I found this episode a little weird because it shows what Hikaru is dreaming about while he’s unconscious in a hospital bed.
Hikaru in a hospital bed.
Hikaru's dream begins with his trying to save Minmay a few times, but failing.
The dream scenes are just the same sequences from previous episodes, but with different dialog, of course
Nothing like exclaiming his love for Minmay to show us that he really likes her. But Hikaru, you love a fantasy. It isn't real love.
This short scene wasn't from any previous episode. It's a lead-in to re-using sequences from when Hikaru, Max, Hayao, and Misa were aboard Britai's battleship.
In this scene, Britai holds Minmay in the palm of his hand, and Hikaru comes to rescue her
... only Minmay doesn't want Hikaru to save her because Kaifun won't let her date soldiers!
Britai turns into Kaifun
Hikaru says he quit the military, and Kaifun's character melts into the ground. Hikaru then grabs Minmay, and we hear a new Minmay song, "Zero-G Love", which Minmay sings in DYRL when she's with Hikaru in the training valkryie.
And we hear another Minmay song, "Cinderella".
The mock wedding scene when Hikaru and Minmay were trapped by themselves aboard the SDF-1 turns into a short scene where Hikaru and Minmay are dressed in a white tux and wedding dress, respectively. Remember the scene in DYRL where Hikaru and Minmay are in holographic wedding clothes?
Hikaru and Minmay's tiff gets twisted into Hikaru telling Minmay she's fickle
Hikaru finally wakes up from his bad dream
Next episode: “Pineapple Salad”
