Taken from fans discussion at discussion forums for understanding of the plot for this episode. Spoilers alert!
As for the upcoming episode 19, well, Ryoma will cry. Cry. Ugly cry. Really ugly cry. So be prepared. And it also the beginning of the Fall of Takechi Hanpeita.So finally Takechi found out Shoujiro betrayed him. Ryoma has the knack of destroying a place. Ryoma was waiting for Takechi to appear. Takechi is beyond help. There is nothing anyone can do to stop him from spiralling down out of control. Even Katsu Rintaro feels Bakufu is an idiot. The Chosu fires against the foreign ships. Ryoma in heart to heart speech. The tears for Takechi feels too real. Somehow, Takechi knows his end is nearing still he wants to return to Tosa. When Takechi was touching Ryoma's shoulder and he was saying daijoubu ("It's ok"/"That's fine")... suddenly I remembered their happier times. So sad!
Next week, Shojiro is captured. And probably Izo too. And it was during this time that Yodo confirmed it was Takechi that is the mastermind behind Yodo's assassinations. Yataro's back!!.... So is Kao
SOME PLOT POINTS EXPLAINED
By Mashamasha of HK Fans Discussion Forums concerning the scene between Ryoma and Takechi
takechi wanted to go back to Tosa to save kao's brother (he was caught by Yodo), ryoma stopped him and said he would be caught too. Takechi did not believe it, and said Yodo would listen to him
Then Ryoma told him that everything was planned by Yodo because Yodo disliked Takechi and wanted to destroy him, Takechi still did not believe it and asked ryoma why Yodo disliked him. Then Ryoma told him it's because Yodo knows Takechi ordered to kill Toyo, and Yodo hated Takechi and his tosa group because it is formed by a group lower class<<<
