goes back to their camp to report it. Senku creates carbon resin by combining paper and molten plastic. He then modifies the steam cart with it, remaking it into a literal tank. Senku knows that he has only one chance with the “Steam Gorilla” and wants to use it to free Chrome.
Meanwhile, Tsukasa has figured out that Senku has likely developed a steam engine. Tsukasa and his subordinates have set up several traps around Chrome’s cell. When Chrome sees them, he decides to escape on his own. Episode 6 might focus on how Chrome might escape his captors and what role Senku and others play in it.
