The further along that I get in the Gundam 00 series, the more I find myself losing interest in it. The first season opened well but once they introduced the Thrones and changed things up a bit there, it started to fall apart for me. The second season moved everything forward a few years and brought in a bunch of new characters while tweaking the setting a bit, but that just added to the disinterest because it increased the disconnect with things. And the further in we get and the more new characters are introduced, the less it appeals. While having enjoyed many different Gundam series over the years, this is the first one that I can think of that really just isn't working for me.
This set of episodes adds more of the general buildup aspect of the season as we see more of what the Innovators are doing, particularly during and after a party in which Tiera dolls himself up real well and plays the role of a girl so he can get closer to everything. The Innovators cast seemingly grows with a variety of people with unusual names taken from English in order to sound exotic and standout, but none of them have had any real depth if they've been introduced previously and little is added here to the newer ones. Tiera's doing what he can to learn the truth of what happened with Aeolia's plan and the basic reveal is that everything the Meisters were doing was right but that the Thrones upended it all with a false program. So with the Meisters out of the way, the Innovators started in on their own plans for what's likely just complete domination.
