Episode 27: Rendezvous with Char

 

Review by Chris Guanche

August 1, 2001

 

Summary

 

On the Argama, Kamille gets into an argument with Fa about her being a pilot. He asks Apolly why he always has arguments with her, and Apolly tells him not to worry. He also says that Char is coming back into space. Bright has a video conference with Henken about the plan to retrieve Char's shuttle. The Alexandria and a fleet from A Baoa Qu (now renamed the Gate of Zedan) are heading for Earth orbit. On the Alexandria, Captain Gady Kinsey is now in command of the ship following Jamaican's death. Jerid and Mouar head down to the hangar when Yazan gets in his Gaplant and starts to trash a Hizack. He says he doesn't want to fight with an old mobile suit and a puppet doll like Sarah. Jerid says if Yazan can defeat Zeta Gundam, he'll follow his orders. Mouar tells Jerid she accepted a position on the Alexandria so that she could be with him. He takes her aside and kisses her. She asks to use the Hizack and the Mega Launcher, and he agrees. The Argama approaches Earth, and Yazan launches prematurely with his Gaplant and a Marasai team. On Earth, Char gets onto a shuttle with a boy and girl named Shinta and Qum. Hayato asks him to deliver a letter from Mirai to Bright. He also says that Char must lead the AEUG now that Blex is dead.

 

Emma launches in the Mk II with several Nemos as support, and she attacks Yazan and his Marasais. The pilots of the shuttle want to head for Sweetwater, but Char asks them to let him take a space boat and head for the Argama. Kamille, Fa, and Apolly all launch and head for Earth orbit to protect the shuttle. From the Alexandria, Jerid, Mouar and Sarah launch with the large Mega Launcher. He tells them that when he has Kamille in the right spot, he'll fire two signal flares so that they know to fire the cannon. Yazan and Emma continue to fight, and he has the upper hand until he is called away to help Jerid. Katz waits in the G-Defenser and senses something strange from where Mouar and Sarah are. As Jerid and Kamille fight, Yazan joins the battle, and Jerid fires the signal flare. Katz joins with Emma to form the Super Gundam so they can warn Kamille. When Sarah is about to fire, Kamille has a Newtype reaction and is able to dodge in time. The blast destroys the shuttle, but Char arrives safely. Gady orders everyone to return, and the battle ends. Kamille tells Fa they both have to grow up because he doesn't want to argue anymore. Char talks to Bright and delivers the letter from Mirai. Inside the envelope is a disk which contains a recorded message from Mirai and the kids. Bright cries when he sees his family again on screen.

 

Commentary

 

This was an interesting episode, especially considering what happened last time. Apparently Yazan didn't get into trouble for the "accident" with Jamaican, and he seems to be doing strange things like destroying Hizacks for the hell of it. He's just plain weird. He doesn't seem to get along well with Jerid, and it looks like Jerid had hoped to kill both Yazan and Kamille with the Mega Launcher. Jerid and Mouar get pretty close, so I imagine that means Kamille will kill her soon. Hayato makes a brief cameo in this episode, but Amuro doesn't seem to be around. Bright's display of emotion at the end is probably the most I've ever seen from him.
