Not that we don't all know this about me as an abstract intellectual fact, but I mention it because I was just re-watching "Cherry Blossoms" and feeling the delight of one smart scene after another, in the freedom of that canonical moment. Sure, yes, the episode has its costuming, continuity and script fumbles; it's not perfect. But it's really, really, really good. Like first season as a whole.
The second and third seasons present problems to be solved; they need us! The first season is just about just right exactly as it is.
