Athrun intervenes in the battle between Kira, Shinn, and Rey, which shocks Shinn who believed that he had killed Athrun previously. Athrun demands that Shinn stop attacking Orb and questions the motives of the war. Yuna is crushed by a GOUF Ignited when he tried to escape while Djibril successfully escapes to the Moon aboard an orbital shuttle. With the ZAFT flagship destroyed, Captain Gladys takes command and orders a temporary retreat. After the battle, Cagalli broadcasts a global announcement about the war with Logos but she is interrupted by Meer, who is in turn interrupted by the real Lacus.


  • This episode shows Destiny losing its beam sword for the second time. The first one being episode 37 after Shinn's Gundam destroyed the ZGMF-X2000 GOUF Ignited piloted by Athrun (and Meyrin)
