THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Someone got sister w. no memory after the fire and she grew up in a secret place for hanyou orphans. That Shiori lady looks like the soulless monster from last season, though.
Then suddenly there's gift to her and she starts training. They also took care of youkais that came as far as the seal together. She grew up and went out to train. Then she went back.
A youkai came attacking when that Shiori lady losing youkai power because she is also a youkai. They lost to that youkai and she changed in order to protect others. Monk guy was also there and stopped her from berserking and gave her power seal along w. the weapon, which was originally the youkai's.
She had no chance to go out again.
The pearl's story next (happening main girl losing her youkai power).
I ♥ Two Syaorans from Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE and TRC!!!

I liked how they connected the past and present and explained a lot about what happened to Setsuna after the incident.
As we expected, it was indeed Jaken who saved her and she got raised by Shiori with other half children. Guess it was Miroku who was sending Setsuna all those messages, which means that after leaving Setsuna with Shiori, Jaken went to the village to inform the others about what happened.
This time it didn't felt like it could be longer so the pacing was nice imo. After that awful last episode, this one feels like one of the best we had for this show, with some references from the Inuyasha series.
Next week we will know more about the Pearl and maybe a bit more about Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha's father.

Learning more context to Setsuna past. So she didn't quite have a horrible growing up in the forest like we thought before. Setsuna living in that half demon village with Shiori whom is from the original Inuyasha series. We'd thought before that Setsuna was left all on her own in the forest by Sesshomaru but she wasn't. I can imagine those gifts and instructions she received were from him. Trying to get her strong so she could protect the village and herself. Setsuna even at a young age was a miniature badass. Helping defeat dumb demons who came knocking to their village, especially ones who cams during when Shiori would lose her powers once a month. Setsuna wasn't cut out for the human world until she was ready like we saw when she went to Kaede village for a short time. But luckily later on she could join the demon hunters and help them.

With 4 more episodes left for the show to play with, do you think they'll try wrap up all the story threads or leave them hanging to be brought over into another season?
Since the anime seems to have nice viewership ratings in Japan, they are probably saving the most important stuff to another season at this point. Next episodes will only set everything up for that.
Unless they decide they will rush everything down because why not, which I don't think is gonna happen.

That really felt random it would have been better that Yaken took Setsuna to Kohaku someone with combat experience so he had trained her, also that would have explained why she is with the demon hunters and Miroku sudden apperance wouldnt felt so random since Kohaku is his brother in law.
Besides if the demon hunters were the ones rising Setsuna they could have added scenes between Hisui and Setsuna to promote the shipping but no as always another dissappointment.
PS: I hope it doesnt happen but I can already see the complains on this episode because Shiori when she transformed in her human form her skin became white.

Let's try to give some character development at the very end of the series, why do it at the beginning? Also, Setsuna doesn't have memories, oh wat, she does, but only some.
Ugh... The writing in this is appalling, the firs 1 I will give to a series.

Interesting how we get what are possibly the show's worst and best episodes back to back. My only complaint about this episode is that I think it should have been placed earlier in the season, probably after the Miroku episode. Wouldn't have changed anything plot wise.
On a side note, I like how we actually got a brutal looking death in this episode, this series was desperately missing them
