86 Episode 11 Spoilers

In episode 10, the 5 survivors find their path blocked by a river. As they can’t take their Juggernaut units into the river, Shinei suggests that they should take a break from running. They realize that they are well into the former Empire’s territory. During their stay in a deserted imperial town, Raiden asks Shinei if their time in the Empire reminds him of his childhood, prompting Shinei to explain that his parents were from the Empire, but he was born in the Republic. Shinei senses that a former 86er that has been turned into a Black Sheep is crawling toward them. He finds the unit and destroys the core, freeing it from its suffering.

In the post-credits scene, Fido’s time with Shinei and the Spearhead is shown in a montage of videos it recorded. It is revealed that Fido is the same robot dog Shinei used to have as a child. The episode ends with the images of Fido burning, a little over 2 weeks after the survivors made it to the riverbank. In episode 11, Shinei and the crew might find their way to a settlement and discover that the nation once known as the Empire of Giad is still there but since has transformed into a federal republic. Shinei and others might find some peace there, even if it’s temporary. The reasons for Fido’s destruction might be revealed as well.
