Does Megumi die in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 16?

Megumi suffers severe injuries after fighting with Haruta, but he survives thanks to Sukuna. As soon as Sukuna defeated Jogo, he sensed Mahoraga’s presence and rushed to Megumi’s side. Finding no way to defeat Haruta, Megumi used his trump card despite Gojo suggesting otherwise.

Megumi has several times attempted to summon Mahoraga before but always stops at the right moment. Firstly, he made the hand sign during his fight with Sukuna outside of the Juvenile Detention Center. Then, he again attempted it in a cave under the Yasaochi Bridge.

However, he finally summons his strongest Shikigami in the Shibuya arc. Megumi passes out with severe injuries. The fight between him and Haruta will be fully adapted in Season 2 Episode 17, in a flashback sequence.

Mahoraga is a double-edged sword, so summoning him would kill Megumi along with his opponent. For better or for worse, Sukuna saves Megumi by defeating Mahoraga. Sadly, he also destroys the entire Shibuya ward with him. He also hints that he has some important plans regarding Megumi.

The entire fight happened while Megumi was still passed out. Yuji regained control of his body, and he saw the destruction. He completely breaks down after seeing that and still blames himself for the death of thousands of people.
