At one point we see him greedily nabbing as much leftover cannoli as he can carry. One of my favourite moments from this episode was when Azee nuggied one of the children for saying that girls are weak, but then one of the other children — whose name she even learned already! Furthermore, Orga receives an email from Azee stating that the former Turbines can smuggle them through Teiwaz's Mars office. Tekkadan returns to Mars, while Kudelia remains to advise Makanai and see her vision come to pass. Kudelia and Teiwaz form the Admoss Company to mine, process, and ship the half-metal of Arbrau colonies. Upon their arrival at Admoss Company, Orga discovers that Gjallarhorn manipulated the media to make the public think Tekkadan ignored orders to surrender. As Tekkadan's Mobile Suit squadron mows down the enemy units, Jasley contacts McMurdo to ask for help, but McMurdo reveals Jasley's plan to have him arrested by Gjallarhorn so he will take over Teiwaz. But I think or at least hope , Naze will be playing a big role, for not just Orga, but to Mika as well.
As Atra is being beaten by her interrogators, Mikazuki, Orga, and the rest of Tekkadan race to rescue them. It was incredibly special to see Tekkadan have the chance to celebrate with a true party, for what was the first time in their lives. Despite disarming his Reginlaze, Iok charges toward the Gundam Bael, but McGillis quickly downs him, prompting Gjallarhorn to launch a counterattack. She was taken aback when Kudelia gave her a gift of a necklace matching her own. That means making an alliance with Naze, taking the Orphans out to the bar and it's no coincidence that the bars are named Pub Someday and Pub Always , attempting to prove his adulthood by drinking way too much, and generally putting everything on his own shoulders.
Orga plans for his comrades to escape to Chryse through a series of Calamity War era tunnels while McGillis creates a diversion by penetrating through Gjallarhorn's front lines and Orga escorts Kudelia and Atra back to Admoss Company. It is revealed that Radice betrayed Tekkadan by leaking the security information to Galan Mossa, who is later assigned as the head of the Arbrau Defense Forces and secretly has connections to Rustall Elion. As Tekkadan dispatch the rest of the Plumas, Mikazuki stops the Hashmal from killing McGillis, Isurugi, Ride, and Julieta, risking his body to unleash the Gundam Barbatos Lupus' full potential by releasing its limiters. As a show of trust, Orga gives McMurdo his sakazuki cup to break, should Tekkadan be considered a hindrance to Teiwaz. As every Tekkadan member is a wanted criminal, Kudelia proposes to manipulate Arbrau's database to give the members new identities.
The demonstration becomes deadly when Gjallarhorn forces intervene and Kudelia finds herself involved with the Union. Later, McGillis - under his Montag pseudonym - proceeds to hire Tekkadan to eliminate the Dawn Horizon Corps while Arianrhod and Isurugi, McGillis' personal assistant, are each dispatched to Mars to hunt the pirates down as well. Furthermore, Nobliss Gordon has ceased funding Admoss Company and will only restore it if Kudelia cuts her ties with Tekkadan. Following a tip-off by Jasley, Iok leads a crackdown on the Turbines in his quest to take down Tekkadan. The end of the episode is filled with as much ceremony as the beginning. No matter where Kudelia's choice takes her, she will bear this burden on her shoulders for the rest of her life. Such brutal actions sadden Kudelia, as she hoped to build a world free of bloodshed for them but is making minimal progress.
Aboard the Saisei, Tekkadan and Teiwaz's mechanics activate the Pluma, which wreaks havoc on the hangar. During another meeting, McGillis asks Orga to further help in his quest to reform Gjallarhorn; for once he succeeds, he will bestow all of Gjallarhorn's authority on Mars to Tekkadan, making them the true rulers of the planet. Meanwhile, Orga claims the Brewers' remaining mobile suits and one assault ship from Brooke Kabayan at gunpoint. Theron Martin finds out if this slice of early 2000's cheese has aged well. With her vast knowledge and mysteriousness of her character, I look forward to learning more about Fumitan and her background, along with whatever history she may have, good or bad. They fight for 3 days, incurring heavy losses.
After being severely disciplined by Haeda for luring Gjallarhorn's forces toward the retreating First Corps during the battle, Orga proposes to his comrades in the Third Corps to rebel against their elders. Just as Tekkadan encounter the Dawn Horizon Corps' fleet, they discover that the pirate faction has outnumbered them by towing the majority of their ships unpowered behind the lead vessels. Orga ponders retreating, but his men convince him to see this battle to the end and he orders the Isaribi to charge through Arianrhod's main fleet. Mikazuki responds by himself, wiping her escorts out and seizing Carta's crippled suit, intent on avenging Biscuit. To ease tensions, Naze is forced to swear on his life that he will keep Tekkadan in check. Naze and Amida provide cover for their comrades to evacuate, but Iok orders his Dáinsleif squadron to open fire at the transport ships.
When Ein overhears on their radios that Kudelia has entered the city, Ein races there, causing a blackout due to his Ahab reactor. She could continue to fight for the rights of the people on Mars, knowing it could very well lead to war, or she could start keeping her head down. Frustrated by the loss of his direct superiors, Ein asks to join McGillis' team to pursue Tekkadan. When Ein blocks Orga's convoy, Kudelia leaves her vehicle to confront Ein. Kudelia addresses the assembly and chastises them for their treatment of people. Nevertheless, Tekkadan's precise tactics and Mobile Suit squadron mow down majority of the enemy fleet, but the Dawn Horizon Corps strike back with Mobile Suits of their own with many piloted by disposable Human Debris.
Taking over as replacement commander, Takaki has difficulty handling his fellow Human Debris comrades as they are determined to take revenge. Wracked with guilt from losing Aston and trusting Radice during the war, Takaki resigns from Tekkadan. Meanwhile, Kudelia offers to remedy the illiteracy of Mikazuki and the younger crew members by teaching them to read and write. This gives Gaelio the opportunity to launch the Gundam Kimaris, a Gundam-Frame mobile suit from his own ancestry. Atra contemplates having a baby with Mikazuki herself.
This episode includes the highest concentration of out-of-his-element Orga moments yet. She also opens an orphanage at the Sakura Farm on Mars. Akihiro's unit scrambles to defend the plant, but the Hashmal wipes out a portion of the plant with its beam cannon. Later, Eugene and Akihiro corner Radiche, demanding Galan's whereabouts. Upon receiving word that his elder brother Savarin has committed suicide for his actions that resulted in a Dort 3 massacre, Biscuit contemplates on leaving Tekkadan. This frequently forgotten fanservice action series is back on blu-ray! The remaining Human Debris from Brewers are taken by Tekkadan with assurances they will be taken care of on Mars.
I know that for a fact since I was really looking forward to seeing one of the new Gundams! It is because of this McMurdo has assigned experienced engineers to take care of Barbados and they are most enthusiastic about the opportunity. Orga Itsuka, leader of the boys' squad, takes this abandonment by the adults as motivation to launch a full-fledged coup d'état. McGillis prepares to board the Gundam Bael - the first Gundam ever built, rumored to contain the soul of Gjallarhorn founder Agnika Kaieru - but he is suddenly confronted by Vidar, who unmasks himself as Gaelio Bauduin. Meanwhile, after looking at Naze's children, Mikazuki startles Atra by bluntly asking her if she'd like to have a baby with him. I'm not sure exactly what's going to happen next, but I'm certain that after it happens I'll be able to point back to this episode as the pivotal point of instigation. Meanwhile, McGillis battles Gaelio, but his left hand gives in from his stab wound and Isurugi sacrifices himself to block Gaelio's drill knee attack. Conflicted, Gaelio breaks down as McGillis succumbs to his wounds, bidding his deceased friend farewell.
