Nearly every minute of episode 22, "Naraku: Trap of Darkness," is packed with action, emotion, and story. To say anymore would trigger a spoiler alert, so watch the episode now.
On a more thematic level, this episode is one of several that seem to play with the question of what makes a person (or demon) strong: weapons, breeding, or heart. Already in Inuyasha The Final Act, the issue of weaponry gets complicated; weapons are closely tied to the characters wielding them. The beginning of the episode shows Inuyasha painfully wrestling with the drawbacks of being half-human. But in this episode, we also see the heart prevail. Of course, we'll need to see more of it if the gang is to survive being inside Naraku. Till next week…
