Episode Summary

EDIT
Escape from Side 1
AIRED:
The AEUG leadership approves Camille's enlistment as a regular soldier. Camille isn't sure he wants it, but accepts in order to continue piloting the Mark-II 03. He's concerned about his ability to control his latent Newtype powers. The Ahgama docks at Bunch 30 in Side 1 so that Camille and Emma can witness first-hand Basque's atrocity: three million inhabitants were killed with G-3 nerve gas to suppress anti-EUG activity there. Bunch 30 is now a cosmic ghost town. The Bosnia arrives and Layla leads her commando team into Bunch 30 to size up the opposition. Overhearing the AEUG explanation of the Bunch 30 Incident, she confronts the group with the Titan version -- AEUG rabble-rousers fomented a rebellion. Hostilities escalate and move outside, where Layla's Galbaldy-Beta is soon locked in mortal combat with Camille's Mark-II. The battle triggers Camille's Newtype powers and he kills Layla with a shot right through the cockpit. As she dies, Layla perceives the truth and projects her regret that there is no resolution to the conflict between Earth and its space colonies. Jared is devastated by Layla's death and calls off the attack. He swears vengeance against the pilot of the Mark-II, fulfilling Camille's vision of an endless cycle of violence and enmity between the two. Camille is confirmed as an AEUG soldier/pilot and, having witnessed the devastation of Bunch 30, has no regrets over Layla's death.moreless
