Awakened Child: incarnation (めざめた子 incarnation, Mezameta ko incarnation) is the eighth episode of the second season of Tokyo Ghoul:re.



In the banquet of Kaneki and Touka’s wedding, Mutsuki and the rest of the CCG forces invade and start attacking them. Meanwhile, Urie and Kuroiwa go to confront Furuta in the CCG headquarters and try to prove that he does not take sane and reasonable decisions. When they go inside his office, they are attacked by Roma who ends up being the SSS rate ghoul named Dodgy Mother and Shikorae, where Kuroiwa gets badly injured but Urie manages to kill them both. Furuta stabs Kuroiwa in the head and later on, Maruda comes in and shoots him but doesn’t kill him. He is accompanied by Hide who asks for Urie’s help. Deep underground, Touka is fighting with Mutsuki while Tsukiyama, Nishio, and Yomo are against the Suzuya squad and Kaneki fights the Oggai squad. Soon, Suzuya starts attacking Kaneki and they engage into a huge fight but Kaneki realizes that Touka is cornered and in danger and goes to her rescue. After being brutally torn to pieces by the Oggai squad, Kaneki releases his inner beast and produces probably the biggest kagune ever seen.
