Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood Episode 12 Spoilers
In episode 11, Sawa correctly deduces that Jin killed her entire clan on the orders of Tokugawa Yoshinobu, a man he later had her protect. Suddenly, alarms start to go off, making Jin realize that the Shogun has sent special forces to retrieve Sawa. He tells her that she will be captured if she stays and kills him, and her blood will be used to create an army. Sawa escapes through the tunnels and finds Elena alive and waiting for her. After Sawa defeats Rinko, she and Elena go to Sawa’s home, where Sawa gets another surprise: Asahi is alive as well. Elena reveals that Jin used a med-school dropout and self-proclaimed revolutionary to save Asahi.
As she is about to leave for her home, Elena goes into labor. Riots have broken out all over the city as the government forces desperately try to suppress a dissatisfied and disillusioned population. Amidst all that mayhem, Sawa and Asahi help bring a new life into the world. Later, after Elena, her newborn daughter, and Asahi have fallen asleep, Sawa heads out to meet with Jin. In the season finale, Sawa might not kill Jin yet. She has likely realized as long as Yoshinobu is alive, she and the people she cares for will be in danger. She and Jin might try to assassinate the Shogun in the next episode.
