So now that marude, who's supposed to be dead, is back (and matsuri too for that matter, hes even the one that announced marude's death) what does that mean for the ccg? Obv marude is going to expose him if hes planning on "taking back" the ccg, and everyone's going to know he was a fraud. But ? Do you think the ccg will go back to functioning somewhat normally with matsuri as the head now or it'll just keep collapsing? I wonder how the members will react
If their intention was to take back the CCG it seems they’ve failed. Six hours after the fact, Furuta is still in command and he was also able to rouse two major squads for an incredibly important and brutal raid mission.
However, I am not entirely sure that Furuta intends upon living past this one raid. It’s possible that after Goat is destroyed, Marude and Matsuri might return to reclaim the CCG from a weakened Furuta, especially since he makes it seem like he’s ambivalent and didn’t plan for what happens after this part.
He only cares that Marude and Matsuri were unable to interrupt this forward motion, or the current momentum of his plans. Regardless of if they stop him after this point, as long as this goes off without a hitch it seems Furuta will be able to summon dragon in some way.
Though we still don’t know how, or what or who dragon even is. My own personal interpretation of Marude’s words and actions against Furuta is that he lost the battle and was planning to take out Furuta in one fell sweep, but Furuta’s fleeing interrupted those plans.
So therefore, Marude had no choice but to go back in the shadows. What he says to Urie implies that Furuta will return with V and kill him if Urie stays behind, and therefore Urie should join their faction.
The ending text also implies that all of them are going to flee underground. So Marude’s goals of taking back the CCG are not yet reached though they definitely might try again soon with Urie’s help.
As far as my own prediction, I don’t think Matsuri will be able to return that easily and become a normal head for the CCG at the end of this arc. My own prediction is that it’s going to devolve into a three way face off, Furuta w/ dragon and V holding the CCG up as a puppet body, the CCG defectors and loyalists under Marude fighting for a restored CCG not really caring about the fate of ghouls, and then Kaneki with Goat fighting for the sake of ghouls.
Then eventually obviously, the two latter factions will have to join together to defeat Furuta and work out something after the fact from the details of their truce. I think there’s pretty heavy foreshadowing though that even though Marude might be shooting right now for a returned CCG, probably without the presence of V and with Matsuri with some kind of leash on him as the cermonial bureau head to return public confidence back in them, it’s more likely that the CCG in the end game will never be restored or function normal again.
It’s been hinted since 118/119 that Furuta’s actions are going to lead not to reform, but to the complete end of the CCG. Something that we received a refresher on in 128, “Meal”.
It’s likely that just from this point forward, like Aogiri, like the white suits and the blades, the CCG is just a dying organization that has no place of belonging in the new world that the characters are trying to create.
