Gundam 00 Season 2: Episode 20


- Sumeragi and the meisters question Revive about Veda.
- Feldt calls Sumeragi from the bridge to tell them that Anew has shot Lasse (poor Lasse) and has taken Millenia hostage, and said she's an Innovator. So they let Revive go, and Sumeragi holds Lyle back.
- Soma finds Anew and Millenia and orders her not to take a step forward. Nice. Lyle and Setsuna make it over there, and Lyle agrees to go with Anew. Setsuna takes Soma's gun and shoots Lyle in the shoulder. Lyle snags Millenia it turns out that it was part of their plan.
- Now Gundam battle time! Lyle has some flashbacks to his relationship with Anew. Would have been nice to you, know, actually have those scenes in the series!
- Anew says that she really loves Lyle.
- Ribbons tells Louise that he will have to get her new medicine.
- Oh, new Fullmetal Alchemist trailer! Looks good!
- Everyone is angsty.
- Setsuna tells Lyle that he'll kill Anew so that he doesn't have to. Thanks, Setsuna. I'm sure Lyle feels all better now!
- Sumeragi is bad at piloting the ship.
- Of course, Lyle and Anew meet on the battlefield. He tells her that he's going to "make her his woman again." Er, nice choice of words there, Lyle.
- Ribbons, of course, pings her and controls her. So Setsuna kills her.
- And Lyle and Anew have a naked Newtype sequence.
- Yeesh, that was depressing. Yuna Ito added to it. "I love you, I trust you." Even though I don't think their relationship was handled well, it's still sad.
- Epilogue: Screaming by Lyle as he beats up Setsuna.
- Preview: Damn, Wang and Hong Long are still alive.

Gundam 00 Season 2: Episode 19


- Last week's cliffhanger's resolution was kind of crappy. Klaus had a machine gun, guys. Our heroes are safe, for the moment, anyway.
- And look, a secret passageway. I'm reminded of Gundam SEED Destiny... episode 8, I think.
- Marina will not take the gun.
- Allelujah will not stop calling Soma "Marie."
- GN Particle party! Which means that Hallelujah comes for a visit!
- The peeps on the ship can hear Setsuna's voice.
- Saji and Louise have a Newtype like meeting.
- Andrei interrupts them, and then Soma finds him.
- Shirin and Marina find the end of the tunnel, and Shirin tells Marina she's a hindrance because she won't carry a gun. Um, what about the children, Shirin? You want them to carry guns too?
- Sumeragi and meisters question their captive, Revive.
- Lyle notices that he looks like Anew.
- Meanwhile, Anew pulls a gun on Lasse on the bridge. Seems that Ribbons made her do it.
- And Nena kills Wang and Hong Long by destroying their ship.
- I wonder how the Anew thing is handled. We shall see.

Gundam 00 Season 2: Episode 18

Spoilers, as always.

This episode sparked my interest in this series again, which is strange because I hate time skips. I still have a problem with this time skip, but it helped in other respects.

Four months later...
- Look, it's 00bama.
- Hmm, seems that Kati has gone missing. I'm kind of glad, because I didn't want Murrue vs. Natarle Part Two (or three, since Murrue vs. Talia could have been Murrue vs. Natarle Part Two, I guess).
- Marina plays mom with the children in a cottage in the forest.
- Klaus and Shirin are looking spiffy. And a couple. I CALLED IT. LIKE IN THE FIRST EPISODE OF SEASON TWO.
- Marina's song is on the radio. Oh oh oh, on the radio! [/Donna Summer]
- Meanwhile, SoMarie is back to being Soma, and Allelujah is sad. He blames himself for letting her fight again. He chills with Saji in the emo lounge.
- Setsuna is not going to die like poor Lasse is.
- Ribbons warns Wang that she is not an Innovator.
- Louise congrats Andrei on his promotion. Revive and Hilling make fun of him, though. I think that the only reason I don't hate him is because he has Sai Argyle's (Gundam SEED) voice. And I always felt sorry for Sai. Louise finds out that Andrei killed his father and is upset. Then Andrei hugs her. Kind of awkward there, buddy. She wonders if she will have a fight Saji.
- Lyle and Anew cuddle in bed (they are wearing clothes...) Okay, now I said that I wanted more romance in this show, but this was not the way to do it. I wanted to see the development of a romance. The time skip killed it for me. :(
- Apparently Lyle went to boarding school so that he didn't have to compete with Neil.
- He asks Anew about her family, but she doesn't want to answer. They kiss, and her eyes go all Veda. Soma gets a flash, and so does Setsuna. I think she's beaming this to her family, Lyle, so don't get too kinky.
- Setsuna helps Saji with some of his Louise problems.
- Lyle tells Anew that he loves her over the comm, so everyone of the bridge hears it and is surprise. Sumeragi's like, "what, when?!" In those stinkin' four months that they didn't show us. Grr. I haven't nothing against the pairing, but I would have liked to had seen more development.
- The thing with having everyone say the name of someone (or thing) the care for was awkward and cheesy. Because Tieria loves Veda, and Setsuna loves his Gundam.
- Epilogue: They killed Kenny! Mmm... watcha say. I hope that they didn't kill Marina (I think I'm one of the few people that don't hate her) or Klaus (Shirin needs him). Eek.
- Preview: Looks like Saji and Louise met up, not in mobile suits.

Gundam 00 Season 2: Episode 17

Spoilers like whoa.

- We find out what Sergei did that got Holly killed.
- Apparently Ribbons's secret hide out is in the Antarctic, and he created Regene. Saji gets to pilot the 0O Raiser again.
- The orbital tower is starting to fall apart!
- Everyone works together to destroy the pieces before they hit the people on Earth.
- SoMarie (I saw someone use this on LJ, and I'm going to use it as well. Too many Marie's in my fandoms) gets to pilot the GN Archer, which looks kind of like a GM.
- Sergei shows up too, and SoMarie says hi.
- But after the debris is destroyed, Andrei kills Hercules and then, his father. In front of SoMarie. He might have wanted revenge for his mother, but I think that she'll want revenge for her almost adopted father.
- Based off of the preview, it looks like there will be a short time jump of four months.
