Plot Summary

Aftermath (Part Two)

Following the ambush by Giovanni Capello's men, only Joshua Griffin, Verma, and Pena survive the gunfight, and are barely able to escape with the plasma capacitor or their lives.

Griffin brushes him off and gives the plasma capacitor to Chris Dubango, who intends to complete the construction of Enforcer, a Rogue Jaeger built for Mech Czar's protection.

Mech Czar demands an explaination for what happened at the Santa Monica Scrapyard when her headquarters is bombed by Giovanni's men, with Giovanni leading the attack. Griffin, Pena, Chris, and Czar head for the workshop where Griffin decides to pilot Bruiser against the advisement of Chris. Griffin struggles to control the Rogue Jeager as he begins his attack on Giovanni's men.
