The episode started off slow with a rather dull flashback of Oboro and Gennosuke, but then it continues strong from then on afterwards and doesn't until it's finally over. Tenzen forcing himself upon Oboro was rather shocking that really kicked off the whole shock value of the episode, and then Jingoro getting all ansty and nearly killing a kid cause of it. Although a very minor part of the episode, Koshirou and his brief interaction with that kid provided some life to the Iga clan who have so far been seen as the antagonists get some good guy lovin'. The kid himself was nicely developed in his brief time, that little backflip he did sort of gave him some personality.
Everything after that was a wild ride, one that we are accustomed to seeing so far in Basilisk. Koshirou still under the impression that Oboro was being raped, is blinded to the fact that Gyoubu is crushing Tenzen's bones with pure strength, and then of course Jingoro would be the next to go out. Though once again Tenzen's mystery revival abilities makes us more curious. Couldn't have ended it any better ay.
