Nobushige admires his uncle who is entrusted by his father but he tells him not to so. They approach Kasuga Nobutatsu who now serves Kagekatsu and keeps Kaizu Castle that is controlled by the Uesugis now.

Nobushige tries to persuade him into forming an alliance with the Hojos but it ends in failure. Then Nobutada prevails on him to do so. On the other hand, Masayuki betrays Kagekatu and serve the Hojos with other local lords of Shinano but it's one of his manuevers, needless to say. Then he asks Hojo Ujinao who leads the Hojos to write to Kasuga that he will hand over him Kaizu Castle if he betrays Kagekatsu. Both Nobutada and Nobushige apologize their master for the treachery but they know the truth behind it.

Episode 9 "Kakehiki" (Maneuvering)

This episode is described from the viewpoint of a hawk kept by Hojo Ujimasa, father of Ujinao. It flies up to the sky from Odawara Castle and heads for Echigo. There Naoe Kanetsugu suspects Nobutada though he already has left Echigo and returns Shinano at that time. And it flies to Shinano where Nobushige is shocked by the manuever of Masayuki and Nobutada but encouraged by Ideura Masasuke. In addition, he pulls himself together when Ume tells him that no battle saves farmers.

Masayuki ignores the request of Hojo Ujinao that orders him to cooperate to attack Tokugawa Ieyasu. he sends Nobutada to Shinpu Castle, the headquarters of Tokugawa Ieyasu to make him propose conditions of exchange. The hawk then flies to the castle. Nobutada requires Ieyasu to guarantee the Sanadas' fief in return for the cooperation. Honda Tadakatsu, vassal of Ieyasu opposes but Ieyasu accepts it.

Masayuki and other local lords join the Tokugawa army and Nobushige makes a suggestion that it's the best way to block the supply route of the Hojo army. This encourages Tokugawa Ieyasu and forced Hojo Ujinao to work out his strategy again. However the Tokugawas allied themselves with the Hojos immedidately after the battle and it casts a shadow on Masayuki's plan. And the hawk returns to Odawara Castle again.
