Dr. Stone: Stone World The Beginning (S01, E05) | (recap)

Picking up from the cliff hanger of last week, Shishio prepares to knock Senku unconscious. He remains that he, Senku, Taiju, and Yuzuriha would have been friends if they met before the petrification. However, due to Senku’s obsession with bringing civilization back, Shishio believes he needs to kill him.

Stone World The Beginning

Senku had been regularly cracking his neck and drawing attention to its stiffness. This prompted Shishio to suggest blunt force trauma as the cause of death.

Taiju did not make it in time to stop the blow to Senku’s head, but he and Yuzuriha were able to cause a distraction allowing them to run away with Senku’s limp body.

Taiju would not accept Senku’s death and soon realized that Senku had to have a plan because his main goal was to keep everyone alive. After trying CPR, Yuzuriha and Taiju discovered that Senku still had a stone fragment in the back of his neck.

Using the revival serum, they hoped to heal the damage to Senku’s neck and spine as a result of the stone being removed. This calls back to Yuzuriha getting the leftover stone removed from her foot.

As Yuzuriha and Taiju wait patiently hoping that Senku will regain consciousness, we are shown a flashback of Senku’s preservation through his stone period.

We see Senku will himself awake, examine his stone shell, attempt to create fire, and create a hatchet all while being observed by monkeys. At the end of his preliminary actions, he decides that he is going to help reform civilization.

I’m assuming we’re going to see Senku awakening in the next episode.
