How Lelouch handles everything with Nunnally will be interesting to watch as well as some lead ups into what will probably be an arc in China. Probably some more romantic development with Kallen since he has to talk with her about what happened in 7.

dont think there will be any romatic advancements in this ep
Most likely just gonna involve the order plotting to get lelouch alone with nunnally and suzaku. Thinks that will lead up to the last 5 mins of him revealing things to nunnally and striking some deals which leads him to china while nunnally controls area 11 for the meantime.

also i have seen that you are pretty obsessed with the kallen x lelouch relationship but for those expecting anything to happen with that, i wouldnt get my hopes up since its was repeated throughout season 1 his geass would lead him to isolation with CC. Not saying he will have anything rommatic with her, but it was a recuring theme throughout season 1. I believe its stated in ep 1 and ep 23 when he killed euphie.

yeah i want to see what the OotBK are up to (from the preview - smoke), and see who/how the voice actor for the new chinese girl is, so far the chinese eunuch has had a very very annoying voice

The sad thing is that Dann's a LelouchxC.C fan. He just doesn't think that that relationship is possible, and think that LelouchxKallen is more likely, even though he doesn't like it.

I'm seriously wondering what kind of plan Lelouch has thouhg, as I'm sure ther's no way he's just gonna make the OotBK join the SAZ, with no plan behind it. I also wonder what kind of thing he's gonna ask Suzaku for in exchange for supporting the SAZ.

I'm not obsessed. I'm not even a fan of the pairing. I prefer C.C..

They'll probably all have those really irritating high pitched voice.

And we'll also have a lot of speculating going on since we don't have an episode next week.

Wow do we really need 500 posts before the ep starts? These threads come out too early...Yeah I'm compounding the problem by responding, but since we've seen the mecha-ep, the fanservice-ep, the strategy-ep, I hope we get another Lulu being backed into a corner and having to think under pressure how to make a bad situation go in his favor...

As for the LuLu x Kallen thing, wake me when a show like this ever actually gives the audience what they want in-terms of this ...

It's not impossible, just implausible

I feel the same way though(though I do prefer LelouchxC.C) just look at my avi

I'm actually hoping that Kaguya succeds in her plans.

I think the eunuch voices are purposefully annoying, allows us to hate them like Li

Well the Eunuches were Castrated. I was kind of expecting those kind of creepy voices.

Depends on whether you actually want development for them. I'd prefer C.C., but that sure as hell isn't happening.

Meh, it happens. It'll be worse if we have to deal with another wait like 24-25 though.

They're Eunuchs. They're supposed to sound like that. And given that they are all just parasites, you aren't supposed to like them.

That's what a Eunuch is. Did you think it was a title or something?

It hasn't been said in the show, but all Eunuches have to be Castrated before they are allowed to enter the Emperor's Castle, it's was a standard Chinese practice for Eunuches. Plus Eunuch mean Castrated Official, or something of the sort.

yeah hehe, i thought they were special advisors or something (high position)...so why castration?
- just to prevent them from doing anything obscene (rape) in the castle?

lol i know but you always talk about it in nearly every post so thats why i say youre obsessed.
Well didnt they say they were gonna have lelouch develop a romatic interest this season? I think thats why there is alot of speculation, right?

I dont think lelouch is gonna be backed into a courner since he found his new resolve last ep. This ep i think we will see him put a new plan into action, but i am almost positive he is just gonna have some trick to get himself alone with nunnally and suzaku to strike some sort of deal so he can head to china.

Enuchs are guys who had their "manhood" cut off before they reached puberty.

As a result, they never grow an "Adam's apple" so their voice doesn't deepen.

In medieval times if I recall correctly choirboys were castrated so they could maintain their voices though the pope put an end to that later on.

So they don't mess with the Emperor's wife.
