Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam - Season 1 - Episode 50

Emma and Camille, huddled aboard a wrecked ship, have a last heart-to-heart. She urges him to take her life and use it to fight. Meanwhile, Char is ducking it out with Hamaan and Scirocco inside the barrel of the colony laser. The terrible twosome quickly dismantle Char's Type 100, and the action then shifts to the inner rooms of the super weapon. The trio are joined by Camille and Fa for more pistol-waving, pontificating, philosophizing action; then they all hop back into their mobile suits and hightail it out of the colony laser. Bright, who's been patiently waiting for his pilots to clear the barrel, then activates the colony laser and disintegrates the Titans fleet. Final duel time! Hamaan and Char end up slugging it out inside another wrecked ship. Char almost wins, despite the fact his mobile suit has about one limb left, but he forgot about the Quebeley's funnels. Hamaan offers him a chance to live and serve her (declined), then Char nails the ship's Secret Self-Destruct Widget with the Type 100's vulcans and blows it up around them. Hamaan escapes. Meanwhile, Camille discovers how frustrating it is to fight an indestructible mobile suit. Giving up on defeating Scirocco through conventional means, he summons all the friendly newtype ghosts at his disposal (Emma, Four, Rozamia) to hold the cold-blooded manipulator in place (Sara's ghost almost intervenes to help her man, but Katsu's ghost talks her out of it). Transforming the Zeta into wave rider mode, Camille plows into Scirocco's mobile suit and crushes him into pulp (very memorable!). The dying Scirocco fries Camille's teeny brain in revenge. The end. Fa collects her childhood pal, now with the IQ of a pork cutlet. The Titans are history, the Axis withdraw to pursue world domination, the AEUG are all but wiped out, the colony laser has supposedly blown a gasket. And the torso of the Type 100 drifts by, its cockpit hatch open, empty...?

The Audomura heads for New Guinea to capture another shuttle so Camille can return to the Ahgama. Kai has contacts with the Luio Company in Hong Kong that will get them the weapons they need for this mission.

Murasame Psychic Institute sends the experimental Psycho Gundam (MRX-009) and crew to replace the Asshimar. Wooda is not pleased to learn that both new crewmembers are women -- the "synthetic" Newtype Four Murasame and her mentor Namikar Cornell. Amuro and Irma check out the Luio Company, where Amuro spots Mirai Noah (nee Yashima), who piloted White Base during the One Year War. She is now married to Bright Noah and is trying to get on a shuttle flight to a space colony with their two children, Hathaway and Charmaine.

Irma, Mirai and the kids get away while the guards pile into Amuro, getting to the street just in time to witness the arrival of Psycho Gundam.

Camille, Amuro and Mirai all feel its powerful aura. The monster Psycho Gundam batters the Mark-II across Hong Kong until Camille uses his own Newtype power to break Four's concentration.

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam - Season 1 - Episode 49

While the Agama makes its way back to the rest of the AEUGO fleet, the Titans and Axis have both shown up to try and wrest back control of the colony laser. A vicious three-way battle begins, with AEUGO, Hamaan's Axis and Scirocco's Titans throwing all their forces into the fray. Thus begins the Great Character Purge. Emma and Katsu dock to form the Super Gundam and fend off Yazan's Hambrabi trio; Katsu insists on sticking around to fight in his puny cockpit capsule, and Yazan chases him into an asteroid. A furious Emma blows away Yazan's wingmen, but the enemy ace sneaks up behind her and blasts the Gundam's back. Like an idiot, Henken maneuvers the Radish into the fight to try and cover Emma - cover a mobile suit with a battleship! - and Yazan doesn't even break a sweat as he shoots the Radish to pieces. One very funny moment: Scirocco and Reccoa charge into battle, facing about a hundred Axis mobile suits. Suddenly there's a blaze of light, as Char - sitting on the sidelines - toasts the Axis forces with his mega bazooka launcher, leaving Scirocco all dressed up with nobody to fight. Meanwhile, the Agama contingent finally arrives. Camille is intercepted by Jerid, but shrugs him off with little effort; Jerid's crippled mobile suit spins off and plows into the wreck of the Radish, blowing whatever's left of the ship and its crew into space dust. Emma, her Gundam repaired, sets out to duel Reccoa. The two former friends strike, and Emma scores a dead hit. Emma recklessly gets out to inspect the wreck of Reccoa's mobile suit and see if she's still alive; Yazan, lurking nearby, opens fire, hits the wrecked mobile suit, and it explodes. Emma takes a hunk of burning shrapnel in the gut. Camille hulks out, chops up Yazan's mobile suit (though the fiend himself escapes), and collects Emma's dying body.

In the mess hall, Reccoa can't eat and rebuffs both Quattro and Camille. Aboard the Dogoth Gear, Scirocco warns Sara to watch herself around Yazan, who seems to be everywhere these days. After consulting with Quattro, Bright agrees to attack the Dogoth Gear. Quattro plans a sniper attack using the Type-100 and Mega Bazooka, but Reccoa will have to set up the shot for him and provide additional power from her Gelgoog's batteries. Scirocco gives Yazan a Hambrabi as they join forces, but Sara worries about this uneasy alliance. Camille leads a head-on assault against the Dogoth Gear while Quattro and Reccoa snipe from the rear. Yazan launches just before Quattro's first shot destroys the launch ramp. Reccoa senses Scirocco's presence and flies off toward the Dogoth Gear to join him. Yazan closes with Camille, his Hambrabi mauling Z-Gundam. Reccoa intervenes, almost taking a shot meant for Yazan, and Scirocco recognizes her Gelgoog from the Jupiteris encounter. Camille and Reccoa are forced back by Yazan, who destroys Reccoa's Gelgoog. Camille picks Reccoa up as she ejects, but Z-Gundam is defenseless. As Yazan closes in for the kill, a hundred Gaza-Cs (AMX-003) appear and drive the Titans off.

Threatened by the Colony Laser at Grips 2, the citizens of Granada evacuate through underground tunnels while the Ahgama and Radish dock with La Vie en Rose for supplies. Camille, Emma, Fa and Quattro meet with the doctor, who tells them that Rosamia is an artificial Newtype. The Titans have given her false memories in hopes of preventing the personality breakdown that destroyed Four, but their plan backfired when Camille turned up looking like her fictitious older brother. The similarity of surnames -- Vidan and Vadam -- may also have been a factor. In any case, Rosamia is both a powerful and inherently unstable Newtype. Aboard the Dogoth Gear, Basque orders a test of the Bound Dock (NRX-055) with Rosamia as pilot. AEUGO goes on the offensive to keep the Titans too busy to use their Colony Laser, attacking a flotilla en route to Bunch 13 (Side 2). Rosamia attacks Fa's Methuss, but is driven back by Z-Gundam. Rosamia is torn between her conditioned hatred of Z-Gundam and her implanted love of her "brother" Camille. As they drift into Bunch 13, he tries to win her over, citing how much her playmates Qum and Shinta miss her. Meanwhile, Quattro finds a pair of Hizacks attaching a G-3 gas bomb to the hull and blasts it. Camille almost wins Rosamia over, but her controllers arrive in a prototype Bound Dock and activate the psycho-wave amplifier used with Four at Kilimanjaro. Rosamia tranforms her Bound Dock into its grotesque combat mode, a mechanical monster four times the size of Z-Gundam, but as before Camille can't bring himself to kill her. Quattro fires on the controller's Bound Dock and disables the psycho-wave. Rosamia loses her fighting spirit and both Bound Docks retreat. Basque returns to Grips 2 and the deadly Colony Laser.

Katsu objects openly and is thrown into the brig along with Shinta and Qum, who joined in his disruption. Camille flies Z-Gundam under a flag of truce to the Gwadan, where Haman greets him royally. AEUGO is asking for her assistance in destroying the Colony Laser that threatens them both. Haman flies to the Ahgama in her new Qubeley (AMX-004) and agrees to the alliance on the condition that "Zion" (Side 3) is "restored" under Axis and that "Char Aznable" acknowledges Minerva (and, by implication, Haman) as its rightful ruler. Quattro reluctantly agrees. At Grips 2, Basque is preparing to fire the Colony Laser at Granada. Fa joins Katsu and the children in the brig to watch over them, which insults Katsu no end. The Ahgama's Mobile Suits spearhead the assault and, sensing that the tide is turning against them, Fa and Katsu join them. The Gwadan fires a broadside that disables the Colony Laser's core pulse engine, preventing it from rotatating for a clear shot at Granada. Haman has kept her end of the bargain and saved the day. The Ahgama links up with the Gwadan for Quattro's promised audience with Minerva and Haman.

#37 - Activation of Gryps

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam - Season 1 - Episode 40

The Ahgama prepares to attack Grips 2 before the Colony Laser can be deployed. Rosamia, like her predecessor Four, displays wild mood swings and headaches, behaving childishly much of the time. She especially displays a childish fear of doctors, which makes Emma suspicious. At Grips 2, Reccoa is enchanted by Scirocco, who gives her the Messala to lead a squad of Barzams against the Ahgama. Camille recognizes the Messala, which was last piloted by Sara. He and Emma are shocked to learn that it's now piloted by Reccoa, who is unhappy about changing sides but certain of Scirocco's success. Z-Gundam pins the Messala against an asteroid and Camille tries to talk to Reccoa, but she rejects him and escapes. Basque fires the Colony Laser at Side 2, destroying Bunch 18 the same way Giren Zabi destroyed the Peace Conference during the One Year War.

#38 - The Jupitris Infiltration

Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam - Season 1 - Episode 28

Quattro, Bright and Henken discuss their campaign on Earth and the need for information on the Titan's new variable Mobile Suits. Reccoa will fly an old Gelgoog salvaged from the derelict EUG ship Republic to the Jupiteris, where she will present herself as a stateless refugee survivor of a deep-space accident. Camille fears for Reccoa's safety after the Jabrow fiasco, but Fa defends her -- Reccoa knows what she's doing. Later, Reccoa admits to Fa that part of the reason she's taking the mission is to regain her confidence. Fa becomes jealous when Camille goes out in Z-Gundam to fly escort for Reccoa. Aboard the Dogoth Gear, Scirocco continues to charm Sara as her training nears completion. The Titans track Reccoa's approach and Sara goes out in the Messala. Camille watches from an asteroid as Reccoa enters the Jupiteris, where her cover story is accepted. Scirocco visits the Jupiteris on an inspection tour. Sara discovers Z-Gundam at the same time that Scirocco discovers Reccoa. As Sara closes in on Camille, she is attacked in turn by Fa, who has followed Camille in the Methuss. Reccoa escapes as the Messala is damaged and forced to retreat, but the Methuss is crippled and has to ride back to the Ahgama on the back of Z-Gundam in its Wave Rider mode. Aboard the Ahgama, Reccoa sketches the Mobile Suits she saw on the Jupiteris for Bright, but is unable to get the handsome and charismatic Scirocco off her mind.
