I'll post what I thought about the chapter at Wannabe over here:
I'm not sure yet, but Harima may have lost interest in Tenma during his pause after she asks him why he tried so hard to eat the curry. The way he lies to her about eating curry simply because he likes it is different from the way he normally does; most of the time, his thoughts are clearly shown to be different than what he says and his face is also shown so we can see he's sweating bullets, worrying about Tenma discovering the truth (read the earlier portion of this chapter and the last one to see how he normally deceives her). Yet, on page eight, both his true thoughts and his face are hidden. Why are they hidden? Is Kobayashi trying to hide a change in Harima?
He's sighing in relief on the last page because Tenma believed his lie, but why is he glad she bought it? Could it be because he doesn't want her to know he loves her now that he's lost interest in her? If it isn't, he just missed his best opportunity to confess to her. If confessing to Tenma has been his goal since day one, why is he "so happy, so happy" he just wussed out?
I would think Harima will be the one to face the consequences. If it's Tenma, the story will become serious while it can remain humorous if Harima is punished. I think Nakamura will try seducing Harima, as Eri and completely unaware of how obvious it is that he's not Eri, to try and lure Harima off guard (while actually putting Harima on guard) for something.

If you go way back to one of the earlier chapters, you'll see Karasuma loves insanely spicy food so it's no wonder he'd buy crazy hot curry.
