To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 10

Eko of the Clay Pot People

With To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 10, we’ve moved away from Bon’s arc. Bon is still an important character and we’re going to see more of him. But, we’re now in Eko’s arc. She’s a young girl from the clay pot tribe.

What exactly is the clay pot tribe, though? Eko and her brother were being displayed as oddities in a circus tent. Kahaku described their people as being very rare. And Bon even compared the existence of the clay pot people to the existence of immortals.

Based on how people perceive the clay pot people, you’d think they have some magical powers. But, that doesn’t appear to be the case. In reality, what makes the clay pot people so special is their distance from the modern world. They’re effectively an uncontacted tribe and their customs are alien to us.

The clay pot people get their names from the clay pots they keep with them at all times. These clay pots are full of clay mud. And the clay pot people use this mud to communicate with each other. Instead of vocalizing words, they spread the mud on their clay pots in different ways to “speak.”

Now, you may be wondering what Eko brings to the table if she has no magical power. How is she going to be of use to Fushi? I think Eko’s value comes from what Fushi can learn by interacting with her. He can learn how to communicate with anyone.

For example, he already figured out he can understand Eko if he takes the form of her brother. Let’s say he comes across someone who speaks a language he doesn’t speak. All he needs to do is take the form of someone else who speaks it.

Fushi’s Ark

After only a few weeks of training, Fushi managed to create 3 kilometers of “himself.” That’s to say, he was able to spread objects connected to him over a 3-kilometer radius. By doing this, he could sense everything that was happening in that area. He even sensed when a Nokker came nearby.

Imagine if instead of a ship and a forest, Fushi created a city. He’d be able to keep an eye on everything that happened within its limits. That’s a bit 1984-ish, but it could also save a lot of people. The entire city would have Fushi as an alarm system.

Is an enemy attacking? Fushi would know when, where from, and how many there are. Did a fire break out in a section of the city? Fushi would know the second it happens and could stop it from spreading. Was a crime committed? There’s nowhere for criminals to hide from Fushi.

There are some other benefits to this ability. Not only can Fushi sense things within his domain, but he can also control the domain itself. He can create traps, open and close pathways, and more. He could even generate food on the tables of everyone in his city.

And, on top of all that, he can effectively teleport within his domain, as well. All he has to do is generate a new body for himself somewhere and transfer his mind to it. He can’t yet be in multiple places at once. But, it’s probably only a matter of time.

One drawback of Fushi’s new power is, as Bon put it, his loss of humanity. The more powerful and omnipotent Fushi becomes, the less relatable he is to humans. At what point does he lose touch with individuals and view humans as a collective?

Immortal Friends

At the end of Episode 10, Bon says he’s returning to Uralis to find some immortal allies. But, why is he so confident he can find other immortals within the kingdom? There has never been any indication that there are other immortals besides Fushi.

Well, I have a feeling that Bon’s plan is to manufacture some immortals. In the preview for the next episode, we’re introduced to Kai, Hairo, and Messar. As far as we know, none of these men are immortal. So, how is Bon planning to make them immortal?

The answer seems pretty clear. When these men die, Bon’s going to have Fushi revive them. But, I have a feeling Bon won’t tell Fushi about his power of revival. Instead, he’ll probably lie and say there’s something unique about these specific men. Though, eventually, Fushi’s going to learn the truth.

Of course, it’s also possible that Bon does reveal the full truth to Fushi. However, even if that’s the case, Kai, Hairo, and Messar seem pretty important. From the looks of it, these three men are all professional soldiers. That’s what Fushi needs for his immortal army. Someone like March being immortal doesn’t really help in fighting the Nokkers.

Another thing to consider is how having immortal soldiers combines with Fushi’s domain. If the battle is taking place within Fushi’s domain, he’ll know the second his soldiers die. And, in response, he can immediately revive them anywhere on the battlefield.

The one question I still have is whether or not the Nokkers can “steal” these other immortals. We know they can steal the various forms Fushi takes. But, can they steal people from Fushi whom he’s revived? Does it work the same way? I assume not. But, I don’t know yet.

Conclusion

What do you think of To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 10? Do you think there’s something else special about the clay pot people? Has Fushi become a curse since he can use domain expansion? And, do you agree with me that Bon is going to manufacture some immortals? Let me know in the comments.
