Does Inosuke Die in Demon Slayer Season 2?

The simple answer is no. Inosuke does not die in the finale of season 2 of Demon Slayer. The event happens when Tanjirou fails to keep the Upper-Rank Six’s primary holder in check. Gyuutarou takes the chance and stabs Inosuke using his poisoned sickle. The weapon seems to go right through the heart of the Demon Slayer. He falls off the roof and is unconscious for a while. The poison spreads into his body but does not affect Inosuke because he can shift his internal organs at will. This is also why even though he got stabbed in his heart at that time, his heart is alright for now. 

However, things still look problematic for Inosuke, and his health gradually deteriorates. Zenitsu reveals that Inosuke’s condition is getting worse as his heart grows weaker. Worried for their friend, Tanjirou and Nezuko try to observe Inosuke’s condition. Tanjirou starts panicking and thinking of ways to save his companion and friend. But, Nezuko comes up with a better idea. She uses his Blood Demon Art and burns all the poison that was running in Inosuke’s veins. As a result, Inosduke is revived and slowly starts getting better. In a penultimate episode, Inosuke is seen joining for his upcoming battles.
