Kon's Guide: Previous 12th Division Captain, Urahara Kisuke! A tricky merchant!
We finally learn why there are 12 Vice Captains. It is because Kaien was turned into a hollow.
Metastacia, the hollow in this episode, had two different types of abilities. One is when you touch it, you lose your Zanpakuto. The other is merging with a spirit type body, and eating them from the inside.
We finally see Jushiro Ukitake's mysterious disease. He has Tuberculosis which turned his hair white in three days.
Ichigo looks very similar to Vice Captain Kaien Shiba of the 13th division.
The origin of Ukitake's quote in episode 9 about the two kinds of fights, the fight for life and the fight for pride, is featured in this episode.
Rukia: Captain. Kaien has been disarmed. We have to help him!
Ukitake: But if we were to step in now, what would become of Kaien's pride? Even, if by going to his aid, you were somehow successful in saving his life, the cost of such an act would certainly be the death of his pride forever.
Rukia: That doesn't make any sense at all, Captain! What good is pride to a man if he's dead!?
Ukitake: Listen well, and remember these words. There are two kinds of battles, and those of us who have chosen to be warriors and to fight those battles must always be aware of the difference between the two. There are battles to protect lives, and there are battles that are fought to defend honor. Right now, Kaien is fighting with all his heart and soul to defend honor... that of his men who died... his own honor... and above all, his beloved wife's honor.
Kaien: Let me go after her, Captain. She couldn't have gotten very far.
Ukitake: No, don't! Think about it, Kaien! Following her is exactly what the enemy wants you to do.
Kaien: That may be, but... it's still the only option. This monster that's controlling Miako... it used her to kill her own men. Men who trusted her. Miako's honor has been defiled. You must let me go, Captain!
Kaien: Hello! I'm lieutenant Kaien Shiba, welcome aboard.
Rukia: I see, yes sir.
Kaien: What did you just say? What kind of a greeting is that supposed to be? I'm your commanding officer! You are supposed to state your name and say pleased to meet you sir! What's your name damn it!
Rukia: It's Rukia Kuchiki, sir.
Rukia: And...and I'm pleased to meet you, sir!
Kaien: Alright, you're OK, Rukia!
Kaien: Why do you gasp every time you see me?
Kaien slices the Hollow's tentacles and grabs one of them.
Hollow: You're fast. But...you touched it.
Kaien: How many Death gods have you eaten so far?
Hollow: Well now, how many. Sorry, but I don't remember the number.
Kaien: Have you regretted it even once?
Hollow: That's a stupid question, my boy. I have a heart just like you people. There hasn't been a night I haven't regretted after eating Death gods. Even now, I do regret I didn't manipulate that woman Death god more before eating her.
Kiyone: Oh my, you're so cool, Kaien-sama!
Sentarō: You hear that? "I'm on your side," he says!
Kiyone: No wonder you love him! Putty in his hand!
Kaien: Kiyone! Sentarō! You two were off getting drunk on your own again, weren't you?
Sentarō: Kuchiki! Don't take it personal. I'm from Rukongai, too, and when I first joined there were some who talked smack. But for booger jerks like that, just smear some boogers on them or something.
Kiyone: Boogers. hahaha!
Kaien: (shaking head furiously): God, you're annoying! What annoying freakin' drunks. Both of you, sober up!
