Code Geass R2
Everything is just fine

Shit hits the fan. Big time. This is not your usual run-of-the-mill rotary cooling device-feces collision; it’s more like if Godzilla takes the mother of all dump on an Airbus A380’s Engine Alliance GP7000 turbofan jet engine, while you, the unfortunate witness, are standing literally five metres away minding your own business one moment and covered with radioactive lizard waste the next.

That said, it is a pretty good episode. The emo level is higher than 9000 pale teenagers simultaneously slitting their wrists the wrong way.

Summary

There’s actually nothing much to summarize in this episode. I mean, nothing of great importance really happens.

Code Geass R2
“OBJECTION!”

Except maybe for the tiny unimportant fact that everyone in the Black Knights now knows that Lelouch is a Britannian prince who had been using them as pawns in a giant game of chess, and that Lelouch is is clearly cheating because no one, not even the king of Britannia who invented the damn game, is allowed to have that many pawns in chess.

And oh yes, Rolo finally dies. But now that he is dead, I sort of miss him. I mean, he was the most annoying character in the entire show, but he did save Lelouch. Also he killed Shirley, which is a job well done in my book. Now that C.C. is somewhat out of the picture with her memory loss and Nunnally has apparently bitten the dust, Kallen is home free! You go girl!

Code Geass R2
Kallen, it’s your turn to shine!

I digress. Yeah, Rolo is dead. Oh well. The way he died sort of makes up for all his past annoyance, so I do feel kind of sad now. But it’s okay. He will live on in our memories and yaoi doujinshi.

He lived pretty long for a character introduced to die

Thoughts

This episode is seriously good. Lelouch has finally fulfilled the prophecy of the power of Geass and lost everything that is important to him. As I’ve said before, Lelouch loses the most when he tries to be good. If he were completely ruthless and evil, he’d have taken over the world three times over by now with his Geass. It’s this alternating between heartless bastard and self-sacrificing nice guy that messes up all his plans.

Let’s see what he has lost so far…

Nunnally is either dead or trapped in an alternate universe where she is probably being thoroughly violated by sixth dimensional tentacle beings.

Lelouch can take C.C. and open up a maid cafe

C.C. has lost her tsundere personality and is more like a submissive pet now. Lelouch is deeply masochistic and therefore cannot possibly love someone who doesn’t spend all her time putting him down.

Shirley is dead and given a proper burial so that she cannot ever rise from the dead Sunrise style. Good grief.

Code Geass R2
Don’t be pussies, guys. This guy sounds legit

The Black Knights, a bunch of mindless drones who will believe anything, have turned against Zero in a blink of an eye without much serious consideration.

What Lelouch has left:

His life. This is an important thing because without it he pretty much can’t survive.

His campy outfit. It gives him stat boosts, which will be crucial when he has to both tank and heal while fighting the final instance boss.

Code Geass R2

Jeremiah and maybe Suzaku if he doesn’t turn batshit crazy. Woot yaoi fan fiction.

Code Geass R2
“I will protect Zero with my bosoms”

Kallen’s undying love. He should just elope with her and raise a family in some faraway land, like Hokkaido.

And Milly! Yes I can see it now. This is so going to be the final ending!

It’s not fun to get caught in a Singaporean tropical rainstorm. Also, I will probably be late in my postings for the next three months or so due to real-life situations that must be attended to.
