Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Episode 4 preview and spoilers
The plot of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Episode 4 is not known at this moment. In this section, we are, thus, going to bring you a recap of the latest episode so that you can roughly know what to expect from the plot in Episode 4:
In the distant future, humanity develops GUND technology, which allows humans to directly connect their brains to machines to control them, and revolutionizes prosthetics. However, GUND technology is also weaponized and fitted into special mobile suits called “Gundams”, which is a controversial move as humans struggle to deal with the mental strain of controlling it, leading to crippling injuries and even death.
The Ochs Earth Company is secretly contracted to support Gundam Lfrith in a project led by Dr. To Build Cardo Nabo, who believes Lfrith will be the next step in GUND’s development that will allow humanity to expand into space. However, Lfrith’s test pilot, Elnora Samaya, has not yet been able to activate Lfrith.
Meanwhile, Ochs Earth’s sponsor, the Mobile Suit Development Council, decides to withdraw its support for the project and instead create a regulatory body called Cathedra to suppress Gundam development. Cathedra leader Delling Rembran authorizes a military attack on the Ochs Earth research station, which holds Lfrith.
Nabo and most of the staff are killed in the fighting while Elnora and her daughter Ericht take refuge in Lfrith. Elnora is shocked when Lfrith activates in response to Ericht’s biosign and the infant Ericht unknowingly orders Lfrith to destroy several mobile Cathendra suits. Ericht’s father, Nadim, then sacrifices himself to buy Elnora and Ericht time to flee the area, while Rembran gives a speech declaring that Cathedra will destroy all Gundams.
