After waking up naked in an unfamiliar bed, Jin slowly remembers what had happened earlier. Back then, Toa had told him that she’d be waiting at the lighthouse, and she had proceeded to disappear. Sieglinde arrived by car with her butler soon after, and he had knocked Jin out. The room he’s now in is locked, so Jin looks around and notices a camera in the corner. Talking to the camera, Jin demands to be let out and questions where he is, and a girl’s voice answers back that this is the ISDA. Sieglinde tells him that they want to talk to him about the shuttle accident from two years ago, and she walks into his room soon after. Jin, however, accidentally lets the sheet that he was using to cover himself slip off and exposes himself to her, prompting her to call him a tiny man. Elsewhere on the base, Kazuki is introducing himself to his now humanoid-looking Dragon that’s still in a test tube and has named it “Gio” because of its code number G10.
With some clothes on now, Jin arrives at the ISDA control room where Beisel Sakaki informs him that the shuttle accident was not due to a mistake on his father’s part. Instead, it has to do with Thanatos, which had caused Pluto’s demise 20 years ago and is now sitting in the old Pluto’s orbit. Beisel is sure that Thanatos will come towards Earth eventually and claims that the omens have already started. Revealing a large tube behind him, Beisel explains that the thing that caused the shuttle accident two year ago was an extraterrestrial life that came from Thanatos – what they call a Dragon. This gets Jin angry because there was never any official announcement about it, and that’s led to his dead father being treated like a criminal ever since the incident. He wants them to prove his father innocent, but the ISDA’s Laina Cromwell comes in at that moment to say that they can’t. He asks Jin to think about what would happen if they made an announcement about extraterrestrial life being responsible.
Before Jin can protest further, Beisel declares that Dragonauts are the only power mankind has against Thanatos. He feels that if Jin hates Thanatos for taking away his family, then Jin should become a Dragonaut. Jin, however, only cares about clearing his father’s name, and he tries to leave, but Sieglinde reminds him that he’s got nowhere to go back to. They are interrupted when Kazuki arrives in the command room, and he and Jin immediately recognize each other. The two are then driven to some ISDA lodgings, and along the way, Kazuki expresses how happy he is to see Jin again. He still remembers their promise to go to space together someday, and because of this, he doesn’t understand why Jin turned down the offer to become a Dragonaut. When Jin asks, Kazuki admits that he had known about Jin’s father not being the cause of the shuttle accident, though he had only found out after he became a Dragonaut.
Back at the ISDA, Laina questions if Beisel really intends for Jin to become a Dragonaut, so Beisel reveals that he thinks that Jin will definitely come in contact with the Album again. When that time comes, he wants them to go all out to secure her. Meanwhile, Jin is getting angry remembering everything Beisel told him, and he suddenly recalls that Toa said she’d be waiting at the lighthouse. As a result, he runs the entire way there, and, just like she said she’d be, Toa is there. The two of them end up sitting on the shore together watching the sunset, and Jin admits that he doesn’t remember what happened yesterday very well. In response, Toa tell him that he only needs to remember meeting her. Jin then asks her about going to space and seeing the Earth from space, and Toa describes it as beautiful. While they’re holding hands though, Toa uses her mind to destroy the nearby surveillance camera being operated by Sieglinde.
Later that night, Jin and Toa are on the move but have stopped at a vending machine when ISDA troops suddenly surround them. Before they can get captured, Toa takes Jin and jumps away, so Machina of the ISDA tries to stop them with a special ability that allows her to grab Toa’s legs. Toa somehow manages to break free of it and then leaves Jin in the forest while she faces off against the other people with special powers. Jin rushes towards her, but an explosion creates a wall of fire that prevents him from reaching her. Instead, he has to face Kazuki who is now pointing a gun at him. Since they still have their promise of going to space together, Kazuki doesn’t understand why Jin tried to run away, though he also says that he doesn’t want to shoot because they’re best friends. Jin doesn’t feel the same way since he’s being chased and threatened with a gun, and he decides that he’s alone after all.
Although Kazuki isn’t willing to shoot Jin, his comrade Amagi Keiichi smiles and fires off a shot. Luckily for Jin, Toa runs in to take the bullet for him, and she grabs him and leaps away at the same time. Toa quickly heals the wound, and she kisses Jin to tell him that he’s not alone because she’s there too. They’re chased by Howling Star, Machina, and Amadeus, but the fourth person with special powers Spirytus isn’t with them. His partner Amagi is now yelling about wanting to kill more people, and Spirytus soon transforms from himself into the brute and then into a Dragon. The other ISDA members get a message from Kazuki about Spirytus having eaten Amagi, and Laina realizes that without a master, the Dragon will start to run out of control. Spirytus actually seems to be targeting Jin, but Toa gets between them and shields him. This repels Spirytus the first time, and before the Dragon can come at them again, Toa asks Jin to close his eyes. Much to Jin’s shock, she then leaps into the air and transforms into a Dragon.
So if I understand this correctly, then each of the people who have special abilities are Dragons in human form, and each has a master in the ISDA. Based on the pairings shown in the OP/ED and on what we’ve seen so far, Spirytus’ master was Amagi, Howling Star’s is Laina, Machina’s is Akira, Amadeus’ is Sieglinde, Gio’s is going to be Kazuki, and Toa’s master will be Jin. Actually, I’m not so sure Gio is going to obey Kazuki since the OP and ED have made him look pretty independent. The ED pairs Kazuki up with a woman who we haven’t been introduced to yet, so she might be the one who becomes his Dragon.
As for Jin, having a romantic relationship with a Dragon probably won’t end well for him. I can just imagine some final battle where Toa sacrifices herself to protect him, and series would end with Jin saying something along the lines of how he’s realized that he’s not alone after all. It probably won’t be that predictable, but it’s not out of the question. Of course, it’s still way too early in the series to be talking about the end, and we don’t know how Gio will complicate things yet. Next episode should be his introduction.
