Kore ga Watashi no Goshujin-sama (TV) - 12: He Is My Master!!

Title:Kore ga Watashi no Goshujin-sama (TV)
Episode:12: He Is My Master!!
The word is that Yoshitaka has somehow managed to go bankrupt, and his estate has been purchased by lifelong enemy Sugita Takami. However, Sugita proposes a contest--if she loses she'll return the mansion, but if she wins she gets Mitsuki(?)! Izumi doesn't want to gamble with her sister, though Mitsuki urges her to accept the challenge. It is learned that Yoshitaka has been injured when he tumbled down a staircase. The girls visit him, and he reveals that Sugita plotted behind his back to cheat him out of his fortune and household. Yoshitaka seems to have had a change of heart, and regrets exploiting people. He expects no help from the girls, but Izumi is pissed at him for giving up so easily--and at herself for "running away" from problems. She resolves to accept Sugita's challenge. On the fateful day, Sugita reveals that she wants Mitsuki because she is worth as much as the mansion, and then some (!). Mitsuki proposes that the contest consist of searching through a large pile of Yoshitaka's discarded safes to find the item which is most important to him. Sugita agrees, since she gets a kick out of this invasion of Yoshitaka's privacy. She presumes the largest safe will be the one they are after, whereas Izumi notices a strange aura eminating from a relatively small one...
...I don't exactly get it. I think this was supposed to be a more funny than touching ending, but I'm left more confused than amused. Is Yoshitaka an a--hole who only pretended to have changed? Is Izumi pleased or dismayed with the way things worked out? Which events were planned in advance and which were coincidences (surely Yoshitaka didn't tumble down the stairs without any witnesses on hand intentionally)? I realise the makers of this show expect the viewers to possess at least a little intelligence, but a really well done conclusion wouldn't be so ambiguous. At least I'm not the only one who thinks Pochi looks like a hippo!
