Yaichi's past has certainly been a subject of interest from almost the start of the series as he took to someone like Masanosuke so easily. With his business being all about kidnappings, ones that often have led to having the victim escape on his own with some funds to get as far away as possible, he hasn't been a traditionalist in the area, so to speak. His reasons for doing so were never clear and while it confused others in the group, they made their money regardless so they went along with it. But now something feels very different and they're starting to fall away from participating in the group anymore.
And that happens at the same time that Masanosuke starts to understand more of Yaichi's past through Yagi. And it's Yagi that pretty much openly confronts Yaichi about his past and how he acquired his name over a simple series of drinks together one night. As Yagi slowly lays everything out and the small things that Yaichi thought would be eternally quiet are revealed, the tension rises in his face and how he carries himself as he's certain nothing good will come of this. The most telling of moments comes when Yagi simply calls him by his shortened first real name and Yaichi seems resigned to the fact that someone has figured it all out.
