Although chapter 51 was mostly a Tear Jerker, we do have the legendary moment of Dan telling Rachel to fuck off. It might have had unfortunate consequences for him later but it was still very satisfying in the moment and incredibly badass.
- What makes it even more awesome is how unexpected it is. Throughout his time on Koon's team, Dan and Rachel have had little moments together that have hinted that Dan might feel sympathy for her and might not be so willing to betray her. After FUG's plans to kill Koon come to light and Dan is at the mercy of Apple and Micheal (traitors who were paid to infiltrate Koon's team for FUG), Rachel asks them to spare Dan since he hasn't done anything wrong. After all, he was originally kidnapped by Koon and forced onto the team. Dan's response to her next question shows just how awesome he is though. Especially considering he doesn't necessarily do it out of loyalty towards Koon. He refuses Rachel because her behavior, along with Apple and Micheal's, disgusts him.
Rachel: Mr. Dan, let's climb the tower together. From now on, please become my legs.
Dan: If you want to walk, walk with those fine legs of yours. You kicked away two friends with those legs, am I right?
