Recollection: Morse (心覚え Morse, Kokorooboe Morse) is the ninth episode of the second season of Tokyo Ghoul:re.



Kaneki and his ‘dragon’ kagune is out of control and kills everyone in its path. Furuta meets Mutsuki and tells her that the Oggai was the reason why Kaneki turned into a beast and that everything is her fault. Kanou is confronted by Kurona and before shooting himself with a gun, he confesses that people will now figure out the possibilities of using ghouls for medical purposes. The ghouls meet up with Hide and go to the CCG Headquarters in order to form an alliance and save Kaneki. After agreeing to work together, Nishino reveals to them that the only way to destroy this monster is by finding and extracting Kaneki’s body in order for the kagune to decay. Touka then remembers that she gave Kaneki her parents’ ring and suggests to use metal detectors to find his body through the massive kagune that has spread around the city. As the CCG and the ghouls work together to find his body, ‘dragon’ starts releasing monsters made from its own mass that attack everyone. The CCG fights off the monsters as the rest carry on with the search. Mutsuki then comes up to Urie and Yonebayashi blaming herself for the situation and trying to kill them but the Quinx squad talks to her, making her realize that she has been part of their ‘family’ all along.
