I'm sorry Saji. You went to the trouble of buying these for me. And they are so beautiful . . . but I can't wear this ring.

Like the other Gundam-series in general, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is about war and terrorism. While this series also killed several characters including the most popular and the very minor ones, almost all the characters suffer many unfortunate things. These events can cause them to suffer numerous traumas or at worse, a tragic death.


    General 

  • The whole point that kick-started the entire plot. On one hand, we see great countries continue to thrive marvelously even after fossil fuels became scarce, but then there's the utter hellhole like Krugis, Setsuna's birthplace, so wrecked by war and now assimilated into Azadistan... Given that the show ran in 2007 when The War of Terror was still strong in a lot of people's memories, it makes the series even more tragic.
    • Setsuna (who used to be known as Soran Ebrahim)was already being trained to be a killer since childhood. Setsuna used to be a Child Soldier who was trained by Ali Al-Saachez in KPSA. Where he was also being brainwashed to kill his own parents as part of their graduation to become a full-length "warrior" who will "fight for name of God". In truth, Ali also didn't believe in God and was only using them as the tool for causing a mass terrorism in world. This event left behind so much scars for Setsuna, refusing to acknowledge his old-self and the existence of God.
  • Neil and Lyle Dylandy both come from a happy and perfect family. However, due to Neil being depicted as the more gifted one, Lyle suffered an inferiority complex and disliked being compared to his perfect brother. To overcome this, Lyle decided to run away. Ever since then, Neil and Lyle had little chance to reunite, and Lyle didn’t know the tragic fate of his older brother and his involvement to Celestial Being.
    • Imagine being in Lyle Dylandy's place. Lyle watched his whole family taken away by world's conflict, and later ended up hired by an organization that, in a sense, killed his only brother as well. Feldt's advances on him seems less like a typical relationship problem and more of an insult on a personal level.
    • Then you have Neil. Imagine ended up witnessing your entire family killed, with your very own eyes, by terrorists when you just wanted to spend your time with them that day at the mall. You may wonder how hard his life was after his family's death. Even after all that, Neil continues to work hard and even sent money to his younger brother Lyle for his education and future.
  • Allelujah Haptism used to be a normal, ordinary boy until he was kidnapped by the HRL scientists to become a test subject of the HRL's Super Soldier program, which led to him being brainwashed. He was then only known by his code number as ‘’E-0057’’, but was later given a name by Marie Parfacy, as 'Allelujah' as a blessing for life to God. Unfortunately, Allelujah was deemed as one of the experimental failures and was to be disposed. So, he and the other failed test subjects decided to escape and he was forced to leave Marie behind due to her requiring special medical care. Though they managed to escape by stealing a space shuttle, their shuttle ran low on all possible resources to keep them surviving after drifting aimlessly for days. As a result, Hallelujah emerged and began killing all of his ‘’brothers’’, leaving him the only survivor. With this incident, it left a huge scar for Allelujah.
    • In the prequel novel, it was revealed that Allelujah lived alone and continued to hide from the HRL soldiers, before being recruited by Celestial Being due to him being a Super Soldier. Have you realized Allelujah is the only Meisters who rarely hold a gun other than during his childhood? Some fans speculated Allelujah might be traumatized to ever hold a handgun due to what happened at his childhood.
  • Even Tieria Erde also has this too. Sure, he was a jerk throughout Season 1 due to his superiority complex but he never expected that he was from a race who are against Celestial Being. The prequel novel mentioned that Tieria was born around 2302 AD and was intended to become one of the next Meisters. It’s also Veda's intention to not put his Innovade memory in order to not destroy the harmony between the members of Celestial Being. After Regene Regetta told him of their origin, Tieria suffered a massive identity crisis to stay loyal with Celestial Being or pull a Face–Heel Turn to side with his race. Luckily, his friendship and compassion towards humans drove him to remain loyal to Celestial Being.
    • As part of a living data of Veda, Tieria now has no age limit. Which means he's now immortal as long as Veda is saved. Even though Setsuna became part of a Half-Human Hybrid of Innovator-ELS who's also immortal, they will unable to see their friends along with Allelujah and Lyle since they're still human and will eventually pass away from aging.
  • Of course, even minor characters suffered a lot as this is a tradition in the Gundam series.
    • Pictured on the right: Although Louise was a very unpopular character, the scene where Saji visited her in hospital and gave her the ring that he had been saving up to buy for her, and she started crying and saying she couldn't wear it, and revealed that she'd lost her left hand in the attack that killed her family. And she ended up lending support to A-Laws, becoming one of its soldiers all for the sake of revenge against Celestial Being in season 2. At worse cases, she became Ribbons' personal puppet only to use her for money to fund the A-Laws and Innovator technology development. And Ribbons paid back by giving her special medication formulated by the Innovators, which led to her to become some kind of a "pseudo-Innovator". Imagine how shocking it is when the Trans-Am Raiser is activated for the first time, revealing that she and her lover Saji are fighting on opposite sides.
      • With this, you can see why she's Not So Different from what happened to Neil and Lyle. While Lyle was able to move on from tragedy, Neil and Louise ended up being a broken person, trapped in their past and became a person who thirst for revenge. Louise was, luckily, able to be saved, Neil however...He died.
    • Same with Louise, Saji and his sister, Kinue are unpopular characters. However, after the unfortunate events that caused Kinue’s death and Louise deciding to break up with him for his dream after all of her family members are killed, Saji is now alone and blames Celestial Being for making him and Louise suffer.
  • Even the Azadistan's princess Marina Ismail has to struggle with being Actual Pacifist in a world where action speaks louder than words. She expresses confusion and distress over the conducts of Celestial Being, and all her efforts to achieve true peace ends up literally burned to the ground in season 2.
  • It's so sad to see how Feldt has no idea what causes her parents is killed. In prequel novel titled Mobile Suit Gundam 00P , her parents was the 2nd generation of Gundam Meisters and their name is Ruido Resonance and Marlene Vlady. They are killed in Plutone Accident during their mission. Due to Celestial Being rule of secrecy, their death causes never be told to Feldt, but she just know that her parents already die when she still a baby.
  • Sure both Trinity siblings and The Innovators are Celestial Being enemies who already causes havoc and destruction in the world. However, being Innovade and half-Innovade, they shown to be caring to each other.Once they see their comrade (or "siblings" for the Innovade who share same DNA pattern) is killed, they will vowed to seek a revenge for them. Proved that even though Innovade are Artificial Human that only born for fight and served a task from Veda, they still have warmed and caring sides. Ribbons are the exception at this since he was a Complete Monster who disgust with any aspect of humanity and lacking of empathy. So, Ribbons only see both the Trinity and the member of Innovator as nothing but a expendable tools that can be replaced.
    • Anew Returner is the perfect example of the biggest The Woobie from Innovator. She was designed to be a sleeper agents to know the secret of Celestial Being activity, and never intend to known about trust, relationship and love. Her relationship with Innovator members is unknown, but Revive Revival, her twin brother supposedly doesn't like her due to being born as woman which lead her blinded by her human woman emotion.
    • Nena's fate throughout the series can be seen as disturbing, to say the least. She blew up the wedding because she's annoyed by seeing people happy when she's tired from "work" (shooting at soldiers, munition workers and the like). Eventually, it was revealed that, instead of being the people that can change the world, their actual "work" was to be shot at as part of Ribbons's plan to accumulate hate against Celestial Being, and allowing for him to deploy the GN-Xs and the Innovades. Because the Trinities had little support from the crew of the Ptolemy and used interior machines, if one of them was killed, they wouldn't be able to fend for themselves as their tactics relied heavily on co-op skills. With some luck, they survived several contacts with the GN-Xs, so Ribbons had to dispose of them through both Ali and by taking advantage of Louise's mental instability and thirst for revenge. She's pretty much an ill-treated Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds.
      • As are her brothers for that matter. Especially sad is Johann's reaction when he sees Micheal shot dead by Ali. And then the words he says just as he's about to die, and the utterly broken way he says it...
      • Special mention goes to Nena, whose psychopathic tendencies result from her spending her first 10 years in stasis. Thus, despite being physically 17 years old, she possesses the mentality of a little girl. While it might not justify some of her actions, it would account for why she acts in such a fashion.

    Season 1 
Episode 5
  • Mixed with Nightmare Fuel due to True Pillar Incident that accidentally caused by Soma Peries, Kinue expression after known that Saji and Louise are part of the people who evacuated from the pillars is very heart breaking reminder that Saji is the only remaining of her family members.

And the man who come at the grave, wondering about the flower is absolutely his twin brothers (who his name still not revealed). It's mean that he is not the only survivor of bombing accident at AEU Ireland many years ago.
  • While it's a heartwarming scene to see Louise's mother come to see her daughter at episode 9, please noted she come to Japan is not only visited her. Due to the True Pillar Incident and car bomb terror that happened near to her and Saji, Louise's mother wanted to drag Louise back to Spain for her safety.
  • While it's also can count as heartwarming, Lockon interaction to Feldt also sad. It's turn out that Feldt parents used to be a Meister who already die for unknown reason since Feldt didn't know the cause why they die due to their death as "part of Celestial Being secret". Lockon tell to her that she is strong girl due to she follow their footstep to become part of member of Celestial Being. In turn, he tell to her about his tragic past and his real name, Neil Dylandy.

    " Why ? Why is it, Hallelujah ? Why do wanna kill people so much? Is that my true nature?If so, that mean that I'm. . . A COLD-BLOODED BEAST ! "

And then he asks Sumeragi for a drink.
Episode 18
  • The Moral Event Horizon scene of Nena Trinity, where she blast the beam at a wedding party of Louise's cousin at Spain is the most painful moment in this series. One thing that you need to remember that Louise is Ordinary High-School Student has no any connection with military, which mean she is a normal civilian who come from very rich family. And she ended forced to see her entire family killed by her with unknown reason by Nena.

This message ultimately become Harsher in Hindsight about their fate in season 2.
  • Kinue's death at the hands of Ali, followed by poor Saji being called in to identify his sister's body (which happens before the opening credits begin!) or him speaking with Kinue's boss, who feels guilty because he didn't do anything to stop her from pursuing such dangerous work. And as a result, the last person imaginable to be anywhere involved in Celestial Being's war still ended up getting roped into it.

  • After their Gundams are mysteriously disabled from Veda, this is leaving Tieria in confusion and wondering why Veda dare to do this. This situation become great chance to Patrick to attack Tieria, but ended with Lockon pull his sacrifices to shield him from Patrick/GNX attack, resulting him suffer a fatal injury.

Episode 22
  • The scenes is starts from Lockon, who now in medical bay. Dr.Moreno suggests that he must have two weeks in medication pods to heal all his wound, especially his right eyes. However, Lockon refuse to do the treatment because he feels that he only become the burden if he ended at medical bay, and believe that in critical situation, he can't use this time peacefully to heal his wound. In addition of his words, he also feel bad to Tieria too, who still sad because he feel that Lockon's injured was part of his fatal flaw.
  • This is first time Tieria finally seen to blame himself instead of he angry at Lockon or with someone like what he do as usual. He feel become so useless if he and Celestial Being do operation without Veda.
  • Johann and Micheal's death. Again, at the hands of Ali. Sure they are not very nice people, but see their reaction after Alimercilessly attack them is very painful. Johann statement is shown that they are nothing but part of Child Soldier, who only exists to be "meisters", do a tasked by someone and ended being killed in battle by the enemies.
    " This can't be. We were meant to do this. We were born to be Gundam Meisters. This is what we lived for. . . "
Episode 23
  • After what already happened to Lockon in two previous episode, Tieria only able to lock him at his room because he feel that this is the only way to protect him. Unfortunately, this attempt was failed because Lockon succeed to escape from ptolemy and rushes to battlefield. All ptolemy crew and the other Meisters worry about him, but he only can said that he will follow Sumeragi directions and go back safely. Sumeragi can't help but trusting Setsuna to hurry and save Lockon before late.
  • Lockon finally succeed to avenge his family death, but he didn't shown his happiness after he succeed to do it. Lockon feels so empty because he unable to move on from the tragedy and he is nothing but a poor man who unable to accept the tragic fate of his family and ended become a man who thirst of revenge. He realized he can't bring back his family.
    • He remember the moment when he celebrate Christmas around with his family, and it quickly shift to the moment where he see the ruin of the place where his parents and his sisters become one of KPSA victims. You may wonder if this tragedy was happen at next day after the Christmas, this is so painful to watch it.

  • This episode ends extremely tragically when Lockon Stratos, the series' resident badass is killed in battle, sending the remnants of his Gundam and his Haro, which was pleading for Lockon's life the entire time, back to the main ship. Who'd ever think that a constant Say My Name could be so depressing? It's all made even worse when you consider that Lockon had survived a perilous situation within the previous two episodes (albeit with eye damage); no one expected Sunrise to let him survive that, only to kill him off so soon afterwards.
    • and his final word
      "You people down there... are you satisfied with the way the world is? As for me... I hate it."
Episode 24

In Prequel Novel, it shown that Ian and Moreno are best friends for long time also they are used to be ever worked with Feldt's deceased parents in krung thep.
    " Dammit ! Why did you have to go off and die, idiot "
  • The 00 writers outdid themselves in this episode, with Lichtendahl attempting a Heroic Sacrifice to save Christina... but it doesn't work, since not only is she fatally injured as well, but the Ptolemy bridge explodes right after that, completely erasing any chance of survival. Honestly, that episode becomes a sobfest just four minutes in, what with Haro going "Feldt, I'm sorry; Feldt, I'm sorry," and a grieving Feldt tearfully saying that it needn't apologize because what happened to Lockon wasn't its fault.
Episode 25
  • Soma refuse to finish off Allelujah and choose to save Sergei due to his injury. Sergei initially refuse to helped by her, but Soma unable to do it and choose to save him because she didn't want to be alone again. Seeing her expression is very heartbreaking because you can see, Soma still able to shown her emotion and sadness beside being perfect Super Soldier, who only exist for fight. Soma is not a emotionless-being, she still a human.
  • Allelujah reaction after known Soma was the person who being called Marie is very painful. It considers that they used to be known each other when he still at facility. However, Hallelujah choose to didn't tell to him about her identity because it will make Allelujah lose his interest to fight and will be killed. After finishing his word, in ended with that he will "go first" and close his eyes. Surprised, Allelujah realized he unable to feel his existence again, and driving alone and helplessly in space with his injury. And ended being captured by Federation.
    • In the epilogue of the novelization version of season 1, it's stated that the Federation (especially A-Laws) treats Allelujah very inhumanely, subjecting him to horrible interrogations and tormenting him because he never answered their questions about the Celestial Being. Allelujah remained strong and never gave up protecting his comrades by refusing to answer any of their questions.
  • Tieria, seemingly near death, ejecting the GN drive from the destroyed Nadleeh and saying that he can finally reunite with Lockon.
  • Setsuna's letter to Marina :
    Marina... Ismail... By the time you read this... I'll already be gone. Armed Interventions to put an end to war... I'm unable to do anything but fight for Celestial Being... You taught me what it means to fight. Back then, just like Gundam. I wanted to know.. Why our world is so terminally distorted? Where did this distortion come from? Why are there people who are unconsciously evil? Why do they not realize that their evil hurts others? Why is humanity an existence that only conflicts with itself? Why are there people to rule, and those who are ruled? Why do we wound each other? In spite of all this, why do people go on living like they do? I wanted to ask you. Please think of an answer, if we may meet again. That being the case, I will seek out the same thing on a different path than yours. Down the path towards mutual human understanding for the answer. I'll keep looking for it, together with my Gundam. Together with... My Gundam.
  • Sumeragi turn out runaway from Celestial Being, knowing that she already causes their loses at Operation of Fallen Angels and blame herself for causing Lockon, Christina, Lichty and Dr.Moreno death's, Allelujah and Setsuna confirmed M.I.A. They only able to recover Tieria. After knowing Sumeragi is left, Tieria along with Feldt, Ian and Lasse decide to recover their loses, and keep going to focus to develop new technology for fight and change the future, especially the development of 00 Gundam.
  • It's turn out that ALI AL-SAACHEZ IS SURVIVE FROM LOCKON ATTACK. Means that the revenge that Lockon do to his family and his sacrifice are means completely so empty. Poor Neil. . .
  • Reenacted in Super Robot Wars Z2: Hakai-Hen and it will occur no matter what.

  • The result of Celestial Being lose 4 years ago in Operation of Fallen Angels finally also impact to the world. Now, there is a fascist group named A-Laws. A secret military that believed to be federation loyal lapdog which have a order to killing and capture anyone who refuse the world unification. The peace that already promised by federation is never happen in 4 years after their victory, but the world ended being controlled by The Innovator and Ribbons Almark, who become shadow dictator of the world. They not only using Veda to control media and the technology, but also the current federation president are nothing but Puppet King.
  • We finally can see Louise. Err. . . seeing her ended become a military soldier is very unexpected. Because we already see this poor girl already so broken and traumatized in hospital in last episode. And we see her now as A-Laws soldier, because of her family fortune and her connection with the Innovators. Her reason is one: She wanted to avenge her family death and punishing everyone who refuse a unification for peaces.
  • Louise unable to make her condition as stable as possible. She even pant so heavily after successfully killing one of Katharon member. It become worse when her Trauma Button is pressed when she see Exia, and suffer a headache. As the result, Louise take some medicine to calmed her anxiety and this is also make Barrack Zinin questioned why A-Laws accept a weaklings like Louise at A-Laws.
  • We finally can see Sumeragi. She's spend four years drinking alcohol and living with Billy, who still unable to move on from their loses.
  • Saji ended being captured only because he asking why his work-mate is captured, mistake him as part of the rebels and being forced to work as a labor.
  • Saji reunion with Setsuna is very heartbreaking. He never expected that the neighbor that he know to be so quiet are the member of Celestial Being. A organization that he believe responsible to make him and Louise suffering. Saji ended up crying and wanted to shoot Setsuna, but he can't do it because he believe he will ended become as bad as them if he shoot Setsuna, and later Tieria bring him to empty room.
  • And we finally see Allelujah. Judging from Allelujah's condition after he was imprisoned by the Federation, you can clearly see that he received horrible Cruel Mercy from them, such as placing him in isolation, binding him to a metal chair in a straitjacket with a muzzle covering his mouth. He has Exhausted Eye Bags, probably a sign of his unhealthy living conditions or his lack of sleep since it's very difficult to have to sleep in a sitting position for OVER FOUR YEARS. This makes fans wonder what the Federation did to him when he was still in prison.
Episode 2
  • We see Setsuna finally meet Lyle Dylandy, Neil's twin brother. Setsuna recruit him to continue Neil's legacy as Lockon Stratos . Lyle didn't know the tragic fate of his brother, and after Setsuna told to him that he already died four years ago, Lyle unable to believe that the only family member that he has already go without his knowledge.
  • It's turn out that Sergei initially refuse to let Soma involve with A-Laws with whatever reason. After Kati know that Soma finally join A-Laws after Andrei pick her from their house, Kati confess her confusion of Sergei statement about the reason why he never let Soma join A-Laws.
  • It's shown that Billy has great concern over Sumeragi (or more known as Leesa) health due to she already drinking too much. When they see Setsuna come to his apartment and inform to Billy that Sumeragi is part of the member of organization that he hate so much due to he believe already cause his mentor death, he ended so broken.
  • Sumeragi confess all her regret and confusion about her failure. She feel if they try to rebuild the crew and once again fight for future, their sacrifice will become so meaningless. She try hard to run away from any responsibility because she fear that she will cause another problem that will happen to them. This why Sumeragi spend her time by drinking alcohol, because she can't cope her grief and she didn't even tell to the other about her problems.
  • Marina was captured by the federation due to her past involvement with Celestial Being. This poor woman never involve herself or her country to ally with Celestial Being beside they ever save their Imam from Ali. Because of this, she was forced to imprisoned in same prison where Allelujah is placed.
  • The reaction of every Ptolemy crew after see Lyle Dylandy. They are so surprised and thinking that Lyle is the same previous Lockon Stratos (a.k.a Neil Dylandy) who already killed four years ago. Even Haro thinking same things with the other's. It's hard to believe that current Lockon is different person.
    " Lockon, You're alive! Lockon, You're alive! "
  • And the last scene we see Allelujah again, who still Bound and Gagged in isolated prison, is sleeping. He begin slowly open his eyes and mention "Marie" in his mind before the cliffhanger of the episode.
Episode 3
  • Allelujah forced to wake up by Soma Peries to start his last interrogation section. He so glad that he finally can meet her and calling her "Marie". Soma is surprised, and Allelujah tell to her that they used to be a friend when he still at HRL super soldier facility. And Soma furiously tell to him that her name is not Marie, leaving him under confusion. No longer after she leaved, Allelujah realized that the scientist already change her personality with new personality that they named her as "Soma Peries", which resulting why she can't remember him.
  • Sumeragi still insecure if they able to save Allelujah from prison. Even though all crew put their trust to create the strategy to save him, she still scared if her strategy will be failed. Thanks to Setsuna statement that if they failed, they will never blame her and keep their mind to save him until they success. So they can start the operation with Gundam for once again, which leading Sumeragi finally giving them a strategy to save Allelujah in 3 minutes.
  • Allelujah almost successfully to make Soma remember her real name and her past, by calling her true fullname Marie Parfacy. Soma is surprised and flashed a brief flashback of herself as a child talk to someone, resulting she suffer a headache. Allelujah wanted to bring her, but he has no choice to leave her alone with Andrei due they has no time to save her as Setsuna instruct to him. Allelujah promised to her that he will return to save her without fail.
  • Setsuna finally got the information that Marina is imprisoned in the same facility with Allelujah. He wanted to the other meisters to give him a extra minute to save her too. After their operation is successful, Setsuna apologize to Marina that their involvement to save Azadistan's Imam can cause her get into the trouble. Marina, being Actual Pacifist, still unable to understand why Setsuna still fighting with Gundam even though he already explain that it was the only way to change the future, and Marina begin crying.
Episode 4
  • The intro to episode 4 of season two. The flashback shows the first time Allelujah finds Marie as a child as well as the horrible conditions the two had to put up with in the facility. If that wasn't a Tear Jerker already, we then get to see how Allelujah got his name in the first place.
    Allelujah: That was the moment when she baptized me... in the truest sense of the word.
    • This scene was even more of a Tear Jerker in the Special Edition version, where Allelujah remembered this when he was still in prison and his quotes were also slightly changed.
    Allelujah: That's right... as the words are, it has become my baptism. She, what Marie said... makes me the human that I am now.
  • Allelujah come to see Sumeragi tells to her about Marie and his reason to fight. He tell to her that he was being imprisoned, he had no problem with rotting in prison and dying alone because he feel it's the right time to "atone for his sins". However, everything changes after he sees Amnesiac-Marie as Soma Peries at his last interrogation, and decides to save her from the Federation. It becomes his main motivation for wanting to continue to fight. Sumeragi feel jealous over Allelujah due to he has a reason to fight while she is not, but he believe one day she will found it.
    • While this can count as heartwarming, this scene also so sad because we already see three previous episode, Allelujah was placed in isolated prison alone in darkness. He didn't show any trauma while he indeed confess his depression that he has no mind if he will dying alone in prison. However, he still able to cheer-up Sumeragi beside everything what already happen to him.
  • Marina finally make her decision to return to Azadistan. She wanted Setsuna to help her to rebuild her country where everyone can leave peacefully without any conflict and tell to him that fighting will never bring any good resolve to peace. Setsuna with expression known Marina was right, but he can't help but refuse her offer. He tell to her that he used to think a same way with her before he become Meisters. However, due to many conflict that involve in entire world and him ever being used to be a child soldier who saved by Gundam, he fully believe that fighting with is the only the best way to stop the conflict.
Episode 5
  • Setsuna reaction after see a refuge children from Katharon. Being Shell-Shocked Veteran Child Soldier who trained to be terrorist, Setsuna thinking the Katharon also do the same thing too. Luckily, they are not do that because they just save the children who separated from their parents.
    "Don't tell me. Are you raising these children to be member of Katharon ?
  • Kati suspicious over A-Laws activity become true. When Commander Katagiri order her to do a operation at Katharon Base, she absolutely surprised and unhappy with their order to do a massacre at their base, even though they are the rebels. She even said that this order is very barbaric.
  • Soma finally see the true dark-side of A-Laws. Since it's first time she was assigned to mission to destroy Katharon base instead of capture or defeat Gundam, you clearly can see Soma first time to seen so surprised and terrified, completely silence after see A-Laws brutality. Sure, they are the people who against federation, but just because they against them it doesn't mean they deserve to be killed in brutal way.
    • Her statement about her doubt about her purpose to life is very heartbreaking. Again, she is Super Soldier, only exists to be military instrument. However, Soma is not completely Emotionless Girl, she still capable to shown her emotion such as sadness, anger and joy. Soma wanted to feel the happiness like normal people, but she feel that is disgrace her status as Super Soldier and her peaceful and a normal life with Sergei should never happen to her and believe her involvement with A-Laws as part of punishment.
    "I'am Super Soldier. I only exists to fight. And yet I tried to find the happiness that normal people take for granted. Colonel. . .is this a punishment for wanting that. . .? "
  • Marina finally come to see her country. Unfortunately. . . she was welcomed by Ali who burned Azadistan with disturbing expression before closing the episode.
