As Endeavor and others fight the Nomus, Mirko entered the facility where Shigaraki is kept.

She knew something was wrong as her Rabbit instincts were screaming. She was aware that Shigaraki should not come out.

Mirko attacked the vat, which housed Shigaraki, in an attempt to break it. The heroes arrived at the chamber and Mirko announced that Shigaraki should not wake up at any cost.
