Megalo Box Season 2 Episode 3 Spoilers
In episode 2, Joe’s pursuit of the teenage thief who stole his bike takes him to an abandoned amusement park where some refugees live. They have been persecuted over the years and made to work under harsh conditions for a meager wage. Despite their best efforts, they often suffered allegations of stealing other people’s jobs. So, to live a peaceful life, they were forced to live in the amusement park, but unfortunately, authorities are planning to kick them out of there as well. Joe sympathizes with the residents when he learns what they have gone through. However, he is a bit taken aback to find that their Chief knows about him and his heroic rise in the ring.
But Joe is still suffering from the aftermath of his fights and is entirely dependent on a specific medication. He even loses consciousness at one point, and his visions of Nanbu are only getting worse. However, by the end of the episode, Joe, after long contemplation, decides to get rid of all his medication and returns to the Chief. It appears that the former champion is now ready for action.
Episode 3 is likely to capture his life slowly returning to normalcy as he will probably begin training again. In episode 2, Chief tells him that there is going to be a big tournament soon. Is Joe thinking of participating in it? He will likely drop some hints in the upcoming episode. However, Joe’s health appears to have deteriorated significantly. How will he endure the strict training regimen that he will have to follow if he wants to get in the ring and compete again?
Moreover, it is still unclear if dropping all his medication in the sink is a wise decision or not. However, despite the uncertainty, it looks like Joe has made his mind. We may soon see him return to his old self. The road won’t be easy, but since he has done it once in the past, there is no reason why he couldn’t do it again.
