The Catch-Up: Plot

 In what was the third most epic episode of the series (in my opinion) many amazing things happened. As if it wasn't enough combine the Gurren Lagann with Genome's Arc ship (a ship like... 50x the size size of GL respectively,) we also find out that the moon intself is a giant Gunmen. If THAT wasn't enough... the Gurren Lagann then combines with, and becomes a gunmen the size of the moon. Whoa...
 
Also, Rossiu is still a douche
 

Today's Episode:

Rossiu episode! Well, sort of. This episode is all about the cooldown from yesterday, and the build up to the final struggle. Four more episodes! Hopefully Rossiu will get what's coming to him.

My favourite episode of the whole series and not a single comment! I am totally the only one who likes Rossiu aren't I?

I wouldn't say you are the only one. Mathematically there's probably at least 2 or 3 other people like you.

@AmandaBee: You know, I really enjoyed him for the first half, but the second half rossiu... for being sooooo rational, he makes terrible decisions. Simon is, without a doubt, humanity's greatest weapon, and in the face of unstoppable enemy... why would you discard that?
 
I'll give in that he was a more efficent leader (much more than the others from team dai-gurren), and often did what had to be done, but... Beyond his treachery (which I can get past) I just can't justify his decisions.

@John_Martone: I agree. I liked the brainwashed and innocent Rossiu more than the backstabbing, mopey Rossiu. If I was Simon though I'd still want him on my team. He's smart and a good leader, his personality is just unpleasant.
