That line can so be taken out of context.
The calm before the storm episode. Exia, Virtue and Dynames face off with the Thrones, with Nadleeh revealing a hidden feature that allows him to control any unit linked to Veda, after stopping Eins and Zwei from doing that docking thing. I love that actually. Docking in the middle of a battle is really illogical. But Tieria should’ve let them dock and then activate that Trial Feature. Makes them an easier target. Anyways, the Thrones retreat, leaving a parting gift, Setsuna’s background and real name.
Setsuna’s real name turns out to be Sorun Ibrahim, which really doesn’t fully sound Arabic, but who am I to judge Sunrise’s naming sense? He was also part of the KP-something, who decided to suicide bomb Ireland for some reason, I suspect it’s the Irish love for alcohol since there’s no other reason why Ireland would be screwing up with the world’s oil export market, which took out Lockon’s entire family. This sparks a faceoff between Lockon and Setsuna, and I really expected better of Lockon, but it seems my expectations were too high. Long story short, he decides to trust in Setsuna after shooting off some hair. *rolls eyes*
As for Louise, okay I was wrong, she still has her legs working fine. God damn Sunrise plot armor. Anyways, she decides to split it off with Saji, because she’s going to be a burden and cue emotional flashbacks complete with insert songs. Just as they were gaining some brownie points… they had to spoil it so soon. Well, hopefully that’ll be the last we’ll be seeing of random Louise x Saji moments.
Saji’s sister also gets some headway in her investigation of “Lagna”, who turns out to be her boss. Meanwhile, a “rat” in CB contacts the three main powers and leads them to a base in Antartica, chockful of solar furnaces. I’m starting to think CB’s “eradicate war” ideal is to “let them kill each other after we stir them up with our technology”. I’m starting to envision an Last Exile-ish situation in the future with CB as “The Guild”, regulating battles between the three super powers.
