The idea of Ichigo as bait is quite interesting, I've always wondered what Kukaku meant when she said; "Uncle will be sad," http://www.mangareader.net/bleach/518/16
If the RG and King are as holy, helpful and good as we would like to think of them to be then there would be no reason for sorrow, is there?
It brings me back to wondering why Isshin escaped to the real world in the first place, which would most likely relate back to Masaki and it must somehow involve the RG and King as well otherwise Isshin wouldn't even bother being covert from the Gotei 13 and RG this entire time.
Plus Hikifune's promotion seems to involve a departure from one of the RG (Isshin) as well since I also feel like there isn't a death of a RG but a departure seems to make more sense instead.
Remember that even Aizen knew about Isshin and most likely Masaki as well which explained why he knew about Ichigo long before he was a shinigami and always paying close attention to him throughout that whole time as he mentioned when he was about to tell him, "You're a shinigami and a ...." Aizen most likely already knew since he was VC or even way before.
What made me wonder was when Kukaku mentioned "Next fight you'll have to join in," on the same link page above. We all assume it's against the Quincies, but I'm not too quick to jump the gun on that one, especially after Juha mentioned about your mother (Masaki) to Ichigo before he left. Most likely and hopefully they'll be on Ichigo's side, question is against who?
All this while, Kukaku has been one of the characters who are on the same level as Urahara and Yoruichi as far as knowing more things than others and her words shouldn't be taken too lightly.
Chances of Ichigo having a big mental breakdown if there are hidden truths about the RG, King and his parents (Isshin and Masaki) which will all relate to each other and if Juha is a part of it, then it might just be enough to make him go ape-shit and decide to confront either or both Isshin and Juha for the entire truth.

Is that the royal key in Isshin's left arm??
Mabye Aizen and Urahara had the same position as this blindfolded dude? http://mangastream.com/read/bleach/99869168/19

Ichigo resembling Kaien has to have some ground as well. So if he and kaien are actually cousins they could look alike *lets say they both resemble their grandfather of something like it*.
Ofc the promotion of 1 of the members of the Gotei could be linked to this as well.
Also i mentioned this long ago but the name Shiba comes from a real house in japan that existed > claimed to be descendants of the imperial bloodline of the minamotos. The house ended with the death of their leader.

But yes, there is no way Aizen and Urahara served under him at some time. It's been now mentioned that regular Shinigami aren't allowed to enter the Royal Dimension, so, it would be weird if some lowly-seated officers were allowed in.
Even if my post is not too long, at least compared to what I write usually, I decided to put it under spoiler tag.
I split it in two part, in the first I wrote about Rukia and of her comparison with Inoue regarding their body, in the second instead I wrote about the two hot spring of what I believe will happen in the next chapters:

I have to say that this was the funniest Bleach chapter we've read in a while
That hot springs scene had laughing my butt off with the way Kirinji was handling Byakuya and Renij to Rukia and Kirinji's comment about peaches.
Other that that, it's nice to know that the King's Key is actually embedded in the bodies of the Royal Guard.
However, still no sign of the last Zero Division member...
Hopefully, we'll get to see him soon.
But, the most surprising part of the chapter is the first appearance of the Soul King
He definitely looks out of this world (well, Shinigami world)
I agree with others that he does remind a little of Aizen when he was in his Hougyoku forms especially the eyes.
As for the future, I'm hoping that after Ichigo is healed, we'll get to see the other places that belong to each Zero Division member. Whether Ichigo will get to meet the Soul King or not, I don't know but anything can happen because I wasn't expecting to see the Soul King to appear so soon.
What still bugs me is...
why rukia renji and byakuya?
Ok, byakuya is noble...noble blood. Rukia is not. And renji is probably what the soul king would refer to as trash. Neither of them is a real danger to the Quincys (yet?), but Kenpachi is, but they didnt took him with them. If iam not mistaken, it was said that byakuya and kenpachi were near death, so what happens to him? Mr whirlpool-demon said to unohana that byakuya would have died otherwise, does that apply to kenpachi aswell since they were declared as near death in the same sentence?
I hope we get an explanation why these 3 were taken, but not kenpachi. Even if kenpachi isnt in danger, it still doesnt explain why these three were allowed to enter. Its not like the RG had interesst in dying shinigamis before.
