Zombieland Saga Season 2 Episode 5 Spoilers
In episode 4, Sakura and Junko are still stunned since hearing the leader of Iron Frill, Shiori, asking Ai to join their group, not realizing that this is their original frontwoman. Sakura and Junko decide to keep what they heard to themselves for now. But they are evidently affected, especially Junko, who later has a conversation with Kotaro. Their producer urges her to fight for Franchouchou and protect its unity. He lends her his guitar and encourages her to smash through her misgivings about herself and her fears and excuses.
On the day of the performance, Franchouchou overcomes their fears and those of their fans and leaves a lasting impression on everyone at the venue. Junko literally smashes Kotaro’s guitar and pulls Ai to the stage. Afterward, with the entire group supporting her, Ai declines Iron Frill’s offer. Sometime later, Shiori declares Franchouchou to be their greatest competition. In episode 5, the story might focus on Lily and her relationship with the rest of the team. The group might make rapid progress since their successful opening act performance.
