Lesson 548 is the 548th chapter of the Gintama series.
While Hijikata and Oboro got engaged in a fight, Kondo recovered and stood up behind the latter. Together, two Shinsengumi officers gave a blow to Oboro, thus slashing off his right arm and finishing him off.
Turning to the Shinsengumi, Kondou cheekily claimed that he would not leave anyone behind even if he had to go to hell. The police then escorted him back to the ship. While so, Sasaki remarked that he was satisfied to be the one to defeat Kondou, even only for a short time.
However, before they could escape, Utsuro's ship opened fire at everyone. As a consequence, Sasaki was knocked out as a injured Nobume reached out for him, telling him not to die and reminding Sasaki of their promise that she would be the one to kill him.
