That rule looks like:

    @12 block in quick proto tcp from any to any

which seems awfully generic.  Without much of an understanding of how 
the rules are supposed to work together, I'd have to guess that the 
packets aren't supposed to get that far down the list of rules.

Until I learn more about how these rules work, I think I'll have to 
assume that the NAT isn't recognizing return traffic that comes through 
a bridged interface which isn't included in the NAT state.
