Lord Toranaga in a voice over reveals the warlord's inner thoughts: It was he who ordered the Erasmus (Blackthornes ship) destroyed by fire, in order to keep him safe from his Portuguese enemies who feared his actions with his ship; Blackthorne still has much to teach Toranaga. He also discloses Mariko's secret but vital role in the grand deception of his enemies, and, as a result, how she was destined to die gloriously in Osaka Castle. The warlord knows that Blackthorne's karma brought him to Japan and that the Englishman is destined never to leave. Toranaga also knows it is his karma to become Shōgun. What a series and book! Great stuff. Aired over 5 nights. The only American show filmed on location entirely in Japan.
