After having been in several battles, Flit is beginning to brood over needing to fight. Woolf thinks that it's because Flit's becoming the combat junkie that he is, though Flit says that although he doesn't want to fight, he feels obligated to use the Gundam to protect people from the UE. Emily, however, is still where she was last episode, completely against Flit having anything to do with combat and determined to prevent him from fighting... though Woolf wholeheartedly supports Flit's resolve.

Overall, this episode was almost decent, but still had ore than its fair share of flaws.
First, I find Dique to be the most irritating and useless person in the show thus far. Bouncing around the ship's bridge (why'd they even let him in?), yelling "Wow, that's amazing!" at everything he sees... it's like he's there just to kill time and be grating on the ears.
Emily is also grating on me, for her "I can't allow Flit to be involved with the Gundam any more" stance. Like I said last episode, it's only been his entire motivation to live for most of his life, so she should have worked out those issues years ago.
Those character problems aside, I only have four specific complaints about the episode.
One: The officer (not) arresting Grodek... he tells the guards that Grodek was cleared and to leave him alone. However, the Inspection Bureau, which issued the arrest warrant would not have agreed with that decision... so how will he explain to them Grodek's non-arrest? I don't know, and I don't think the writers know either.
Two: The sub-command room that Grodek used to talk with the EFF military and upload the virus would probably be a restricted area, but Emily just walks right in? There's a major security problem there.
Three: Mostly the same as the above, just dealing with Dique on the ship's bridge, which would be, arguably, at least as restricted as the sub-command room. Why is he being allowed to cause a disturbance on the bridge?
Four: Desil and Flit. Why the hell does Flit decide to take him all the way back to the Diva to bandage a scraped knee? Is there no first aid station in the colony? Or in the spaceport? And after that, just bringing a random kid into the ship's MS hangar? Are you freaking kidding me?
