To say Gojo is overwhelmed at times is putting it lightly. But that’s good in a sense. He needs these pushes out of his comfort zone. Otherwise, he’s just going to back away like we saw in this episode. It is understandable that he’d be uneasy and overwhelmed. Even if it was partly by choice, he is going from relative social isolation to the social circle of one of the popular girls in the school. Completely understandable that he’d be uneasy about what people are saying. But it’s also true that he was making the wrong choice there. The point was already made to him in episode 1. He’s got to stick with what he cares about. The friendship that is forming with Marin is something. He shouldn’t be running away from that because he’s concerned about what people he doesn’t even know are saying. It is tough though.
