Previous Episode Recap
The previous episode of Demon Slayer finally assured fans that Tanjiro and the others are alive. Despite getting stabbed and thrown off roofs, they dust off their injuries and stand their ground.

However, the two demons catch up to him, Gyutaro traps him in a burning house. He offers to turn Tanjiro into a demon. But he refuses by headbutting the demon.

When Daki intervenes to save him, Zenitsu comes out of nowhere. He distracts and begins attacking her. Tanjiro fights the upper-rank demon, but he realizes he can not stop him alone.
It is then that Tengen appears and joins the fight. Tanjiro watches in awe and shock as the sound hashira takes on the demon all by himself.
