Gungrave - Season 1 - Episode 26

Bunji’s cat wanders the streets, chasing his master’s ghost. Grave and Harry enter the clubhouse and sit down in their old booth across from each other. Harry reflects on how Brandon was brought back and if Brandon truly understood all of what Harry had really been doing the whole time: the murders, necrolyzation research, everything. Harry believes that Brandon hasn’t changed a bit in all these years and asks Brandon why he didn’t kill him back then. Brandon responds that he believed that Harry could become “Millennion.” Harry revels in what he believes to be true, but Brandon tells him that Millennion isn’t just about power and control. Brandon and Harry each see one another as the one who betrayed. Harry pulls out a bottle of bourbon from the year they were born and proposes a toast. Harry realizes that Big Daddy’s words were true, Big Daddy was the original, the whiskey, Harry was only a derivative, bourbon. However, Harry sees Big Daddy as evil as his crimes, but Brandon points out that Big Daddy knew his mistakes and still tried to seek “harmony” in all things. This, Brandon says, is what Millennion is all about. Harry can’t stand Brandon’s loyalty to Big Daddy, and tries to figure out where things all went so wrong. Harry then lays Brandon and Harry’s guns from the elevator sequence, which ended in Brandon’s death, on the table. As they draw their guns at one another, they share a memory of a cloth blowing in the wind, obscuring the sun. They both turn and fire at a Millennion agent at the window, and we’re shown reinforcements gathering all around them. As the agents open fire on the building, the two men join sides once again, attempting to stave off the forces surrounding them. As Brandon dives in front of Harry, Brandon takes two bullets to the chest and pins two of the assailants to the ground, gun drawn. Brandon looks into their eyes and decides to spare their lives. Harry demands to know why Brandon is defending them; the
