Title: Return to Eternity Return to Eternity Return to Forever
An alert tone beeps and Heero looks up at the approaching Wing Zero.
Heero: Itís here. It's here. It's here.
Heero flies the shuttle to meet up with Wing Zero, still encased it its protective wings. Heero abandons the shuttle and falls through space, landing and rolling down the surface of his Gundam until he manages to catch and hold on to the surface.
Interior of Wing Zero: Heero, having shed his spacesuit, powers up his Gundam, disengages the propulsion unit, and Wing Zero emerges from its protective canopy and heads towards Earth.
Earth, Brussels, Presidential Residence: Relena looks to the sky.
Relena: Heero... Heero... Heero...
The building shudders and begins to descend into the ground as Relena watches the passage of metal walls as they slide past her window. The entire building is lowered into the ground on a platform supported by six massive hydraulic columns, and a number of metal panels slide over the space above the building, securing it from attack.
Int. Brussels Presidential Residence control center.
MM Soldier: Closing Gate 1, closing Gate 2. Closing Gates 3 and 4. Closing Gates 5 and 6. Brussels Presidential Residence blockade complete! Closing Gate 1, closing Gate 2. Closing Gates 3 and 4. Closing Gates 5 and 6. Brussels Presidential Residence blockade complete! Gate 1 closed. Gate 2 closed. Gates 3 and 4 closed. Gates 5 and 6 closed. Brussels Presidential Palace, closure is complete.
Int. Brussels Presidential Residence control center. In the room with Relena.
Mariemaia: My castle is now completely protected. Donít you find it strange? Why should a shelter such as this be necessary in such a peaceful world with no weapons? History is much like an endless waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever. However, history will change upon the day of my coronation. The instant this year comes to an end, I will be on the top of the Earth Sphere, and the dawn of a new age will arrive. I will rule the world. My castle is now completely protected. Don't you find it strange? Why should a shelter such as this be necessary in a peaceful world with no weapons? History is much like an endless waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever. However, history will change with my coronation. The instant the year After Colony 196 ends, I will be on top of the Earth Sphere. And a new age will arrive. Now my castle is ready. Don't you think it's strange that you'd need a shelter like this in a peaceful world with no weapons? You could say history is like an endless waltz. The three measures of war, peace and revolution continue in an endless cycle. But with my coronation, history will change. After Colony year 196. By the end of this year, I will be the most prominent figure in the United World Nation. A new era will begin.
Altron is floating in space above Earth, Wufei sleeps in the cockpit.
Flashback to Colony A--at the L5 point, home of the Long Clan. Wufei is arguing with the Clan elders.
Wufei: Youíre dropping this colony onto Earth?! Youíre nuts! I will be piloting Nataku to get rid of the evils of the universe!! You're dropping this colony onto Earth?! Youíre nuts! Iím piloting Nataku to wipe out the evils of the universe!! You're going to drop this colony on Earth?! You can't be serious! The reason I use Nataku is to defeat the evil in this world!
Clan Member 1: The Alliance has already decided to dispose of this colony. The Alliance has already decided to dispose of this colonyÖ The Federation has notified us of this colony's disposal. 
Clan Member 2: Rather than watch as it gets destroyed, it would be more worthwhile to go ahead with Operation Meteor. It would be better to go ahead with Operation Meteor. Rather than being silently disposed of, it would be of better use in Operation Meteor.
Wufei: All we need to do is to defeat the enemies that must be defeated! Argh! All we need to do is defeat the necessary enemies! There won't be a problem if we defeat the enemy!
Wufei runs from the room and is next seen powering up Shenlong.
Wufei: Iíll will rid the Earth of all evil, once and for all! I'll destroy all the evil, fair and square! I'll defeat evil on an equal footing!
Flashback ends, and Wufei awakes to the sight of the approaching Wing Zero.
Wufei: *to self* There he is. He's here.  He's here.
Altron launches itself towards Wing Zero and attacks the other Gundam.
Wufei: I will not allow you to go to Earth! I wonít let you go to Earth! I can't let you reach Earth!
Heero: Is this what you interpret as justice? Is this what you interpret as justice? Is this your version of justice?
Wufei: I need to determine for myself whether or not peace at the expense of lives can really be defined as peace! And I will become evil itself to find out! Humanity did not change. Although all enemies were defeated, Earth did not change one bit! I need to determine myself whether or not peace at the expense of peopleís lives can be defined as peace! And I will become evil itself to find out! Humanity didnít change. All enemies were defeated, but Earth didn't change one bit! I just want to know if peace built on sacrifice is truly just? For that, I will become evil. Earth hasn't changed. Defeating the enemy didn't change Earth at all!
Wufei continues to fight Heero above Earth's atmosphere.
A holding cell on X18999, Duo is lying on his side, hands cuffed together in front of him, he reaches into the hair behind his ear and retrieves a small black object (presumably a small explosive charge).
Duo: Let's seeÖ Quatre should be here shortly... Well, now. Quatre should be here any time. Well, I suppose it's about time for Quatre to arrive.
Ext. Holding cell. An explosion is heard from within the cell.
Soldier 1: Huh? What the...? What the...?
Soldier 2: What the...? Here I come! Here I come!
Duo kicks the cell door on top of the two guards stationed outside of it, and runs for the shuttle bay.
Alarms sound and MMA fires at Duo as he sprints across the shuttle bay and leaps up into the waiting shuttle.
Duo: Yeee ha!    
Duo enters the cockpit and finds Trowa sitting at the controls.
Duo: Hey! You couldíve at least come to help me! Thereís nothing wrong with helping out a friend in need now, is there? Hey, You couldíve at least come to help me! Thereís nothing wrong with helping out a friend in need. That was so kind of you. I don't think it would've hurt to have come and helped me.
Trowa: I wasnít waiting for you; I've been waiting here for someone else. I wasn't waiting for you. But for someone else. I wasn't waiting for you. It's the other one.
Duo: Huh? Huh? Huh?
Sally walks up to the control bridge of the shuttle where Trowa and Duo are waiting.
Sally: Sorry to keep you!. All hostages have been rescued! Sorry to keep you!. All hostages on this colony have been rescued! Thanks for waiting. All the colony's hostages have been rescued.
Trowa: Okay, letís go. Okay, Letís go. Then we'll leave.
Duo: Oh, I see. So this is who you meant. I see. So this is what you meant. Okay, okay, I get the point.
Sally: Well thank you, Duo. You were kind enough to leave me plenty of good treats. Thank you, Duo. You were kind enough to leave me plenty of good treats. Thanks, Duo. You left some cake for us.
Duo: If youíre joking, thatís cruel. But if youíre being sarcastic, thatís even worse! If youíre joking, thatís cruel. But if youíre being sarcastic, thatís even worse! If that was a joke, it sucked. But if you were being sarcastic, it was even worse.
The shuttle launches towards Earth as MM's soldiers draw back from the exhaust of the engines.
Wufei and Heero continue to attack each other with their Gundams.
Heero: The more you fight, the more sacrifice for peace becomes a waste. You must have realized that. The war we fought is over! The more you fight, the more sacrifices for peace become a waste. You mustíve realized that. The war we fought is over! The more you fight, the more the sacrifices for this peace are wasted. You should know that. Our war is over.
Wufei: So are you saying that soldiers who know nothing but how to fight get discarded? So we don't need warriors? Do soldiers who know nothing but battle get tossed aside? So that's why you don't need warriors? You're just going to disregard the soldiers who lived only to fight?
Heero: Soldiers have fought to attain a sense of peace! Believe in the world we live in today! Soldiers have fought to attain a sense of peace! Believe in the world we live in! Didn't the soldiers fight for peace? Try to believe in the world around us now!
Wufei: Iím acting for the people who were used as weapons! Iím fighting on behalf of all soldiers, including yourself! Iím acting for the people who were used as weapons! I'm fighting for all soldiers, including you! I speak for all the soldiers who were used as weapons! I'm fighting for every soldier, including you!
The fight continues, even as the two mobile suits begin to fall through Earth's atmosphere.
Heero: Ah, Wufei. Wufei. Wufei...
Wufei: Right now you and I are fighting like this. Isn't it true that you feel fulfilled as I do, whenever youíre engaged in a fight? You and I are fighting like this. Donít you feel fulfilled as I do, when youíre fighting? You and I are fighting! Aren't we fulfilled only when we fight?!
Heero: Huh?    
Wufei: You and I are the same! We are only able to acknowledge our existence in the battlefield! You and I are the same! We can only acknowledge our existence on the battlefield! You and I are the same! We can only find the meaning of our existence on the battlefield!
Heero: Just remember, Wufei, Treize is dead! You have already defeated him! Just remember, Wufei, Treize is dead! Wufei, Treize is no longer here! You defeated him!
Wufei: Youíre wrong! I still continue to fight him, even now! You're wrong! I still fight him, even now! You're wrong! I'm still fighting him!
On Earth in the city Brussels outside of the Presidential Residence: Zechs, in the Tallgeese III, and Noin, in the white Taurus mobile suit, fight against the Serpent mobile suits of Mariemaia's Army.
Noin: Zechs. The Brussels Presidential Residence is shield protected! We canít even get to it! Zechs. The Brussels Presidential Residence is shielded! We canít get to it! Zechs, Brussels Presidential Palace has set up its shelter shield. It's impossible to break though.
Zechs: I realize that! But unless I do what I can, there's no one who is going to stand against them! I realize that! But unless I do what I can, no one will stand against them! I know it's impossible, but if we don't do it, no one will stand up to her.
Noin: Who are you waiting for? Who are you waiting for? Who are you waiting for?
Zechs: For those who hope for peace. If people allow Mariemaia to do as she wishes, theyíll end up giving birth to a second Milliardo Peacecraft. Noin, you really donít have to stick around with me. For those who hope for peace. If people allow Mariemaia to do as she wishes, theyíll create a second Milliardo Peacecraft. Noin. You don't have to stick by me. The people who want peace. If Earth is going over to Mariemaia, another Milliard Peacecraft will be born! Noin, you don't have to put up with me.
Noin: Zechs, I told you a year ago that I will never leave your side. Iíve waited all of this time and I simply can't wait any longer. Zechs. I told you a year ago that I would never leave your side. I've waited all this time. I donít want to wait any more. No. I told you a year ago. I won't leave your side. I've been waiting so long, I'm not going to wait anymore.
Zechs: Understood. Understood. Alright.
Wing Zero and Altron successfully penetrate the atmosphere, and Wing Zero opens its wings to slow its rate of descent, as Altron releases and then quickly discards a parachute before re-engaging in combat with Wing Zero.
Wufei: I do not accept to Relena Peacecraftís ways. Her belief that peace is attained by throwing away weapons and confining soldiers is wrong! I do not consent to Relena Peacecraftís ways. Her belief that peace comes from discarding weapons and confining soldiers is wrong! I don't approve of Relena Peacecraft. It's wrong to think you can achieve peace by just throwing away the weapons and locking up the soldiers.
Heero: So thatís why youíre allowing Mariemaiaís autocracy?! So thatís why youíre allowing Mariemaiaís autocracy?! Is that why we should allow Mariemaia to be a dictator?
Wufei: Thatís where the souls of those who fight gather! Thatís where the souls of the soldiers are congregated! It will be something for the soldiers to go by and....
Heero: That may be okay for now, but Mariemaia will end up repeating history! The history full of miserable battles. Unless we stop this process now, more soldiers like ourselves will become necessary. If that happens, history will continue to repeat itself. Wufei, tell me. How many more people must we kill? That may be okay for now. But Mariemaia will end up repeating history. A history full of miserable wars. Unless we stop this process now, more soldiers like ourselves will become necessary. If that happens, a history of tragedy will keep repeating itself. Wufei, tell me. How many more people must we kill? That may be fine for now, but she's only repeating history. The sad and miserable history of war! If we don't stop it now, they'll need soldiers like us again! The tragedy called history will just be repeated. Wufei, tell me. How many more people do we have to kill?
Heero has brief flashback visions of the time when he accidentally caused the death of the young girl and her puppy.
Heero: How many more times must I kill that girl and her dog? How many more times must I kill that girl and her dog? How many more times do I have to kill that girl and her puppy...?
Wing Zero is now sparking with damage about the head, and Heero, sitting slack in the control chair, suddenly disengages from combat with Wufei and drops Wing Zero into the ocean below.
Wufei: Huh?    
Heero: Zero will not tell me anything. Tell me, Wufei! Zero wonít tell me anything. Tell me, Wufei! Zero never gave me an answer. Tell me, Wufei.
Wufei has brief flashback visions of the time when his colony self-destructed, and then drops altitude until Altron hovers over the place where Wing Zero dropped below the water.
Wufei: Would an incident like that have to be repeated again? Would an event like that have to be repeated? Are you telling me that everything is going to be repeated?
Ext. Space. In the resource satellite that stored the four Gundams, now smaller and pitted with damage and positioned above Earth. Sandrock, Deathscythe, and Heavyarms are all activated and awaiting the descent to Earth.
Quatre: Are you both ready to go? Are you both ready to go? Are you both ready?
Duo: Yeah, any time you are! Yeah, any time you are! Yeah, any time!
Trowa: This is what Operation Meteor should be. This is what Operation Meteor should be. This is how Operation Meteor should have been carried out.
Quatre: Letís go now! Let's go! Let's go!
Sandrock slices open with bay door with two strikes of its shotels and the three Gundams fly through the atmosphere and towards Brussels.
Int. In the control center of the Presidential Residence: a dozen soldiers of MMA are sitting at control consoles, presided over by Dekim, Mariemaia, and Relena.
Soldier: Tallgeese and Taurus are now past our Point D Number 3 defenses! Tallgeese and Taurus are past our Point D number 3 defenses! Tallgeese and Taurus have passed defense line 3, point D!
Dekim: What can they do with only two suits? Send our counterattack troops to Point D! What can they do with only two suits?! Send our remaining assault troops to point D! What can those two do? Send a combat unit in that area to point D!
Soldier: Yes, Sir! Yes, Sir! Roger.
Mariemaia: It's beginning to look like a sibling reunion will be next to impossible this time. Looks like a sibling reunion will be difficult this time. What a shame. I don't think you'll be able to meet your brother.
Ext. Estate house. A television broadcast of the mobile suit battle taking place in Brussels.
Dekim: We are facing fools that are hopelessly retaliating against the new order. Consider how much meaning the lives that are likely to be lost will have. We are facing fools that are hopelessly rebelling against the new order. Consider the significance of the lives that will be lost There are fools who still resist our newly found law and order. You must all think of the true meaning of the blood that is going to be spilled.
Int. Estate house. A little girl sits next to her grandfather and clutches a teddy bear to her chest as they watch the broadcast together.
Little Girl: Grandpa. I thought there weren't going to be any more wars? Grandpa. I thought there wouldnít be any more wars. Grandpa, I thought we weren't going to fight anymore.
Grandfather: I know. That's right. That's right.
Little Girl: Then why are those people still having a war? Then why are those people still having a war? Then why are those people fighting?
Grandfather: Unfortunately, dear, not everybody in this world is as reasonable as you are. [thinks] But in fact, the people are too reasonable. There are too few people who will retaliate against Mariemaia. Unfortunately, not everyone in the world is as sensible as you. But in fact, people are too sensible. Too few people are retaliating against Mariemaia. The world isn't made of good, understanding girls like you. But the public is too understanding. There are far too few people who will stand up to Mariemaia.
In a control room with many video monitors and a number of MMA soldiers dispatched and unconscious on the floor (perhaps the television broadcasting station?).
Lady Une: Does she believe this is Treizeís ideal? She doesnít realize sheís merely a puppet controlled by Dekim. Does she believe this is Treize's ideal? She doesnít realize sheís merely Dekimís puppet. This is Treize's ideal? They don't even realize that Dekim is manipulating them.
On the streets of Brussels, Zechs and Noin continue to fight against the Serpent troops of MMA. They are pressed back by the sheer number of Serpent suits.
The Tallgeese III leaps over a Serpent mobile suit, and then drops behind it, impaling it on a beam sword.
Serpent Pilot: Huh?    
The Tallgeese and the white Taurus continue to take damage from the overwhelming number of Serpent mobile suits.
Zechs: We've reached our limit. This is it. I...Is this it...?
Noin: Iím not saying any good-byes yet, Zechs! I'm not saying any good-byes yet, Zechs! I'm not saying goodbye, Zechs!
Zechs: Of course not, Noin! Of course not! Naturally!
The front line of Serpents suddenly drops to the groundÖ
Zechs: Huh?    
Öand Gundam Sandrock is revealed, shotels extended.
Quatre: Iím glad we werenít too late. Iím glad we werenít too late. Looks like we've arrived in time.
Noin: Quatre! Quatre?! Quatre!
Sandrock cuts more Serpents apart, and the pilots from MMA scramble from the wreckage of their mobile suits. Quatre slides his goggles up to rest on his forehead and addresses Zechs and Noin.
Quatre: You two are truly impressive. Youíve fought this many without killing one soldier. You two are truly impressive. Youíve fought this many without killing one soldier. You two are amazing. All this fighting and not a single soldier killed.
Noin: Iíd be glad even if we could teach these people something. Iíd be glad if we could teach these people something. I'm glad that we can be an example for you.
One of the Serpent mobile suits looks up at the sky, and sees Deathscythe Hell silhouetted against the full moon. Deathscythe lands, and neatly slices off the head components of the three nearest Serpent mobile suits.
Duo: Letís only take the weapons and war itself along with us to hell! Letís take the weapons and war itself with us to hell! Let's make it so the only thing we're taking to hell are the weapons of war!
Heavyarms makes its entrance into the melee with an acrobatic leap into a group of Serpent mobile suits, and then opens fire, leveling MMAs.
Trowa: Around two hundred and fifty left. Thatís fifty suits each. If we're just getting rid of the mobile suits, I'm sure we'll be able to manage it. About two hundred and fifty left. That's fifty suits each. If thatís all, then we should be able to manage. Two hundred and fifty left. That's fifty each. If thatís all the Mobile Suits, we should make it.
A crowd of people stand in an open city plaza, all looking up at an aerial view of the mobile suit fight within the city of Brussels, close-up views of the Gundams are presented as well.
People: [many sounds of surprise] Gundams?! Gundams!
From the control room of the Presidential Residence, Relena and Mariemaia sit in two chairs positioned on a dais at the back of the room; Dekim and the monitoring stations take up the center portion of the area, and a view of the mobile suit battle is displayed on the main video monitor in the front of the room.
Dekim: How much longer do those kids intend to retaliate against me? How much longer will those punks retaliate against me?! Those brats! How long do they plan to resist?
Mariemaia: Even if they did destroy the mobile suits, thereís no way they can break through this shelter. What theyíre doing is meaningless. Even if they did destroy the Mobile Suits, thereís no way they can break into this shelter. What theyíre doing is meaningless. Even if they destroy the Mobile Suits, they can't reach this shelter. Their resistance is futile.
Relena slowly begins to stand up.
Relena: HmmÖ Iíve been running. Iíve beenÖ I...
Mariemaia: Whatís the matter, Miss Relena? Whatís wrong, Relena? What is it, Miss Relena?
Relena continues to stand as she watches the video monitor in the front of the room.
Relena: Iíve beenÖ Iíve been running from the truth. Iíve beenÖ Iíve been running away from the truth. I... I was running away.
Mariemaia: Huh?    
Relena leaves her position next to Mariemaia and runs over to one of the work stations. She shoves the MMA soldier out of the way and seizes control of the microphone.
MMA Communications Officer: Huh?    
The street battle in Brussels worsens as the Serpent troops bring in heavier artillery, and the Gundams begin to take on some surface damage. Duo cuts a Serpent in half with Deathscythe's beam scytheÖ
Duo: Ee-yah!    
Zechs: Gundam pilots, you've done enough now! You must leave us and get out immediately! Gundam pilots, that's enough! Leave us and retreat. Gundam pilots, that's enough. Leave us, and retreat.
Quatre: What? Get out? If we were fighting to kill, we would be done long ago. Retreat?! If we were fighting to kill, weíd be done long ago. Re...retreat... If this was a battle to take lives, it would have ended long ago.
Sandrock loses the use of one of its shotels and steps back from the ongoing fire of the Serpent mobile suits.
Quatre: But, if we did, then there'd be no meaning at all in our coming back here! But then coming back here would be meaningless! But that would've defeated the point of us coming.
Noin: But at this rate, youíd die in vain! At this rate, youíd die in vain! But if you stay, you'll die for nothing.
Duo: If weíd planned on retreating, we'd have been gone. Though, I know itíll be tough to continue fighting. If weíd planned on retreating, we would've been gone. I know itíll be tough to keep fighting, though. If we were gonna retreat, we would've been on the run from the start. But this's a bit ridiculous going on like this.
Trowa: We used to be just like them, Duo. They've been coaxed by Dekim into believing that their only purpose in this life is to fight battles. We used to be just like them. Dekim coaxed them into believing their reason for living is to fight. They are the way we used to be. Dekim is manipulating their purpose in life.
Noin flies above the street in her Aries, and fires down from above.
Noin: But you'll die! But...! But...!
Duo: Hey, donít worry about it. Weíre gotten pretty good at these losing battles! Hey, donít worry about it. We're gotten pretty good at these losing battles! Don't let it bother you. We're used to having our asses kicked all the time.
Deathscythe flies at yet another Serpent mobile suit, and Sandrock fights on, now with only a section of one shotel left.
Quatre: And thatís the reason why we've always been able to remain as ourselves. Thatís why we could always be true to ourselves. And that's why we can be who we are.
Int. Control room of the presidential estate. Relena stands and addresses Dekim and, at his side, Mariemaia.
Relena: The reason I returned to being a Darlian was not to take revenge for my father. Nothing can be accomplished with revenge. Hatred will only result in bringing more hatred! I didnít go back to being Darlian to get revenge for my father. Nothing can be achieved through revenge. Hatred will only result in breeding more hatred! I did not return to being Darlian for my father's revenge. Nothing comes from revenge. Hatred will only create more hatred.
Mariemaia: You think that way now because you lost your battle. But my thoughts are different. I will truly be victorious. You only think that way because you lost your battle. But Iím different. I will truly be victorious. That is because you lost. But I am different. I will be the victor.
Soldier: The Gundams have all stopped fighting. The Gundams have all stopped fighting. The Gundams have ceased fire.
Mariemaia tilts her head at Relena.
Mariemaia: Told ya! Told you. See.
Duo powers off Deathscythe's beam scythe and backs his Gundam into a protective position with Sandrock and Heavyarms; the Gundams are surrounded by Serpent mobile suits. Tallgeese III and Noin's white Taurus are positioned back to back near a wall only a short distance away.
Duo: Iíve got nothing left, but our self-detonating devices could take out about half the remaining suits. What do you think? Iíve got nothing left. Self-detonating could take out about half the suits left. What do you think? We're outta ammo. We could clear half of them if we self-destruct. Should we?
Trowa: No. Detonation should be done away from them. We must limit casualties to just ourselves. No. Detonation should be done away from them. Limit the casualties to just ourselves. If you're going to self-destruct, don't take anybody else with you. We're the only ones who should die.
Duo: Yeah, guess youíre right. Guess you're right. Y...you're right.
An alert tone sounds in Quatre's cockpit, quickly followed by responses from the other pilots.
Quatre: Huh? What?! Hey...
Trowa: Where?    
Duo: Above us! Above us! Another enemy?!
Zechs: Wing Zero! Wing Zero! Wing Zero!
Wing Zero, carbon-scored and damaged from the fight with Altron and its subsequent plunge through the Earth's atmosphere, holds position in the sky above Brussels, its massive buster rifle pointed at the Presidential Estate barricade below.
Heero: Locked onto the target! Locked onto target!. Target, locked on.
Int. Control room of the presidential estate. In the control center, alerts sound.
Soldier: Another Gundam confirmed, sir! It's in the sky! Another Gundam confirmed! Another Gundam has appeared above us!
Dekim: What?! What?! What?!
Soldier: Mr. Dekim! Weíre online with one of the Gundam pilots! Mr. Dekim! Weíre online with one of the Gundam pilots! Sir, there's a transmission from the Gundam pilot!
Heero's image comes up on the main monitor screen.
Relena: Heero! Heero! Heero.
Heero: Let me confirm. Your shelter shield is activated? Let me confirm. Your shelter shieldís activated? Confirm that your shelter shields are up.
Dekim: What are you planning? What are you planning? What are you...?
Heero: Your shelter secure, is it? Is your shield activated? Are your shields perfect?
Mariemaia: Of course it is. See for yourself just how powerless you are! Of course it is. Admit to yourselves just how powerless you are! Of course. Now you shall learn how small you are!
Heero: Roger that. Roger. Roger.
Mariemaia: Huh?    
Heero fires upon the shield, and the power of the blast destroys all of the Serpent mobile suits on the surface and cracks the shield plate. The force of the blast causes the control room to shudder.
Dekim: Gather all the Serpents here! Shoot down Wing Zero! Gather all the Serpents here! Shoot down Wing Zero! Assemble Serpent Unit! Bring Wing Zero down!
Mariemaia: Wh.. what a miserable person. HeísÖ He's not going to be able to achieve anything. What a miserable person. Heís not going to prove anything. H...he's such a wretched man. It's a w...waste of time d...doing such a thing...
Relena: Are you afraid, Mariemaia? Are you afraid, Mariemaia? Are you scared, Mariemaia?
Mariemaia: Humph.    
Heero fires upon the shield a second time, but Wing Zero begins to break apart under the strain. Flame bursts from the verneirs, armor falls from the torso of the suit, electrical shorts spark within the cockpit, and the left arm of the mobile suit breaks free.
Dekim: Thatís impossible! How could this be happening? Thatís impossible! How could this be happening? Impossible, how could this...?
Soldier: The shield has lost half its strength! Wing Zeroís aim is accurate to one-hundredth of a unit! This shelter will collapse for certain it itís hit again in the same place! The shieldís lost half its strength! Wing Zero's aim is accurate to one-hundredth of a unit! This shelter will collapse it itís hit again in the same place! Shield defense is down by half. Wing Zero's aim is accurate by point 2 decimals. If he hits the same place again, the shelter will collapse!
Dekim: [addressing Heero] Stop it! Don't you realize that Relena Peacecraft is in here! Stop it! Relena Peacecraft is in here! Stop! Relena Peacecraft is here, too!
Heero: Hmmm.    
Heero lowers the beam rifle only slightly.
Relena: Heero. Hmm. Heero. Heero.
Mariemaia: Huh?    
Serpent mobile suits take flight and fire upon Wing Zero.
Heero has a brief flashback to the little girl and her puppy, and the girl handing him the yellow flower. Heero leans forward, ignores the attacking Serpent mobile suits, and takes aim on the shield once more. He fires, and this time Wing Zero breaks up and flames and smoke exhausts into the cockpit.
The other Gundam pilots, Zechs and Noin all look up at the explosion.
Quatre: Heero! Heero! Heero!
Others: [gasps]    
Wing Zero's final shot breaks through the protective shield, and the control center bursts into flames as well. Lady Une runs in from the back of the control room and tackles both Relena and Mariemaia to the ground.
Lady Une: Are you okay? Are you okay? Are you alright?
Mariemaia: Yeah. Who are you? Who are you? You're...?
Lady Une: Even though you may be mistaken, I personally cannot allow His Excellency Treize's daughter to die. Even though you may be mistaken, I canít allow the daughter of His Excellency, Treize, to die. Even if you're in the wrong, I cannot let Treize's daughter die.
Mariemaia: Huh?    
Soldier: Another Gundam has arrived. This time at the Number Four defense line at Point E! Mr. Dekim! Another Gundam has arrived at defense line number 4 point E! AlsoÖ Lord Dekim, there's another Gundam on defense line 4, point E and also...
Brussels: Altron stands in the center of a city square with many people standing at the feet of the mobile suit. Serpent mobile suits stand opposite Altron, and the people stand between Altron and the Serpents, shouting.
Man: There is no way we would obey you! There is no way weíd obey you! We're not listening to you anymore!
Man 2: We donít want any more battles! We don't want any more wars! We don't want war!
Man 3: We want to protect the peace here all by ourselves! We want to protect the peace here ourselves! We will protect our peace!
From their respective mobile suit cockpitsÖ
Wufei: Battles like these are not decided by the soldiers. Thanks to these people, I can now give up fighting! Battles like these are not decided by soldiers. Thanks to them, I can give up fighting! Battles are not fought by soldiers. At last I can leave the fighting behind me.
Wufei closes his eyes, smiles, and nods to himself.
Wufei: This, Treize, is my goodbye. This is goodbye, Treize. Farewell, Treize.
Noin: Oh, Zechs. Zechs. Zechs...
Zechs: This is good. We donít have to abandon all hope just yet. This is good. We donít have to abandon hope just yet. This way...this way, I won't have to give up hope again.
Trowa: The detonating device missed its chance again. The detonating device missed its chance again. The self-destruct was wasted again.
Dekim watches the video monitor in disbelief.
Dekim: Who the hell are those people? Who the hell are they...?! What are they...?!
Lady Une: While His Excellency fought losing battles, he loved people who werenít afraid keep their stance and fight, and that is why the people are so able to accept the Gundams. It is not the victor that moves the heart of the people. While His Excellency fought losing battles, he truly loved people who werenít afraid to fight. And that is why people can accept the Gundams. It's not the heart of the victor that moves the heart of the people. Treize loved people with the will and determination to fight, even in bad times. And that is why people will accept the Gundams. It's not the victor who moves the people.
Wing Zero crashes to the ground, the access hatch opens with an explosive charge, and Heero falls from the cockpit and stumbles to his feet.
In the control center, Dekim continues to watch the video monitor.
Dekim: This is insane! We can not be defeated! We, the Barton Family, are the true rulers of the Earth Sphere! Miss Mariemaia! Assume your position as head of the Earth Sphere! This is crazy! We can not be defeated! We, the Barton Family, are the true rulers of the Earth Sphere! Miss Mariemaia! Assume your position as head of the Earth Sphere! Ridiculous! We know no defeat! The Barton Family is the true conqueror of the world! Please, Mariemaia, now is the time to stand at the head of the Nation!
In a daze, Mariemaia stumbles towards Dekim.
Mariemaia: I amÖ victorious... Iím carrying out the will of my fatherÖ I amÖ victorious... Iím carrying out my fatherís desiresÖ I am the victor... I will fulfill my father's will...
Lady Une walks around to step in front of Mariemaia and raises her hand as if to slap Mariemaia across the face.
Lady Une: Hmm. Do forgive me. Forgive me! Forgive me.
Relena steps in front of Lady Une, and strikes Mariemaia across her face.
Mariemaia: Huh?    
Relena: Excuse me, but itís about time you opened your eyes, Mariemaia. Excuse me. But it's time you opened your eyes, Mariemaia. Excuse me, but it's time you realized, Mariemaia.
Mariemaia: Huh? Miss Relena... Relena... Miss Relena...
Relena: You have now learned what real fear is. So I am sure you are now able to acknowledge all the mistakes you have made in the past. You have learned what real fear is. So Iím sure you can see all the mistakes youíve made. Now you understand fear. You should be able to accept your own mistakes.
Dekim: Stop right there, Relena Peacecraft. *Dekim points a gun at Relena* I canít allow you to brainwash my Mariemaia with such garbage! Stop right there, Relena Peacecraft. I canít allow you to brainwash my Mariemaia with such trash! That's enough, Relena Peacecraft. I wish you wouldn't put ideas into my Mariemaia's head.
Relena: If you wish to shoot me, go right ahead! I am prepared to die! If you wish to shoot me, go right ahead! Iím prepared to die! Shoot if you wish. I am resolved.
Dekim: Then Iíll tell you what the truth is before you die. The public is always expected to obey the victor! Then I'll tell you the truth before you die. The public must obey the victor! I'll tell you the truth before you die. People are there to follow the victor.
Dekim fires his gun at Relena. Mariemaia pushes Relena out of the way and runs directly into Dekim's bullet, she stumbles and falls to the ground as Dekim and the surrounding soldiers gasp in horror.
Relena: Mariemaia! Mariemaia! Mariemaia!
Relena runs to the aid of Mariemaia as the pool of blood under the young girl spreads.
Dekim: We can always create a replacement for Mariemaia! I made her after all! We can always create a replacement for Mariemaia! I made her after all! I can replace Mariemaia easily. Even she's the one that I...
Dekim takes aim at Relena again.
Lady Une: Dekim! Dekim! Dekim!
Lady Une shouts out at Dekim, and draws her sidearm, taking aim. A shot is fired, and Dekim falls to the ground, bleeding and gasping. A soldier of Mariemaia's Army stands to the side, holding a pistol and shaking slightly.
Soldier: I have executed the rebel, Dekim. I express my apologies for betraying His Excellency. Iíve executed the rebel. I express my apologies for betraying His Excellency, Treize. I...I have executed the traitor. We wish to atone for our betrayal of His Excellency Treize by this.
The soldier salutes, and the remaining soldiers follow his lead. Relena and Une both kneel at the side of Mariemaia. Relena holds her and settles the girl onto Une's lap for support and talks to her.
Relena: Mariemaia, hold on! Mariemaia, hold on! Mariemaia, hold on.
Mariemaia: Relena, I was mistaken. Iím so sorry. Relena, I was mistaken. Iím sorry. I was wrong... I...I'm sorry...
Relena: Mariemaia. Mariemaia. Mariemaia.
Heero: Iíll relieve you of your pain. I'll put you out of your misery. I'll put you to rest.
Heero speaks from the dark corner of the room, and Relena turns around, surprised, and sees Heero holding a gun, which is pointed a Mariemaia.
Relena: Huh? Heero. Heero. Heero.
Mariemaia: I thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Heero fires an empty gun at Mariemaia, symbolically killing her and her past. Mariemaia closes her eyes and smiles.
Heero: Iíve killed Mariemaia. I willÖ never killÖ anyone ever again. I've killed Mariemaia. I...I will never kill again. I've killed Mariemaia. I...I won't kill anyone, anymore...
Heero shifts his grip on the gun, his arm collapses, he drops the gun, and stumbles forward.
Heero: I donít have to any more. I don't have to kill any more. I d...don't have to kill...
Relena: Oh! HeeroÖ Heero! Heero!
Relena leaves Mariemaia in Une's care and runs to catch an unconscious and falling Heero, she grabs him around his waist as he collapses, and they fall to the ground together, and she eases him so his head is resting on her chest.
Relena: Oh, Heero. HeeroÖ Heero.
Lady Une is holding Mariemaia, and she calls out to the soldiers in the room.
Lady Une: We can still save her! Take her to the doctor! There's still hope for her! Take her to the doctor! There's still hope! Get her to the medical room quickly!
Soldier: Yes, maíam! Yes, ma'am! Yes, ma'am!
Relena strokes Heero's hair and closes her eyes.
Relena: Oh, finally, itís over. Finally, itís over. It's finally over...
Heero mumbles something and moves his head closer.
Relena: Hmmm.    
Relena continues to stroke Heero's hair, soothing him.
Exterior of the city plaza with a large number of people gathered around the feet of the mobile suits, Serpent and Altron alike. Mariemaia's soldiers descend from their Serpents and discard their rank and insignia in a pile on the ground, shedding their uniform hats and armbands along with their armaments, which they then burn in a bonfire as the people watch and Wufei looks on from his vantage point in Altron.
Dawn breaks across the skyline of the city, revealing the profiles of Deathscythe, Heavyarms and Sandrock. Duo is standing on a grassy hill, detonator in hand and looking at the Gundams.
Duo: Well, itís goodbye for real, buddy. This time itís goodbye for real, buddy. This time, it is the end, partner.
He depresses the plunger on the detonator, and the three mobile suits glow red about their seams before dissolving within a bright arc of light. The scene turns to the right, and Trowa, Duo and Quatre are seen standing on a rocky hillside, surrounded by trees and blue sky.
Trowa: Iíve once again become nameless. I've become nameless again. I'm back to being nameless.
Quatre: [turns to look at Trowa and offers] Trowa sounds fine to me. Why not keep it, Trowa? Trowa sounds fine to me. Why not keep it, Trowa? I don't think it makes a difference. Trowa is Trowa.
Duo: Names are things other people give ya. There's no point wasting time worrying. Whatís important is that we have a place we can call home, right? Names are give to you by others. No point wasting time worrying about it. Whatís important is having a place we can call home. Right? Names are for other people to call you. It's no use trying to change that. Anyway, we've got someplace to go home to, right?
Trowa: Yeah, youíre right, Duo. Yeah, you're right. You're right.
In a river valley deep in the mist-filled mountains of China, Gundam Altron explodes in a burst of white light as Wufei watches from a stone outcropping.
Wufei: Nataku, may you rest in peace. Nataku, may you rest in peace. Nataku, rest in peace.
He turns and Sally is standing behind him, dressed in a Preventers uniform.
Sally: Wufei. It seems Noin and Zechs have disappeared somewhere. So, whatta you say? Do you wanna come work and with me? Wufei. Noin and Zechs have disappeared somewhere. What do you say? Wanna come work with me? Wufei. Noin and Zechs have disappeared somewhere. How about it? You want to work with me?
Wufei: Do you mean, work as a Preventer? Hmm, why not? As a Preventer? Why not? A Preventer, eh...? Sounds good.
Above Earth's atmosphere in a small silver spacecraft.
Noin: Are you sure? The Terraforming Project hasnít even officially started yet. Are you sure? The Terra Formation Project hasnít officially started yet. Are you sure? Terraforming still isn't in the operational stage.
Zechs: It's something Relena is working on, and it wonít be easy. Thatís why a dead person would be perfect for the job. Noin, are you sure you... Relena is working on it, and it wonít be easy. That's why a dead person would be perfect for the job. Noin, are you sure you... It's something Relena wants to do. It's bound to be rash. That's why someone who's already dead has to do it. Noin, you don't have to...
Noin: Zechs, please donít make me repeat myself, again. Don't make me repeat myself, Zechs. Don't make me repeat myself, Zechs.
Against a background of stars.

Song (Lyrics):   I feel love, reflection
The reflection of your eyes looking at me
Is etched in my mind as an everlasting
Never-ending story
Beating these wings with all my might
To shake off all sadness, shake off all pain
These wings will always be spread across my heart
These wings that I received from you
As painful as it may be and as upset as I may get
I hope to keep feeling this precious love beating
I feel love, reflection
We'll have many passionate dreams together
Unafraid to make mistakes We'll look to each other
I feel love, reflection
The refection of your eyes looking at me
Is etched in my mind as an everlasting
Never-ending story
 
While the ending song plays, scenes continue from the end of the OVAÖ
Lady Une, dressed in civilian clothing, pushes a wheelchair-bound Mariemaia through a sunny ocean-side graveyard. They stop and look at Treize's grave.

Duo sits on top of a pile of scrap metal in a colony scrap yard. Hilde runs to him, and hands him a clipboard and he stands and smiles.

Trowa walks through a colony street with a rucksack over his shoulder. He approaches the circus tent, and Cathy steps out to greet him.

A scene shows the exterior of the ship carrying Quatre and the Maganac crew. It then shows the crew celebrating and laughing in the cabin, with the Maganacs standing around Quatre.

Also in space, Sally Po sits at the controls of a Preventer's shuttle, while Wufei sits at another control port and works at one of the computer stations.

Relena gives a speech to a large assembly in a formal auditorium. Heero, dressed in casual clothing, watches her from one of the balconies in the room. He disappears soon after a close-up view of Relena.

Heero reappears for the closing credits, walking against a background of stars with his jacket slung over his shoulder.
