Towards the end, it looked like Chamber mercilessly killed the human like Hideauze without Ledo's permission....

He did, but that was because he's programmed to kill them. He isn't entirely capable of suddenly thinking "Oh wait, they're human" and not kill them just because he saw a video contradicting everything he's been programmed to view as fact.

But yeah, "OH S***" revelation.

How long is this series supposed to be, anyway? Episode 9 seems pretty early for such a plot-shattering development, unless this is a one-cour show. If this is supposed to be a 24-26 episode series, it means we've got some really serious "OH S***" moments on the way.

This, holy sh*t I absolutely didn't saw it coming, it's the biggest twist I see in an anime in a while.

If they wanted to make us empathize in the "crushing" scene just after, it was more than successful .

But seriously, I think this episode should at least partially restore the show's reputation in the haters' eyes.

Also...

Booom! Plot gets blown up. I felt as if Ledo was convinced emotionally a bit too easily, but we shall see. Happy ending: he integrates with Gargantia and he and Amy live happily ever after. Tragedy: how will he exculpate himself from killing all those evolved humans? By dying? Has he destroyed the future for Gargantia and the others? Will the local Hideauze be able to realize that he is not a killer any more?

Will he have to power Chamber down, to avoid it killing more of the evolved humans? Perhaps the story from here on is Ledo against Chamber.

Anyway, this is a development I did not anticipate. That they might be friendly aliens, I did. But evolved humans? Not in my mind.

By the way, I expect a happy ending by ep13, with the two BD episodes like OVAs showing life for LedoxAmy. But I have happily been surprised already, so who knows.
Hmm, from what I gathered from the episode was, these Whale-Squids are not evolved humans, rather, they're the descendants of the artificially created beings that when combined with humans, become the space-Hideauze.

There seems to be three different species involved here.

Humans - homosapiens
Whale-Squids - the "Evolveds" created by humans, that can adapt to any environment
Hideauze - Human genes combined with the Evolveds, and set out to conquer space. In conflict with old human race over territorial conflict.

Whale-squids looking somewhat humanoid is probably because they were created to combine with human genes in the first place.

..... why would you need to spoiler tag about content of an episode that already aired, in the thread about the said episode?

What is that whalesquid at the end? Failed experiment?
Totally looks different from the rest of the whalesquids.

There's a scene at the end of the video where one of those whalesquids approaches a diver and has the caption "Elaine Matsumoto" appear next to it. The name of the guy whose face we see on the various ocean- and space-deployed whalesquids is Matsumoto, and we see his wife and daughter, so presumably one of them was changed into the humanoid whalesquid.

Which raises the question of whether the whalesquid of Gargantia's time are able to create the humanoid whalesquid on their own or... if people from the surface are being merged into whalesquid—and in that case, whether that's voluntary or not.

Well, that thoroughly answers the question posed by the freeze-frame bonus whalesquid butt shot from a couple of episodes ago.

Ledo/Chamber conflict looms. It was interesting that Chamber would defer to Ledo wanting to see the video, but went completely autonomous with regard to squishing Ika Musume (nod to the image thread here).

Next issue: We know that the Evolvers planned to go through the wormhole gate and then blow it up, but the Continental Union managed to get around that somehow (and became the Galactic Alliance). Obvious remaining question is whether the gate really did get blown up, because that part is left off of the end of the video.

The underwater fight was interesting to watch.
Ledo was tearing them apart with ease.
Pinion's greed/personal vendetta was a dangerous one.
Don't think it's worth pissing off the whale squids..
The vast amount of new info left me speechless.
OMG the history behind everything was shocking and disturbing.
Awesome episode this time!
