If you're looking for entertainment, this episode certainly offered a whole lot of that. Explosions, missiles, the whole enchilada of space battle action. What it also offered was the death of several redshirts, characters who surprisingly actually have names, and who decided to give up their lives for Simon's sake.
The concept of "Simon will find exactly where Nia is because of the power of love" is so cliche, I probably used it 10 times in my fanfictions. Then we get a whole bunch of jibber-jabber about Simon getting super-duper Spiral power that's going to pierce through the enemy, whoever and whatever it is. Then comes the battle, which is composed of Simon grunting and trying to make his Spiral power go up, and other people actually doing stuff, and a few giving their lives in the process. (I'm too lazy to write "Seemoan" tonight.)
In the end, the twins, along with a couple of others, get killed off. Note that I don't have names for them; that's because the series hasn't been all that great at giving me names and helping me remember them. I have to say that I tried my very best to enjoy this episode for what it was. I'm not being negative on purpose.
Character of the episode: Yoko
She had a couple of funny lines that made her my choice here.
