damn, another great ep with shocking moments ie lock on dieing . now lockon's death has made flay angry at kira for not saving him. felt only has a momento of lockon to hang on to even if the ms can be repaired w/o a pilot lined up for it. how many gn-x have been destrroyed in total??? i count 12-15 since they were introduced and 15 presumes only one made it out of the bunch of gnx vs dynames+gn arms. i cant wait for ep 24, kyrios seems to be in a dangerous situation vs alejandro's ms.

now I didn't say if and only if, did I?

If you want to shift gears from Ali to Lockon, Lockon's death shares some striking similarities to Trowa's "death" in Gundam Wing. So there's a chance he's alive...but I have to agree with some of the earlier posters, given his motivation in his fight with Ali and that in relation to the overall themes of this show, this had to be his death.

Wow. The recent episodes really changed my mind about Gundam 00.

This episode was pretty powerful as well.

Good job 00 team!

Lockon's gone. He was moved in the voice cast credits from the main Meister group to the rest of the cast. While he might not be dead parsay he's no longer considered one of the series leads. So he won't be showing up again for a long time if ever.

Think Lasse was piloting the container, with Exia docked on board. Setsuna was doing a transmission to the Ptolemaios at the back of the transporter. I reckon the stopped by somewhere, before heading out back into space.

That's been bothering me too. Ali had time to return to space, get a snazzy new uniform, and have Zwei restocked with Fangs (where did the AEU get those from? ). The UN forces were able to completely regroup too. And CB had time to repair serious damages to Dynames. That would take at least several hours. Since the GN-ARMS container seems to be able to get to space by itself and it only takes less than two hours to completely orbit the earth at that height without any power at all... where the hell was Setsuna!? I'll be pissed if he was off sneaking into Marina's room again. x__x I like Jihad-kun but I hope Tieria punches him in the face.

And for that matter, how long have Ribbons and Alejandro been on the moon?

The HRL have access to the base the Trinity's were using. They probably got the spare parts from there. Ali was with the HRL.

As for why it took Setsuna and Lasse longer, they have to be careful how they return to space or they risk getting attacked. It's be shown several times since the 3 powers got the GN-X's, they've been able to track/find the Gundams fairly well. It's not like before where CB got away with anything they pleased.

Was he able to take Ali down with him?

With the way the blast looked like it seemed that it cut the bottom and right after Ali fired a shot we see his suit explode which engulfed the torso., especially since it was right next to the cockpit.

If he is dead one thing for sure is that we all thought that it would've been Ali vs. Setsuna and not Lockon. But then again Lockon has a need of revenge against him.

It takes time to reconfigure a suit to a completely different power source, not to mention the part redesign needed to install the GN Drive onto the Flag. Plus this is new tech to them.

I wish they'd start sparing the comrades and killing the Three Block aces themselves. THAT I would start cheering for.

i just presumed that they had enuff time within the CB1 battles and when they showed it in ep 22.

i got a gn-x count. ep 20:3 - eins, exia, gn arms.
21: NA,
23: 6 confirmed, 7unconfirmed: 3 kryios (1 unconfimed when soma met him). 2 virtue. 7 dynames: 1 confirmed 6 unconfirmed.(daryl's squad)
so at most they 13 gn-x with a minimum of 6 destroyed.

I suppose that would be a step up and possible now that they have their deusex transam. Eh, I'd rather cheer Soma, Sergei, & Graham on than the meisters. Patrick on the other hand...hehe, he's funny but I don't care either way.

Fixing something you know inside out takes less time than trying to reconfigure something with brand new tech you're just learning about. For the GN-X's they were probably given the blueprints so they just follow that. For the Flag, they're altering stuff to fit something it isn't designed for.
