Back in the Kyoto area, Oishi Kuranosuke makes his first foray into the pleasure district, beginning his dissipation into the depths of alcoholism and womanizing. Lord Yanagisawa, the personal attendant to the shogun wants to know if this is an act to try and fool Kira’s people into a false sense of security, so he sends his top secret agents to Kyoto to act as spies! The great chess match between these adversaries keeps taking new twists and turns, while Oishi must put up with the jeers and taunts of those feeling he has shown cowardice in his handling of the matter. The decision on whether Lord Asano’s brother will be able to restore the clan has not yet been made, while the Ako men continue to champ at the bit in their impatience. Will this lead to a deadly showdown too soon to carry out the vendetta?
