The White Clad members prepare to blast the Nether and ultimately destroy the Tokyo Empire. "Fire Force" Season 2, Episode 22 is likely going to revolve around Shinra and company's plan to stop the White Knight named Ritsu.

The official website released the synopsis and spoiler stills for "Fire Force" Season 2, Episode 22 hinting at Dr. Giovanni and Ritsu's plot to destroy the Tokyo Empire. Company 8 will have to come up with a plan to prevent the White Clad from blowing up the Nether.

In the last "Fire Force" Season 2 episode, after beating Orochi, Juggernaut is severely injured from the attacks. Meanwhile, Tamaki kills the rest of the Infernals before they could attack Juggernaut.

Later, two Purple Haze knights appear before Tamaki and a fierce battle begins. Tamaki vows to protect Juggernaut and take him to the surface. However, the opponents are extremely powerful and Tamaki could feel the heat. Just when she is about to give up, Captain Obi and Gustav arrive to rescue them.

Despite not possessing any real fire-manipulating abilities, Obi manages to knock out one of the Purple Haze knights named Sasori. In the meantime, Gustav charges at the second knight and headbutts to defeat him.

In the Nether, Shinra faces Dr. Giovanni who has transformed himself into an insect using the Adolla Burst. Dr. Giovanni reveals that the lab they found inside the Nether was nothing but a trap for the Special Fire Force.

Oze and Hinawa are up against Iron who can harden his body using fire. Iron blasts fire beams at the duo. They rush to find cover and find a way to defeat the villain. Oze manages to deflect the flames and Hinawa finds Iron's weak points.
