Fruits Basket Season 3 Episode 7 Spoilers

In episode 6, during her reunion with Tooru and others, Isuzu finally realizes how kind the other girl is. She later learns from Shigure that Ren was lying to her when the older woman told her she knew how to break the curse.  He then reveals that the curse is breaking on its own. Hatsuharu tells the other Zodiacs that he found Isuzu in the prison where Kyo will eventually be going.

Kyo tells Tooru that he can’t accompany her to her mother’s grave on the anniversary of her death but later visits on his own. Tooru’s grandfather is there. Kyo learns from him the troubling childhood that Tooru endured. When she was young, she didn’t look much like her father, and following his death, her relatives started speculating whether she is his daughter.

Meanwhile, asked if she pities Kyo, Tooru reveals that she often feels that she wants to break the curse just for him. Later, Tooru reveals that her mother, Kyoko, became deeply depressed after Tooru’s father, Katsuya, died. As a child, Tooru pretended that her father was a terrible man to protect her mother. Kyo comforts her but goes into shock after remembering that he was there when Kyoko died. Her last words to him were that she would never forgive him.

In episode 7, Akito might decide to kill her mother but doesn’t go through with it when she discovers that Hiro has been freed of his curse as well. This might drive Akito into a mental breakdown. Ren will likely find out that the box she has been obsessing over all these years is empty.
