Episode Summary

Whis, Beerus, and Goku are flying through space in order to investigate Zamasu, someone in Universe 10 who Whis and Beerus believe has the same ki as Black. Goku asks who exactly this “Zamasu” guy is, and Whis explains that he used to be a Kaiō in Universe 10, but due to his talent for battle, he is now being groomed as the next Kaiōshin.

Over in the Kaiōshin Realm of Universe 10, Zamasu is serving tea to Gowasu, the senior Kaiōshin. Gowasu compliments him on the delicious tea: only those pure of heart can make such good tea, which proves Zamasu’s mind is at peace. He shall humbly continue to train his mind and body in order to silently watch over the doings of mortals.

However Zamasu has something on his mind: are mortals really worth protecting? He has observed them endlessly repeat the same cycle: first flourishing, and then destroying themselves in wars. Should they not interfere to put a stop to these foolish mistakes? Gowasu explains that the role of the Kaiō and Kaiōshin is to create and observe; only the Gods of Destruction are allowed to directly interfere. Zamasu needs to understand his own role, and learn more about mortals.

Beerus and co. arrive and greet Gowasu: It has been a long time! Gowasu introduces Zamasu as his pupil, but Zamasu is shocked to see Goku. A mortal! What’s he doing here?! Goku very politely introduces himself: he is a Saiyan living on Planet 4,032-Green-877 in Universe 7… or “Earth”. Zamasu is surprised to hear that Goku is a Saiyan, and wonders why he is hanging out with a God of Destruction.

Goku compliments Zamasu as seeming pretty strong for a Kaiō, but Zamasu angrily tells Goku not to touch him. Next Goku requests a match against Zamasu, but Beerus tosses him aside, saying that can wait. He and Whis state their business: on Earth in Universe 7 there is somebody who wears a Time Ring, despite not being a Kaiōshin, and he looks exactly like Goku. Would they happen to know anything about that? Gowasu says he knows nothing about it, but Beerus and Whis request to see their Time Rings, to confirm that they are all present and accounted for.

Zamasu escorts them to the “temple” (while Whis notes to Beerus that Zamasu did not seem to know about the Time Rings). At the temple, Gowasu opens a box which contains four green Time Rings and one silver one, confirming that they are all there. He is curious why Beerus and Whis specifically came to Universe 10 asking about something that occurred in Universe 7, but they claim to be going around to every universe as part of their investigation.

Goku is still pestering Zamasu for a match, until finally Gowasu orders Zamasu to indulge him. This will be a part of Zamasu’s training, and help him understand mortals better… plus it is a chance to see how much he can restrain himself against a mortal. He tells Zamasu to hold back, but Beerus interjects, saying Zamasu definitely should not… otherwise, he might die!

Back on Earth, Trunks is wondering to himself why a Universe 10 Kaiō would have the same ki as Black, when Kuririn interrupts him: Gohan’s daughter sure is cute, right? Kuririn adds that he has got a kid of his own now too, although she is quite a handful. Trunks did not know Kuririn was married, and asks about his wife. As Kuririn hesitates, No. 18 walks in and greets Trunks: “Long time no see!” Marron also runs out and hugs Kuririn, and No. 18 explains that they came to check on him since he had not come home.

Trunks is shocked to realize No. 18 is Kuririn’s wife, while Kuririn says that it is a long story. No. 18 pointedly notes that Trunks killed the version of her that existed in his alternate future, and demands he pay her consolation for damages… thankfully though, she is just joking. Trunks goes off to check on Bulma, who is still repairing the time machine with help from the Pilaf Gang. Things are going well, and they take a break. Outside, Pilaf and Shuu observe Mai’s interactions with Trunks, and are determined to help make their love blossom. They try and get Mai to show off her gentle side, but she resents their interference.

In Universe 10, Goku becomes a Super Saiyan as he prepares to fight Zamasu, who notes that this transformation raises Goku’s ki up “several dozen fold”. Goku notes that Zamasu is the first god he has fought since Beerus, which is an even bigger surprise: if he fought Beerus, how can he still be alive? The match begins, and as Zamasu fights, Goku can sense he does have a ki similar to Black’s. At the same time Zamasu cannot believe that a mortal could be so strong.

While it seems to be a good match, in the end Goku is victorious. Goku again notes that Zamasu is really strong for a Kaiō, being even stronger than Universe 7’s Kaiōshin! “Let’s fight again sometime!” Having seen the Time Rings, Beerus and Whis are content to leave, as they cannot miss eating dessert. Heading home, the trio discuss that what they saw of Zamasu supports their suspicions that he and Black are one and the same. Perhaps they should destroy him now? But Goku says Zamasu did not seem like such a bad guy. Besides, while similar, his ki is not exactly the same as Black’s.

Still, the way his hand went numb when he hit Zamasu reminds Goku of when he fought Beerus. Beerus is angry at being lumped in with Zamasu, insisting that he is on a far higher level. However, Goku thinks that Zamasu still has room to improve, and may someday grow to be as scary a god as Beerus.

Back in Universe 10, Zamasu thanks Gowasu for allowing him to fight Goku. Gowasu thinks this helped Zamasu gain a deeper understanding of mortals, and relieved some of the distrust he feels toward them. Zamasu says he is embarrassed to realize how inexperienced he is, which Gowasu says is proof that he has grown. Gowasu asks Zamasu for another cup of tea, which Zamasu obediently pours.

But Zamasu’s thoughts tell a different story: “I knew it, mortals are dangerous. Son Goku, I won’t forget this!”
