Chapter 244 recap
Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 244 began with a flashback as Yuji and Higuruma entered the battlefield to fight Sukuna. The flashback saw Kusakabe leading a discussion with the other Tokyo Jujutsu High allies on who should fight Sukuna and what order they'd go in.
This prompted Noritoshi Kamo to bow out of the fight in order to move his family overseas, to which Kusakabe said that he needs people who’re willing to risk their lives for this fight to be a win.
Higuruma then brought up his Cursed Technique and Domain Expansion, saying he should go for Sukuna since he can possibly get access to the Executioner’s Sword.
However, a major problem with this was the multitude of crimes Sukuna has committed and their legal range. This cast doubt on whether or not Sukuna would get a death sentence. However, Yuji said he had an idea as the issue returned to the present.
Mei Mei distracted Sukuna with her crows while Yuji landed a punch on Sukuna, which seemingly affected him. Higuruma then used his Domain Expansion as a flashback to reveal Yuji’s plan to get Sukuna a Death Sentence by making him a codefendant for the Shibuya Massacre. The issue ended with Higuruma introducing this new evidence to implicate Sukuna.
What to expect (speculative)
With the most significant part of Itadori and Higuruma’s matchup against Sukuna underway, Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 245 will likely give a quick answer on whether or not Yuji’s plan works.
The death sentence is just a means to an end for Higuruma to access the Executioner’s Sword, after all, so there’s not a ton of reason to spend too much time on this section of the fight.
Likewise, Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 245 will likely see Yuji and Higuruma return to actually fighting Sukuna by the issue’s end.
Fans can expect this section to focus on Yuji and his new Cursed Technique, which seems to have actually affected Sukuna based on the punches he has landed so far.
