Plot Summary

On the 21st June 2016 in Tokyo Bay, Tacit Ronin engages the Kaiju Itak. While lunging at the Kaiju, Tacit is caught and impaled by one of the Kaiju's arms, causing a radiation leak. An attempt to vent the radiation instead disables the Jaeger's electrical systems as the radiation floods into the Conn-Pod. As Tacic Ronin is struck again, Duc Jessop begins to lose consciousness as he recalls how he and Kaori met.

Some time before, Duc is operating aboard an aircraft carrier while Kaori is in a submarine analysing the Breach as a Kaiju emerges. The Kaiju begins to attack the submarine as Kaori insists they wait for the analysis to complete. However, Duc arrives in a PPDC submarine and distracts the Kaiju. They target the submarine's ballast tanks and force it to surface, causing the analysis to fail. Duc's submarine surfaces alongside Kaori's, and they watch as a Jaeger is deployed to fight the Kaiju.

Back in the present, Kaori successfully awakens Duc and they share a kiss before regaining control of the Jaeger. Although they land several hits on the Kaiju, the radition causes both of them to fall unconscious.
