Todo has proven to be an incredibly reliable character time and time again and now in the final battle against Sukuna, he is ready to deliver once again. In the previous chapter, a flashback revealed how Itadori Yuji learned the Reversed Curse Technique and Simple Domain through Ui Ui’s Body-Swap Technique.

Sukuna unleashed his Domain but failed to hold it for a long time. After banishing the Domain, Sukuna conjured the ‘Divine Flame’ with the command ‘open’.

According to Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 259 spoilers, the chapter begins with a flashback of Kamo and Choso teaching Itadori how to use Blood Manipulation. Kamo taught Itadori the properties of Convergence and also refused Choso’s attempts to teach Itadori the techniques of “Supernova”, claiming that he should instead focus on stopping the bleeding and stitching himself back together.

Choso was seemingly disgruntled at being unable to teach Itadori anything himself. Itadori also revealed that after Kusakabe, the second person he switched his body with was Yuta Okkotsu through Ui Ui’s technique during training. The chapter then reveals the details of Sukuna’s ‘Divine Flame’.

According to the spoilers, Sukuna can only use ‘Divine Flame’ after going through the complete incantation process of Dismantle and Cleave. Currently, the Flames do not have their usual power and speed, a problem that Sukuna sought to resolve with another Binding Vow. It is still unclear if Divine Flames constitute a Domain, but it has been mentioned that it causes decompression and an increase in air pressure, which can kill every living thing within its range.

During his fight with Gojo Satoru, Sukuna had to constantly change the conditions of his domain, which reduced its efficiency and was insufficient to sustain Divine Flames. Presently, Choso creates a Blood barrier to protect Itadori before the flames can touch him, thus sacrificing himself in the process. As Choso finally departs, he and Itadori thank each other for being brothers, and Itadori starts to give up as the flames start to consume everything around him.

Just as things start appearing grim for Itadori, Aoi Todo enters the battlefield. Chapter 259 reveals that Todo and Mei Mei planned to get people out of Sukuna’s Domain by exchanging them with Mei Mei’s crows using Todo’s Boogie Woogie. This required Todo to expand his Cursed Technique’s range, which was difficult for him after losing his hand. However, he claimed to feel the “heartbeat” of his technique.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 260 spoilers show Todo’s Vibraslap is a replacement for the arm he lost in Shibuya while fighting Mahito. The musical instrument consists of a wooden box and a metal bar inside. With the Vibraslap, he has exchanged clapping for shaking, so every time the metal hits the wooden box, it is registered as a clap. Todo also set a Binding Vow to limit the number of swaps per shake. With this technique, Todo can swap multiple people at the same time, allowing him to create an opening for Itadori while confusing Sukuna.

Mei Mei and Todo did not let Itadori in on Todo’s plan, fearing that Sukuna would be able to find out about their plan if there was any remaining connection between Itadori and the King of Curses. However, Todo could not move Choso and Itadori out because they were at the center of Sukuna’s Domain and out of Todo’s range.

Jujutsu Kaisen Chapter 259 spoilers return to the present as Todo informs Itadori that their allies are safe and does not inform him about his and Mei Mei’s plan. Itadori steels his resolve after hearing those words and they take a stance against Sukuna. It is going to be quite interesting to see how the fight shapes up considering Sukuna cannot use his Divine Flame technique right now.

As fans mourn the death of Choso, they are also bracing themselves for a team battle between the duo and the King of Curses. Hopefully, the official translation will give a better explanation of the issue of Todo’s Cursed Technique and the details of Sukuna’s Divine Flame.
