Episode Summary

EDIT
The Journey Begins
AIRED:
The Ahgama's Mega Particle Cannon blows a hole in the side of Green Noah 1, allowing Quattro's confederates to pilot a pair of Rick Dias (RMS-099) Mobile Suits into the colony in an attempt to capture a Gundam Mark-II. A squad of general-purpose GM-II (RGM-79R) Mobile Suits intercepts them. Jared has shut down his Mark-II 01 and witnesses a battle between the Rick Dias and GM-IIs as he dismounts. Meanwhile, Camille has made his way to the R&D station, where he boards Mark-II 03. He is spotted by Emma Sheen, 03's Titan pilot, who tries to stop him. Bright Noah also sees Camille and recognizes him as the son of the "Black Gundam" project chief engineer Franklin Vidan. He is reminded of the original Gundam (RX-78) pilot Amuro Rei, who often worked in and around his father's Mobile Suit projects, and does nothing to stop the boy. Camille surprises everyone by attacking and disabling the remaining Mark-II 02. (His father is the chief engineer in charge of the modification, which his mother designed, and he knows more than he should about the new Mobile Suits.) Quattro, back in his own "Red Comet" Rick Dias, offers to cease fire in return for safe passage with the damaged Mark-II 02 -- the EUG forces are outclassed and further hostilities will only destroy more of the civilian community. Bright Noah agrees and Camille, fed up with Titan rule, follows the AEUG Mobile Suits in the Mark-II 03. Camille is disturbed when he sees that Fa's house has been leveled by the conflict, but is relieved when he catches sight of her fleeing from the wreckage. Back at the R&D station, Bright Noah is brutally beaten for his failure to protect the Mark-II prototypes by Titan commander Basque Ohm's staff while Emma Sheen looks on, disturbed by the violence of her fellow Titans. As Camille follows the AEUG Mobile Suits toward the Ahgama, he begins to feel his Newtype power awaken within him.moreless
