However, the route is leaked to Coral, and the transport shuttle is ambushed by Gjallarhorn forces. Pompadour dude provides a way to address that in the way he asks Chad and Dante what they think, but I think its Hush who has also adopted their hard-line view on them being enemies before being Debris that really sum it up despite being so new at battle. Upon their return to Mars, Tekkadan discovers that they are now vilified by the media while the majority of their accounts have been frozen and their clients have stopped supporting them. As McGilis rallies his troops, Gaelio attacks him with the restored Gundam Kimaris Vidar. They aren't in any position to save people, so its kill or be killed. Jasley calls for a conditional ceasefire, but Orga refuses the deal before allowing Mikazuki to destroy the bridge of Jasley's ship, killing the latter and avenging Lafter. Vidar suspects that McGillis is out to destroy the Mobile Armor to earn the Order of the Seven Stars; the highest honor within Gjallarhorn.
Links Alien image thanks to To be fair I felt that, sure, Jasley dying was anti-climatic and all, but I mean isn't the whole point to show how pointless revenge is in general? Meanwhile, after looking at Naze's children, Mikazuki startles Atra by bluntly asking her if she'd like to have a baby with him. 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. It is directed by and written by , a team which previously collaborated on and. McGillis then confesses that the reason he betrayed Gaelio and Carta was due to their friendship with him causing his drive for power to waver, while his ambitions of reforming Gjallarhorn were because he promised Almiria a safer world. This show places such a heavy emphasis on eyes in every way, the fact we don't see Orga's is something to me that reads as how broken he is. Orga, Mika and Merribit later meet with McGillis, who requests Tekkadan's aid in gaining more power to challenge his rival, Rustall Elion, as part of his ongoing plan to reform Gjallarhorn.
When Ein blocks Orga's convoy, Kudelia leaves her vehicle to confront Ein. With time running out, Orga sorties Shino and Yamagi in the Gundam Flauros to separate the Mobile Armor from its Plumas with the Galaxy Cannon, but they fail to slow the Hashmal itself. Meanwhile, the crew of the Hotarubi arrive within the Earth orbit, but are not permitted to launch a shuttle due to Arbrau's state of emergency. Rustal instigates a maneuver using a hijacked revolutionary fleet Graze and firing a Dáinsleif toward his own fleet to justify a massive counterattack with the railguns, which leaves a majority of the revolutionaries' fleet destroyed or crippled. Meanwhile, Naze brings up McGillis' proposal of giving Tekkadan full authority of Mars to Teiwaz, which raises concerns and arguments from McMurdo and Jasley respectively. Ah, so that's her name. The revolution McGillis has long planned for begins, with our protagonists in Tekkadan backing him up.
Plus we get to witness in action for the first time which is just pure for me. 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. Maybe she wanted to see if there was something she could get for the kids. Both reminisce on and express their regret over the tragic ends of McGillis and Tekkadan, though resolve to keep moving forward. The Hashmal breaks through Tekkadan's defenses in the gorge while Julieta prevents Iok from attacking it once more, as his heavily damaged Reginlaze will only be a distraction. In the following years, Gjallarhorn repeals the Seven Stars council system after losing the Issue, Kujan and Fareed families - and ironically, Rustal's policies are a reflection of McGillis' ideals, restructuring the government as a democratic system under his leadership.
Fits his personality and ideals. Usually these sorts of shots are used to add power to the subject, the camera being our eyes as an audience and therefore for us to be looking up to something is to give it authority. The difference in environments between the two bridges is quite well portrayed seeming almost comfortable in its emptiness, the camera standing as if not apart of the scene but just there so we can see what's going on. There's no way they do this on accident. Despite crippling damage, both Gundams rise to finish off the Gjallarhorn mobile suits.
Taking over as replacement commander, Takaki has difficulty handling his fellow Human Debris comrades as they are determined to take revenge. Despite warnings from Mikazuki and Hush of the Hashmal's arrival, Kudelia and Atra refuse to evacuate. Meanwhile, Carta continues her mission to intercept Tekkadan against Iznario Fareed's orders. Takaki, Aston, and their comrades struggle as they engage in non-stop skirmishes, their wits and instincts dulling as they are forced to rely on Galan. Such brutal actions sadden Kudelia, as she hoped to build a world free of bloodshed for them but is making minimal progress. Can't wait for the next one! Not to mention that pretty much everyone could see through his scheme to take over Teiwaz.
. Before they can come to blows, Mikazuki intervenes the rebuilt Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex and battles the Gundam Vidar, but Gaelio reveals that his Gundam uses a pseudo Alaya Vijnana System based on Ein Dalton's brain. Or maybe it was something else entirely. After Tekkadan and the revolutionary forces retreat to Mars, Gaelio recovers Julieta while Orga, Eugene, and McGillis discuss their next plan of strategy. Every last inch of him was crushed. He was very dangerous one though, so I feel Tekkadan did have to do what they did. The other part of this scene is when Mika appears.
As McGillis broadcasts his speech worldwide, he is interrupted by Gaelio, who declares his intent to defeat his former comrade. The two quickly shoot each other, but Gaelio's mask protects him while McGillis is fatally shot in the chest, with Gaelio pinning the dying McGillis to a wall and demanding acknowledgment as the victor. Very few, if any, were known to the public prior to Tekkadan showing up with the demon. Later, Tekkadan celebrate their success in one of the vessel's commercial properties to relieve their stresses. Furthermore, Orga receives an email from Azee stating that the former Turbines can smuggle them through Teiwaz's Mars office. If this is the final form of Barbatos, I'm quite satisfied.
McGillis tells him to stop the excavation immediately, revealing what they discovered is an ancient Mobile Armor; a forbidden piece of technology that caused both the Calamity War and the mass casualties associated with the conflict. This is a fucking sweet machine. Contrast this with where every part of the screen is filled with a person or object and the camera is forced into being right in the center of everything, with Barbatos threatening Jasley in line with our vision, we are here as witnesses to what will come and we have a stance here. Upon his arrival on Mars, McGillis reveals to Tekkadan that Mobile Armors are fully automated, therefore making them capable of unrestrained violence, and that Mobile Suits - especially the Gundams - were created to destroy them. The remaining Human Debris from Brewers are taken by Tekkadan with assurances they will be taken care of on Mars. Meanwhile, Orga claims the Brewers' remaining mobile suits and one assault ship from Brooke Kabayan at gunpoint. Spoilers All spoilers must be tagged.
