his vision was precise and at the beginning he didn't want it worlwide like now. a nation ll have be enough but he just have decide to make it worldwide through his despair. In the end, unite ll mean nothing concrete really and can even be worse that at ep 1
Meh, we'll see. I have faith he'll have everything planned out accordingly to compensate for whatever to make this type of peace last in preparation for his fall

Whats drama to you. How dramatic must this show get before you see the drama. This is full of drama, suspension, controversy, theatrics. I've seen plenty of drama, both in anime and real life, and this was very dramatic. I mean, What do you want to see?

Really now... I don't know how a series goes from damn good to near rediculous in one episode, but it sure happened here. I had more akward "they are not really doing this" chuckles in this episode alone than the rest of season 1 and 2 combined...

There is a difference between drama and MELOdrama.

To understand Lelouch's actions one must think like him, which is impossible cause I'm no freaking genius. Or you could ask the writting staff but thats too much of a spoiler.

Agreed, I was totally nervous to get back to my computer to download this episode all the while playing D&D.

I watched the episode and one thing came to my mind: It feels very much like Gundam 00 when CB tried to make the world an enemy and reunite them as one faction. CG seems to follow that path somewhat until I saw Damocles and thought, "Is this GSD again?" Many of you think Lelouch and Suzaku are mad, but there better be a reason for Zero Requiem initiated. Nunnally is alive after all and said that she is Lelouch and Suzaku's enemy. Capturing Nina is important to Lelouch because he wants to know a way to prevent FLEIA from mass-bombing nations into craters.

It's Lelouch & Suzaku vs. Schneizel & Nunnally. Jeremiah seems to have an important role near the end since he is the only one who has Geass Canceller and can make Nunnally see what her brother went through and what she did for the world. Next episode preview is labeled "Schneizel's Mask", which probably shows his true colors and intentions. A "wolf-in-sheep's-clothing" seems suitable for the White Prince.

That's why we throw in the X-factor of Nunnally/Schneziel to make things interesting of course
Captain Falcon is being compared to Suzaku! Captain Falcon is not pleased

Latest Theories? Theories are law, they have not been proven absolutely true. Captain Falcon does not follow something that is not true, until it becomes to true. that is the Meaning of Truth, it becomes truth only when it happens.

Lelouch would most likely not make the world a better place, whatever intentions that he has. He always seems to want things to go his way as reflect by the Geass: to make a person completely obedient. The power of Kings. He is rather temperamental when he strikes CC when she was trying to give him a slice of pizza which she had saved for him. He probably has never seen democracy as a Brittanian.

Yes, that's the way he has always been portrayed. Honestly, did anyone not shit bricks thinking that one of the Prime Evils had been introduced after having seen him appear in Stage 18?

Battles that go back and forth between two opponents of actual worth.

See Zeta Gundam for the best example, it wasn't just a bunch of two minute long battles.

Either that or embrace its Super Robot battles, and start making the characters more stylish. The best example of that would be G Gundam.

Instead we got Suzaku who since im a straight male have no interest in watching since I have seen him fight about 20-30 times before, and since their is no battle choreography its boring to watch.

I have said it about 20 times in this thread, this is a series where everyone is going through the motions just like SEED Destiny.

The problem is that while Lelouch has style no one else does, and so it must have the story pull all of the load and its not doing that due to the complete lack of character focus on anyone other than Lelouch, C.C, Suzaku (who its wasted on), and Kallen. So instead of having the brave Samurai Todoh, who will not let either Lelouch or Schneizel get in his way we get a lot of people talking abpout how their scared of Lelouch something we have heard a million times already.

You mean the first season when he used the Avalon to blast Euphie, Lelouch, Suzaku, and Kallen to the Geass Ruins? It does feel like deja vu and Schneizel probably doesn't care about Euphie or anybody for that matter. Stage 19 was awesome when Lelouch and Kallen stole the Gawain. The White Prince doesn't care at this point and only wants to get results no matter what the cost.

Yes, that was the scene I was referring to (the one in Stage 18). It was so well directed. All the cuts to the different characters, Schneizel's cold smile, and how the Gawain's red beams of death emerged behind C.C.'s onlooking eyes. R2 has not been sporting many scenes like that to be honest.
