JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Season 5 Episode 27: Recap
The 27th episode of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, titled “Sky Guy,” starts with Emporio riding a plane with Ermes and Jolyne on autopilot mode. It seems that they are on a mission, and Jolyne tells him to move west as she senses the presence of the man there in three to four different locations.
Suddenly they are attacked by a bright purple light, and they cannot open their eyelids. All three of them started to bleed from their eyes, and the helicopter lost its direction. They feel something is in the helicopter with them, and in order to catch it, Jolyne spews out her threads, but to no avail. The thing was attacking them so quickly that they were not able to catch it.
Also, they could do nothing to protect themselves. Jolyne figures that if they could catch it where it is going, they might have a chance to defeat it. They jumped out of the plane while it was in the air. While falling, they finally saw what attacked them.
It was a small, rocket-shaped thing that was moving too fast to be seen. They destroyed one, but more started coming. Jolyne then took out a string and tied it to the plane, which crashed into the water. They soon realize that they had seen these creatures somewhere, and that is when the perpetrator of the attack appeared. He seemed casual and relaxed. Our group wondered if he was part of the enemy group.
In the flashback, we see the life of this new person, Rikiel, who grew up in a tough environment, not knowing who his father was. Since the age of 16, his eyes had been dropping down on him, and no one could tell the reason why. We see that whenever he is nervous, his hands and face sweat, and he finds it difficult to breathe.
While in his worst form, this man gave confidence to Rikiel and made him realize his powers, “live rod.” The man made him realize his strength and told him to leave, as his power was so formidable that he was unable to stand in his presence. He tells him to understand his powers and use them effectively.
After realizing what the rods could do, Ermes and Jolyne set out to fight Rikiel. They soon understood that his powers were more powerful in close combat and less accurate over a large area of land, so they decided to stay far away from him. They attacked him with their special rocks, and he started to lose some of that confidence.
Riekel attacked them, and their bodies started to deteriorate. They figure out that the creature feeds by attacking the body heat. Knowing this, Jolyne asks for the lighter and lights herself on fire. With so much heat, he could not understand which part of the body to attack and, at last, got beaten himself.
After Jolyne defeats him, we find out that the priest they are in search of could be the biological brother of her relative. The episode ended on a cliffhanger, and it would be interesting to find out the truth in the upcoming episodes.
