Killing Someone is the Only Way to Save Them

The My Hero Academia Season 6, episode 20, starts at a hospital where Grand Torino lies in bed. He tells Deku it is Grand Torino’s fault because he must kill Shigaraki (Grand Torino’s Grandson).

Deku’s Encounter with a Mutant

A fox-like girl mutant searches for shelter and gets surrounded by civilians who assume her to be part of the villain league and attack her. As she gets scared and screams for help, Deku saves her from being hit by the weapons.

Deku then asks the civilians to leave her because she does not seem to be a villain, as evidenced by her expressions and kind behavior. The civilians, convinced by Deku’s words, leave them alone.

Deku hands her the umbrella and asks what she is doing here. The mutant says that she planned to stay home till things would get settled down, but several incidents at her place made her look for shelter.

While they are speaking to each other, a car stops in front of them, and All-Might comes out with a bento box and hands it to Deku, asking him to refill his energy. Deku thanks him for dinner, then runs off to look for other casualties.

Can Deku Unleash One-For-All’s Power?

Deku looks at the city from a high place. The avatar of Daigoro appears and tells Deku that the scene is very similar to Daigoro’s past when people used to live in fear. Deku mentions that Dabi, Nomus, Shigaraki, and others have disappeared into their hair, leaving no clues behind, which has become one of the hurdles in their mission of defeating the villains.

The police already have their hands full with jailbreakers which has delayed Shigaraki’s investigation. Deku gets flashbacks of when he faced Shigaraki and realized that not even Endeavor and other heroes could stop him. The responsibility of ending Shigaraki depends on whether he will be able to unleash and control the one-for-all power.

The scene shifts to the dream-like state of Deku, where all the past users of One-for-All are present. Yoichi Shigaraki, the first user, asks the second and third users to help them unleash one-for-all’s full power to defeat All-for-One once and for all. After much discussion, all the users agree to share their powers with Deku to defeat All-for-one.

Civilians’ Hatred Toward Heroes

We see that Endeavour hides behind the pillar while a villain keeps attacking him. He blames Drednet for distributing such weapons to civilians. Best Jeanist and Hawks arrive at the location to capture other villains.

Endeavor finishes off the villain by shooting him with the ignite arrow and ever defeats the person with ignite arrow while the villain loses consciousness; he says that it is Endeavour’s fault.

When the heroes finish capturing the villain and send them off to jail, the civilians rally against them and throw things at Endeavor, hawks, and Best Jeanist, blaming them for the condition of their lives. They say it’s the heroes’ fault that they could not finish Shigaraki and let the jailbreakers loose.

Who is the Hired Gun in My Hero Academia Season 6?

In the second half of My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 20, Deku, while speaking to All-Might over the phone, a bullet appears from nowhere and crushes the phone. The GPS goes off, which alerts All-Might, Endeavour, and other heroes.

As soon as they know Deku is in trouble, they head to his location. After destroying Deku’s phone, the sniper orders him not to move, and if he moves, she will finish him off.

Looking at the bullet’s pink and blue fiber, Deku remembers Hawk saying that All-for-One and Shigaraki cannot steal One-for-all yet because the scientist has been captured and they have no other way to keep up with the body and All-for-One’s power.

Hence, they will try to make Deku’s body a vessel for which he must be captured alive. To capture Deku alive, Hawk predicts that Lady Nagant, his senior, may be hired for this job. It’s confirmed that Lady Nagant, the former public safety commissioner, is the hired gun by All-for-One.

Lady Nagant vs Deku Teaser

Lady Nagant Meets All-for-One

At the time of jailbreak, Lady Nagant rescues Shie Hassaikai, another powerful villain from previous MHA seasons. All-for-One appears from nowhere and assigns the mission of capturing Deku alive to Lady Nagant.

My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 20

Lady Nagant asks the reason for getting assigned to a mission while other jailbreakers are allowed to go wild. All-for-One says that she has already killed her ally before, and her desire to destroy the hero society makes her perfect for the role.

He asks her to isolate Deku and try taking him out while it rains. The My Hero Academia Season 6 Episode 20 ends with a cliffhanger.
