My Hero Academia Season 4 Episode 12 Spoilers: What to Expect?

The ending of episode 11 is something that most of us had predicted but none of us were prepared for. Almost from the beginning of the season, along with Deku, even Togata’s character was being foreshadowed all along. And as much as I personally love Deku, at some point, even I was starting question All Might’s decision of granting him One For All. Though I’m not really questioning it anymore, in this season, so far, Mirio is easily my favorite hero. However, it is possible that he may not be able to stick around for too long. In the final moments of episode 11, it wasn’t clearly portrayed that he is already dead and from what we know about him, he might still have some fight left in him. Let’s hope that, in the next season, the other heroes will catch up with him before its too late.

Speaking of which, the preview for the next episode does drop some hints on this. In the post-credits scene, Nighteye can be seen with Eri and Togata. So after Togata’s defeat, he will be the one saving the day. The preview also refers to a future that somehow aligns the lives of Deku and Eri. And if you look closely, you’ll also notice a scene in the opening theme, which suggests that Eri and Deku’s relationship will have a crucial role to play in his season. From what we know about its preview, the episode will probably mark the beginning of this relationship.

Speaking of Eri, now that Overhaul has openly announced that she is not his daughter, the episodes that follow could also possibly explore her background and how she ended up with Overhaul. The reason why she has been with him all along is pretty clear. He made her his prisoner by brainwashing her into believing that she is a curse on the rest of the world. This, too, could be linked with her past. Maybe she unknowingly ended up harming the ones around her and Overhaul is now just using that to manipulate her.

In conclusion, from all that we know, the next episode will not predominantly focus on Deku and that’s one aspect of the show we’ll have to patiently wait for. But since he is the main protagonist, he will, for obvious reasons, have some role to play. Meanwhile, it seems like Nighteye’s character will be the highlight of the next episode and eventually, using his quirk of predicting the future, he will be able to get Eri and Togata out of there. However, the battle between Overhaul and the heroes is far from over and surely, Overhaul will have another trick up his sleeve. We’ll just have to patiently wait for another week to find out what it is.
