Dragon Ball Super EP 116: Jiren Awakens, Is He Afraid Of Goku?

The latest episode of Dragon Ball Super has shown Kefla’s power that terrifies even the Gods of Destruction. It was so huge that Kefla’s Kiai was as strong as the impact of Jiren’s sudden punch to Maji Kayo. Kefla’s power was even enough to make Jiren’s eyes twitch during his meditation. If Goku is eliminated and Kefla remains in the tournament, it is possible that Jiren will stop meditating at last and take the matters into his hands.

As Kefla was about to finish Goku, a miracle once again happened and the Universe 7 Saiyan got his silver eyes back with the comeback of the Ultra Instinct. Kefla realized that she was once again in trouble. It seems like Kefla will not be able to land an attack against Goku on her form right now. That is why she will get all her best moves (and will add some new) to throw it to Goku. She is expected to power up further in the next episode.

But the biggest thing in this episode is Jiren waking up from his meditation. Perhaps, it is because of Kefla’s huge increase in power that will bring uneasiness to the Pride Trooper. Or perhaps, it is because of Goku being able to tap into Ultra Instinct again even without the use of a catalyst such as a Genki Dama.

And this thing right now is something terrific that even Beerus seem to want to fight Goku. Of course, it is still unknown if UI Goku vs Beerus would still happen, with the Universe 7’s fate being unsure right now. But there is surely something about the second appearance of Goku’s Ultra Instinct that even Whis, the only person that we know who have mastered it, seems to get his interest piqued.

Jiren decided to take a time off on his medication when Goku powered up further in his Ultra Instinct Form. It is still not clear if Jiren will join the fight. But why is he worried about a beaten up and stamina-low Son Goku in UI? Is there something that happened to Goku that makes Jiren fear him that he even decided to wake up from his meditation when Goku attained the state again?

It can be possible that Goku, who has been breaking up his limit since he fought Jiren, has now become a threat to Universe 11’s survival. Whatever it is that piqued the interest of Whis might have been noticed by Jiren. Perhaps, it is Goku’s final form of Ultra Instinct that Jiren is looking out for.
