Dog Days 2 -- a couple of word questions

First question: In episode 3 at 09:57, Couverte shouts something that sounds to me like "Leo-nee! Dettekoi!" The translation was "Leo-nee, come out!" What is it that she actually said?

Second question: In episode 10, 10:09, Nanami says something that they translate as "Bright Power Charge". It begins with ki but I can't work any of the rest of it out; she speaks too fast for me. I've been wondering for a while just what Japanese term they've been translating as "Bright Power" and this seems like a good example of it.

Third question: Episode 10 11:07, Nanami says something that they translate as "Finishing blow". It sounds to me like ichigeki hiisutou where "ichigeki" means "single blow". What's the rest of it?

2 I don't remember these individual instances, but J Greely sounds right on the 1st and 3rd.  He's technically right on the second, too, but it's not the word they're using.  Kiryoku in Dog Days is read 輝力, the word we translate as "Bright Power".  That first kanji is the one meaning "sparkle" or "shine". 

If you're curious I can go dig out the episode scripts after lunch.

3 That's OK, I don't think you need to. I appreciate the offer.

4 Thanks, that makes more sense; I was relying on fan-sites for the kanji on that one, and found lots of 気 at the top of the search results.
