Make sure you tag spoilers if you feel you have to add them.

After this weeks episode what do you theorize will happen next? How will the king be taken down?

my theory:

Radiation Poisoning, even in the smallest nuke the radiation left behind near the source is enough to kill most people within minutes, the king was basting in that soup until youpi went in and got him, he has got to be sopping with radiation right now. Cockroaches are immune to radiation but not ants, as far as ive seen nowhere in the show did the ant queen eat other insects of any kind, so they should not be immune. Furthermore the king's birth was followed by a human baby so that suggests the king was made mostly from human meat which would make him very vulnerable to radiation.

Also think it would be poetic, the king gets taken down by something a lowly cockroach can survive, something unseen and unimagined by the chimera ants, that would speak to the gravity of humanities long existence and support netero's last words to him about human evolution and how scary we can be.

There is some nice discussion to be had here and the last Hunter x Hunter episode was great.... however we don't really allow individual episode discussion thread and we already have a discussion thread for the Chimera Ant Arc.

Feel free to repost your thoughts there, I know it isn't necessarily "spoiler free" but to be honest forums never are

Here is a link to the other thread!: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-793007/hunter-x-hunter-chimera-ant-arc-discussion?pg=0

I hope you keep enjoying the show and having fun with Crunchyroll!
