Happily ever after with Mitsuhide! A perfect ending. (I wish.)
In a stunning turn of events, it turns out that Saru is alive! Who could have possibly predicted that?!! Who would have guessed that the ninja used a substitution technique and the onmyouji provided the corpse?!
So this episode surprised no one, but I’m okay with that. Sometimes a happy and predictable ending is good too. Otherwise how could other shows be unpredictable? At least most of the loose ends were tied up nicely. Aside for the obvious sequel ploy, of course.
This villain was just hilariously bad though. Come on.
And I seem to have missed the memo that everyone is required to expose their chest.
