Lockon didn't win, but he only lost because Ali attacked him with GN-Fangs after Daryl made a suicide run that took off Dynames' right arm. At first I thought he just flew past Dynames, but watching it again in HD glory, he actually blow up on Dynames' side taking out its right arm. Dynames could almost hold its own against the Fangs with just one hand firing the GN Pistol but in the end it was too much and the Fangs got him.

Dynames was fighting without Trans-am or GN-Armor. The GN-Armor was destroyed at the start of the fight, and Dynames never got to go into Trans-am mode during the entire fight.

Just watched the raw...shit, Lockon's demise was quite BAWWW inducing. But I found it odd that he didn't use Trans-Am during the fights, that could've saved him.

If by "useless," you mean "chops off arm and gets assist-kill on an army-destroying mobile suit with his own arm already blown off," then you're right.

Graham will be angry, swear vengance as a flag fighter, and fight with a high-speed style Ali only wishes he had.



But...
Bah, this episode just didn't do it for me, for multiple reasons.

The fight was much too linear. The much-vaunted GN arms were pretty much sidelined after blowing a few enemies, and were so quickly overshadowed by the Trans-Am system that they may have well not been there in the first place. After episodes of hype about "if only we had the GN arms," we see what happens when we do. They fire, get owned, and insert Trans-Am.

The tragedy of this episode didn't hit me either. Nothing like the glory of the episode of the Wedding attack. Unlike that one, this episode didn't mix creative use of sound effects, different and varied art styles, and the kind of build up that was used then. For here, it was "Lockon fights Ali. Ali slowly wins, Darryl dies and gives Ali the critical advantage. Lockon abandons his MS, flies to a GN-cannon, and fails to kill Ali. Rather than dying immediately, Lockon is sent flying, rips of Spike, and is presumedly caught in an explosion that he didn't use his jetpack to get away from." That's sad, but it ain't tragic. And he didn't even use Trans-Am! What's up with that?

And of course, no Graham, no international politicos speaking, and not even any Saji. Even during the desert battle, Saji got 20s.

Overall, a mediocre episode. I feel worst for Darryl (who was a Graham friend and had actually been holding his own against the Gundams) and Felt (who never had a chance to be made a woman by Lockon. I think.).

I can't say it was completely unexpected, but I'm still very sad. I really, really hope that Ali will die soon (if he isn't already?).

And poor Felt ... (there goes my favorite pairing for the series).

Man i just watched it, its going to be a while before i can watch the last 3 mins againI have to say, Ali vs Lockon, i was impressed by Lockon's fighting skills in this episode, best ive ever seen him fight. What wonders motivation for revenge will do, definitely his shining moment. Im still upset that my favorite character is gone

I don't really think Ali is gone for good . From the looks of things , it seems lockon only hit Zwei's lower body . Besides , we didn't see any cockpit explosion or anything .

Says who? Darryl and Graham have been so obsessed with Mason and the Flags...

"Howard Mason!"
"Flag Fighter!
"The Flag!"
"Howard!"
"Mason!"
"Flag!"

It did explode even if he is alive nobody would probably pick him up (* insert car scene)

Woohoo, another one for Ali. He really equals results!

Found it a bit odd Ali had to scream 'FANGU!', but I guess that's the voice activation method for those things.

Now just hope he is alive. He probably is. Setsuna still has an axe to grind and his death would be rather cheap if this is it. On to fight another day!

And of course hoping Patrick will survive the next ep. It seems he is going up against Virtue/Nadleeh, so there is a realistic chance he is going to kick the bucket. Still, Patrick has come out alive in similar situations. I guess I have to keep my fingers crossed.

Heh, don't worry, Patrick can never die, he's too damn lucky.

This is probably one of the most impressive Gundam 00 episode, considering how they managed to maintain the animation quality amidst all the action, and how they killed off Lockon is such an emotional and manly style.

I have a feeling Patrick will never die in the series, he's been more goofy than anything else in this series. I think him and Kathy will make it out of this series, or atleast threw the first season. But we'll find out will we
