Dragon Ball Super episode 48 titled “Hope Again!! Trunks Wakes Up in the Present,” showed how Future Trunks managed to escape from Black Goku and traveled back in the present time to ask help from Son Goku and other Z-fighters.
Dragon Ball Super episode 48 started with the clash between Future Trunks and the new nemesis, Black Goku. Future Trunks was forced to fight Black Goku after hearing multiple insults about how weak the Saiyans are. However, as expected, Future Trunks was easily beaten by Black Goku.
Future Trunks found a way to escape by launching an attack. He immediately went to the location of the time machine and inserted the fuel collected by Future Bulma. While he was up in the air, Black Goku saw him and was about to attack him. Luckily, he disappeared with a few seconds before Black Goku’s attack.
Black Goku was surprised and tried to look for Future Trunks. He used his ability to sense his opponent’s Ki but he sensed nothing. Future Trunks successfully reached the present but was badly injured after he attempted to fight.
Meanwhile, Present Trunks was having his Math class with Pilafs and his henchmen. This scene revealed how Trunks’ and Mai’s relationship was built. Unfortunately, it looked like we would not see any romance anymore since the Future Mai was already killed by the enemy.
Upon arriving in the present, Present Trunks noticed a spaceship that was about to land on Capsule Corporation. They noticed a familiar trademark in the spaceship so they immediately informed Bulma. To her surprise, she saw Future Trunks badly injured. She immediately contacted Vegeta through the communication device given to her by Beerus and Whis.
She informed them about the situation and asked for a ‘Senzu Beans’ (a.k.a Magic Beans). Bulma asked Present Trunks to go in an open ground and released his power. This made Son Goku easily tracked their location and used ‘Instant Transmission’. Son Goku went to Master Karin to get some ‘Senzu’ beans in order for Future Trunks to recover immediately.
When he finally opened his eyes, Future Trunks seemed to be in a state of shock. He thought that Son Goku was Black Goku and he remembered what happened including the death of his mother and Mai. To their surprise, Future Trunks attacked Son Goku and seemed to be uncontrollable.
Dragon Ball Super episode 48 showed how Future Trunks managed to escape from the enemy. Now, the question is how will Black Goku find a way to track his location. Also, with Future Trunks being in a state of shock, it seems like a fight between him and Son Goku is inevitable.
