The navy boys get to set foot on the ship.
Also known as the episode where Oryo appears
I suppose the question is why Oryo looks more mature than Ryoma in the series. Thanks to Mashamasha of HK Fans Discussion Forums for the clarification. I personally think in the series itself Oryo doesn't look too mature from Ryoma. However I find the reason a bit suspect since isn't Sana as independent? Even in the series Kao is rather independent.
people said why ryoma chose Oryo as his wife among all girls because she is tough and independent, so she won't rely on him too much and he can concentrate on his big task.....and maybe it is the reason why Oryo in the drama needs to look more mature than ryoma

From NHK Official Ryoma-Den blog
I am not sure if the following are from this episode but I will repost them if they're not.. As you shall see, the reappearance of Ryoma's "mother" except as another character, the keeper of the inn where Ryoma and Oryo met, I think. Why the same actress is I read because the innkeeper is supposed to be a maternal figure for both characters so why not have someone who was Ryoma's mom to play this affectionate character. By the way you might be interested in some funny anecdotes about this actress, Kusakari Tamiyo (who is not much older than Masha himself by the way) in my ANN & TFM Snippets post (look for the date 08.05.2010). She was also the introducer/guest at the Kouhaku 2009, the elegant lady with long black hair was what I remember.
