Thanks to Angelreii for the synopsis! Huge spoilers! Non-fans of Kao will definitely not like this.

Historical Drama "RYOMADEN"
Eps. 15
Apr 11 (Sun) 19:00-19:45

Together In Kyo
Ryoma leaves for Kyoto to see Kao. Takechi meets with Sanjo Sanetomi, a leader of the anti-foreign movement in the Imperial Court, and suggests that they together covey the emperor's edict that forbids foreign commerce to the Tokugawa shogunate in Edo. Kao spends the night with Ryoma despite being warned by her brother not to see him. Meanwhile, Izo, a member of the Tosa Loyalist Party, under Takechi's order assassinates numerous proponents of foreign trade. Ryoma, Kao, and Izo realize that they cannot remain friends as in their early years as times change and Ryoma leaves for Edo.

Taken from fans discussion for understanding of the plot. Spoilers alert.

Ryoma & Kao finally meet.they meet at the bridge. they are at the room together. Kao found him a room.and it's night already...Ryoma is facing away from her. He was staring at her & turn away.Staring at each other...intercuts with scenes of Izo kiling whilst Ryoma tearfully fell on top of Kao, Izo still killing, Kao caresses Ryoma's cheek, Izo killing and Ryoa kisses Kao. Next morning (or is it a few days later? Forumner answers "Few days later, you can see Takechi visits the geisha place few times") a battle of ideology in the morning. Ryoma & Izo met. Why is Ryoma running away. I think he did not want Izo or anyone to know he is in Edo.Izo misses Ryoma like crazy (Izo greeted Ryoma with high enthusiasm). Kao arguing with her brother, Kao crying, brother scolding. Kao ran out, and bumped into Izo and Ryoma chatting. Kao, Ryoma and Izo chatting, arguing, chatting. Ryoma having some inner conflict (Ryoma knows that Izo was the hitokiri [ASSASSIN?]?), Kao advises. Ryoma suddenly realise what Izo said is true. She told Ryoma Katsu Rintaro is in Edo. Ryoma's excited to hear Katsu's whereabouts. She is asking him to go there. Please go to Edo.Kao's not going to follow him. It seems like she bounded by her duty. Kao cries as she hugs Ryoma and Ryoma cries as he hugs her back. Ryoma apologize, Kao thanked him.

Next week looks much better. Ryoma meets the ship. The ship meets Ryoma. Ryoma meets Katsu. And John Manjiro. And learned his first English words. And Sana reappears!

By River of MashaPlus Info Forums on the reactions by others
bs-hi reaction: Not as good as last week. Like everyone else, they were groaning. Why does this thing (the love scene) happened?!! Some of the scene is awkward, yes. Most of them do not like this episode. Of course, some put Ryoma as James Bond, love 'em and leave 'em type of man. Yataro is the most interesting thing here. Takechi has moved up the ranking and Izo continues his killing.

By myself
I wonder, is this the last we see of Kao?

A point to ponder on the filming. Did Masha actually kissed the actress? From the angle, the top of his head looking down, we see only her face and the back of his head. Truth is it looks like they were, briefly before the scene cuts to next morning but from the way I see it, more like camera angle. Not quite sure if lips actually touched. Was hoping for the camera to show sideways but the caresses were sweet. Didn't like the next morning scene though, too impersonal, too business-like, no intimacy, as if what happened the night before, which is pretty staggering for an unwed girl back in those days seem insignificant. I wanted more turmoil on Kao's part, instead of just a small smile or Ryoma's nonchalant attitude. Apparently the next scene was actually a few days later! Confusing timeline! But still the passion should be there. All I can see is so many tears shed, but not one that makes me feel sad for them.

18.4%, generally. I wonder why still that number? Because those who don't like Ryoma-Kao stayed away or because of some other shows?
