Episode Summary

The members of Able Squad prevent Marsh's guards from taking him to his execution. They launch, and Marsh leads an e-frame assault on the Neo flagship, which gives the ExoFleet the opportunity to escape. Able Squad was left behind, and they land on Earth, near Chicago. The ExoFleet is badly damaged in its engagement with the Neo sapiens, and is forced to withdraw from the inner solar system. Phaeton begins to tighten his grip on the Homeworlds through programs such as the required registration of natural-born humans. In an attempt to recruit new resistance members, while also allowing Able Squad to return to the ExoFleet, Napier broadcasts a message that is well received by Terrans, but outrages Phaeton. Able Squad escapes, but leaves their e-frames for the resistance to use.moreless

    • QUOTES (4)

      • (On Earth)
        Tanaka: While you heroes were up there flying around, we were getting slaughtered. You were supposed to protect us.
        Lt. J.T. Marsh: Hold on! Phaeton tricked us like he did everybody else! We lost half the fleet and a lot of good troopers today.
        Tanaka: Yeah? Well we lost our planet.

      • (Boom)
        Phaeton: What's happening?!
        Typhonus: Terran e-frames on a collision course with the bridge.
        Phaeton: Such an attack has no logic. It is suicide. All craft, intercept attacking e-frames!

      • (In the middle of a major battle)
        Adm. Winfield: Alright, what's going on out there lieutenant.
        Lt. J.T. Marsh: Getting beat up pretty good admiral. But if you'll give me half the e-frames, I think I can spring your carriers loose.
        Capt. Marcus: Admiral!
        Adm. Winfield: Quiet captain! Lieutenant, the e-frames are yours.
        Lt. J.T. Marsh: This is able squad leader. Baker, charlie squads, reform on me! All other e-frames return to carriers. Target the neosapien flagship. Divert their fire from our carriers! Concentrate fire on the bridge. We'll make Phaeton wish he never left Mars.

      • (Marsh's reaction upon hearing an order come from Admiral Winfield, who had been in a coma)
        Marsh: I thought you were half-dead sir.
        Winfield: And I heard you were in the brig.

      • Alice Noretti, as yet to be introduced in episode 6, makes her 2nd cameo-appearance in this episode. You get to see her perform a fancy move and crash land in a hangar deck. She also pilots an exo-frame similar to Wolf Bronsky's.
