The Archangel decides to go back to Orb. No one on board appreciated being used as an unwilling sacrifice by the Earth Forces.
Meanwhile, ZAFT and the Earth Forces duke it out in Panama. ZAFT uses a bomb that disables their electricity. Earth Forces surrender but ZAFT doesn’t stop shooting.
At the very end, Mu and Kira are at Morgenroete so that Mu can practice using the Strike because Kira isn’t using it.
