There are very few shows that would start a fanservice episode with chanting to a messianic terrorist, but that’s just how Code Geass likes to do things. This was a very effective scene in showing how much Lelouch as the order wrapped around his little finger. Even the guys who know they’re being used can’t do anything to stop him. Of course, I fully expect this to lead to a “you’re no better than the Emperor” scene at some point in the future, or even better “you and I are not so different.”
You could cut the sexual tension with a knife. Suzaku’s big return was very effective, especially with the nice recap between the two. Seeing the two act so sweet to each other is just sickening, but part of our enjoyment as viewers is knowing how much both want to kill each other.
God, I’ve missed Millay. Still the best side-character, bar none.
The Rollo-Lelouch relationship is getting a bit creepy, and by a bit I mean a lot. Sexually confused Rollo is the last thing this show needs. It’s also kind of weird how adeptly Lelouch can not only manipulate members of the fairer sex, but also every male around him. Just look at Diethard’s mancrush. Really makes you wonder how Lelouch learned all of this, and how thankful I am not to be in his head.
Why can’t I have teacher’s like that?! Why can’t I have clubs like that?! Why must you mock me with your fantasies Japan?!
Take me to your Pizza, Chachamaru.
I swear Kallen’s ass has gotten more screen time than several important side-characters. I’m looking at you, Diethard, Lakshata, Lloyd, Sayoko, Kaguya, Cornelia, etc.
I AM SHOCKED, SHOCKED by these developments. Well, not really, since whenever the spoilers came out everybody seemed to guess Nunally was the new governor instantly, and how flawlessly the idea would screw Lelouch appeared to make it more likely. It will be very interesting to see how Lelouch reacts to this, and next episode he’s already staging a rescue operation, which other spoilers state will end in tragedy. Personally, I want them to kill Nunally off, just so we can get uber, cold-blooded bad guy Lelouch who butchers every Britannian around him, but that may be a bit unlikely. Because CG loves its cliffhangers, we’ll all just have to wait till next week to see what happens. (Where I’ll probably be proven wrong. Again.)
