Don't worry, be happy.
Great chapter in terms of plot development instead of just action. Her new protector is old, and not unwilling to die for a cause... He is obviously testing her to gauge what it takes to motivate her. Do I also see that he also doesn't like the current shogun very much? An old friends make their appearance in the crowd as well as enemies. I'll bet that she'll be tempted to run away from her assailants, to lead them away from him.
