The latest episode of Dr. Stone Season 3 continues to live up to its reputation by being unpredictable, and we finally understood what the title of the episode “Joker” meant. This season Dr. Stone has kept the viewers on the edge of their seats, biting their nails and wondering what is going to happen next.
While things may not have been on the Kingdom of Science’s side for a while, the latest episode came out with many events that see them having a new chance in this war. Senku’s trump card was Hyoga and it was a gamble since he did not consider the latter would help him at all, but he did indeed help them.
However, it seems like he is still not enough to fight Moz alone. But for what it’s worth, we had Yo doing his job getting the petrification device and actually making a contribution. With Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 17 ending like this, fans are looking forward to the next one.
Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 18 is going to be the next installment, and it is scheduled to be released next week without any breaks. As of now, there isn’t a preview available that could hint to us what this episode could be about, so we are left with no choice but to speculate on the matter.
But what we do have about the upcoming episode is its details. This post will include the Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 18’s release date and time for when it comes out and where it will be available to watch once it is out. So with that being said, let’s dive into all of this, starting with the recap of the previous episode.

Recap And Review
Dr. Stone Season 3 Episode 17 continues with Senkus’ boat catching up to Magma, but in that time, the latter has wasted one bullet. Nikki gets the gun from him and gives it to Yo, and Senku fills up the gun with magnesium. Yo shoots it in the air scaring Ibara’s men and many of them go away.
Senku and the others get on board the ship but Moz also catches up to them and before Yo shoots him, Moz knocks him off the ship. Moz chases the group into a corner, but Senku reveals he wants to come here and revive Hyoga.
Hyoga first sees who he should side with and realizes that Moz is not a good ally and thus fights with the side of the Kingdom of Science. Taking this opportunity, Senku and the others get out of the ship and move to the island as Senku has something there.
Meanwhile, we see that Soyuz and the others have completed fixing Master’s statue and bring him out in the open to reveal Ibara’s trick, but given that they’re far away, it does not seem convincing. Whereas Ibara plans to petrify the whole island, but Kirisame is against this idea, and thus Ibara also turns into stone, but Yo shoots him in the hand and acquires Medusa.
Release Date & Where to Watch
The upcoming episode will surely get this war into its finale, and it seems like, at this moment, things are going well. Ibara is a no threat without his companion, and since he just freezes Kirisame as well, there is no one who is going to protect him.
But he still tries to make sure that no one finds out and might go after the statue. But the main problem will be Moz, as he seems way stronger than Hyoga and might go after Senku again.
