With episode 6 released yesterday, we are officially more than halfway throught the second season of The Promised Neverland and our main characters are officially three once more. Many fans dislike the new season since it started deviating from the manga, but the emotinal new episode promises interesting conflict. Here's all you need to know before episode 7:
The Promised Neverland Season 2 Episode 6 Recap
While episode 5 was quite action-packed, with the children on the run, episode 6 was all about emotional conflict. Emma, Ray, and Norman are together again in an emotional, if too idealized, and convenient reunion. But halfway through the episode, it becomes clear that their friendship might never again be uncomplicated.
Rather than being eaten by demons, Norman was taken to a different plantation that experimented on children. Being the genius that he is, Norman managed to escape along with other humans who - though older than him - treat him as their superior and heed his orders.
Norman has found out that demons' brains degenerate if they don't consume human meat and has come up with a way to hasten the process, ending them and making the world safe for humans again. But for Emma, this is not good enough. Season 1 has made it clear that she's a pacifist who will avoid casualties at all costs.
Having lived among demons for years, Emma has realized that they too have families and are not purely evil. Even if the younger children are quick to trust Norman, Emma can't forget Sonju and Mujika who helped her survive. But when she mentions Mujika, Norman's face twists and he refers to her as a 'heretic girl' suggesting he knows her. But how?
Norman is no longer the innocent, frail, smiling boy Emma knew. This is highlighted when his new companions are unable to reconcile his ruthless demeanor with Emma's image of him. But Emma has changed too and conflict between them seems inevitable.
Ray, meanwhile, seems fully supportive of Emma but he's been notably subdued this season, and we know he's often unpredictable and doing things his own way, so it'll be interesting to see his own position in the conflict.
