- —Legendary Comics
After falling unconscious in the previous issue, Duc and Kaori Jessop awaken to find the Kaiju Itak continuing it's assault on the Tacit Ronin. Attempting to counter the blows, they fall into the Drift and begin to relive their memories; from their first encounter to their first drift.
As Kaori reawakens, she hears LOCCENT ordering her and Duc to eject as the Jaeger's systems become critical. Disobeying orders, she and Duc instead attack the Kaiju from behind, cutting it in half. As Kaori celebrates their victory, she turns and sees Duc has once more fallen unconscious.
