Summary

 

Amu, Kyao and Daba check on Lilith, who still is asleep after what happened at Palarta Star. Kyao thinks she might stay like this forever and Amu slaps her. Kyao leaves, saying he has something else to do and Daba heads off too, telling Amu to look after Lilith. Wandering off on his own, Kyao thinks about what happened to Lilith when she stopped the reactor. An alarm goes off as Gavlet's A.Taul is leading a small force toward the asteroid base. After launching, Daba doesn't want the enemy to get close to Palarta Star and disrupt their plans for Star Dust. Although he's leading the attack, Gavlet doesn't want to be fighting here and would rather be trying to save Olibee. With Kyao's help, Amu damages Hashamoja's Space Graia, forcing him away. Daba and Gavlet do battle, but neither of them feel the other is fully concentrating on the fight. Rebel ships arrive, forcing Gavlet to retreat. Daba wonders what he is thinking. The Slender Skala rendezvous with the Krepaul and Rockley yells at Gavlet for retreating. Rockley wants to keep the enemy on the defensive while Gavlet wants to save Olibee. Rockley tells him while Olibee is captured by Giwaza, Poseidal will be able to see what's going on. Giwaza contacts Rockley, who plays down the importance of Olibee's life, angering both Gavlet and Giwaza. Rockley tells Gavlet they have to confuse Giwaza in order to save her and that Olibee's bio-sensor is going to wear off soon. Gavlet doesn't care about what Rockley has to say and heads off to save Olibee. The Slender Skala approaches Giwaza's Sarge Opus and Gavlet heads over there. He bows before Giwaza and Olibee and lies about being fooled by her looks into betraying him. Giwaza tells Gavlet that Olibee is nothing but a puppet. She thinks of being with her brother, Daba. Gavlet says they should kill her but that she would be good bait for Daba. Giwaza decides to give him Olibee and pushes her at him. Gavlet reveals his true intentions by rushing out to save her fall. The Olibee there is revealed to be nothing but a hologram. Giwaza tells Gavlet he won't be able to see Olibee again until he brings him Daba's head.

 

On the Turner, Amu and Kyao inform Daba that the Slender Skala has met up with Giwaza's ship. Daba starts heading off toward the dock. Amu tries to stop him from heading off on his own. Neither her nor Kyao thinks Daba should head out to save Olibee. Gavlet heads off on his A.Taul to kill Daba. Working at Palarta Star, the rebels hope they are able to get Star Dust on time despite all the attacks. Gavlet attacks the rebels, so Daba heads out in the L.Gaim Mk-II to attack him. Daba finds Gavlet much more determined this time to defeat him. Gavlet declares he's doing this for a girl he loves, Olibee. Daba is confused and doesn't think he's telling the truth. The Krepaul approaches the battle and attacks the Slender Skala, saying Gavlet might be switching sides. Elaine argues with Hashamoja, wanting to fight the Krepaul since Palarta Star doesn't pose as much of a threat this time. With the Slender Skala attacking them Rockley demands they attack it with all their force. Daba and Gavlet continue their fight and Daba tells Gavlet he has no reason to save Olibee. Gavlet says since he loves her that Daba has no right to save her. Daba reveals to Gavlet that Olibee is his sister and declares it's Gavlet who has no right to save her. The battle escalates with Palarta Star, the rebel ships, the Slender Skala and the Krepaul all firing at each other. Rockley seeks to capture Palarta Star to win Poseidal's favor and then topple Giwaza. On Palarta Star, Kyao convinces Ajin to not fire at the enemy and to continue working instead. Daba and Gavlet continue to fight over Olibee. When Amu arrives in the L.Gaim, both of them yell at her to not get involved in a man's battle. Daba tells Gavlet that he won't give him Olibee even if he kills him, and Gavlet tells Daba that Olibee is being used as a doll by Giwaza. Rockley's forces start suffering losses and Elaine contacts Gavlet, saying the Slender Skala can't take much more and must withdraw. Gavlet reluctantly withdraws and Daba tries to chase after him ,but Amu stops him. Gavlet reports to Giwaza, telling him he was unable to defeat Daba since Rockley got involved. Gavlet is upset that he must gain Giwaza's trust in order to get Olibee back.

 

Commentary

 

This is a pretty exciting episode as we quickly approach the rebels' implementation of their Star Dust plan. Gavlet now has more motivation than ever to fight Daba since he thinks he'll be able to get Olibee back by killing him. Since Olibee is an important part of Giwaza's plans in rebelling against Poseidal though, I doubt he would keep his promise. Looks like Gavlet is back with his A.Taul after using the G.Roon in the last episode. He and Daba had quite the epic debate, and it was funny to see them yelling at Amu not to get involved. Lilith still appears to be in some sort of hibernation, so hopefully she gets better soon.
