Episode Summary

Goku arrives at Beerus’ planet, curious to know what they have called him over for. Beerus and Whis explain that the Omni-King himself wants to meet with Goku. He wonders if this is about the tournament Omni-King had mentioned, but they do not know. Goku is reluctant to go, since the time machine is almost ready, but Beerus insists: when the Omni-King tells you to come “right away”, you do it!

Still, the Omni-King’s palace is so far away that even Whis would take two days to fly there, so they will have to ask Kaiōshin to teleport Goku there instead. Beerus warns Goku that the entire universe is riding on his behavior: if he makes the Omni-King mad, he might destroy the entire world, Beerus included! Back on Earth, repair work on the time machine has finally finished. Mai starts to run off to tell (Future) Trunks, but Bulma says he is still resting after his training with Vegeta. They should let him rest until the remaining preparations are finished.

Beerus wonders if they should make Goku change into something more appropriate, or bring a gift. Above all though, he orders Goku not to say anything about the time machine or Black, since this will just make Omni-King angry. He also instructs Whis to watch out for Kaiōshin and make sure nothing happens to him. Goku is surprised to see Beerus so concerned over someone, but Whis reveals that the Kaiōshin and Gods of Destruction are a “set”: if one dies, the other will too! Goku is amazed: that means if he wants to beat Beerus, he just needs to take down Kaiōshin! But he would rather not, since it would not be much fun that way. Even so, Beerus is angry at Whis for casually revealing such important information.

On Planet Babari, Zamasu and Gowasu continue to observe the natives fighting amongst themselves. Zamasu is disgusted at how they live without law or order, making no use of the intelligence the gods have given them. A Babarian runs to strike Zamasu, who kills him in retaliation. The two gods return to the Kaiōshin Realm of Universe 10, where Gowasu has Zamasu give back his Potara earrings, and criticizes his actions: all they had to do was leave, there was no need to kill that Babarian! What’s more, that Babarian might have gone on to have a big impact on Babarian history, so killing him might have changed history’s course.

Meanwhile, in Universe 7’s Kaiōshin Realm, everyone is amazed to hear about Goku’s invitation. Kibito has never been to Omni-King’s palace before, and even Elder Kaiōshin has only gone three times. They all warn Goku to behave himself, and Goku is a little annoyed at being constantly told this. Does he really seem so rude? Everyone says “yes”.

Using his Kai-Kai teleportation technique, Kaiōshin takes Goku and Whis to Omni-King’s palace. They are greeted by a short blue man with white hair, somewhat resembling Whis: the Great Priest. Kaiōshin and Whis greet the Great Priest, who in turn greets Goku. Whis apologizes that there was not enough time to change Goku into more formal attire, but the Great Priest is unconcerned, guessing that for Goku, what he is wearing now is as formal as it gets.

As the Great Priest escorts them inside, Goku tells Whis that despite his appearance, this guy seems strong. Whis confirms that the Great Priest is said to be one of the five most powerful people in all the universes. Though this makes Goku curious to fight him, which Whis advises against, especially since even Whis himself is no match.

With that, the group enters the Omni-King’s throne room. The Omni-King explains his business: he wants to be friends with Goku! Then they can play together! Goku is confused: is that really all he called him up here for? Omni-King wonders if there is something wrong with that, but Kaiōshin butts in and assures him that nothing would make Goku happier than to be his friend.

Omni-King keeps calling Goku by his full name, “Son Goku”, so he insists that just “Goku” is fine. Omni-King asks what Goku wants to call him in turn, and Goku suggests “Omni-chan”. Omni-King likes this, and wonders what they should play, but Goku tries to explain that he is busy and that playtime will have to wait. The Omni-King’s two attendants standing behind him take offense at Goku’s tone, but Omni-King tells them to shut up or be destroyed.

The Omni-King asks if Goku will come play with him once his urgent business is done, and Goku promises not only to do that, but to bring along an even better friend for him. As a seal of their promise, Omni-King has Goku play airplane with him. Omni-King finds this really fun and new, even though Goku considers it a basic form of play that anyone would know.

Omni-King is interested in learning more ways of playing, and Goku admits that his palace does look pretty boring. Omni-King will have to come play on Earth some time! Omni-King is happy to hear this, and gives Goku a small button. Press it, and the Omni-King will appear right away! With that, Goku heads back with Kaiōshin and Whis. Seeing them off, the Great Priest thinks the Omni-King has indeed gained an interesting friend.

Using Kai-Kai once again, Kaiōshin returns Goku and Whis to the Kaiōshin Realm. There, he asks Goku who he had in mind when he said he wouldd bring along an even better friend for Omni-King next time. Goku admits that he did not really have anyone particular in mind, but figured Omni-King would not let him leave unless he said something like that. The others are appalled: if Omni-King finds out, it will mean the end of the world!

In Universe 10, Gowasu asks Zamasu why he does not trust mortals. Tea is a mirror of the soul, and he can tell from the latest tea Zamasu has brewed that his heart is troubled. Zamasu says that according to Gowasu, mortals learn from their mistakes to create a better world, but from what he has seen, this is not the case. Like the people of Babaria, mortals simply never learn. When Gowasu summoned him here, he told Zamasu he would be able to learn justice. But is the justice of the gods nothing more than watching over mortals?

Gowasu asks Zamasu about his ideas on good and evil. Zamasu replies that evil must be destroyed, and justice is needed to ensure good can flourish. However, Gowasu believes that justice means properly balancing good and evil. Searching for the path of goodness despite being assailed by evil, that action is itself justice, which is why the gods gave mortals intelligence.

But Zamasu finds this talk unconvincing, saying that mortals have misused their god-given intelligence, as in the case of the violent Babarians or hubristic people like Son Goku who fight with gods. It is mortals themselves who are evil! Gowasu thinks that Zamasu’s strong sense of justice is splendid, but that sometimes gently leading a lost child back to the fold is the way to peace. He says Zamasu must not forget that gods are not absolute, and must learn too. With his speech over, he asks Zamasu to make some more tea. But Zamasu remains unmoved, and thinks to himself that merely watching over mortals is itself a sin.

On Earth, Bulma unveils the fixed time machine. She and the Pilaf Gang wave Trunks, Goku, and Vegeta off as they head into the future to confront Black. Once there, Goku is appalled at the destroyed state of West City. Getting out, Trunks finds Mai’s beanie on the ground, but no sign of her body. As he wonders about this, a group hiding in the ruins nearby fire rockets at them…
