Dr. Stone Season 2 Episode 11 Recap
The Kingdom of Science successfully captures Hyoga and Homura. Senku survives the encounter, but Tsukasa suffers fatal wounds. Kohaku says it’s finally over, but Senku replies that they are only getting started. They have yet to build a kingdom of science from scratch. With Tsukasa’s people as the new additions to the team, everyone continues working on creating and building things. Gen de-petrifies a manga artist. Yo returns and offers to help rebuild the statues to compensate for his crimes. Tsukasa informs Ukyo and Taiju regarding the broken statues’ whereabouts.
Meanwhile, Chrome informs the other villagers of their victory. As for Senku, he starts creating a superglue to seal Tsukasa’s wounds. However, it’s not the ultimate solution. Senku tells Gen the superglue is there to buy more time for Tsukasa. While Kohaku brings the captives their food, Hyoga criticizes the Kingdom of Science. Kohaku is unfazed and expresses her faith in Senku. Senku then informs Tsukasa that he can only save him by turning him back to stone.
In the meantime, Senku creates a refrigerator that will freeze Tsukasa’s body. Tsukasa spends his final moments chatting with Senku. Shortly after, he passes away and is placed in the fridge. Mirai cries over Tsukasa’s frozen body and promises to protect him. Meanwhile, the search for the mysteries behind the petrification continues. Senku says the next step is building a ship. With that, the Kingdom of Science’s next journey is across the sea.
