Speaking of this leader, where is he anyway? As it turns out, he escaped the mind control thing and is now hiding in a cave with his grandson! This is when we learned what happened to the village and how they were able to escape the mind control. The flashback scene in this episode is quite interesting, aside from the traditional "x must snap out of it" scene, I notice that the mystical gibberish is still on the background and that the village leader was able to escape from it thanks to his hearing aid not attached in his ear!
The events that happened the next day sums up the tone of the entire episode; to put it simply, Kotaro is stuck in a village filled with people who has the capacity to kill him with no mercy. What's more, they are not aware of it, making this scenario scarier! I mean, the villagers hit them with burning spears, pitch forks and torches for crying out loud! Because of the situation of the village, Kotaro fights as Kamen Rider BLACK to finally end this.
