The suspect is transported with multiple guards to be questioned by the Shinsengumi.
Yamazaki is thrown in alone. Despite Yamazaki yelling at him the suspect doesn’t budge. Yamazaki breaks down and talks about how pathetic he is. He then leaves after the suspect gives him some advice.
Next up is Kondo, who at first attempts to bribe him with food and explains his circumstances and how one of his relatives ended up got into some trouble, to convince him to talk to lighten his sentence. He leaves after the suspect vomits over him since the food was bad and offers to support him.
Sougo and Hijikata’s turn now they use the good cop bad cop method. Sougo attacks him, and Hijikata saves him. They then get blown back and then they all decide to attack him at once. The suspect wasn’t the murderer and was arrested for something else.
Looks like another two part episode with one half with Katsura and the other with Sadaharu.
