But the hottie Matsuda Shota also plays the two-face Go-Shirakawa; that doesn’t mean that Shota is evil! I do have to add that – if the real Go-Shirakawa was half as charming as Shota – with such a handsome face, I can understand how Go-Shirakawa always won the heart of powerful men and women in his era.

I consulted this Japanese site for what happened in ep 37, and this is what they said:
Ippō, Izude wa aikawarazu Minamoto no Yoritomo (Okada Masaki) ga mui no hibi o okutte ita. Tō kurō (Tsukamoto Takashi) ga yatto no koto de Hōjō Tokimasa (Endō Ken'ichi) no yakata no utage ni tsuredasu mono no, sake no sekide wa heike ga ōkō suru wadai kara Heike hihan, hiite wa Genji no shittsui o maneita Minamoto no Yoshitomo (Tamaki Hiroshi) no hinan ga okoru. Sore made oshidamatte ita Yoritomo wa, hisshi no omoi de genji wa horobinaito mune ni nemuru omoi o furishibotta.
Below is my careful translation of the info. I have reconstructed the paragraph word by word based on Google Translation, but I don't follow GTrans' illogical syntax. In the (highly) likelihood that I made a mistake, I hope any Japanese speakers will correct me. Onegaishimasu!
Meanwhile in Izu, Minamoto no Yoritomo (Okada Masaki) is still spending days in idleness as usual. With difficulty, To Kuro (Tsukamoto Takashi) took him to Hojo Tokimasa’s mansion for a banquet. Over drinks, they started to criticise the Heike in full swing. They started to blame the Heike for the fall of Minamoto no Yoshitomo (Tamaki Hiroshi). In desperation, Yoritomo – who had kept silent so far – started expressing what had been kept in his heart, that the Genji shall not perish.
