Ange is tied up naked and with a half-naked boy sleeping beside her. They both wake up and Ange tries to scream while and beats up the boy who tries to tell her how they ended up in their current situation. Meanwhile at Arzenal, Jill orders Salia to conduct a search and rescue operation for Ange. Ange manages to escape and heads to the shore where Villkiss in assault mode is docked. She discovers that Hilda's underwear was the reason of Villkiss' malfunction while the boy follows her. Ange and the boy continue their altercation until the boy is tied up and Ange wanders around the forest. As rain falls, Ange seeks shelter but she is bitten by a snake which causes her to become unconscious due to the snake's venom. The boy rescues her by sucking the venom on her left leg and treats her in his hideout. The boy looks after Ange by feeding her and helping her recuperate while repairing the Villkiss which reminds the boy on his youth where his parents died with Jill walking towards them with the Villkiss behind her.
The boy introduces himself as Tusk, but never discloses his true identity as he evades Ange's questions. They spend some quality time together but was interrupted when a fleet carrying a brig-class DRAGON appears above them and a Schooner attacks them from the sea. Ange holds off the Schooner while Tusk rushes to repair the Villkiss. As Ange feels hopeless, the Villkiss, suddenly reacting to the mana in her ring, shoots the Schooner and Ange frantically stabs it to death. At dawn, Ange formally introduces herself to Tusk and the rescue team arrives. Tusk later pays his respects to his fallen comrades and leaves the island piloting a Para-mail.

|“|| Tusk: How could you? I saved your life-
Ange: Come any closer, and I'll shoot.
Tusk: Calm down! I don't intend to hurt you. Besides, you're shooting at me.
Ange: You bound me, stripped me, and groped me.
Tusk: Like I said, I-
Ange: You would have done more filthy and perverted things to me, too, wouldn't you?
Tusk: More filthy and perverted things? You think I'd feel up an unconscious girl's shapely breats, or taste every inch of her vulnerable body, or use her to admire the mysterious female figure? Do I look like I would do that sort of thing?
Ange: You would do that sort of thing? You dirty pervert!
Tusk: You misunderstand! I really meant to help-
|“|| Hilda: You seem eager.
Hilda: I don't get it. Why are you trying to help her? Are you being meddlesome again?
Ersha: I know you girls can't forgive Ange... And that you would like to shoot her down. But someone has accepted her, or she'll always be alone. That would be lonely, wouldn't it? We're all Normas, after all. Besides, Ange is a lot like how you used to be. That's why I can't just leave her.
Hilda: Like me? That wretch? I'll kill you, too.
|“|| Ange: What are you doing?
Tusk: Repair, I guess.
Ange: You can fix it?
Tusk: Bits and pieces of Para-mail wash up here sometimes. I got the hang of it after studying them. Can you bring me that hex wrench?
Ange: Why don't you just use Mana to move it? Why don't you? Why do you know about Para-mail? What are you?
Tusk: I'm Tusk. I'm just Tusk.
Ange: No, I mean-
Tusk: I knew it, the output circuits are shot. But the radio will work once we fix it. Then you can contact your people.
Ange: It's no use fixing it. They won't come, even if I contacted them. Even if I went back, no one would be waiting for me.
Tusk: Oh. If you're okay with it, why don't you stay here for a while? I won't do anything weird.
Ange: I suppose.

Notes & Trivia
The plot of this episode is similar to the phase in Fukuda's Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, War for Two where Athrun Zala gets stuck on an island with Cagalli Yula Athha. In Scenario 15 of Super Robot Wars V, Island Encounter, which draws much of its story from this episode, Tusk's Island turns out to be the same island Athrun was washed up on two years prior to Ange being in the same situation. When Tusk introduces Athrun to Ange, he mentions that he intruded upon Athrun and some girl in one of the island caves.
