Really good episode. Although that Titan guy is an ass, his behaviour was still realistic given the situation.

Hayato! I hope the whole White Base crew all get back together before the end.

Yea Hayato appearance at the end, awesome!! Great Episode, Camiille found Kai and Reccoa, and those idiots just let themselves get blasted by the nuke. I can't wait for them to realize it's Char, and when the whole crew is reassembled...Where's Fraw Bow? Urahara Out!!

What an episode, the best yet in my opinion. White Base crew is finally showing up!

nuclear bombs, not good at all; and like the titans care about treaties or anything of the kind

Jerid will never die. I wonder who that woman who saved him was.
Woo, more WB crew. Wonder what Kai has to say to Char.

Tense moment at the end, when Char jumped. I was worried since his new mentor role doesn't have a very good life expectancy.

Oh, it's Hayato! Is all of White Base going to assemble under Char? This is amusing indeed!

This episode was great.
Kinda disturbing that a lot of titans were left to die in the explosion like that. This seems to be getting darker than most Gundam's.

Definitely the best episode so far. Something tells me Kai and Hayato will unmask Char very soon. - Gaming reviews, articles, anime and figures.

Amazing episode!! ^^

I love Gundam Mk II surfing as Kamille destroys those fools!

Jerid is an asshole for using his allies as a shield.

I'm glad Kamille was able to rescue Reccoa and Kai Shiden!!

Who was the girl that helped Jerid get on the plane!?!

I'm liking the teamwork Kamille and Char is showing us!! Kamille is learning the ropes and helping Char along the way!!!

Glad Char didn't fell down!!

Looks like everyone from the White Base is returning!!! I want to see Sayla and Amuro as well!!!

I fucking love Zeta Gundam!!! Glad Tomino and his team were able to make this sequel!!!

It really does seem like most of the White Base Crew will end up with the Argama, given the appearance of Hayato. I'm sure Fraw and the kids will show up soon too.

It's interesting to have them working together with Char. Amuro's the only one I'm sure will realize (well, unless Sayla actually does pop up), but I wonder if any of the others will figure out that it's him.

At first I thought it was ironic that the Federation has ended up using nuclear weapons, but then a thought occurred to me: What if the Federation actually plans on pinning this nuclear bombing on the AEUG? It would sway public opinion away from the AEUG at a comparatively minimal loss to Federation, and such an underhanded tactic certainly seems plausible for the Titans.

You don't just destroy a base like Jaburo for nothing. A gamble on tricking the AEUG forces seems too risky.

"So this is what Earth's gravity feels like," he said while in freefall.

"That person is lieutenant Quatro? Hmm..." Kai is just really awesome in this one. I really can't wait for him to meet up with Bright. It's really fun to watch the original cast slowly getting back together. I'm curious how adult Kai and Bright would be together...

Lastly, I have to say I really love seeing nuclear weaponry being used in this show. It was neat how it was lampshaded in the original series that nuclear weapons were out of the picture due to environmental concerns, but I am particularly happy that they are becoming a factor in this one.

I liked but didn't love this one. The bad guys are so much less interesting than in 079, so much less moral ambiguity overall in the show and the stakes in general feel lower as well.

Still some good action and I liked the terrifying fleeing from th nuclear bomb blasts. Also, it's cool Hayato is back, but hope they do something more with the 079 characters, mostly so far they're acting as props for newer less interesting characters such as Kamille to stand in front of.

As soon as they reached the first buildings, the trap was obvious.
Nuclear explosion in the Amazon region? Nice way to protect the Earth. And how do you fly away so near from the explosion with NO problem?
I already felt bad for the fauna and the flora during the battle.

I liked how Jerid was helping those simple EFF soldiers, almost started to like him... until he showed his egoism again to board in.

Hayato helps the ÆUG too after all those years working as a soldier! We will probably get to see Mrs Fraw Kobayashi and the children they adopted (Kika und co.). Those veterans sure don't like the Federation behavior. (again, pure fan-service, but I love it)

New mysterious character! 2 in less than 50minutes.

That's my main concern with the lack of political intrigues.

Without spoiling much, I will say the show gets better in terms of depth. But the depth it offers I more character depth than the political intrigue type. By the end I really liked Kamille and was impressed with this in an equal yet different way than 079

I got super hype when Hayato showed up driving a Valkyrie at the end! I built a model kit of one once, never thought I'd see one in anime. Well, Macross maybe. It was obsolete by the mid-1960's. (No spoilers in this particular article, but as always avoiding wikis while watching is best protocol)

Compelling, increasingly growing in the story. Narrative than by way of take a breath, all the time made available, is a succession of events, within yet another armed clash, fabulous! Drawings and animations, better than usual, perfect OST in any context shown.
Ayato came back, good!

Jarid is as ruthless as ever. I thought he might grow a bit when he helped those guys flip that truck, but abandoned them as soon as it was convenient. Its hard to blame him though, considering selfish attitude is what allowed him to make it onto the shuttle.

Kamille came out of nowhere in this episode. I believe he just set the record for the most mobile suit kills in an episode. This is impressive considering he only made ace the last episode.

Kamille Bidan Kill Count:
7 Hizack kills, 3 GM kills, and 1 Marasai Kill
11 Kills this episode
16 Kills total

Jaburo Noooooooooooo!

One thing I find mindboggling is seeing a veteran pilot like Char Quattro leaving his mobile suit to talk in the open in the middle of an attack/invasion/occupation/assault (unprotected) still target for a sniper… *Facepalm*

On a side note:
If the show is trying to make this brat more likable by him making a remark about how soldiers should not have been followed their orders every damn time he makes a kill instead of doing his damn job and then after that having an inner monologue about how the Titans organization is so corrupt that they are using good soldiers for their unjustified cause I would have been more open to like him as an MC but so far he is Meh to me…

Hey,he showed the intention to help,what he did afterwards was pretty understandable considering the circumstances :P

It keeps getting better so far. I forgot who Hayato was at first until Quattro mentioned him with Kai. From the previews it looks like Amuro will show up again.
