"Showdown" is the seventh episode of Pacific Rim: The Black, and the seventh episode in the series overall. It debuted on Netflix March 4, 2021.


Another Jaeger distress signal goes off in the city of Clayton. The Travis siblings head there in their Jaegar and are reunited with Mei, their parents' Jaegar, and Copperhead.


Taylor and Hayley attempt to practice with their new weaponry but initially struggle. After practice, Taylor attempts to ask Loa about the incident at the Boneyard. Loa suddenly notices another Jaeger in the relative area and the siblings head out immediately to find them.

They head within the city and find Mei on top of a building. They're both on the way to Clayton, and they head inside to catch up. The party uses the music machine to have a good time, but Mei gets uncomfortable because the café used to belong to her family. She kicks them out, but she can't hide secrets after drifting with Hayley. Mei says it's hard to know what's real, and she's simply been searching for her truth, that's how she ended up here.

The trio continues searching the city until they find a depowered Hunter Vertigo, meaning this was as far as their parents got. They're unsure of the details, but Taylor is quick to assume. They go inside the hatch to find information where they discover a video of their final recording. It's unclear if they escaped alive, upsetting the siblings.

Meanwhile, Copperhead returns once again to settle the score with the Atlas Destroyer. It finds the Jaeger without its pilots, alerting Mei. Copperhead attacks them and just when all seems lost, the boy transforms into a giant Kaiju and fights Copperhead himself. He gets trapped under rubble after their fight, but he buys Mei and Taylor enough time to boot up Atlas Destroyer. Even that isn't enough to put down Copperhead for good, but Hayley is able to engage Hunter Vertigo's warheads and destroys the Kaiju once and for all.

After the battle, everyone returns to the boy-turned-Kaiju's side. Unbeknownst to them, they're being watched by above by a group of sisters searching for the "Kaiju Messiah".
