Yuji is brought in and interrogated by Satoru Gojo. Yuji proves he can control Sukuna's power and Megumi vouches for him not to be executed by the higher-ups at Jujutsu High. Satoru manages to give Yuji another option instead of being executed: find the appendages of Sukuna and consume them all.
Yuji awakens inside a room sealed by several dozen different talismans. Yuji is bound to a chair and interrogated by a man wearing a blindfold. This man is Satoru Gojo, the teacher of the first-year students at Jujutsu High.
Yuji doesn't understand what's happening and asks what happened to his friends. Satoru says Yuji should only be worried about himself and reveals that his secret execution has been set.
Yuji pleaded his case to Megumi, who then explained it to his sensei appeared. He was ordered to follow up on Megumi's mission by the higher-ups and learned that Yuji ate the cursed object. Satoru asks that Yuji prove can contain the curse called Sukuna by switching to its consciousness for ten seconds. Sukuna takes control and battles with the strongest jujutsu sorcerer.
After ten seconds, Yuji passed the test by taking back control of his body. Satoru knocked Yuji unconscious and Megumi pleaded for Yuji not to be executed despite jujutsu regulations. Back in the present, Satoru explains to Yuji that rather than be executed right away, the higher-ups have been convinced to hold it off for now.
Satoru reveals that Jujutsu High is in possession of six of Sukuna's fingers. They can't be destroyed or sealed, but Yuji can devour them into his body as a vessel. The higher-ups agreed that Yuji should be executed after consuming the rest of Sukuna.
Afterward, Yuji visits Sasaki and Iguchi at the hospital. She feels guilty about what happened but Yuji assures her it was the fault of evil curses. He leaves to meet back up with Satoru. He decides to become a jujutsu sorcerer to stave off curses that ruin peoples lives. Yuji devours another finger and Satoru confirms Yuji is a special type of person that appears every thousand years or so.
Yuji doesn't wish to be executed, but he agrees to eat the rest of Sukuna. He plans on dying as his grandfather asked him to. Megumi regroups with both of them and they plan to head off to Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.
