* The entire climax of the episode is this combined with [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesomeness]]. Hiro rushes into the battlefield on a training unit and, even when it gets destroyed, he refuses to back down because he ''needs'' Zero Two. Once he's in Strelizia with Goro and Ichigo's help, his mind connects with Zero Two's again and he finally understands her, allowing him to wake her from her berserk state.

* The prayer chain the children start back on Earth to send strenght to Hiro, who's being consumed by the Franxx. He hears them talk about how hard they're working, how he and Zero Two taught them what living means, and Zero Two tells him he's the one that changed everything from the beginning. [[TrueCompanions When he wanted to stay together with everyone]], [[RescueRomance when he decided to save her]], [[{{Determinator}} when he went for the things he desired]]. To her, first and foremost, he embodied everything a human should aspire to be, so bright to her eyes with his tears and empathy and affection. They met by chance and attracted each other naturally, bound together forever by a kiss. The things he's always fought for have become everyone's battle to win.

Added DiffLines:

* The sprout that grew from the ashes of Zero Two's body grew up into a huge Sakura tree that survives the ages and became a beacon which beckoned the souls of Hiro and Zero Two back to Earth. It subsequently became the place where their reincarnated selves would be reunited.


** Look closely at the bracelet that the reincarnated Zero Two wears. The design it was based on is the same as the drawing of Zero Two on the wall of the Mistilteinn boarding house.



** That's when Hiro gains his strenght back. He and Zero Two kiss, become one, and the true embodiment of the Jian. And VIRM is done for.

** The last page of the picture book is filled in by Squad 13, in memory of Hiro and Zero Two and the sacrifice they made to ensure a happy ending for everyone else. So that they can be together forever and future generations will know their story.
* The Klaxosaurs return to Earth and fuse with it, bringing life back to the dying planet. In return, humans refuse to exploit magma energy from then on and turn to renewable energy as a sign of respect.

** The picture Squad 13 took back in Episode 18 is proudly displayed inside Strelizia's cockpit.




to:

--> '''Hiro''': We'll probably vanish soon. But the path we walked will never fade, because the other will take it even further.
--> '''Zero Two''': It doesn't matter how long it takes. [[OneTrueLove If we have souls, I swear I'll meet you again on Earth.]]
--> '''Hiro''': I love you, Zero Two.
--> '''Zero Two''': I feel the same. I love you, too, darling.
** Back then, Hiro had the candies and Zero Two had the book. When they meet again, it's the opposite.

** Miku and Zorome, [[LikeAnOldMArriedCouple still as feisty as ever]], become teachers for the younger generations.
** Ikuno has dedicated her life to finding a cure to the rapid aging the Parasites go through, and ''she succeeded'' even if it meant shortening her own lifespan. And she seems to have gotten [[ShipTease a whole lot closer to Naomi too...]]
** Goro and Ichigo are together and expecting their first child.
** Mitsuru and Kokoro have a pack of kids with a fourth on the way. Their first child is named "Ai", which means "love", a word whose meaning was taught to them by Hiro and Zero Two.
** Futoshi became a baker and his bread is loved by every single kid around. Also, he's a proud father of (soon to be) three.
** This closing narration, dedicated by the members of the team to their missing friends:

--> '''Futoshi''': ... enjoy every experience.
--> '''Ikuno''': Fight when you have to.

--> '''Kokoro''': Try and get to know another person better.
--> '''Mitsuru''': Choose your destiny with your own hands.
--> '''Goro''': Be honest with your feelings.
--> '''Ichigo''': And be someone's wings. In that sense I know that you two were more human than anybody else.

[[AC: Episode 24]]
* Hiro's and Zero Two's final moments. Even though they were about to die, they knew that this wasn't the end for them and no matter how long it took, they will meet again. And they do in the epilogue in which they are reunited as kids.

Added DiffLines:

[[AC: Episode 23]]
* Our [[OfficialCOuple official couples]] both give us reasons to cry this episode:
** Mitsuru swears to remain by Kokoro and their baby's side, because even if he doesn't remember everything and feels like a weakling, he knows he can be stronger if he's with her. He kept their rings and insists on saying her name because it's too important for him to hold on to those fragments of memories to simply let her go.
** Hiro, thanks to Alpha's help, gets to Strelizia and connects with Zero Two's trapped soul. She left Earth and him behind because she didn't want to force Hiro into becoming a Klaxosaur with her. She just wanted him to remain with Squad 13 and live his life at the cost of hers, but Hiro points out that if she really desired to be alone she wouldn't have left that last page of the picture book to him. He refuses his humanity and vows to be by her side forever, [[CallBack to never let her go.]] This triggers Strelizia Apus' true transformation, a giant mech with Zero Two's features and protected by an armour that takes the shape of a wedding dress.
** Zero Two appears in her subconscious as her younger self, scared and alone. Hiro? He's his crudely drawn prince from the picture book.
*** The smile on Zero Two's face back on Earth when Hiro makes his vow.
* Ichigo makes Hiro and Zero Two promise they'll return, no matter how long it will take. Zero Two can only tearfully smile and tell her she's bossy as usual.

Added DiffLines:

** Hiro finally outs his own saurification in this moment, when his horns and eyes start glowing blue when he talks about his promise to Zero Two. The others gasp in shock... and then don't even mention it. [[MilhollandRelationshipMoment It doesn't change their view of him one bit.]]
