Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is finally out and fans around the world who were not fortunate enough to see the movie earlier are finally able to enjoy this masterpiece and see what happened before the main plot of Jujutsu Kaisen. Now, aside from Yuta, Gojo – as expected – once again plays a pivotal role in the series, as does Suguru Geto, Gojo’s former ally and friend. Gojo and Geto have a brief heart-to-heart before the movie ends and in this article, we are going to tell you what exactly they talked about.
Gojo and Geto discuss the events of the movie briefly before it becomes obvious that Gojo is going to finish off Geto out of respect. Gojo then says something inaudible to Geto, which surprises the latter so he asks him to at least throw some curses at him before he dies. It was never revealed what Gojo said, but Akutami revealed that Gojo repeated the same words somewhere in Volume 0, which has us thinking that he probably said “You are my best friend. The one and only.”
The rest of this article is going to focus on the final moments between Satoru Gojo and Suguru Get at the very end of Jujutsu Kaisen 0. We’re going to give you all the necessary details you need to know in order to properly evaluate the importance of the final scene, as well as that inaudible closing dialogue that had a lot of people confused. Also, we’re going to answer some related questions as usual.
What does Gojo say to Geto before he kills him?
If you listened carefully to the dialogue between Geto and Gojo in the final moments of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, you will probably have noticed various interesting points. Namely, the two of them briefly discussed the events that have happened; we saw Geto return Yuta’s student ID card; and we saw Geto caring for his “family”. Gojo praised him on his principles, stating that he knew that he wouldn’t actually kill his students, since he was so protective of the Jujutsu sorcerers. Despite them being enemies at this point, Gojo still trusted Geto and Geto was still a principled-enough character to disregard his villainous nature and adhere to his ideals.
When it becomes obvious that Gojo is going to kill Geto – out of both respect and necessity – Gojo asks his friend if he has any last words. Moments after, the sound disappears and we see Gojo say something to Geto, with Geto being shocked in a positive manner. We never hear Gojo’s words nor does Geto’s reaction tell us anything about that. This is why fans around the world are wondering what Gojo actually said to Geto before killing him.
We went to the manga for help, but the dialogue is equally unknown. We then found out that Akutami was once asked about Gojo’s final words to Geto, to which he replied that Gojo revealed them in another place in the original manga. Now, Geto smiled and asked Gojo to attack him with some Curses, at least, so we can deduce that Gojo said a nice thing. It also had to have some emotional weight, as killing Geto was a very difficult moment for Gojo, so the words had to have some importance beyond the usual farewell phrases. This helped us in our search for the answer in the manga.
After reading it over and over, we think we were successful. Namely, we cannot be absolutely certain that our conclusion is correct, but we managed to find a line that fits all the criteria: it has a lot of weight for Gojo and it would positively shock the dying Geto. The phrase is uttered near the end of Volume 0, when Yuta asked Gojo if he was the one who found his student card ID, to which Gojo replied that he was not.
But, alongside the answer he gives to Yuta, Gojo also added the following words: “He is my best friend. The one and only.” These words would absolutely fit our description, so it could be that Gojo said this to Geto: “You are my best friend. The one and only.” Given that he had to kill him, his best and only friend, Gojo would – of course – be quite emotional and knowing that Akutami confirmed that the lines are present in the original manga, we think that we found our likely candidate.
Why did Gojo and Geto stop being friends?
A year after their freshman year incident, Suguru and Shoko help Satoru with his techniques. Suguru thinks Satoru has become “the strongest” and wonders who he is doing all this for. When he meets Yu, the latter asks Suguru if he should bring him something from his mission to which he replies something sweet, as he will share it with Satoru.
Suguru then asks Yu why did he become an exorcist but they are suddenly interrupted by Yuki Tsukumo. Yu then leaves them alone and goes on a mission. Suguru and Yuki meanwhile then discuss the problem of the appearance of Curses. Yuki explains to him that she arrived at two solutions to stop this phenomenon: the first, to deprive humanity of the black energy, and the second, to make it so that humanity can control it.
When Suguru mentions the possibility of removing all non-exorcists, Yuki explains to him that this would be the easiest but still the most extreme solution. After the two of them talk, Yuki tells Suguru not to worry about the Star Plasma as Tengen unexpectedly stabilized before leaving. Later, Suguru meets Kento at the morgue and learns how Yu was killed during their mission.
In September, Suguru is sent on a mission to a village but massacres the entire population there when they want him to kill two young exorcists – Mimiko and Nanako Hasaba. Suguru then takes the two little girls and runs away with them. He is then considered a master of plagues and is condemned to death.
Sometime later, Suguru also goes after his parents. He subsequently meets Shoko in Shinjuku and explains that he plans to kill all non-exorcists. When Shoko brings Satoru to Shinjuku, Suguru discusses his ideal with Satoru. The latter, unable to kill his former friend, lets Suguru go away. Later, Suguru meets most of the former members of the Astral Cult and explains to them that he will take over, killing their spokesperson in the process.
As you can see, Satoru and Suguru were once very close friends, but at some point, Geto simply strayed away from their former ideals and became a genocidal villain. Sure, he never liked humans, but Gojo would never allow him to simply exterminate everyone. This was an ideological break between the two and shows a human and emotional side of Gojo we don’t see often. But, as a greatly-written villain should do, Geto put his ideals first and this is what resulted in the destruction of his friendship with Satoru Gojo.
Does Gojo really kill Geto? Why?
On December 24, Suguru arrives at the Tokyo Exorcism School to get Rika. Suguru kills all his opponents and puts up a veil all around the school. Suguru then encounters Maki Zen’in, Panda, and Toge, whom he easily defeats. While Suguru is happy to see Jujutsu sorcerers sacrificing themselves for other sorcerers, Yuta shows up and then gets angry. Suguru sends several Curses on Yuta and Rika, but Yuta manages to fight back and save his friends as well as heal them.
As Yuta returns to battle, Suguru releases more Curses, but Yuta uses Rika’s power to defeat them. Suguru manages to understand what Rika’s power is and further expresses his desire to possess her. Suguru then takes on Yuta in close combat and overpowers him, causing Rika to pull Yuta away from Suguru. While Suguru faces Yuta, the master of Curses expresses his views on non-exorcists.
Yuta rushes at Suguru but the latter manages to break his sword. After a brief conversation that the two have with each other, Suguru decides to use all his Curses against Yuta and Rika through his Whirlwind technique. Yuta decides to fully unleash Rika’s power at the cost of his life and both fire an energy beam powerful enough to exorcise all of Suguru’s blights and force the latter to retreat.
Suguru ends up with his right arm ripped off and expresses his desire to possess Rika. After all of Suguru’s classmates are gone, Satoru Gojo arrives to the institute to confront Suguru. After talking with the latter, Satoru kills him out of respect, as the two were very close before these events. He also tells him that he won’t allow their superiors to have his body. He then meets his student and informs Yuta that he is a distant relative of his. When Rika’s curse is lifted, Satoru says that it was Yuta who cursed her and congratulates him for undoing his curse. Later, Satoru is with Yuta and informs him that it was Suguru who had his student ID.
