In the aftermath of last episode’s epic battle, everyone’s dealing with the shock and loss. Also Kuzzey’s there. But not everything’s going poorly! New romances are blooming, Mu gets to practice being the impulsive one, and death appears to be only a minor inconvenience!
After some amazing fighter cross-classing, Kira sees the Archangel to Orb, leading to a “surprising” plot twist! Everyone’s pretty tired, even the ZAFT crew, but that’s mostly because Yzak has been dishing sick burns all day. They head off to scheme about how to get some sweet civilian jumpsuits while the Archangel crew negotiate… for their LIVES! And also asylum, I guess.
Teased endlessly by the opening, we finally get some screen time with Athrun and Cagalli interacting! Will the two angst-struck teens be able to survive an entire day alone together? Kira and the Archangel’s crew are determined to find Cagalli, despite Natarl’s strategic objections, and Yzak is getting ready for a command of his own… They grow up so fast.
In this exciting episode, we get to see the strongest weapon in the Strike’s arsenal make a return: knives! Also, the life and death of Captain McBeardo, and some shocked Athrun. More importantly, though: will Cagalli make a kill in a dogfight? There’s only one way to find out!
What’s the best sauce for doner kebab? Batarang! In this episode we get dueling condiments, philosophical rambling from Mr. Burnsides, and a submission to the System’s Funniest Home Videos! Also featured: Dress Up Cagalli! Despite not being action-y, this one’s pretty great, and contains one of the best shirts in existence.
