Previous Episode Recap!

In the previous episode of MHA Season 5, the League of Villain got trapped into the siege organized by the Meta Liberation Army. While Shigaraki was under the protection of his guards, the other members were struggling to find an opening to escape. Twice was also trapped in Skeptic’s arms. But when he looked around the chaos, he realized that his quirk could save the League. Hence, Twice unleashed his fullest potential and multiplied into a hundred clones.

Later on, Dr. Ujicako called Gigantomachia to ask him for help. He asked the villain to reach Daika City and rescue Tomura Shigaraki and his gang. In the meantime, Shigaraki tried to use his quirk over the main building and disintegrate the base of the structure. Twice reached the top of the tower to fight Re-Destro. But the army leader killed all of Twice’s clones all by himself. The episode ended with Re-Destro feeling jars in the building as it started to collapse.
