Kumo desu ga, Nani ka Episode 9 Spoilers
The first part of episode 8 takes the story back to Japan, with the entire class out on an excursion at a park. Shunsuke (Schlain) spends time with his friends Kanata (Katia) and Kyouya until Kengo (Hugo) asks them to participate in a soccer match. Later, as he returns with snacks for himself and his friends, he notices that Mirai Shinohara (Feirune) and her clique bullying Hiiro Wakaba. Shun puts a stop to that by making the bullies aware that he is there.
It is heavily implied in this episode that Hiiro Wakaba is Kumoko. In the alternate world, Schlain asks Filimøs if Kyouya is alive. She replies that he is, but she can’t tell Schlain and Katia where he is.
In the dungeon, Kumoko faces her toughest challenge yet, a high-ranking fire dragon. Although it is severely injured from a battle it recently fought, the dragon is still powerful enough to make Kumoko’s statistics look insignificant in comparison. During their fight, it meticulously destroys all the places Komoko can jump to evade his flames. The episode ends as it successfully traps Kumoko on a small protruding rock surrounded by lava. In episode 9, the outcome of Kumoko’s battle with the dragon might be revealed.
