Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 23 Spoilers

In episode 22, a cursed spirit looms over Taichi Kanada, who gets fatally stabbed. His name is subsequently added to Tokyo Jujutsu High’s registry. Akari Nitta takes Itadori, Megumi, and Nobara to investigate the deaths of Kanada and two others. She reveals that all the victims attended Saitama Urami East Junior High. The sorcerers discover that their prospective witness has died in the same manner as the first three victims. They were all killed at the entrance of their home or workplace.

When the sorcerers visit the school, two delinquents recognize Megumi, forcing Megumi to admit that he was a former student at Saitama Urami East. The group speaks to Takeda, one of the faculty members, who also recognizes Megumi. Takeda enquires about Megumi’s sister Tsumiki, but the latter seems evasive. The group visits Yasohachi Bridge, where several people have committed suicide over the years.

Meanwhile, Mahito forces an ordinary human to swallow one of the Death Painting Wombs, effectively turning him into its host. Megumi learns from a former classmate that Tsumiki was with her when she went to the bridge, making Megumi realize that his sister or former classmate would be the Curse’s next target. When Megumi calls Ijichi for support, he is informed that almost all sorcerers are busy. Ijichi also advises him to retreat for now as the Curse seems to be too strong. But Megumi goes back to the bridge to investigate further. Itadori and Nobara soon show up to help their friends. The episode ends as the Curse behind the recent deaths reveals itself to the sorcerers. The Cursed Womb: Death Painting also arrives and begins attacking the main characters. In episode 23, Itadori might fight The Cursed Womb: Death Painting, while Megumi and Nobara take care of the other curse.
