    I'll be all honest I personally think this episode is underrated so I'll just give my honest two cents about the episode.



    What I like about the episode is there is genninue emotion going on between the two. Yeah there is the typical spy plot going on but it's not that important what was important was the interaction between Mainframe and Zarana which is a bittersweet love story. You really believe in the both of them as a couple, we can see how both of them interact and warm up to one another. At first we see when Zarana in her disguise first meets Mainframe she thinks that Mainframe is a bit of a dork. But then of course when a incident where her life is in danger she then has that look of supprise seeing her savior. I really liked that expression on her face, it's obvious that no one has ever really done anything like that for her. There is just a range of emotion between the two, which really creates a sense of depth and humanity. It's great how Zarana gets charmed and warms up to Mainframe's personality where he's sweet, funny, and smart. Likewise for a little of Zarana's persona which is a little feisty, fiery, but there is a sense of warmth inside that he can sense that Mainframe actually likes. And of course my favorate moment was as Zarana is driving away with her brother Zartan away from the bomb planted in the same place Mainframe is unconcious. But we see something inside her says stop this is wrong, she realizes the consequence of her action is losing the one she loves. So we see her do something rather supprising which is what any person that loves another should do, and that is save him. Another great moment was of course after the save Zarana reveals who she is and why she saved him, despite the side she's on Mainframe understands her and his feelings haven't changed. Both love each other because of who the other is, the sides their on don't matter and I feel thats a good message.



    The end was bittersweet when we see a final image of both Mainframe and Zarana in two different places thinking about one another and wondering if next time they meet will they be enimies or something much more special. Though what makes this episode a little sadder was this wasn't built on a bit more further in the show, which was too bad. In the heat of war love can bloom for two different souls in two seperate sides of the battlefield.moreless
