HIjikata tells sanan to stop making rasetsu because everytime they use their powers it takes away from their life force.
Chizuru tells HIjikata to stop using his powers, he gets ticked and tells her why should he listen to her //because she loves you, there I answered for her//
awww he patted her head and asked for more tea, but his demon side is coming out just as chizuru was about to prick her finger, he got a hold of her and made her leave the room closing the door behind her. remembering the medicine heisuke gave him, he took it.
Saito is with the new recruits and Chizuru is bringing tea to kondou. suddenly hijikata storms inside with a few soldiers and tell him that they are surrounded so prepare to leave.
Kondou says he will go to the enemies camp, hijikata refuses and says he will fight against them to buy them some time but Kondou refuses to let him do that. Then orders him to take the soldiers and retreat to join the ichikawa army.
HIjikata and shimada leave to tell the other soldiers to go to the escape route, Kondou gives money to chizuru to escape and he will explain to hijikata but she refuses and says she will leave with him. He then tells her to take care of hijikata, she knows what he means by those words
they escape and kondou stays behind, though they are spotted hijikata prepares to attack the enemy. He starts killing them and by the time chizuru makes her way up it’s already over. He tells her to leave but she refuses and wants to stay by his side //omg I hear the ED song playing, no no no this means something bad happened or is about to happen//
HIjikata starts talking and the scene moves to kondou who is surrendering to the enemy, flash backs appear. HIjikata is wondering why was he spared when he left Kondou behind with the enemies. He abandonded a friend he shouldnt have and been the one to die and Kondou should have lived.
Chizuru leans onto hijikatas back and tells him like he did not want kondou to die, kondou did not want hijikata to die and to live on.
Kondou is at the enemies place and he looks to the sky knowing that his time is up.
