She didn't ask that he be acquitted, she asked that he be given a chance to explain himself. Even murderers get trials, no matter how obvious the outcome (unless of course they get themselves killed in the act, but this isn't the case here).

letting someone try and explain themselves is the basic princeple of any justice system
and that was all that she was asking for (that they reserve judgment until they heard his side)
nothing wrong with that

and what does kallen have to be excused FOR pray tell
asking that the guy who led them for a long time and who they are about to kill be given the same rights we give murderes and rapists
keep in mind that he isnt CONVICTED OF ANYTHING
he is accused
and the ones accusing him are doing so based on evidence provided by HIS ENEMIES

I can't help facepalming at this discussion...
Hadn't it been for Kallen our protagonist would be dead
or Rolo would have appeared earlier.
End of the story.

As for Kallen's question, we would never know which answer she wanted but definately not the one Lelouch gave her.

She got her answer just way late.
Why else would she be crying and shouting like that.
(I know there are other reasons, just being a fangirl.)

But are they wrong? It's files of the people he geassed as I recalled Jeremiah counts since he was geassed.

Dying in vain is more pitiful

I think we all know that the Black Knights even before weren't exactly "knights" in the sense. But their human for the most part and some even regret their actions (trust me I'm not trying to defend them) but like most organizations they hold a standard and regardless what the slaugher was for in their eyes if it wasn't beneficial for Japan then it was heinous.

True, I'll give you that, but what could of he had said that could made the situation any better since the most important members were already at odds with Zero and only sought Japan's freedom as retribution for putting up with it , in a way Lelouch dug his own hole and Schneizel push him in.

No, you are actually right here. This is the reason. Taking into account the scene in episode 22 as well.
We can't always hide the truth behind our fingers in fear that people that do not support the pairing come and jump down to our throats.
Especially when it is being confirmed more or less from the staff.

The SAZ incident could simply be explained in that Lelouch had to make the best out of a bad situation, namely in this case harness the outrage of the Japanese populace towards taking down Brittania. I really don't think Lelouch could have explained what really happened. Too farfetched.

Okay I'm gonna say this one more time; What could Lelouch or Kallen say that could be acceptable? Nothing! Giving someone a chance to speak is the same as trying to acquit them of their crimes since Kallen knew about geass and the SAZ incident but put her goal and priorities over that which is to free Japan and in order to do that she must protect Lelouch, so she kept that a secret from the lack Knights since none of them would of agreed to continue the fight.

Whatever floats your boat (it's not just with kalulu by the way and in alot of incidents people could care less since nobody won except Nunnally)

I thought you meant the whole question including Turn 22.

In some cases they are (Katase, second half of Shirley's, Jeremiah's loyalty concerns), but even in the obvious cases (fire alarm mall guy), it's still them just correlating strange behavior and suspected Zero involvement. It's hardly proof, especially when you actually read it.

Lelouch is human, too, but god forbid they consider giving him a chance to tell his side just because he's far better at what he does than they ever will be. As Tamaki also points out during the conversation, that tape implicating Lelouch could have been faked, as Sayoko demonstrates quite well. When it comes down to it, Ohgi had already made up his mind (before even seeing Schenizel, mind you) and got the others on board.

I'll agree that Lelouch dug his own hole, but that doesn't excuse how they acted. The point is they didn't give him a chance to speak period. Giving someone a chance to speak is their right as a person, guilty or innocent. Britannia may not follow this principle, but you would expect the Black Knights to. They jumped straight to the execution. Their behavior would be reasonable if they had at least let him incriminate himself (granted, he did anyway, but only because Kallen bought him the time to do so), but they didn't. As for those seeking Japan's freedom, that just makes them short-sighted fools who were using Zero and yet complain about the very same after he's gone.

Except it is not about "winning". It is about stating something that has been confirmed from the staff and people think it is a flying elephant. No so-called-ship "won" in the end anyway but let's not take this here.

Oh and btw, "human rights" everyone? Let someone else tell his side of "truth" and then decide if he was "wrong" or "right". It is by the book, whether you like it or not. Even if the possibilities are all against him.

As I said before, it gets really sulky if you consider that her key-question was never openly answered. It's not that we can't figure sth out, but HELL, we need sth to shut others up. <-rude, read at your own risk.

LOL, I've read the recent NTR (New Type Romance) rankings...Shirley moments are pretty high in the "CG boohoo/bawling moments".

I saw it as a list of people he geassed and never really sought for the details (guess that's what the BK should of done)

Yes Lelouch is human but he himself knew he couldn't get out of this situation regardless. "Could of" mind you but wasn't (not like Tamaki's opinion matters anyway). Ohgi's human too and if a lover is caught in the conflict you'll stick up for him/her regardless and it's pretty much a given that Villeta wouldn't lie to Ohgi given all she's been through plus Diethard scheming to keep them quiet didn't win him over as well.

Yes Yes it's agreed that the Black Knights are full of fail and the only basis I can defend them by is that they panicked and really wasn't thinking it through (which they should of done) and dug a hole so deep even Kaguya couldn't get them out of it.

That something was never needed actually, cause there is R2 development that is obvious but i guess when a group is welcoming something official with open arms, then it is rational for the other group to get itchy about it.

As for Shirley, no surprise. She was one of the most tragic charas in the show, but this is not the thread.

Whether it was right or wrong of them is an open shut case. Would it of made a difference is another story.
