Dr. Stone Wiki

The Medusa's True Face (メデューサの素顔 Medyūsa no Sugao) is the forty-eighth episode of the Dr. Stone anime, and the thirteenth episode of the third season.


Ryusui made a spectacular comeback through a crazy and disorganized prison escape. He used the oxygen cylinder he had crafted to awaken Taiju Oki on the ocean floor, and together, they rescued the craftsman Kaseki. With Kaseki's resurrection, Senku quickly progresses in making the most powerful three-dimensional weapon, the "drone." He revives his remaining allies one after another and prepares for a counterattack. Meanwhile, Kohaku and her spy team, who are infiltrating the inner palace, are approaching an important secret on the island!!

Plot Details[]

Taiju begins freediving to retrieve the statues. Kaseki is revived, and with his help, Senku makes the drone propeller by coating feathers in plastic attached to a fidget spinner. Taiju collects all the statues, including an extra statue that has been petrified for years. In the citadel, Ginro is chosen to marry the Master. Moz deduces that Kohaku is the infiltrator. Terrified of the Master's impending molestation, Ginro decides to use a gas bomb Senku made from vinegar, alcohol, and sulfuric acid to cause the Master intense mental confusion. Entering the Master's room, Ginro encounters Ibara who insists all girls traditionally must satisfy him first before marrying the Master. Exposed, Kohaku begins fighting Moz. Ginro neutralizes Ibara with the gas and discovers the Master was petrified years ago so Ibara could secretly take over. Moz is attracted to Kohaku for her beauty and strength and is irritated; she rejects him for lacking honor. Ginro is fatally stabbed by Ibara, but he manages to tell Kohaku the Master was almost certainly Soyuz's father. To save his life, Kohaku provokes Kirisame into petrifying them both, trusting Senku to find and revive them. As the weapon activates, Kohaku sees it clearly for the first time—a complex scientific device she dubs the Medusa, from a story Senku told her of the mythical Greek monster.
