CODE GEASS – 08.5
What the Recap Covered:
-How Lelouch’s mother was killed, how he met Suzaku, and how Britannia invaded Japan.
-How Lelouch met C.C. and Suzaku again after he grew up.
-How C.C. got shot in the head protecting Lelouch, how he got the GEASS through the contract with her, and how she showed up again.
-The restrictions on the GEASS.
-Clovis and how he died.
-Cornelia and how she outplayed Lelouch.
-The appearance of the white Knightmare – the Lancelot.
-The Emperor of Britannia and his speech.
-Lelouch and his speech after he established his Black Knights.
-After the hotel hijacking incident, the world’s attention focused on the Zero and the Order of the Black Knights. The reactions ranged from repulsion to fear to adoration to fright to derision to delight. They had become heroes to the ghettos and villains to the Britannia settlements. Lelouch thinks that this is ok because they don’t need support from everyone. However, they still don’t have enough to drag out the Emperor.
-Nanaly feels that their reunion with Suzaku makes things like they used to be in the past. Lelouch tells her that he understands, but privately thinks that for the sake of that, he will destroy the world.
-The episode was pretty much a full recap, with only a few new shots. While there really weren’t any new scenes added in, Lelouch did voice over the entire thing.
-The end featured a cell phone promotion/contest for merchandise such as the OP single and a Lelouch figure.
-Because the only really interesting thing in this episode is the preview, I included extra caps and uploaded it for people who don’t want to download the full episode. Next week looks like we’re going to see lots of Kallen and her home situation, along with kitty Millay.
