CODE GEASS R2 – 20 »« CODE GEASS R2 – 18



Despite the FLEIJA detonation in Tokyo that has caused over 10 million deaths and 25 million total casualties, the Emperor of Britannia decides to leave things entirely to Schneizel. On the other side of the conflict, Diethard tries to stop Cornelia from escaping the Ikaruga, but before he can recapture her, a special Britannian diplomatic envoy arrives carrying Schneizel himself. Lelouch is at this moment desperately trying to get his men to find Nunnally, but Toudou ignores him and orders a retreat instead. Rolo eventually brings Lelouch back to his room on the Ikaruga and tries to comfort Lelouch by saying that Lelouch still has him. Although initially calm, Lelouch becomes enraged when he sees the heart-shaped locket on Rolo’s cell phone, and he questions why Rolo has it since he had originally intended to give it to Nunnally. He accuses Rolo of trying to be an replacement for her and goes on to admit that he both despises Rolo and has tried to kill him many times. Lelouch then kicks Rolo out, telling him not to show himself again. Meanwhile, over on the Avalon, Nina is finally realizing that she didn’t understand what kind of damage her weapon would cause. This prompts Lloyd to tell her that she has to decide whether to abandon science to protect her heart or to break her heart and sacrifice herself for science. When Nina wonders what choice Lloyd made, he claims that he was broken from the very beginning.

Inside the giant crater that makes up what’s left of the Tokyo Settlement, Jeremiah finds Suzaku just standing there, so he takes the chance to thank Suzaku for saving him a long time ago. Jeremiah also comments on how they’re probably destined to be enemies before returning to searching for Nunnally. Without Zero around, the Black Knights’ leadership meanwhile decides to meet with Schneizel by themselves. It is during this meeting that Schneizel reveals – much to everyone’s shock – that Zero is his younger brother Lelouch Vi Britannia. Diethard attempts to dismiss this as nonsense designed to confuse them, and he brings up all the miracles that Zero has performed for them, but Schneizel calls the miracles fake and proceeds to tell them all about Geass. Tamaki still refuses to believe anything without proof, and it is at this point that Ougi appears and declares that there is proof. Ougi feels that Zero has always been deceiving them and using them as pawns, and he reveals that Zero didn’t just use Geass against their enemies. Schneizel then plays the recording of Suzaku confronting Lelouch at the Kururugi shrine in which Lelouch admits to giving a Geass order to Euphemia to massacre the Japanese. As further proof, Kanon presents a set of documents of all the people and events where they suspect Geass was used. He also reveals that they had told Zero about the FREIJA beforehand in order to avoid unnecessary conflict, and the Black Knight leaders feel betrayed because Zero never informed them. Now that the Black Knights have lost faith in Zero, Schneizel asks them to hand him over, but to everyone’s surprise, Ougi asks for Japan in return.

Shortly after all this, Kallen pays a visit to Lelouch’s room with a message from Ougi to come to the fourth warehouse. When she hears C.C. tell Lelouch to take off his clothes – so that C.C. can apply a band-aid to wherever he’s hurt – Kallen overreacts, so Lelouch explains that C.C. has lost her memories. This makes Kallen realize that Lelouch has lost both C.C. and Nunnally now. On the elevator ride down, Lelouch tells Kallen that he’s glad she’s safe, and he apologizes for not rescuing her earlier. In response, she reveals that she had gotten to speak with Nunnally and that Nunnally had helped her. Kallen then starts to talk about how she also had a brother, but she’s interrupted by the Black Knights confronting Lelouch. They are all heavily armed and have brought Knightmares, and Diethard intends to make it look like Zero died in action. Kallen initially tries to protect Lelouch and in the process asks him what she is to him because she’s willing to die with him. Before answering, Lelouch notices that Schneizel is here as well, and this causes him to realize that there’s no way out. He thus decides to remove his mask and laughs about how it took this long for everyone to figure out they were being used. Lelouch calls Kallen his most excellent pawn and claims that this was all a game, but as she leaves his side, he says quietly that she must live on.

Before the Black Knights can execute Lelouch, Rolo bursts onto the scene onboard the Shinkirou. Determined to protect his brother, Rolo grabs Lelouch and uses his Geass power to escape from the Ikaruga. Even Anya in the Mordred is unable to stop the Shinkirou when it’s augmented by Rolo’s repeated use of his Geass power. Getting into the Shinkirou’s cockpit, Lelouch tries to stop Rolo because he knows that Rolo’s heart won’t be able to handle such Geass usage, but Rolo refuses. He knows that he’s always been someone’s tool, whether it was the religious cult or Lelouch, but he also knows that the time he spent with Lelouch was genuine, and thanks to those memories, he feels that he was able to become human. In short, he believes that what he’s doing now is not due to him being used as a tool but rather due to his own free will. Rolo’s abilities are enough to let them escape from all their pursuers, and he eventually lands the Shinkirou in a forest away from Tokyo. When Lelouch asks why Rolo saved him, Rolo asserts that Lelouch was lying earlier when he said he wanted to kill Rolo and hated him. Lelouch claims that Rolo saw through him and calls Rolo his little brother moments before Rolo passes away, his final words saying that he knows everything about his older brother. Putting the cell phone and locket in Rolo’s limp hand, Lelouch agrees that he’s a liar.

In the aftermath, Lelouch reflects on how he’s lost everything, but he thanks Rolo for keeping him alive since there’s still something he has to do. With the Emperor ready to destroy the old world and create a new one, Lelouch declares that he’ll take his father with him down the road to Hell.


For all the bad things that Rolo did, I thought he got a rather honorable and redeeming ending with a nice accompanying song (Boku wa, Tori ni Naru by Hitomi). My problem here is that I don’t think he deserved something like this after what he did to Shirley. In fact, I’m still fairly convinced that Lelouch would have been better off all along without him. It does make me I wonder though if the writers are going to push redemption storylines for all the characters, whether it be in death or whatever. Nina for example now seems to regret her weapon and the toll it took, so she might try to do something to right her wrongs. And despite Suzaku’s apparent madness (if you could call it that), I have a hard time seeing him ending that way.

As for the story itself, something about it all feels odd. I suspect it’s because, with Schneizel revealing everything, the Black Knights turning on Lelouch, and Lelouch basically losing everything all in one episode, it feels like the story’s moving almost too quickly, yet there’s still about a quarter of the series left. A lot can happen in that time – I’m still waiting for everyone to go to space – but the only thing I can think of is that they’ve given Lelouch his fall from greatness so that he can rise up again, maybe redeeming himself along the way. That rise will probably come against the Emperor and his plan to destroy the old world and create a new one, and at the pace they’re going, it could happen as soon as next week. It might not be the only thing of note next week though since it’ll also be interesting to see what Suzaku does and what Gino is up to.

    It’s amazing that almost everyone ignores Milly Ashford because they don’t want to see any sort of development between her and Lelouch. Everyone is so narrowly focused on Kallen or C.C. with considering that Milly might just surprise everyone as Lelouch’s real love interest and partner. And she is NOT a cousin of Lelouch, nor a sister. If she wasn’t that important, then why did she escape the area before the bomb destroyed that area? Someone must have told her to leave the area. Perhaps it was Nina who told her about it.

  • August 18, 2008 at 3:27 pmILL

    Nope, Milly only manages to run from tokyo because she has already run since shinkirou was fighting mordred, watch episode 18 when there are people running, you’ll find milly among them

  • August 18, 2008 at 3:28 pmH

    Milly?!? pfff… Rivalz x Lelouch FTW

  • August 18, 2008 at 3:55 pmKalessin

    With regards to Milly getting out of there, she was with the news crew early in episode 18. They ran away after the fighting got hot. Apparently, they ran far enough away to be outside the blast radius of FLEIJA.

    As for Milly, as a love interest…. I know that you love the idea – and I agree that given the chance it could work out – but I just don’t think that there’s really any screentime development to support it. Really, prior to episode 12 of R2, I don’t think that there was any really indication that Milly liked Lelouch. She was always trying to get Shirley to go after Lelouch, not try and get him herself. But while episode 12 seriously implied that Milly had some feelings for Lelouch and Shirley is no longer there for Milly to try and get together with Lelouch, Lelouch hasn’t even spoken to Milly since she left Ashford. And while Milly may like Lelouch, there’s never been any indication that he’s ever felt more for her than the love of a friend.

    I agree that given the chance, Milly X Lelouch could work, but there’s been no real development for it and we’re almost out of time. If they were really going to develop Milly X Lelouch, they would almost certainly have done it by now. Some folks are already complaining that the plot is moving forward too quickly. Adding a new love interest for Lelouch would only crowd things that much more. There just isn’t the time for it.

  • August 18, 2008 at 4:25 pmMax

    I do agree that there wasn’t enough screen time between Milly x Lelouch. However, for a person who only likes Lelouch as a friend, how come Milly wanted Lelouch’s hat on that Cupid’s Day episode? There was the time when Authur the cat was stuck in his Zero mask and Milly was desperate to know what he was hiding. Where it not for her obligations to marry a Noble in order for her family’s status to be restored, Milly and Lelouch would have been a couple a long time ago. She is secretly in love with Lelouch. A love that Lelouch is unaware that she has for him

    Had Marianne not been murdered, Milly might have met Lelouch a lot sooner. As for Kallen and Shirley, Prince Lelouch would not have met either of them.

    You’re right that the plot has taken over much of the season. As a result, less time for character development throughout the entire R2. I guess that the writers wanted to tell their story as quickly as possible. It’s surprising that there will not be a R3 for Code Geass because it could have balanced everything together. I do feel that things are moving much too quickly with R2.

  • August 18, 2008 at 5:01 pmKalessin

    I wasn’t trying to claim that Milly only thought of Lelouch as a friend. I was saying that Lelouch only thought of Milly as a friend. Episode 12 of R2 does indeed imply that Milly has a secret crush on Lelouch, but – as you said – he’s unaware of it. And prior to Shirley’s death, Milly was always trying to get Shirley to go after Lelouch, so she’s never really gone after him herself. In fact, the cupid’s hat bit was really the only place that she showed any interest at all – and Lelouch does not appear to have picked up on the fact that Milly was having everyone chase him for anything other than the fun of it. Regardless of how Milly or Lelouch feels, however, without the screentime for developing their relationship, it’ll never go anywhere.

    People even argue over whether there’s enough romantic development between Lelouch and Kallen and Lelouch and C.C. for him to ever get together with either of them and there’s a lot more romantic development between Lelouch and those two girls than there is for Milly.

    If the writers had done things differently, then Milly and Lelouch could certainly have been together, but they didn’t. Personally, I don’t think that Milly was really ever in the running or that she ever will be. She had the potential to be (and perhaps could have been had there been a 3rd season), but that’s not the direction that the writers went.

  • August 18, 2008 at 6:50 pmWingZero zxt

    @ Max
    Theres almost n romantic involvment between lelouch and Milly!!! the first i heard of even the remotest possibility is that ONE time when sayakon asks her and she ses somthing along the lines of , ‘it would of been nice’ It seems that the only reason you think the series is moving to quickly is because there isnt enough time to support a milly lelouch relationship!
    ( i would however be quite annoyed if Kallen dies and slightly less annoyed if it goes no where between them! And whats this about Lelouch and Milly making a good team? I cant beleive youd base this on just the one episode of school (the jokes episode) where shes trying to catch lelouch aswell as the one with his Zero helmet going missing! please explain further
    (Does seem like all conjecture on your part otherwise though Max!)

    As much as everyone now hates schniziel i honestly think they were trying to save lelouch (from himself)in this ep! Consider this

    1. Schniziel and Cornelia are relative new comers to the geass Scene
    2. Schniziel and Cornelia were both shocked when Ougi asked for Japan in return for lelouch but couldnt do it in the end and so let the BlakcKnights handle him!
    3. Schniziel and Cornelia genuinely seem to have no idea about all the surrounding information regarding Lelouch geass orders like we do

    So whilst its true that i find Schniziel ReALLly Annoying!!! (Like a sitting behind a tractor on the way to work!) Hes notihng more than an ABsolute pain! (with the standard moral decadence that being a Brittanian royal implies ofcourse!) He played it well but in the end it seems that (providing im right about him genuinely caring for lelouch) he lost
    Its a bit annoying also that the OotBK listened to Schiniziel based primarily on HIS WORD! (and a whole heap of CIRCUMSTANTIAL evidence!)

    LOL at the emperor

    Knight:Should we really stay here at Kamine island?
    Emperor: It allright leave everytihng to schiniziel
    Knight: Are you sure?? you did spend the entire trip here monologing about how schniziel is nothing more than a pretty face, a puppet ,a tool of the empire, your pet , your cute blonde little play thing, your favourite doll, your tasty piece of a…
    Emperor: ENOUGH!!! i know full well my monolog IT WAS MY MONOLOG!!! now QUIET DOWN or youll become the subject of my NEXT ONE, GET OUT!!!!!
    Knight: y..yes your majesty!
    Emperor: Ah so where was i? Ahyess… “Who couldve imagined… that i would have to use this system? The Ragnarok Connection

  • August 18, 2008 at 6:58 pmAndresa


    I can’t wait to know what is “Ragnarok”.

    Lelouch seemed too much with Raito (Death Note) this epi.

  • August 18, 2008 at 9:28 pmPersona0

    Lol at the millyxlulu they havnt even spoken to each other in HOW MANY ep
    like the only 2 possible ppl it could be is cc or kallen since they’ve had the longest
    interaction with lulu. But really in the end he will most likely be alone cc will most likely be dead and kallen will be running from gino

  • August 18, 2008 at 9:59 pmBigTime

    It’s not Ragnarok but RAGNAREK. Listen carefully to the Emperor.

  • August 18, 2008 at 10:06 pmMax

    Every since Turn 13, Lelouch has faced nothing but action all the way until he was betrayed by the Black Knights. Unless Lelouch goes back to Ashford Academy, it is unlike that we’ll see a Milly x Lelouch moment, due to the lack of screentime between them. I only wish that Shirley never came in the way between Milly and Lelouch because I think that the writers created Shirley to distract the viewers from knowing the real chemistry between Milly and Lelouch.

  • August 18, 2008 at 11:38 pmGeassJ

    I actually thought Rolo was cool. I even have a model of the Vincent Knightmare. (not the point) Until Rolo killed Shirley I wanted Rolo in a bad ending but after watching this episode Im happy for him. The whole senario almost made me actually cry (because of the music added in there)

    I so wanna find the spoilers of this show

  • August 19, 2008 at 12:22 ammalcriado

    Leaving the rolo issue a side i need to say:
    All hail Brittania!!All hail Brittania!!
    All hail Brittania!!All hail Brittania!!

    The OoBk is dead without Zero and I am sure Xing Ke wont support the rebels xD

  • August 19, 2008 at 1:44 amgeass

    I really want nina to die she’s such a retard didn’t she realize that if she creates a weapon of mass destruction and then sets it off in tokyo one of the most densley populated areas in the world lots of people will die + I still hate Rolo for killing Shirley and has Suzaku really gone off the deep end

  • August 19, 2008 at 1:51 amKalulu

    I also wish that Nina will just die.She really has to.

    As for Rolo,he was raised as such so you can’t blame him entirely.

    Here’s my tribute to Rolo:


  • August 19, 2008 at 2:01 amDane

    It seems like everything is back to square one for Lelouch. Well, maybe square two.

    But still, this opened up a variety of paths Lelouch could take. Kill the emperor (likely), live life alone, kill himself, etc… This actually makes me curious on what he’ll do next.

    About the Milly x Lelouch, though… I don’t really see it happening. They had too much time apart to just suddenly explode into romance. Rivalz x Milly? ;p

  • August 19, 2008 at 2:24 amRemmell

    It’s hard to call it narrowly focus on any character when this season has been filled with a great deal of scenes involving Kallen. Lelouch has had one kiss with Shirley, two from her perspective; he’s had two with C.C., though the second one was in the act of returning his memories; then there have been two “almost” kisses with Kallen. It makes me wonder why do they keep teasing that?
    Even in the latest episode Kallen was willing to die with Lelouch, though I noticed that she called him Lelouch. Normally, when she was in front of others she’s always said Zero. The Black Knights never really even acknowledged that they knew who he really was. Just about his Geass. All Kallen wanted to know was what she was to him. Lelouch was looking for a way out, but when he saw his brother he saw no other way. Lelouch played the hero by acting the villain. He got Kallen to walk away and saved her, but once she was out of the line of fire he whispered his final words to her. He had no idea Rolo was going to show up and block the fire. He told her to live on. If he really felt nothing for her, why did he tell her anything rather then letting her hate him? Seems he at least wanted her to understand the truth.
    Kallen still had that dream of a Japan with her mother, but she was willing to die with him. That’s pretty powerful.
    I just wouldn’t see the point of making these incredibly emotional scenes if they never led anywhere. It would feel like a waste of time and drama. For there to be such moments that led to nothing at all. A good chunk of this season would be meaningless.
    Looks like my thoughts were right on about the spoilers. Though I was off about his final word moment. I thought that was going to happen after the death of Rolo and Betrayal. While she has remained, so far, with the Black Knights she doesn’t hate Lelouch.
    Though the spoiler said that his last word would be key to understanding his feelings. That last word was to Kallen. No comment about Nunnally, like he did last episode when he thought he could die; or nothing about taking care of C.C. He wanted her to live on.
    Despite that whole scene where Kallen tried to guard him. What surprised me more was he told her that he was pleased she was alright, and apologized for not coming sooner. He actually apologized to someone openly and honestly!
    I did notice that line Kallen used misunderstood C.C.’s comment. “What have you to been doing while I’ve been captive?” Sounds like the idea that they might have been enjoying themselves intimately while she was in jail hurt her feelings.
    With lelouch gone I’m guessing it’s up to Kallen to care for and protect C.C. I look forward to a scene with those two. I wonder. If she called Lelouch “Master”, how will she address “Kallen” at first. Also, Kallen doesn’t know her real name. How will Kallen address her? MAYBE we will get to hear her real name. Providing some scene doesn’t go like, “Wait, what is your real name?” (scene is cut and we don’t hear it, but Kallen does.) This show seems to LOVE to cut Kallen off.
    Shouls also be interesting to see if Kallen stays with the Black Knights. Aren’t they going to be hunting Lelouch to fulfill that deal? IF Kallen leaves I think Rakshata will help. I noticed how she wasn’t at the meeting or the ambush. She was busy with the Guren.

  • August 19, 2008 at 2:27 amKalessin

    You know. I think that we now know why Kallen was crying in the first OP. If anything would make her cry, it would be the events of episode 19. In fact, we did see her cry. However, I don’t think that we’ll ever again see her cry for the same reason (that is, thinking that Lelouch doesn’t care for her and that he’s used her). If she cries again, it’s because the OotBK betrayed Zero, so she can’t be with him right now (at least and stay in the OotBK) and he’s not leading the OotBK, so they’re likely to be in sore shape for a bit.

    In any case, I just remembered that Kallen had been crying in the first OP and that we’d all been wondering why. I think that we pretty much know why now.

  • August 19, 2008 at 2:39 amFX102

    Man, maybe I should just not watch any more eps for 4 weeks and then watch the last lot all in one sitting cos I can’t take the suspense between episodes anymore.

    Things have really gone downhill for Lelouch and I seriously have no idea what he’s gonna do now and with Kallen possibly convinced that his words were merely a feint, could she still be willing to help him achieve his goals.

    On a another note, with all this talk about from the emperor about obtaining the power of a god / killing a god, I was starting to wonder whether if there could be one one of those incredibly unexpected endings where everything reverts back to the way it was before and everyone’s alive and all? I know the chances are next to nil and many people hate when this sort of stuff happens (I myself am mixed, depends on the situation). Sure I’d like some of the dead characters to return, but I want the story to be plausible.

  • August 19, 2008 at 2:53 amWingZero zxt


  • August 19, 2008 at 3:00 amKalessin

    Upon reflection, I have now come to the conclusion that the OotBK’s betrayal has a very good chance of being an incredibly good thing in the long run. This show has a long history of having nasty things happen and yet having them help lead to very positive things. I think that this situation will definitely fall in that category.

    Some Bad Things:
    1. Lelouch no longer has the OotBK. This means that he cannot use them to meet his goals.

    2. Lelouch is separated from pretty much everyone. He has no allies (with him) at present.

    3. Lelouch must come up with an entirely different strategy to defeat the emperor and Britannia.

    4 The OotBK no longer has Zero. They’re going to have to fend for themselves now.

    5. The OotBK lost the Shinkirou. They’re done one of their most powerful Knightmares.

    6. Rolo is dead. He had a really useful Geass.

    Possible Good Things:
    1. Rolo is dead. He can’t screw up Lelouch’s plans anymore due to his instability and misunderstanding of what he should and shouldn’t do.

    2. The OotBK must now learn to function on their own, without Zero. If they’re really going to be the military arm of one of the most powerful group of nations in the world, they really need to be able to function without relying on one man.

    3. Lelouch must come up with an entirely different strategy to defeat the emperor and Britannia. His previous strategy would only have resulted in Japan’s independence and possibly general instability in Britannia if some of the other Areas rebelled after Japan’s success. He wasn’t really dealing with the emperor’s wacko plan about Ragnarok (though to be fair, he doesn’t really know about it). Now he’ll be taking on the emperor directly and stands a chance of stopping the emperor from destroying the world.

    4. Lelouch now has chance to develop on his own without much in the way of allies. How positive this is, I don’t know, but it means that he probably won’t be manipulating any of his friends or allies anymore (if nothing else, they’re not with him to be manipulated).

    5. If you’re a Kallen X Lelouch fan, I think that it’s safe to say that that relationship just got a major shot in the arm. Lelouch not only apologized (which as Remmell points out, he basically never does) to Kallen, but he basically threw away his life to save her. She’s got to know that he cares a great deal about her now (as a close friend at minimum, if not a potential love interest).

    6. For Ougi X Viletta fans, it looks like Ougi and Viletta may be hanging out together now. That relationship stands a decent chance of becoming stable now. Whether she’ll be helping the OotBK or not, I don’t know, but I think that it’s fairly safe to say that she has feelings for Ougi and wants to be with him. The real question there (as always, I suppose) is how she’ll deal with the fact that that means not going against Britannia (or at least not stopping Ougi and his friends from going against it).

    I’m sure that other positive things (and probably more negative things as well) could be found about the situation, but I think that that’s the main ones. Basically, by losing Zero (who will likely be declared dead by the OotBK), the OotBK stands a chance of becoming a self-sustaining organization that will outlast the current conflict and be able to continue to function as the military arm of the UFN far into the future. So, the OotBK will – in the long run at least – be better off without Zero. In the short they’re likely to be hurting, but in the long term, it’s probably for the best. As you’ll notice, they’ve gradually been becoming more autonomous. Zero wasn’t leading all of the last battle and the OotBK were able to more or less cope without him when they lost contact with him when he was fighting Anya. They won’t have his miracles anymore, but they should be able to function without him.

    As for Lelouch, this gives him the chance to really get away from all the lies and achieve his main objective of dealing with the emperor. If he’d stayed with the OotBK, he would have been tied down in dealing with Schneizel and the war to retake Japan. Now he has the opportunity to move on his own and take care of the emperor (thus dealing with the far larger threat of Ragnarok). This path may even allow him to become emperor and thus be able to reform Britannia as he pleases (depending on what happens to the emperor and what his public position is). While becoming emperor may turn out to be out of his reach (and I’m not sure that he’ll really want to anyway), it’s his opportunity to deal with the threat that no one’s been dealing with: Ragnarok.

    So, as bad as the situation is, I think that it will actually turn out for the best in the end. My main hope is that Lelouch will be able to reconcile with the members of the OotBK who knew who he was and betrayed him. Certainly, it’s looking like given the opportunity, Kallen would return to him, so I’m not terribly worried about that (though it would be nice if it were sooner rather than later), but it’s definitely a question as to whether Ougi, Toudoh, and the rest will ever be his allies again.

    By the way, what’s Lelouch going to wear now? ;) I really don’t think that he’s going to wear the Zero mask again any time soon – if ever – and wearing his current clothes would probably give him away as being Zero. But he’s now out in the boonies without support and probably without a change of clothes. Given the opportunity to choose, he’d probably choose the casual clothes that he usually wears (I certainly wouldn’t expect him to be running around in his school uniform since he probably won’t be returing to Ashford anytime soon). But still, it means a wardrobe change for him. LOL.

  • August 19, 2008 at 3:10 amKalessin

    Man, this is one of those times that I wish that I could read Japanese. I just noticed that on the character chart ( http://www.geass.jp/correlative.html ) Viletta is listed as one of the OotBK now. Perhaps that means that she’s actually going to work as one of them now (or maybe it just means that she’s going to stick around with Ougi). There’s also no longer really an Ashford block anymore. Rivalz and Milly are the same color, but they’re in separate blocks and not grouped with anyone.

    What I’d really like to know what it says, however, is the big red arrow from the OoTBK to Zero/Lelouch – who, if you’ll notice, has his own block now with Lelouch, Zero, and Rolo (dead) in it. There’s also a big red arrow from Suzaku to the OotBK (I don’t recall if that was ever there before) and I really don’t know what that could say (arch nemesis?). In any case, being able to read what everything says on that chart would be really nice. But tough luck, I guess.

  • August 19, 2008 at 3:15 amTony

    best episode ever…

  • August 19, 2008 at 3:54 amMax

    The big RED arrows represent that the Black Knights now consider Zero as their enemy. In addition, Suzaku’s big arrow represents that he’ll be fighting the Black Knights. The grey around Lelouch’s box would indicate that he is now isolated, while Rivalz and Milly’s box would reveal that they are at Ashford Academy. Looks like Lelouch will be making a house call to Rivalz in the next episode.

  • August 19, 2008 at 4:03 amAdahn

    The arrow from the OotBK to Lulu essentially says “sold to Britannia”, while the one from Suzaku to the OotBK says “fired FLEIJA in area 11″. Nothing new to be learned from them.

    the main plot points of Code Geass are very similar to the movie Braveheart. Throw in some Authurian legend, Gundam mecha’s, and supernatural abilities and you got a good show. I hope they end it in a similar sad fashion; It would make Geass epic.

    -It would be amusing to see lelouch by himself offing head members of the black knights for betraying him.
    -It was a very bad trade the black knights made:
    lose the captive britannian princess, cornelia
    lose xingke, and the chinese (from the immediate question of what are zero’s orders in this episode)
    -looks like they give deithart a beating
    -And probably make the mistake of not being the blackknights anymore which will isolate them from the united nations leaving they newly reacquired japan an easy picking for anyone.
    -we’ll have to see what kaguya does

    About Lelouch’s clothes. Remember that Lelouch didn’t make all that himself either. He had someone make everything and then Geassed him to forget. He can probably go to a store, get some clothes, and Geass the clerk. The Geass card. Better then the Visa Reward Card.

    You should notice that when Villetta was talking about the Geass is how Lelouch got Jeremiah and Guilford to join “our” side. Though she should know by now that Jeremiah is immune to Geass.
    OKAY, with my near horrible ability to read Japanese, along with my phrase books and kanji guide I was able to answer those big red marks. The mark from the Black Knights, starting from Ougi, to the Lelouch. That says Britannian “urareru” I can’t find a specific definition for this one in my books. I found “ureru”. That means ‘to sell, to be well known. I think it may be saying, “Sold out to Brittannia”. Meaning they are after him.
    The big red mark from Suzaku to the Black Knights says “Area 11 FREIJA wo hanatsu”. I believe it means he fired FREIJA at Area 11. Between Lelouch and Suzaku it says “old friends”.
    The thin line leading to Rival says “yuujin” or “friend”. I think Milly if off there since she’s not in school anymore.
    I can try and translate the rest if you’d like. It’s a bit hard with as small as the kanji is. I think this is more about broad relationships. As you see there are lines from Ougi to Toudo and Diethard, but no line to Villetta. There is also no line from Suzaku to Euphiemia. Not even aline from Nunnally to Lelouch. I’ve seen that chart in the past and it hasn’t shown them connected all season.
    I would think after the next episode, if Zero is exposed to the public, Zero should be labeled dead.

    Sucks for Kallen always being in the Bunny suit. I like it though.

  • August 19, 2008 at 7:11 amULTRA MAN

    The story must continue…..
    Lelouch shall become petty thief!
    Good episode though, i wonder whats going to happen C.C, I’m thinking that kallen might return to his side after realizing zero saved her life. Maybe he will side with the Chinese…

    Rolo is just damn stupid, he had chosen the worst way to save Lelouch by killing himself, when he could just kill everyone in the storage room, especially Schneizel, or at least disarm them. That what I hate in supernatural guys — they are idiots. AAaarhg!
    However Code Geass rules in comparison with Heroes Tv series, where every single character is brain-damaged.

  • August 19, 2008 at 12:40 pmChino F

    I wonder if a video was captured at all of Euphemia and Lelouch talking back in the coliseum room. Whoever will see that may have a change of mind about Lelouch.

    The next episode may focus less on Lelouch and more on what’s happening on both sides (Britannia and Black Knights) in his absence. Perhaps they’ll announce to the world that Zero is Lelouch? Then when Milly and Rivalz see it, they’ll look for him?

    Lelouch might die ultimately at the end for a real tragedy… and Suzaku becomes emperor of Britannia! LOL

  • August 19, 2008 at 1:45 pmKymielth

    It’s confusing. I thought the song inside the locket name “Lullaby of M” by Hitomi, why is it now “Boku wa, tori ni naru” ???

  • August 19, 2008 at 1:46 pmKalessin

    Well, thanks everyone who was able to figure out what the red arrows said. The Zero one isn’t all that surprising but I find it a little odd to put an arrow from Suzaku to the OotBK saying that he used FREIJA. I guess that they just wanted to put that on there somewhere since it was a big event and it made the most sense to tie it to the OotBK since most of the notes on there are between people or groups of people.

  • August 19, 2008 at 1:50 pmoo

    Rolo was just a child!!

  • August 19, 2008 at 1:52 pmKalessin

    I’m pretty sure that it was Chiba who commented that the Geass explained how Jeremiah and Guilford joined “our” side. I don’t think that Viletta’s mouth was moving at that point.

    That’s a good point as to how he’ll get the clothes – though it doesn’t really answer what he’s going to be wearing. He’s still going to have to get to somewhere where he has a change of clothes in either case (maybe he’s actually hiding his school uniform in the Shinkirou given how many times he seems to have changed while in it). In either case, it was more of an idle thought than something particularly important. Whatever he ends up dressing as (presumably not any part of the Zero outfit), they probably won’t even explain how he got it unless they’re going to have him hiding out in the woods for a bit.

  • August 19, 2008 at 2:05 pmKalessin

    @Chino F
    Euphemia had all the cameras turned off before she talked with Zero. I wouldn’t expect her to lie about such a thing (or much of anything really) and even if someone had managed to keep a camera on contrary to her orders, I would have expected Cornelia to find out about Lelouch being Zero sooner as a result. No one appears to have learned Zero’s identity from that encounter.

    Really, if Lelouch wants people to trust him again, he’s going to need to do two things:

    1. Cause more miracles that really help defeat Britannia and thus show that he still supports the cause of the OotBK. This would be even more effective if what he does directly supports the OotBK in spite of them having betrayed him.

    2. Explain what really happened. This is really iffy given his disposition to just lie about it and take the blame, but he’s going to need to explain what really happened with Euphemia, that he wasn’t Geassing the members of the OotBK, etc. It might be enough (given that #1 occurs) if he were able to explain this to Kallen in depth – thus filling in any holes in her knowledge on the matter (I doubt that she knows what happened with Euphemia, for instance) and she was able to explain it to those in the OotBK who betrayed him. Without any explanations, they’re bound to still think that he used them and thus likely won’t reconcile with him.

    So, really, Zero is almost certainly going to need to prove himself and explain himself if the OotBK is ever going to reconcile with him.

    About Milly x Lelouch;
    there had be hints about Milly having some crush on Lelouch in season 1. In episode 15 she asked Lelouch seriously what to do about the marriage proposal with Lloyd. So far she had rejected all proposals, probably because she liked Lelouch. Now I was under the impression that now they were alone, she wanted to see Lelouch reaction to her possible engagement. I guess she was hoping that he would give her a reaction that might give her hope that she might still have a shot at him.

    The picture drama in which the school does a gender reversal dress up, has Milly (and Shirley) tell Lelouch that they have liked him for a long time. It was probably more meant as a joke from Milly’s side, with a hint of the truth.

    I agree that the Lelouch x Milly pairing just has not gotten enough screen time for any development. There was so much more emphasis at Shirley and Milly’s secret affections for Lelouch were just too subtle and too little. With the Ashford-centric episodes, they could have tried to push the Lelouch x Milly pairing if they wanted to.

    In any case, maybe Milly will come into play (with or without Rivalz), to help out Lelouch in some small way. The Ashford’s have always looked after Lelouch and have no reason not to aid him in some way. Maybe shelter again, or giving him a old Ganymede. But the last two seems very unlikely.

  • August 19, 2008 at 7:03 pmKanna

    …omgosh….out of all the deaths of main characters, I have to still say that Euphies death was the saddest…to me.
    The ones (Nunally, Sayoko) who died in the FREYA explosion was way to abrupt to be sad.
    Rolos was alright, I don’t know, but it tied with the Shirley death for me.
    I still think that Euphies death was just…..*cries*….xD
    And I liked all those characters the same, I didn’t favor any of them more then the other.

  • August 19, 2008 at 7:19 pmDunames

    i would pretty much prefer lulu allow himself to be capture, put on trail and as a last word to the world on live international TV on his execution day, give 1 last command, “KILL URSELF” and fullfill his fathers wish for him as a good son that lulu is. then Lulu X CC (Adam and Eve) repopulate the world and Charles gets to be Kain, immortality as punish for the sins of killing ones brother….Bamm a mythical ending!

  • August 19, 2008 at 7:30 pmMerkava

    I am slightly surprised with the whole Milly x Lelouch thing, where exactly does Milly show AFFECTION for Lulu? If you have seen R1 and the picture books you ought to understand that Milly LOVES teasing ALL her friends (Like commenting on Kallen’s and Shirley’s Seductiveness) and the only reason she was so “interested” in Lulu was simply because of his reserved nature. If she had feelings for Lulu she wouldn’t have supported the Lulu x Shirley relationship as much as she did and would have actually tried to get Lulu’s valentine hat PERSONALLY. If you ask me, all she did was FORCE the relationship between Lulu and Shirley to hit off by forcing them into a relationship via the event. I honestly don’t think that she has any real romantic interest in any of her Ashford friends but rather views them as her family. As for her asking Lulu about her marriage, I just think it was her playing around since she is a rather self-assured woman (considering her physical appeal).

    IF there is going to be a pairing in Code Geass then I do think that the strongest possibility is Kallen X Lulu because although C.C. has feelings for Lelouch I think that she views the idea of relationship in a more “spiritual” form than any of the other characters. This is, most likely, due to her living as an immortal and being unable to know what “love” truly is (due to the fake love generated by her geass) until she met Lelouch, who genuinely cared about her. C.C. recognized the contrast behind Zero’s cold nature and Lelouch’s warmer heart (reason why she said that Lulu was too kind before loosing her memories), which have started to heavily conflict with one another after the incident with Euphemia, and probably cares for him more in line like a mother (of course she kissed him but she never seems to care when he’s around other women) because I THINK that all she wants is to feel loved and look after Lelouch. Also keep in mind that this could be related with C.C.’s still undisclosed past with Marianne (maybe she promised her?). So although she cares about Lulu I doubt that she really worries much about the idea of having to become intimate with him (as in lovers).

    Kallen, on the other hand, has shown that she’s willing to die for Lelouch and (like a poster already stated) would even turn her back on Japan (to a slight degree) if it meant saving Lulu. The anime also LOVES teasing about Kallen X Lulu (like with Shirley before she died) and I think it would be somewhat ridiculous to tease so much about them if the relationship weren’t going anywhere. Of course that doesn’t mean that there HAS to be a pairing (for all we know they could just leave the anime with no official pair and leave it to the fans to decide) but they have shown that there some strong affection between them. Even from the perspective of Lulu to Kallen, like when she was captured, Zero attacked the Chinesse out even against Diethard’s advice (which was the most logical) much to everyone’s surprise and delight and the whole, “Come with me to Ashford when this is all over.” and “Genuine” apologize between them. Of course I can understand how some people dislike the idea of Kallen X Lulu but eh… I think that most of us don’t watch Code Geass because of the “intriguing” love story.

    As for the events of these episodes… has anyone considered the standing of the Chinese on this? (mostly Xingke) because, from their perspective, they have no reason to dislike Zero, at all, considering that he saved their queen, exposed their corrupt ex-leaders, and did not try to force any marriages into the queen. There’s always the possibility that the Black Knights could end up splitting into a Pro-Zero faction and a Anti-Zero faction and outside of Xingke the Black Knights do not have any remarkable leaders (Tohdoh is good but he isn’t exactly on par with Zero or Xingke). So the possibilities are everywhere.

    It’s also worth noting how Suzaku has pretty much become like Zero (when he killed Euphemia), in which he decides to forcefully accept his destiny after the Geass takes away something important from both of them (and kills a few thousand people). Perhaps this could be the catalyst that could serve for Suzaku to finally understand Lelouch? Although, I see bad things happening with Suzaku in the short-term now that he seems somewhat unstable. I just hope he doesn’t get his upgraded Lancelot too soon or he might do something he will regret now that he’s so… like he is.

    Also it’s pretty obvious that Kallen will want to have a final reunion with Zero before things get any worst (if they can get) because she will want to know if his last words were simply out of pitty or if he really cares about her. So I wouldn’t be surprised if she helps C.C. escape and take her to Lulu as she searches for him. There is a lot Lulu can do with a Knight of Round level pilot like Kallen (and with a knightmare like the new Guren).

    Also about Schneizel, I don’t like him. Not because he had the Black Knights turn on Zero, but because of how he smiled on the previous episode when Suzaku fired FLEIA, which resulted in the death of HIS sister. I think it shows that there is a MUCH darker side to Schneizel that has not been explored yet. I doubt that he wanted to save Lulu because his efforts to stop Zero’s failed execution where non-existant.

  • August 19, 2008 at 8:07 pmWingZero zxt

    LOL at a few thousand!!! 10 million dead 25 mil casualties! i hope nunally really is dead! nothing against her i just ind that she ties lelouch to the past a bit to much and he needs to let go of his troubled past if he is to form any kind of half decent future! (Which will hopefully be told in the after story )

    As for the end of Code Geass as its so close (providing they dont Royally botch the ending like they did with FMA and Guren Lagann which i hated because it was a story where being the hero meant losing EVERYTHING RIGHT UP UNTIL THE VERY LAST FRAME! ) i will say that this is the greatest anime of all time and i certainly hope that they re release and retell this story over over and over not in a terrible way (obv.) but in a good way never letting it die like they have done with Dragonball/Z (1980′s til now)

    the reason why im posting like this so early is that since i found out after ep 13 that this was last series im preparing my self for the brutal blow of boredom that will result from the lack of code geass! usually i dont find out somthigs over til the episode before last and as a result i cry out NOOOOOOOOOO e.g. the last line by the narrator of gundam wing in english ended, “…And weapons known as mobile suits including the gundams [...time froze in my mind...] were never seen again” NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. ofcourse this was before i knew that gundam as a franchise was one of the longest running franchises and i would see gundams again!

    my predictions
    Suzakus gonna go crazy and start acting like Bradley on Steroids (he was funny to watch cos Everyone knew from the second he appaeared he was just there to die magnificently!) Kallen might just figure ou a way to take out a crazy Suzaku (she will say somthing that will make him re-evaluate) Kallen will talk to Suzaku personally after he stops being crazy they go and find lelouch in some coincidence orientated discovery! the three will go after emperor, beat him down and use ragnarok to help restore peace! Schniziel will end up on throne or dead (depending on how deep the facade of him beeing a good guy really goes) Japanese willget japan bck (after a series of defeats under Toudous leadership and Xingke pulling out!
    the UFN will crumble brittania will grind to a halt and we will be left with a fractal world remarkably resembling our own! Lelouch will shack-up with kallen in the middle of nowhere hide the guren and the remnants of the shinkirou in a mountain-like cave or somthing and Sunrise lied and there will be a series 3 (IM GENUINELY HOPING !)

    final death listr prediction
    Ikaruga bridge girls
    suzaku: dies in final confrontation with emperor
    Schniziel:if really is a bad guy/super bad not just marginally worse then lelouch
    Gino:Doing somthing noble though i do hate him
    Jeremiah: Hes to wierd to warrant him surviving

  • August 19, 2008 at 11:24 pmMoondoggiebuiscuit

    My ‘rents have watched Code Geass up until 18th episode. They blame Brittania’s poor handling of it’s subordinates and the “impending decadence of an Empire”. Haha. Like I care!….

  • August 20, 2008 at 5:42 amMax

    The writers did mentioned that Milly was secretly in love with Lelouch, which means that she doesn’t want it to be known by anyone else. I believe that the real Milly Ashford is a very private person who only allows a few people in her social circle. I feel that one of the reasons why the writers didn’t want to pair her up with Lelouch was because they had bigger plans for her character. In order for a Milly x Lelouch relationship to happen, Kallen, C.C., and Shirley must be eliminated from the list of potential love interest. I also believe that there is a side to Milly that might provide some interesting revelations into Lelouch’s past. I am certainly glad that the writers didn’t kill off her character. I certainly hope that she and Lelouch will meet again before the series ends.

  • August 20, 2008 at 6:02 amChino F

  • August 20, 2008 at 6:45 amMiki

    I think Lelouch is going to become more of a hero now, and suzaku will become a bit like an anti hero, the ending also shows lulu in white and suzaku in black so it’s very possible.

    Its sad that no one else but Lelouch himself will know that he DOES have a heart, because all the ‘miracles’ he did back in S1, I strongly believe, weren’t done because just to fuel his future ambitions. I’d like to believe that whatever Lelouch confessed to Suzaku back in episode 17 were only part of the truth, and that in fact, he really wanted to save people. I think that alot of characters in the story have misunderstood his motives in some part because Lelouch has never told anyone else what he really felt during those miracles. And the way he confessed to Suzaku, which was recorded, ultimately led to BK’s betrayal. Kallen will never know why Lelouch said such harh words to her, unless she questions herself in the future why she’s still alive.

    Predictions: for last episode (thats 25) ahahahaha… Lelouch = emperor + immortal + has geass both eyes and he can control it now (just like his father and remember what did V.V. told charles that lelouch is just like him), Schneizel = dead, charles = dead, they discovered that the FLEIA warhead is a “TELEPORTER” lol… why? look at the area of the explosion and what did you observed? its clean just dig a hole like a bowl and look at the surroundings they are ok and doesn’t have a scratch at all not like an atomic bomb that will destroy all not just the place where it explodes but it will destroy all around it… BK = reclaimed Japan, the true identity of ZERO revealed to the World, Suzaku = Alive + Knight of One + friendship with Lelouch still remains (your best friend is your worst enemy right?)… many more…. busy right now can’t say it all…

  • August 21, 2008 at 4:36 ammoondoggiebuiscuit

    Anyways how will Lulu kill the emperor now? He lost the BK, Kallen, Nunally, all of his allies, China, even Japan?

    I also thought that in the end he’ll take his father’s place and end up with Geass on both eyes. He resembles his father in mentality(i.e. killed his wife, fanatic patriotism, wanting world dominance, etc.)

  • August 21, 2008 at 6:00 amWingZero zxt

    indeed its amusing how they seem to have the same overall objective! Destroy and recreate the world!!!

  • August 21, 2008 at 9:09 pmSilentveil


    First off, if you are immortal …you lose the power of the Geass. It’s kind of the trade off, and you have to be powerful enough to become immortal, which Lelouche isn’t currently. IF that doesn’t change than he can’t become it …even less than Suzaku can gain immortality. He needs to have his geass grow strong enough.

    As for friendships, well that actually depends on Lelouche now, so, I don’t know.

    This is really interesting. I wonder what will happen to him now since he was abandoned and is now all alone. I bet the Black Nights will bed to be forgiven for what they have done to him and will want to restore the Black Nights as they were before. Or maybe Lelouch will just go on his own way and head toward The King of the Britanian nation and kill him. All I can do now is wait and see what he will do. all I’m doing right now is making up things cause they all could be possible ways for the next episode of

    Kallen is not going to let this go. She’s going to brood, I can assure you. She knows that Lelouch lied to protect her and what she does now will in some way end up helping Lelouch in his quest. She might actually get her brother to understand why betraying Zero was not a good move. Of course, she might just escape with the Guren and search out Lelouch or something. Who knows what she’ll do?

    C.C., well, unless something drastic happens I don’t think she’ll be the woman we all know and love any time soon.

    Kallen’s brother is dead. He’s never actually been in the series. I’m guessing that you mean Ougi who was friends with her brother.

  • August 24, 2008 at 1:40 amKalessin

    Wow. I think that I may actually understand how C.C. was talking to Marianne now. What if when she’s talking to people that have died, she’s talking to people in the World of C? From what little we’ve seen of the World of C of what little C.C. said about it, it looked like anyone from her past who is dead is there. There’s already another version of her floating around in there. Perhaps she can talk to the version of Marianne that’s in there along within anyone else she once knew who has since died.

    Of course, that probably wouldn’t explain how she seemed to be able to talk to V.V. since he wasn’t dead back in episode 19 of R1 when she seemed to be talking to him, but V.V. had special powers like C.C., so maybe that’s what allowed them to talk to each other.

    In either case, it seems like a plausible explanation to me. I got the idea from the latest updates here: http://koshimizu.livejournal.com/5369.html#cutid1 . It looks like we’ll probably find out what the deal with Marianne is/was within the next few episodes (but then again, there’s so few left that it can’t be far off regardless).

  • August 24, 2008 at 1:52 amKalessin

    Upon rereading my last post, I’m not sure that I was 100% clear I feel that I should probably clarify that the idea about how C.C. talks to Marianne came to me after reading the aforementioned page but that the page itself doesn’t claim anything of the sort. It just gives enough more information that it occurred to me after reading it. I’m unaware of any actual spoilers explaining anything about how C.C. was able to talk to Marianne.

    What I really should have said was that “I got the idea after reading the latest updates….”

    Kallen also knows he lied about them all being pawns so she would turn on him and it in turn saved her life by doing so. She will tell the rest of the black knights he said that to save her.

    The knights will talk it out and eventually be smart and want to hear Lulus side of the story. I also think he will prove he didnt use geass on them and they will realize what they are doing is what they wanted to do all along.

    Once they realize Toudou in particular that he went a little crazy because he lost Nunnaly and once he realizes Zero isnt perfect and can make mistakes. I think they’ll all be back on the same side again.

    I just thought of something Orange can just hit them all with his guass canceller and then say Hey do you feel different now? If they say no, then there you go, Zero didnt use them, case closed everything is back on track.
