SK8 the Infinity Episode 12 Spoilers

In episode 11, Tadashi recalls all the fun he and Ainosuke/Adam used to have together. Meanwhile, Reki is back to his former self, making his sister and mother feel relieved. Ainosuke sends Tadashi to inform Reki that he has been selected to substitute Shadow. Tadashi warns Reki that during their previous beef, Adam wasn’t serious, but this time he will be. Reki replies that Tadashi keeps forgetting that skateboarding is ultimately about having fun. When Cherry and Shadow, both of whom are still in hospital, learn that Reki has accepted Adam’s invitation, they can’t believe how stupid Reki is.

Miya also holds a similar opinion, but Joe reminds him that this means that Reki is back. Reki and Langa spend hours at the former’s workshop, talking about skating and bonding. Meanwhile, Ainosuke is made the prefectural leader of his political party. On the evening of the beef, Langa tells Reki to win so that they can go against each other in the final round. The beef begins predictably, with Adam gaining a considerable lead. However, Reki seems slower than usual. He endures severe beating from Adam and continues to skate.

When the rain starts to fall, Reki’s plan becomes apparent. He is using wheels with extra grooves because he knew that there would be rain. While the wheels make him quite slow on a normal track, they provide extra grip and stability on the rain-drenched, slippery track. When Reki pulls ahead, Adam tries to hit him with his skateboard in the same way he did to Cherry, but this time. He misses and trips. Although Adam wins the beef, everybody present in the mine celebrates Reki’s boldness. The episode ends as Tadashi/Snake forfeits, setting up the final match between Langa and Adam. Most of episode 12 might focus on the beef. Ainosuke might get arrested for his involvement in corruption. Tadashi might attempt to remind Ainosuke how it used to be when they were children.
