THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
This is a discussion topic about the actual episode 10 which aired on 24 December 2011. Some fansubbers have chosen to label it as episode 11 because of a recap that aired on 17 December 2011 but the official website assigned it an episode number of 9.5 and not 10.
If you watched the recap, you can post about it here.
Please report any posts pertaining to episode 9.5 and they will be removed.

The CM for Vol.1 was so hilarious! lol~
So the guy with beard guy came to make affiliation Milia.
A girl, Alvis (Hanazawa Kana?), is here.
When someone with power is dead, the power would move to someone near. Millia doesn't have the power, so the sister is alive?! When they were talking about her, she is here! But she made affiliation with the enemy!! Since Millia doesn't accept it, they are enemies now.
Dio's first season "friend" is also the enemy?? Dio vs. him.

Alvis makes her appearance =O
I'm starting to think that Claus and Lavie are going to show up too
Same here, I've been thinking it's more possible ever since Alvis' surprise reveal in the OP (and how they kept it a secret as the day ep 1 aired was when they also added her to the official site for the first time as a surprise) but now that she's really here and how Dio's the first to interact with her, as expected, I'm thinking it more too. :)
Can't wait till the subs to re-watch this, this ep was loaded with interesting events/developments and exciting battles :)
Alvis finally returns, hell yes :)
Plus the first real Guilder action (big reminder how tough and dangerous these guys are compared to regular humans effortlessly taking out several of the Silvius' defenders, blood this time too when the other guy finds some of the bodies) putting the Silvius in big trouble and even more great stuff for Dio throughout plus him in an awesome Jedi-like duel (loved how it was animated too!) and the freaking Urbanus is back which is great and a pleasant surprise, didn't fully expect to see one of those ships again figured Vincent would need something else (his bridge with the giant clocks and that color scheme is still badass). Vincent protecting Alvis and in command on his bridge on the screen again, so cool. Glacies still keeping an eye on things watching Fam's precarious situation.
Man, another epic cliffhanger! :) And on multiple fronts this time too with the Silvius, Fam and the Sky Pirates in trouble.
And with some of the big reveals/twists and returns of characters and the big first moves of the next phase we've finally got the return of the ep previews in a big way, looks like in addition to the cliffhanger we've got potentially some important reveals of the past with Farahnaz finally making an appearance and especially young Luscinia (and a younger Alauda next to him?) shown there as we saw him in Liliana's flashback way back (And a slightly younger Sadri too in there I believe). Newer model of the steam powered rifles in the slightly cut-off shot? heh. Cute pigtailed Fam shown again as well.
Also it was a little thing but I thought it was freaking cool how Dio's Guild-suit (and Alauda's) visually re-configured for better movement, Guild stuff is always so neat.
Epic cliffhangers. Looks like the next ep is going to be big too.

This episode was a very frustrating watch indeed. What with Liliana selling out Turan to the Federation, the Sky Pirates hideout being bombarded by the Federations new long range cannons, Silvius being sabotaged by those god moded Guild people, and Fam and co being chased by those fighters with a leaking fuel tank, things went from bad to terrible in just a matter of minutes. Fam spouting out stupid ideas like kidnapping Queen Liliana away did not help matters at all.
How the heck was those things "frustrating" in a bad way like your post implies or did you mean frustrating in a good way in which frustrating isn't the right word and you mean "tough" in a good way to watch since the enemy got some victories?
That was exciting and had some really strong twists.
I could understand frustrating as in "damn cliffhanger now! Nooo!" sense but everything you list as being "frustrating" about the episode are enemy partial victories and calling those events frustrating just because the enemies made some smart moves (and got Liliana to join them) and Guilders outclassed humans in ground combat like they are supposed to and got some big moments turning the tables on the heroes for the moment isn't "frustrating"...c'mon...
And we know Guild people completely outclass regular humans in combat, we've seen what they can do before and we've seen what Dio can do and we saw the battle ceremony at the end of the first series.
And Fam was just voicing what everyone was thinking, until Millia told her that it was not the case, that Liliana must be under their control or being forced, and despite what Fam said earlier when they finally got to their vanship their mission was to get Millia off the ship and protect her.
Deathfanta, I don't know about that I'm certainly not convinced that someone of Claus or Lavie's prominence would die off screen until it's fact, if it even is one of them which I'm not so sure as there are several other people that are close to Al and Dio's pretty close to Claus yet Dio said Al lost someone, I think them being missing or taken is more likely if it even is one of them.

This show is so lighthearted, yet it's getting so dark. It's actually turning out to be really enjoyable now. It feels nostalgic watching for some reason.
Yeah I hope they keep this up, they've developed the mood really nicely over the course of the 10 eps shifting moods several times throughout and the last 3-4 eps starting especially ever since ep 7 have now been once again building upon the more serious side hinted at particularly in the also awesome episodes 1-3 (and pretty heavy dark/touching 2-3) and delivered a ton of excitement and danger and been very memorable and enjoyable, we've still even got an ep or 2 to go before the first half is over I think (depending upon how 9.5 counts) and the first half so far given how addicted I've felt as it's come to it's recent climaxes flowing through 7,8, and 10 (and 9's brief respite) has proven IMO that they've got all the pieces needed to be really set up with the potential to do something really memorable once again in the second half just like in the first Last Exile, so I think they've done a really good job on the first phase.

I guess its now time to ally with Glacies who are clearly better than Turan's own paltry fleet. Also Alvis remarking about the similarity is imo a reference to the last season's events.
Don't particularly care about how they magically got the Turan soldiers to appear out of nowhere and staff the stolen ships as well as the abrupt takeover.

So all of Turan is just going to follow the orders of the princess who has been a captive of the federation for months to kill the princess under whose banner they have been gathering for the purpose of fighting the federation? That doesn't make any damn sense, if they didn't want to fight why where they even there; Turan had already been annexed.
