“Forgive me. This is my sin for letting you all run rampant. Therefore, the genealogy of Geass shall end here. That’s perhaps…Lelouch and my…”
A flashback of Marianne, C.C., Charles, and V.V. occurs. The two males talk of killing the gods and destroying the world’s lies.
Back in the building where Shirley died, Rolo boasts of killing her to protect Lelouch’s secret. Lelouch surprisingly thanks his fake brother and tells him he’ll annahilate the Order using the Black Knights.
Somewhere in a secret base in China, V.V. comments to an imprisoned Cornelia that the sibling relationship is the most beautiful one in the world.
A few hours after, Suzaku learns of Shirley’s death. The doctors believe that she committed suicide. Later, Suzaku, Gino, Anya, and the rest of the Ashford students attend Shirley’s funeral. Even Nina got depressed.
Inside her room, C.C. talks with her imaginary friend while eating pizza. Lelouch contacts her, telling her to deploy Team Zero and destroy the Order once and for all. C.C. tells him that the people working there are just researchers of Geass, but he won’t listen to her. He believes that by destroying the Order, he can atone for all of his sins.
Back in the Order’s secret base, Lelouch contacts V.V. via Jeremiah’s communications network. V.V.’s men deduce that Lelouch’s transmitting from Ashford, considering that the background’s that of his room. V.V. tells him that by the time he arrives at the Order’s base, they would’ve moved to their next location. Check. Black Knights’ knigtmares arrive inside the Order as Lelouch’s fake room collapses, revealing that he’s been standing before the base all the time. Chaos ensues as the Black Knights mercilessly slaughters the unarmed researchers. V.V. orders his men to move all the research data into the Eject Dart.
In Area 11, Nunnally and Kallen’s talk gets interrupted by an emo Suzaku. Suzaku tells Kallen that Lelouch made Shirley kill herself. He then shows a box of Refrain, which frightens Kallen. In other news, Bartley, one of Prince Clovis’ faithful men, finally dies. He regrets offering C.C. to His Majesty. In Ikaruga, Diethard tells Toudou, Li, and co. that Zero’s doing a covert operation. Diethard then tells Sayoko to shadow Ohgi since he’s been acting strange lately. Back in Area 11, Villetta tries to book a diplomatic flight.
In the Order’s base, a kid uses his geass to control one of the Black Knights. Rolo arrives and slashes them in cold blood. Siegfreid, the orange-top-sheped knightmare shows and brings the battle outside. Everyone gets pwned. Lelouch orders Rolo to get his unit on Seigfried because he has a plan. Lelouch reveals his plan of activating the bomb set on Rolo’s Vincent which will kill both Rolo and V.V., but before that happens, Cornelia aims a knightmare’s cannon at Seigfreid’s weak points. Lelouch obliterates Seigfreid once and for all while doing a combo attack with Cornelia.
C.C. destroys the Eject Dart and its passengers. A beaten V.V. crawls at the ground as Charles arrives through the gateway. Lelouch follows V.V. with his Shinkirou. A trap activates and Lelouch arrives into the Emperor’s weapon-that-can-kill-gods. Lelouch and and Emperor Charles finally face off.
This is a fast-paced episode with a few hints on the past of C.C., Emperor Charles, and V.V. The action finally picks up this time as Lelouch defeats one of the Big Bads of Code Geass.
Note: Sibling power. Lol, and I’m really surprised at Suzaku resorting to drugging Kallen. The horror! I was hoping that Rolo gets the end he deserves, but it seems he’ll have a few more episodes to live.
I’m still surprised Lelouch attacked the Order just after Shirley’s death. I hope the writers will continue this pace onwards.
