I'm thinking AFO somehow tells Gigantomachia to get Shigaraki out of there. Gigantomachia just runs off with him, bad guys escape to fight another day.

No clue what Toga is thinking really.

That was something I think pretty much everyone knew was true. All in all this arc has been pretty damn great, one of my favorite so far

Endeavors cancelled, Hawks is probably cancelled, and Jeanist is alive? A little disappointing but still enjoying this arc.

Keep Jeanist's being alive in the context of the chapter too - part of what the villains were saying against Hawks is that he murdered Jeanist. Dabi had turned the public against them, but Jeanist being alive contradicts his story. Hawks and Endeavor will still have some issues going forth, but Jeanist showing up at the end is a huge save against the public morale bottoming out and casts doubt on the rest of their speech.

What I am most curious about is the 99.9% DNA match to Endeavor or whatever. Assuming Viz isn't making mistranslations... that would imply he's an Endeavor clone and not his son. I'm guessing the author meant to show the DNA test is conclusive that he's the son but used the wrong terminology.

I'm guessing we're going to get more impassioned speeches next chapter, perhaps a rebut from Endeavor. As long as he doesn't die to the hug-the-villain-trope...

It also begs the question - what happened to Toya? Why were they unable to find him?

For me Jeanist being alive is kind of a cop out. I don’t know why I feel that way but I do. Was hoping for this, “hero saturated society” to truly come crashing down.

I’m guessing the 99.9% is just manga bullshit, similar to Konans 600billion explosive papers in Naruto. If he was a clone I doubt he’d have the weakness of being burned by his own flames.

I don’t think Endeavors gonna die. He’s gotta face everyone, hero’s and citizens alike, after all these reveals. Everyone knew he was a dick, but now it’s been shown his a massive dick.

As for what happened to Toya.... your guess is probably better than mine.

I have no doubt it's going to. It's practically screaming that Midoriya is going to be the one to stand it up again like All Might. The #1 and #2 are really flawed characters, and now the world knows it. Based on what Hawks as said, they're also really the only ones qualified to be heroes (though he doesn't include himself) in the truest sense. Jeanist was killed off-panel, and for the #3 to go down like that seems like a waste. If we had gotten more growth out of Bakugo because of it maybe, but I don't think the impact was really delved into.

Endeavor does have that weakness since he overheats - but since Toya's flames were stronger than his I really don't think it was intentional. His hair turning white also probably was an indicator of something wrong too. Agreed that Endeavor's definitely not going to die.

They said they found a fragment of his lower jawbone, but Dabi obviously has an intact jaw. His chin is burned to hell and back though and he does have the rings/stitches holding his skin together on his chin even though it's not attached to undamaged skin. I'm guessing someone stole him, but if that's the case I wonder if his flames going out of control were the culprit's fault too.

Edit: Before I forget again... looks like no chapter next week.
