My Hero Academia Season 5 Episode 2 Spoilers

In the season 5 premiere, the world still hasn’t recovered from Endeavor and High-End’s grand battle in Fukuoka. Even inside the 1-A classroom, it is the main topic of conversation. The students learn from Eraser Head that they will participate in a drill with two of the “Big 3” of the U.A. High School, Suneater and Nejire Chan, serving as their villains. The remaining one, Lemillion, will be the drowning bystander 1-A students need to save. During the drill, 1-A students execute most of their plans flawlessly. However, instead of taking Suneater out, Midoriya (or Deku) asks him to surrender. This prompts Suneater to remind the younger boy that a real villain will not appreciate mercy.

Eventually, Bakugou arrives and defeats Suneater. Even though the drill has ended, he hits the Class 3-A student with a powerful blast, leaving the teachers exasperated. The episode ends as it is revealed that Hawks and Dabi are working together. In episode 2, chapter 191 onwards of the source material might be adapted. Todoroki and his siblings might visit their estranged father in the hospital. Deku might receive a lesson on curtailing his sense of mercy. Hawks might convince Dabi that he earnestly wants to join the League of Villains.
