Cells at Work! CODE BLACK! Episode 11 Spoiler

In episode 10, AA2153, AC1677, and other red blood cells are sent to the stomach to deliver oxygen and nutrients after the body develops an ulcer there. They come across Gastric Chief Cell, who keeps the powerful gastric acid under control with other stomach cells’ help. But since the ulcer has developed, the stomach cells’ work has become even more hazardous. Some red blood cells die after getting splashed with gastric acid. Witnessing this, a horrified AC1677 flees. However, he eventually returns and continues their march forward with AA2153.

AA2153 and AC1677 learn from Gastric Chief Cell that H. Pylori is the main reason for the ulcer. When U-1196 and other Neutrophils come to fight it, AA2153 becomes once more inspired by her work ethic. As the battle between the Neutrophils and H. Pylori intensifies, the resulting tremors create cracks all over the stomach. AA2153’s leg gets burned because of a splash of the acid. As AA2153 and AC1677 attempt to trudge forward, the floor breaks, and AA2153’s steps falter because of his injuries. AC1677 manages to save his friend but falls into the acid himself.

Consumed with grief, frustration, and anger, AA2153 finally snaps. Meanwhile, Clarithromycin arrives in the stomach and kills H. Pylori. The episode ends as AA2153 stops going to work. In episode 11, AA2153 might start a revolution against the abhorrent working condition.
