After a brief moment of levity where InuYasha destroys part of Kagome's house, we end up with a boatload of people who are knocked unconscious, thanks to yet another one of Naraku's incarnations. Miroku, Rin & Kohaku (to a certain extent) are all knocked out, with Kohaku's unconsciousness mixed with moments of "puppetry" where Naraku's incarnations control him.
The best scene in the episode is Sango caring for Miroku, and for only the second time in The Final Act, we get a romantic scene between the two. Unfortunately, we can't seem to get a scene where both of them are talking to each other; every time there's romance between them, it's always one-sided (remember Sango and the jars of alcohol?).
Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into this episode. In fact, I was so bored by it that I fell asleep the first time I watched it, and had to slog through it again in order to write this review. Maybe it's just that the whole "Kohaku controlled by Naraku" storyline is so old and tired by now that I don't feel anything over it.
Character of the episode: Sango
It's about time Sango gets a moment in the spotlight.
