Forgiveness is the 26th episode of Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders. It aired on October 16, 2010.
After the battle with Barodius, the Brawlers repair the damage that has been done. The second shield and the shield generator are completely destroyed, leaving only the third shield remaining. With that, the Brawlers get Captain Elright to transport them back to the Castle. However, Ren gets left behind because the third shield scans everyone's DNA and blocks Gundalians from passing through. Also Fabia doesn't completely trust Ren yet. Fabia still thinks Ren is evil. Queen Serena explains to the rest of the Brawlers that Aranaut used to belong to Fabia's fiancé, Jin, but he lost Aranaut in battle to Kazarina and was killed. Fabia snuck on to Gundalia and rescued Aranaut from Kazarina's lab and the two became partners, but Aranaut lost his memory of the incident and believes that Fabia was always his partner. Therefore, Fabia still does not trust the Gundalians. But Dan convinces her to trust Ren. Marucho ventures into the forest to look for Ren, when he is nearly eaten by a carnivorous plant but Ren saves him. Then Marucho brings food for him but Ren comments that he doesn't deserve his forgiveness. Marucho tries to convince him that he has already been forgiven by the Brawlers but Fabia appears to test him by battling him. If he wins, he gets to stay, but if he loses, he must leave Neathia forever. In the battle, Linehalt manages to hold his own against Aranaut, but is still weak from using his forbidden power and falls. Then Ren decides to use Rubanoid much to the surprise of the other Brawlers. Rubanoid is defeated, but after seeing his commitment to avenge Sid's death, she decides to trust him, so he is made a member of the Castle Knights.

Battle Gear Seen
- This episode marks the first time when Fabia's true form is seen.
- Despite in an earlier episode where Fabia states that Neathian Bakugan can teleport anywhere they want and the Gundalians can teleport at will, she relies on Elright to teleport them. This may have been because Dan could not teleport with Drago but by making physical contact with any of the other brawlers he could've teleported as well.
- At one point in the episode, Dan had six fingers.
- There is a deleted scene in which after the Brawlers comment about Ren using Rubanoid, who is the Bakugan of the deceased Sid, Fabia remembers that she is using Aranaut, who is the Bakugan of the deceased Jin. It was only aired in the Japanese version.
