The Emperor of Mars calls for a cease fire while he considers the truth behind the events on Earth. Inaho and friends take the moment to rest aboard the Watdatsumi while Asseylum ponders if she should reveal her identity to everyone. Rayet disagrees, telling Asseylum that doing so will only paint a large target on their backs for the Martian Knights. Vlad returns in his repaired Kataphract, now with twin beam katanas, looking for a rematch against "the orange" training Kataphract that Inaho piloted earlier. As he cuts through the carrier's defenses, Inaho rises to the challenge by baiting him into an attack and then rigging his own Kataphract to drag Vlad into the ocean, where the combined heat from the engines and plasma from the beam sabers sparks a steam explosion, killing Vlad. Meanwhile, Slaine tries to inform the Vers Emperor that Asseylum is still alive and that some of the Knights conspired to go to war. Just as he leaves the room, Saazbaum appears, claiming that Slaine was feeding him false information. The Emperor immediately calls for war.
