I re-watched both 37 and 38, and to me, that was a sudden jump in the switch to whom the actual villain was. There was no rhyme or reason then for the assistant to make off with the sauce in a bottle. I can't think of a good reason how does running off with a small amount of the chef's secret would stop him from succumbing to 090. Even the very quick scene of Rinna and Honganji didn't explain it.Yaiba wrote:He wasn't surprised when he saw 090 last episode though, so he must have known the truth beforehand.
Oh and another thumbs up to Krim in person.
