To Your Eternity Episode 5 Spoilers

In episode 4, Hayase takes March, Parona, and Fushi to Yanome. Parona recalls her older sister, who willingly went to the mountains so that Parona could be spared. On their way, Parona and March learn that even the shaman woman Hayase brought is a prisoner. After arriving at Yanome, they and Fushi are overwhelmed by the large and bustling city. Hayase drugs them and then puts them in separate cells.

She gets other prisoners to attack Fushi, hoping to unlock the secret of his immortality. Fushi briefly turned into the boy before transforming back into the wolf. He hears the phrase “it hurts” from one of the prisoners who attack him, and he continues to repeat it both as a boy and a wolf. Hayase orders March to clean the wounds on Oniguma or the Spirit Bear. For the first time in its existence, the creature receives kindness from someone as March removes numerous arrows from its body and cleans its wound. It finally dies peacefully, and Fushi stops saying, “it hurts.” The episode ends as Parona manages to get out of her cell and frees March and Fushi.

In episode 5, Pioran, the shaman woman, might join Parona, Fushi, and March as they try to escape from Yanome. They will likely have to go through Hayase and her soldiers, who will probably block their way. During their escape, another important transformation might happen to Fushi.
