Code Geass R2 ep 20

Let's put a smile on that face!

Let's put a smile on that face!

Intricate plot advancements and a lot of badassery!

So the episode begins with a small recap of Suzaku’s life until now. He reflects on his resolve to save people and his utter failure when killed like 35 million of them in the last episode. In the middle of Ground Zero is Nina, wondering aloud in that oh-so-innocently-cute voice whether all of this was actually her doing. Suzaku straight up tells it to her face, ‘Congrats…

...bitch, your experiment was a huge success!'

...bitch, your experiment was a huge success!

Now Code Geass is no stranger to plot twists, but even I was taken by surprise when Anya (Knight of Six) visits the amnesiac C.C. A familiar event occurs and we see them both inside an alternate dimension C.C’s consciousness. This is where Anya reveals herself to be Marianne, aka…

...Lelouch's mom!

...Lelouch's mom!

I’m not gonna go in depth here, suffice to say that something triggered the slumbering Geass power within Anya and she remembered who she was (and her real motives).

Cut to the Emperor (aka Lelouch’s dad), and we see him planning to activate Geass portals…

...all over the world.

...all over the world.

This will apparently trigger some cataclysmic event, ending the world as we they know it, thus bringing about Ragnarok.

Back to the unsuspecting world, and Schneizel’s newly “acquired” Order of the Black Knights, they decide to pronounce Lelouch’s death since they can’t find him. As always, the lovely Milly is on hand to anounce this …

...good news

...good news.

We’re then shown the Order of the Back Stabbers Black Knights, moaning and bitching about how Lelouch used them all as pawns. I understand where these guys are coming from, but damn them all for not realising how far they have come thanks to Lelouch, used or not! He didn’t actually use Geass on them, and even if he did, it was out of no ill intent. Geass was a tool, and it’s effective usage led them to their victory. Well, almost. Anyways, the point I’m trying to make is that these bastards are too ungrateful.

Moving along, to make a long story short, Schneizel announces a Coup d’etat in order to take the…

...Emperor-ship.

...Emperor-ship.

The whole ordeal was sort of triggered when Suzaku wanted to take the responsibility for deploying the FLEIA and therefore to be promoted to the Knight of One. I suppose Suzaku understood that, to some extent, all of this was actually the Emperor’s fault all along. So he simply wants revenge. Schneizel too, realising his fathers intentions, was more than happy to grant Suzaku his wish of killing the Emperor.

Now this is all nice and good, and Suzaku is on his merry way to assassinate the Emperor, except that Lord Waldstein (Knight of the One) is there to defend him. Have you ever wondered the difference between a Knight of Seven and One, besides the obvious power gap? It’s their…

...friggin' swords!

...friggin swords!

Before Waldstein could kick Suzaku’s ass any further, Lelouch finally makes his…

...badass comeback!

...badass comeback!

Once again his cunning plan works smoothly as he creates panic and confusion between the Coup and his Geass’ed soldiers. Before Waldstein could attack lelouch however, Marianne Anya attacks his Knightmare feigning confusion. This was an obvious trick played by the two new BFF

...partners in crime.

...partners in crime.

At the end of the episode, when the Emperor enters the alternate ‘Geass’ dimension busy summoning the Gods, Lelouch enters the stage. Laughing at his feeble attempt to thwart him, his father asks how Lelouch plans to defeat him, since all physical means have been exhausted (in previous episodes). So Lelouch does the most logical thing and blows up the entrance, effectively sealing them both inside for eternity! Although he puts it in a more eloquent way, what Lelouch basically means to tell his father is…

...pwned bitch!

...pwned bitch!

And on that exciting note…

...see you next deculture!
