The second episode. Joe dogfights a relentless "Cyborg X" in plane to plane combat. 009 is about to head home, when 003 spots something in the ocean. The pilot announces himself as "Cyborg X", bursts into Gilmore's laboratory, leaves a television screen with a message, and then retreats, but not before fixing some roses that he knocked, leaving 003 to wonder about his {{Backstory}} which gets more interesting when he sees his girlfriend, and reveals to her his "modifications".
