Hi, Everyone! This is Episode 40 of Healin' Good Precure and Guaiwaru appeared in front of the girls after they defeated King Byogen!
Guaiwaru claimed his plan worked as he wants the girls to defeat King Byogen so as to take over his place. He then absorbed multiple Mega parts on himself and became King Guaiwaru. Shinodine and Daizuren also appeared and Shinodine did not believe that King Byogen is dead and immediately went off on her own.
Daizuren didn't really care who is in charge as long he gets to pollute the Earth. King Guaiwaru then battle the girls with ease. He even "thanks" Cure Sparkle for his plan as he purposely left a portal for the girls to enter in the previous episode. Cure Sparkle was shocked by her actions however the girls who are getting beaten make a hasty retreat further into the rocks.
The girls recovered for a bit. Latte could sense that King Guaiwaru has arrived in the city and started creating multiple Gigabyogens to pollute it. Nodoka told everyone they need to hurry back however Hinata blamed herself in the ordeal they are in now. She started blaming herself as she is always making mistakes unlike the others but the girls including Nyatoran told her that no one is perfect and she too has her good points that help the girls many times.
Latte could sense some positive energy near the rocks and suggested they focus their energy on it to create a portal back to Earth. They found a small hill and transformed immediately. Daizuren has found them and tried to destroy the hill. But the girls managed to hold him off enough to use Healing Arrow to open a portal. Cure Fontaine, Sparkle and Earth entered the portal but Daizuren blasts the portal causing it to weaken. The three girls on the other side blast enough energy for Cure Grace to escape back to Earth.
The girls made it back to Earth where they saw the city being attacked by Gigabyogens and headed straight to stop it...
Well, we now know who is the backstabber of the generals and it is actually the Muscular Guaiwaru who actually used his brains to come up with this plan. But seeing this is the last quarter, King Byogen is not really dead and will probably return in his true form and maybe kill Guaiwaru for his betrayals.
Seeing that this is also partially a Hinata focused episode, Hinata was in tears for falling into Guaiwaru's trap but the girls knew that Hinata is not to blame and Nyatora who is the best partner for Hinata knew that her naive will always get them into all sort of troubles. Despite how many times the girls were in trouble due to Hinata's blunder, they love her because she is too stubborn to give up. (Which is why most of the Yellow cures have the best development among the cures)
After that, it was just a race against time to escape from the realm. I was expecting Cure Grace having a showdown with Daizuren, seeing how he was smirking at her every time they meet which will probably happen in the next following episodes.
Overall, this episode is a closure to Hinata's arc as we begin the beginning of the end for our girls to battle King Guaiwaru. However, in the next episode preview, a shadowy figure appeared in front of them! Could that be King Byogen's real form? Until then, stay safe and see you in the next post!
