Well, this should be a good episode.

Introduction of the Vincent, Zero's comeback speech, and some answers on what happened a year ago.

What? Things got a little out there last time before the episode actually aired, though part of that I attribute to the fact that the show was finally starting again and people were just excited.

Certainly, I begin to think that Episode Threads for Code Geass should be created the latest possible.
I still think letting it open for public for few hours would be nice enough to discuss about expectations, but if things are oveboard, it will be bluntly made just few moment (or even at the right time) before the episode actually airs.

Please do not make any trend fest like in the previous thread (such like episode airs at X:00 for me!) otherwise, delete or lock thread will ensue.
Thank you.

Alright then. Well, most of this episode will probably be about Lelouch and the others getting out of the tower though we'll also get some more scenes with Li from the looks of things. The very end will probably be Zero's speech along with reactions from various people like the Order members around him, the ones currently in hiding (Diethard will probably have a look of glee), Suzaku, the Emperor maybe though I don't think he watches television, Guildford, and maybe some of the students at Ashford.

This episode might also feature some action with the Lancelot as well as an explanation on what happened last year.

I suppose a lot of that excitement will still remain, barely below the surface, but I hope that things will settle down a bit this time around.

Now, what do I expect? A brief review of the events after last season's finale, if possible from Zero's point of view (until he lost his memory, so it's not exactly going to be long), and a little (a comment or two) more information on the one year time jump, probably from the perspective of the other characters.

Of course, the episode will have to deal with current events as well, especially the escape from the Tower, the battle with the incoming troops as seen during the preview, what Suzaku is doing and so forth, but I think it can find the time to give us those extra details as well.

I'm not asking for an answer to everything, by the way. Just more information than we already have, including a bit of confirmation or expansion for certain spoilers.

That's pretty much all I have to say until the episode airs, so nothing more from me here until then.

always sort of amazing that the show moves at this kind of speed. I mean looking at just the preview from last week, we've got Lelouch and co. fighting off Britannia and eventually the Vincent, Lee starting some more incidents with the Britannians (I keep wondering if somehow he's already in cahoots with the Order. Though that makes the timing seem almost too good) Some flashback to Suzaku and the Emperor meeting, and then we've still got about 3-5 minutes for Zero to make some kind of triumphant return. >_>

Yeah, this episode is definitely looking like a very good one, I think it will make for quite a wild ride.

Does anyone know who wrote this episode? Is it Okouchi?

I'm glad that things are moving pretty fast though I worry we'll run into some of the pacing problems we had in season 1 at times.

@Klashikari - That just excitment and whatnot from the premier. lol I doubt much of that will happen this time.

Hopefully this episode will answer some important answers such as what happened with Lelouch, the Emperor, and Suzaku. I wonder if they will also conclude the cave dilema.

Also, I wonder if they will begin to show Kallen's feelings toward Lelouch since they're all together again and since she's wearing his academy jacket.

An information thick episode indeed.

Off topic - Anyway looking foward to some golf before R2

Does she have to have feelings for him? Either way, this will probably be one of those little signs they are giving us, though it could also be them giving each girl some scenes. It depends on how that whole thing goes down though.

True, this could either be one of these big scene where she shows some kind of emotion, or the battle to escape will take precidence and the whole emotion thing comes another episode like the aftermath or even in EP5.

We've got indicators of what happened, what with the 'present' scene in the extended version of the preview for Episode 2 >_>

Of the episode or the series? The preview shows season 1 Suzaku with Lelouch restrained in front of the Emperor. I'd say we are going to get most of what happened this episode.

Hmm actually my guess its going to play out like Episode 2 in season 1 just like with ep 1. In other words fighting and battles might ensue for most of the episode with a cliff hanger like ending with Lelouch either

a) going into some flashblack explaining what happend

or

B) The new Governor get a pistol shot in the head. Which is OK by me since I hate the racist biggot.

Well, a lot of it will certainly be battles though we are going to get info on what happened a year ago as well as Zero's reintroduction.

I think the excitement is still there it's just people know too many unimportant statements were made in the first episode.

What I think will happen is a big insight into Kallen and Suzaku's possible personality changes, the whole scene of what happened at the Mexican standoff. I really don't want to say much else in case I turn out to be right, which might take some of the entertainment away.
