We finally know who Yoruichi is, a former captain and the God of Flash. She's basically famous and she's super powerful. The cat and mouse chase Byakuya and Yoruichi was mildly entertaining, although they could have done without the unnecessary showing off. It also didn't hit me till now, Hanatarou has been a part of the group for a while now, it's odd not seeing him, Ichigo, and Ganju goof around anymore, although it's nice to see that they're safe.
While the little side story about how Ishida and Inoue are avoiding patrols was basically filler, it was finally good to see them after like a ten episode absence. Really I think the last time I've seen them was that fight Ishida had with that one death god. The episode ended with yet Ichigo training again, even though he just had a DEM powerup against his last opponent, which was only a couple of episodes ago. Well, it really wasn't a DEM, the story at least tried covering it up a little bit.
