Naraku reclaims his heart in what was a slightly more enjoyable episode than normal for Final Act. To do so, he first absorbs a demonic tree that is able to penetrate demonic barriers. Despite the efforts of Koga and Inu Yasha, who actually work together rather than squabble the entire fight, Naraku manages to dupe Moryomaru into absorbing him, allowing Naraku to conquer the nearly invulnerable Moryomaru and the heart bearing infant from within.
What is puzzling is Naraku's explanation of why he let his heart be carried by the infant despite knowing the infant would try to betray him.
