This is the best episode of the entire 26-part series, despite the heartbreaking, moving and action-laden first two episodes. It is the best, because it sums up the dilemma of the cyborg-prepubescent girl and her human partner so very, very nicely: What to do (as said girl) when a innocent bystander happens to get in the way of your mission?
