I suck at getting round to working on this show sometimes, well, most of the time.
Anyways, decided to do these two episodes together as they are the last Tomino directed episode, and the first episode directed by Nagahama. Episode 28 should follow in a week or two, it smacks you over the head with the exposition bat.
So, what actually happens in these episodes? To avoid spoiling much all I say is villainous schemes, acts of desperation by a certain prince, and a new threat appears.

Translation notes and credits below the cut.
Thanks to Luurah for editing/QC, Ray for QC and snarky commentary on the stupidity of not!Borot, and Ametuchi for putting up with my stupid TL questions and chipping in on good names for villains.
TL notes: The new villains from the end of 27 have their names translated as they’re full kanji compounds, as opposed to the katakana phonetic spellings of all the other villains. Thanks to Ametuchi for helping them sound less stupid.
