Description As Hangan's loyal retainers plot their revenge inside the teahouse, Heiemon catches one of Moronao's spies listening under the veranda. Heiemon is easily identified as one of the forty-seven "ronin" or masterless samurai by the white circular crest on his shoulder. It looks like two commas.
