He did get hit by a piece of rock in this ep though. Not very lucky.

Then again, it saved him from being at bad place in a bad time; so...lucky!

Well, i think that's a good kill ratio, one dead gundam meister for how many U.N casualties?

I think the U.N will definitely classify this assault as a failure, there will be political fallout from this, that will be certain.

i wonder if it will be enough to shatter this union?

Just finished watching the RAW. I have to agree this is the best episode yet, especially during Lockon's final monologue. Its so powerful and emotional....there goes my favourite character

You know those fem-mecha that inevitably spring up during each gundam series, with girls wearing the MS but showing lots of skin?

For 00, the Custom Flag and regular Flag better be hanging on Graham's soldiers, even as Graham flirts with Fem!Exia.

Just watched the RAW.... LOCKON!!! WHY!?

*sob* Darn it man... This is too much! Alot of fans are going to cry over this ep...

But one thing's for sure, Lockon fought till the very end. He even managed to snipe his last shot with his right eye. A truly sad death... Though this reminds me of CE abit... Particularly the last part where Setsuna failed to save Lockon.

Seriously, I'm really crying even as I type this reply.... He may be an anime character, but the flashbacks, the music, the aura, the Haro( Though we don't see Haros cry, but repeating someone's name endlessly is much more heartbreaking).... This ep really got me into tears.

There goes the Feldt x Lockon pairing... The Meisters are really going all-out this time. Though I can see that Tieria's chewing out on Setsuna in the preview....

R.I.P Gundam Meister, Lockon Stratos.
*holds up a "bang" gesture*

Goodbye and good riddance, Lockon Stratos. You won't be missed. The people you killed will be.

This is Gundam. Can we really write off any main character without seeing their body cut in half/impaled by beam saber/head chopped off? Look what happened to Mwu La Flagga. He ended up floating in space without a helmet after Strike blew up. Although I have to admit, it would be lame to bring Lockon back after giving him that nice monologue.

If that happens... 00 would be f**ked up....

The only thing that really disturbed me during that flashback.. was that his TWIN brother didn't even look somewhat simmilar to him, one of them was bigger.. and one had darker hair... though in the grave scene we saw they were identical... (maybe this was just to make us tell who Lockon/Neil was.. but it was still weird.. though a very touching scene)

Perhaps because that was his sister (who I believe is named Amy) and not his brother.

IIRC those on the table was his twin and wee sister. The scene was looked through Lockon's eyes, correct me if i'm wrong.

zetsubou shitaaaaa.... T___T I cried. That was one of the most powerful scenes I've seen in anime. Even though we don't see definitive proof of death and Mwu magically survived being blown up, I have a terrible feeling that Lockon isn't coming back...

That wasn't his twin, that was his little sister. The twin wasn't in the scene at all though there is a plate set up for a fifth person so we can assume he was around somewhere.

Arrow He Wasn't Inside When It Blew Up...

I'm still holding out hope against hope that somehow, Lockon was thrown clear of the blast. I like his character so much I could actually forgive a cheesy resurrection.

They have done this allready... in Wing and GS/D (twice in GS/D actually), so chances might be a bit higher than just 0

and my bad for the wrong twin asumption.. I kinda forgot about the sis... well I need to watch it again a few more times.. I'll pay more attention to that scene the next time... cause I was all teary eyed the first time t.t

Yeah, though you have to wonder why the writers didn't include him in the flashback. I mean yeah the plate was shown, and i think there's something much more to it then what we've been shown.
