Everybody that knows Lulu has a geass knows he is zero, and since Zero has popped up, they know Lulu already regain his memory. They were just playing the part about Lulu not really memory who he is for other people's sake.

This plan, whether it is Suzaku's plan or not, is great in a sense that it's similar to the plan Euphie comes up with - can you see Nunally doing "nasty" thing to the people in Area 11? No, and if she does have any power at all, she would probably start treating them better, making the need for eleven to fight less. Lulu now cannot use his old "let's kill the governor" plot, because I really don't think killing Nanally is on Lulu's book yet. All this will also help keep Nanally alive, since the Emperor is known for his "unconditional love" for his children.

This phone call is also great in the sense that do Lulu lies even to his sister, when he claim he would not do? Suzaku know he is lying through his teeth, and he is betting he either cannot do it to Nanally or would destroy Nanally's impression of him. It is evil, but I think it helps Lulu to decide whether he can really do all the bad things to achieve what he really want to do.

I agreed that they do need an episode like this now and then, however I think there was too much fan-service.
Zero could have done a speech, but really what could he have said? How could he explained that he abandoned them? Seeing him make excuses as the leader would destroy his image in my opinion

There can never be too much fan-service

lord kururugi..... uh uh uh. Suzaku has grown quite a bit since the beginning of Code geass. And he can also act as if he doesnt know lelouch is zero (to the eyes of the student coucil at least).

Oh suzaku you are much smarter and more evil than I though. Frankly I find his blank expression when lelouch gets nunnaly on the phone way the most evil expression on a character in this show. And I like that much better than what he was in S1 (but I would still like to see him scream in pain and agony).

Well played Suzaku. Well played. Wonder if Lelouch is gonna give himself away or not. Well things have been going a little too well for Lelouch lately. Nice to see him squirm a bit.

Bah, I hope Rolo lied about his weakness as a contingency against Lelouch should he be lying and planning to move against him later, which he is >_>

i highly doubt that rollo has the wisdom to do that, he has been a hitman doing mission as methodically as a robot his whole life. he is stuggling to grab and hold on the first hand that is lend toward him to be recognize as a human being and a familly member (in this case lelouch's hand)

No, actually I think there is a high possibility he did lie about it, given how sketchy he was still about the whole thing when he was thinking, and the way he was holding that knife. It would be a great twist as well... <_<

Tristan's mecha action is simply awesome... Can't wait to see Mordred's! Probably they'll be shown in their full glory next week.

Although I can't help thinking OMG!! It's like Kyrios with Fangu!!!

Wasn't he speaking about Tristan?

oh lol I was thinking Mordred. The Knights have some stellar mechs though.

Tristan, Mordred, Lancelot 2.0, and Guilford's custom Lancelot.

The Order has Gurren MkII, if Rolo still has possession, the Vincent, Toudou's custom Gekka, and the Chinese Federation mech.

Great episode.

I wonder what's going to happen to Viletta.

Suzaku got Lelouch on a good spot, but I don't see the short term consequences. He already knows, along with many other people, the entire story behind Lelouch's reign as the leader of the Black Order, Geass, background, etc. etc.
But Nunnally coming back is a great move! Raises a whole lot of questions in my head (adding to the previous pile) about Emperor and his family, V.V., and generally the way things are.

Honestly speaking, Rollo has not fully formed his own state, but he's slowly getting there with the help of Lelouch. Besides, I don't see the point in him telling Lelouch his Geass weakness, since it wouldn't do him any good anyways. But I'd have to stick with him being innocent at the moment, not really planning to backstab Lelouch (yet?)

Who knows..

Oh yah, I was talking about Tristan... hehe. It seems like Tristan's Slash Harken doesn't use any wire like other Knightmares, but flies by itself and manouverable like Fangu..

I'll add two more: done right!

Also, what kind of Britannian magic allows a mascot to change facial expressions????

Pay close attention to the mascot:

Clearly they stole some of Sousuke Sagara's Bonta-kun Arm Slave technology.

The episode was quite good, we even got to see more of the KoR. And some very funny scenes.

And at the end of the episode briks were shat.

And Lelouch can't even go like "Holy crap SIS!!1!" because then Suzaku would know he got his memories back, but can Lelouch be could to the only person that really matters to him?
