You know, I really like Soma and Sergei... They are good-hearted people, and I hope there is a happy-end for them. At the very least, I want to see Soma survive in the final episode. Odds are against them, especially being pleasant side characters, but one can dream.
I'm guessing that only Choubu units will be getting the upgrade.

For an ep with no action, this is pretty good.

Last week kinda felt like "End of part 1", what with the narration etc. With new OP/ED and a lot of good setup stuff, it really felt like the start of "part 2" this week.

Couple of interesting points from this ep:

CB have a secret dock in an asteroid field near the Union colony at L1.

Tieria thinks everything is going according to Veda's predictions so far but the main points of concern are revelation of space-sniping ability and Nadleeh... and "Setsuna F Seiei".

Billy sure seems to have the hots for Sumeragi - including leaking military secrets to her. She drops an interesting plant while acting like independent battle-forecaster - that there could be more than 4 Gundams.

Orange-kun is back and likes hot women enough that he'll instantly recover from being punched twice by one

The Union's anti-Gundam unit is now fully formed and comprised of upgraded Flags.

Louise turns into a cry-baby when mother leaves and Saji ropes in Setsuna to try to comfort her - "at least you can meet her at any time - she's still alive". Meanwhile, Saji's sister's reporting is doing well.

Union and HRL working together in a big way happened quicker than expected. Is there something working behind the scenes?

Still no clearer which way Setsuna and Marina's relationship is going to go. It was almost going Arabian Nights for a bit there, but after breaking into a princess's bedroom, Setsuna starts a philosophical argument

Ali's looking forward to "war".

Too early. Ep 13 is for revealing new enemy units. Setsuna would be getting his upgrade from ep 26 onwards, not a moment sooner.

You did remember this is a 50 episode series, right?
I mean, if Setsuna gets a new Gundam this quickly, he would go through three Gundams by the time the series finish. That's too much even for Sunrise.

Episode 14 Screencaps and Summary

Forget the new OP - I immediately fell in love with the new ED. I loved the contrast between the peaceful haircut with the shots of the sea of blood and everyone in pain.

After pausing and looking at the frames, it does seems that Thrones Eins is attacking Exia... so the thrones are indeed villains?

I really like how at the end of the episode , Setsuna
Spoiler for episode 14:

Awesome.
After that people wondered how come they crazy girl with a gun was able to get close enough from Marina in ep 13 .
There is no more doubt that she is a walking target it's like they are saying " please , go ahead , just kill her ! " .

back at the thrones , looks like they are...not going to be CB allies , now that's a good news , Gundam Vs Gundam is always good.

I quite liked this episode. For some reason, this set-up episode feels more immersing. Probably due to the better balance, along with newer introductions.

And lol Renegade, Ali did shave after all. Only the end of this episode, not the previous.

The only thing I didn't quite like how UN came back to help Azadistan immediately after the whole conflict was swelled (( would've like to seen some political yadayadas after the not-so-effective peace talks )) and the abrupt Arabian Nights scene. It felt really out of place, but I suppose they don't have all the time in the world to develop whatever relationship Setsu and Mari will build.

And I wish they stop saying Setsuna's full name. I've gotten used to Celestial Being and Meister a long time ago, but not and probably never 'F.Seiei'.

Well, in Seed and Seed Destiny, the Freedom and the Destiny are shown as silhouette in the 2nd opening even though they appeared in episode 30 something...so maybe I thought we can get at least some idea what's it gonna look like

Since the series is split in half, Sunrise probably don't want to worry about mecha designs that won't even be around for another 8 months. It would be a better use of resources in putting those designers to work on mecha that will appear in this half of the story, as such it is likely Setsuna's future new-ride hasn't left the drawingboard yet.

Thrones are another Order of Angels, like Kyrios and Virtue. Hence they are another class of CB Gundams. (Note that Thrones are higher up the chain of command than the other Angel classes shown so far, so they are suppose to be more powerful.)
