Poor Lelouch has lost his sole purpose in life, rejected by his loli sister whom he secretly lusts for. But it’s all right because he manages to find a new one by the end of the episode. Hurray!
Nunnally uses her inauguration ceremony to declare her intention to recreate the Japan Special Administrative Region, apparently without having previously consulted anyone else. Rich Britannian nobilities who gather to fawn and have a spot of tea are unpleasantly surprised, and monocles start to fly.
Japanese folks and the Black Knights don’t trust Nunnally because everyone remembers what happened the last time a young princess tried something similar.
Lelouch is in a state of despair and turns to drugs. Kallen tries to snap him out of it, and gets raped for it. (Almost.) I think she would’ve been unable to resist if he had been wearing his mask.
Although they do not know what is wrong with Lelouch, the student council gang decides to cheer him up with a firework display. Lelouch is reminded of what is truly important in life, etc. and regains the will to fight! (Sort of.)
In the meantime, Britannia Navy has surrounded the cargo ship that conceals the Black Knight’s submarine. Oh no! Will Zero appear in time to save the day again? (Yes.)
I shall not go into details about the battle. It’s probably the most exciting part of the episode, although it’s not that great either.
Sorry for this boring post. I am not particularly compelled by this episode to say much. It’s not a bad episode per se, but it’s not particularly interesting either. The ending is sort of a twist, but other than that the whole episode is quite predictable. It’s a necessary set-up for the story to move on, I guess.
Judging by the preview, I think the next episode ought to give a greater kick.
