I'm kind of annoyed that Jack is all gung-ho and ready to fight Aku again. It doesn't really feel like anything has changed.
When he lost the sword, he felt guilty over killing those innocent creatures and went into a rage because of the time portals all being destroyed. But they're still dead because of his anger. All of the time portals are still gone (aside from the Guardian's, more than likely).
I mean it's great that Ashi told Jack that he's inspired so many people, but he's still in the same position he was in when Aku first destroyed the portals.
Why does he feel so much more confident about getting rid of Aku now and why did it take so long for him to try reclaiming the sword in the first place?
I don't know. I just felt like the way they built up his issues, they would stick out longer. Like, there would still be nagging doubts that would trouble him. But last episode made it seem like he's done with hallucination Jack (and his parents, who haven't appeared since Episode 1) and Suicide Samurai is also gone.
