Episode 26: The Ghost of Zeon

 

Review by Chris Guanche

July 23, 2001

 

Summary

 

On the Alexandria, Yazan has his Gaplant fixed so that it no longer has a blind spot. Jamaican says the ship needs to go to Gryps for resupply, but Yazan has a plan. Jamaican agrees to let him do whatever he wants. Yazan tells a young pilot named Adol Zeno that they have to show Jamaican the horrors of fighting and use the Alexandria's battle power. Aboard the Radish, Emma tells Henken that the G-Defenser is ready for use in battle. On the Argama, Bright sees that the Dogosse Giar and the other Titans ships have different objectives. Kamille says that the Dogosse Giar isn't a normal ship because he feels immense pressure from it. Emma launches in the Mk II, and Katz takes the G-Defenser after her. Yazan attacks Emma, and Katz flies by an old Zeon Gwazineclass ship from the One Year War. Adol slams into Emma with his Hizack, and Kamille feels her cry out. He gets Bright's permission to attack with the Zeta Gundam. Yazan and Adol prevent Emma and Katz from docking to form the Super Gundam. Kamille arrives and shoots some other Hizacks, giving Emma and Katz the chance to dock. Katz flies off in the Core Fighter, while Emma uses the super beam rifle against the enemy. Katz tries to fly inside the Zeon ship, but Adol attacks him.

 

Katz attacks Adol and blows the Hizack's head off. He lands on the Zeon ship, and Adol follows. Emma then lands on the ship and follows them both in. Kamille and Yazan fight around the Zeon ship. Jamaican orders the Alexandria's guns to fire at the Radish, and Yazan is almost hit. Kamille hides to reload his rifle, and Yazan continues to attack. Emma finds Katz on the bridge of the Zeon ship, and he says he's looking for weapons. Adol comes in, and everyone hides. Katz attacks, but Adol grabs him and holds him with a knife. Emma hands over her gun, and an explosion blows Adol out into space. Kamille has run out of ammo, and he and Yazan are fighting with beam sabers inside the Zeon ship. Kamille loses his beam saber, and Katz saves him by getting into an old Gelgoog and shooting at Yazan. Kamille gets back his beam saber and slices off one of the Gaplant's arms. Yazan leads Emma and Kamille to the Alexandria and stops in front of the bridge. When Emma fires, the shot hits the bridge and kills Jamaican. Bright hears that the Zeon have joined with the Titans and given them the space fortress A Baoa Qu. Aboard the Radish, Henken tells Kamille that Char is back from Earth and the Argama has picked him up.

 

Commentary

 

Well, there's quite a few developments in this episode. The biggest is Jamaican's death. Well, that's what he gets for crossing someone as cruel as Yazan. It's about time Jamaican got it, since he's been around since the beginning of the show. Where are Bask and Jamitov? Those two seemed to have vanished totally. Katz comes pretty close to getting killed several times, but he luckily survives. There's other developments, such as the Zeon teaming up with the Titans and giving them A Baoa Qu. That fortress is nearly impenetrable, and now that the Titans have it, they can barricade themselves. We'll see what it is they do with that fortress.
