Retrocaustic: Code Geass – Episode 4

Code Geass is stupid. But how stupid? Let’s find out together.

Said your mother when you were conceived.

Said your mother when you were conceived.

Episode IV – The Usual Idiots

  • Oh yay, a slightly different recap. Praise Hojo.
    • This “mysterious” girl will definitely not come back into the story.
  • It may or may not surprise you that “Geass,” referring to the Irish folklore taboo, is actually spelled “geis” or “geas” and pronounced like “gehsh.” I’m going to take a wild gehsh and assume the Japanese writers looked it up on Moogle, read it once phonetically in Engrish, and then ran with it instead of taking all of twenty seconds to confirm its pronunciation, like I did.
    • Anyone want to fight me on this assertion? Anyone? The starting wager is set at one trillion dollars.
  • Lelouch’s grand plan is to use an unreliable magical power that can be used exactly once on a person to destroy an entire world empire inhabited and run by billions of people. Call me skeptical, but I don’t think it’s gonna work.
    • Besides, it’s totally warranted to want to cause untold death, upheaval, destruction, and chaos by destroying an empire just so you can avenge your mother and make a world where your sister can be happy, even though she already is happy and Lelouch knows that only three-ish people were responsible for his mother’s death.
      • What an admirable, admirable protagonist.
    • Why is Nunnally not in counseling? What twelve-year-old girl would be well-adjusted after being held by the bullet-ridden, blood-soaked corpse of her mother?
  • The Emperor is not fat. He’s big-boned.
    • What a surprise the Emperor is not the end of the plot. Lelouch has not considered the possibility that there might be other magical girls out there giving other people magical powers.
      • Genius.
  • Oh Suzaaaaaaaaaaku, my darling. Look at how well the Britannimericans are treating you.
    • Why is Jeremiah even bothering with this fake interrogation? He knows MSGT had nothing to do with his death.  I can’t imagine he gives two shits about due process or anything.
      • Uh, hey, Jeremiah, I have some issue with your plan that I just thought of. They’re nothing big, but just hear me out:
        • Lloyd, a Britannimerican noble who undoubtedly outranks your retarded ass, can put MSGT in his lab at precisely the time you say he killed Prince Clovis with multiple witnesses to back him up. There is no way anyone besides you believes in this sham accusation, so there is no way this can advance your position politically.
        • Executing an obvious scapegoat–particularly the son of the last free leader of Japan–for blatantly racist motivations will not endear the Japanese populace to you and might cause further unrest, which again, would only draw attention to yourself and your systematic incompetence.
        • Why are you even in charge of this investigation? Doesn’t the Holy Britannia(n) Empire have agencies to investigate this sort of thing? What exactly is your position or authority? Wouldn’t the other members of the royal family be just a little bit interested in overseeing the investigation of the death of one of their siblings?
          • As far as I know, Jeremiah Gottwald is just a random Knightmare pilot. How is any of this happening?
        • Oh yeah, Jeremiah. I’m sure MSGT will admit the crime he did not commit just so he could be subjected to a mock trial as an honorary Britannimerican under your trustworthy purview. Your psychological insight knows no bounds.
    • This is just another shitty scene to show how one-dimensional and cruel these Britannimericans are, although I will admit it is a tad entertaining to watch MSGT get the shit beaten out of him for the third time in as many days.
  • Why does Nunnally call Suzaku “Suzaku-san”? Why? Weren’t they friends? Can these Japanese writers not write realistic dialog in their own language?
  • Asshole Japanese guy, whom I shall call Purple Blazer henceforth, yells at Ohgi for not claiming the Japanese resistance assassinated the Third Prince of Britannia. Purple Blazer does not realize how badly that would go for them.
  • What’s with this random shitty graffiti? Who let a four-year-old scrawl a skull and then a happy sun on the same metal door? Oh, I get it. This hideout is rundown. That totally needed to be anviled in there.
    • HOLY SHIT. How lazy are these animators?
      • Look at that shit.
      • SILLY.WA-TER
      • Wa-ter.
        • Did they want to claim credit for their shitty-ass font formatting?
          • “Water” wraps around the whole water bottle. What…I don’t…
            • Did they buy these from Japanese Wal-Mart?
      • These fucking chauvinists.
        • Wa-ter.
  • Of course there’s a Japanese flag, but I have a question: why is it exactly the same flag we use in the real world? That rendition has a very particular history behind it.
    • Namely, it is not this flag:
      • SILLY.IMPERIAL-FLAG
      • Which flew over large swaths of the entire Pacific Rim for three-ish decades and is about twenty million times more offensive to Asians than the Confederate Flag is to Americans.
      • The flag was changed after Japan was defeated in World War II by the Allies. So, what, are they implying the Japanese people are cosmically destined to build a racist, imperialist, genocidal empire and then be defeated by a morally superior Western power?
        • ‘Cause that’s the shittiest destiny I’ve ever heard of.
  • Who is Naoto and why the fuck don’t I care?
    • He’s also definitely not Japanese.
  • Why did he just say “riida?” Does the Japanese language not have a word for “leader”?
    • Google gives me twenty-five other possible candidates. Are you telling me that none of them would have sufficed here and the Japanese had to borrow “riida” from English just to convey that basic, neutral concept?
      • Ugh. I hate my life.
  • Who is this random geezer and why the fuck don’t I care?
  • Just in case you did not know: Britannia owns this land.
  • These kids must be so bored. I bet none of them cared about the Third Prince. Half of them probably thought he was a real asshole.
  • Why did they show those birds fly by? Was to that make the scene interesting? If so, then scrap the scene and come up with something else.
  • Lloyd, a Britannimerican noble, is wringing his hands over losing MSGT even though he has all the evidence in the world needed to prove his innocence.
    • Also, MSGT did not earn 94% piloting efficiency (whatever the fuck that means) after one session while having never piloted a Knightmare in his life.
      • Nor does Lloyd have any basis to believe that no other young Britannimerican pilot in the entire Empire with years of experience and proper training could match this random almost-dead Japanese guy he picked up off the street.
        • Nothing. Makes. Sense.
  • WHY DOES THE ENGLISH IN THIS SHOW SUCK SO BAD? DID THEY REALLY THINK THEY COULD GET AWAY WITH “MEASURE RESULT”?
  • Yes, Cecile. He should tell them to release Suzaku. That would make sense. But you are a woman, so you have no say.
  • What the…? Lloyd says: “Since Bartley’s disgrace, the Purelbloods have been in control of the military.”
    • Huh?
      • Have these people never heard of this alien concept called the “chain of command? 
        • How are the Purebloods now in control? Is there no other general in all of Area 11 that could have assumed command?
          • Or a colonel? Or a major?
            • How the fuck did control of the entire military in Japan suddenly shift to Jeremiah Gottwald? That is not fucking possible.
              • Wa-ter.
  • The mighty Purebloods are racists whose mentality is utterly detrimental to the ability of the Britannimerican military to maintain its ranks or hold conquered territories.
  • Also, why are Shirley and Lelouch randomly talking about this at the exact same time? How could this possibly have come up in casual conversation?
    • “Hey, Lelouch. Wanna bone?”
    • “No, Shirley. Let me just tell you about these ‘purebloods’ you never asked me about.”
    • “Uh, okay, but can we bone after? There’s a locker room right over there.”
    • “No. Sex is gross.”
    • “Oh well, too bad there aren’t a thousand other young, healthy, virile boys surrounding me. I’ll just ask Jim when we’re done.”
    • “Yes, Jim is fortunate enough to have a penis.”
    • “Totes. So, ‘purebloods?'”
  • Two hours ago, Jeremiah Gottwald snidely remarked about how a cursory investigation wouldn’t find the real killer. Two hours later, Jeremiah Gottwald pencil-whipped an obviously cursory investigation because beavers.
    • I get it. Jeremiah Gottwald is an asshole. I got it the moment I saw him.
      • Also, apparently he’s a margrave, also known as a marquis. That explains nothing.
  • Lloyd: “I doubt there’s anyway he’ll be found innocent.”
    • Alas for all the evidence we have at our fingertips that prove his innocence beyond a shadow of a doubt.
  • Rivalz is talking. This should be illegal. Someone call the police.
  • Lelouch randomly decides to give up gambling, not that anybody cared enough to stop him in the first place.
  • Of course we see a razed Tokyo Tower. Why not?
    • Why the fuck not.
      • It’s not like we knew this was Japan. I thought it was fucking Chile.
  • Obvious propaganda is obvious.
  • Why did Kallen Stadtfeld’s Derriere go to this den of propaganda?
    • Oh, right, the magical bathroom phone told her to.
      • I forgot.
        • Unfortunately, now I have remembered.
          • Wa-ter.
  • Behold: “Japanese” terrorists. One has blue hair, one has brown hair, and one has an afro.
    • How were they even let in here?
  • Let’s watch what impossible scheme Lelouch is spinning here. Count how many seconds it takes before you suffer an aneurysm.
    • I’m so glad this place does not have any security cameras and that nobody in the building knew what Lelouch vi Britannia looked like.
      • That was three seconds, by the way.
  • “His Highness’ memorial program was handled very well.” – Jeremiah Gottwald
    • Except for the part where I violently stormed his funeral procession in broad fucking daylight.
      • Which apparently had zero political consequences for Jeremiah Gottwald.
        • That was two seconds.
  • Diethard has the same voice as Kotomine Kirei. No wonder I like him.
    • Henceforth, Diethard shall be known as Kotomine Kirei.
  • Jeremiah Gottwald is such an asshole that he openly suspects and derides Kotomine Kirei for doing his job competently.
    • This summer in bookstores: How to Lose Friends and Influence Nobody, by Jeremiah Gottwald, with a special forward by Lelouch vi Britannia.
  • No, Jeremiah Gottwald, you weren’t important enough to have a memorial video prepared for you beforehand, just like you aren’t now.
  • Jeremiah Gottwald tries to shove Kotomine Kirei into military intelligence. And fails.
  • What is Jeremiah Gottwald’s plan? Does he honestly think executing the son of the last free Japanese leader will ingratiate himself with the populace or advance his standing somehow?
    • It won’t. There is no way it could.
  • Villetta rightly points out that Jeremiah Gottwald’s plan is fucking stupid and will almost certainly backfire.
  • Jeremiah Gottwald says he’ll personally provide security in his own Sutherland, because that went so well last time.
    • Villetta, you might want to quintuple the security force just in case your boss trips his Knightmare over a fucking pebble and breaks it.
      • Yes, Jeremiah Gottwald, a clearly unstable individual, plans to surround himself with a throng of loyal Britannimerican onlookers, then slaughter any “troublemakers” delicately with a giant machine gun.
        • There is no way such a plan could possibly go awry.
  • This elevated train line goes through the ghetto. Why? Is it going to another ritzy Britannimerican part of town? Why would they restore the city in a patchwork pattern, forcing them to build such infrastructure to service them?
    • Also, if Japan was defeated in less than a month, how was the entire Kantou plain devastated so thoroughly? Did the Holy Britannia(n) Empire just carpet-bomb the fuck out of everything?
      • Wait, this train marks the border of the Britannian district? Isn’t that, um, kinda dangerous?  Why isn’t this train bombed weekly?
        • Why do the train stops have Japanese names? The Holy Britannia(n) Empire went to such lengths as to rename the entire country. Why is this next stop named “Okubo?”
          • And the line is called the “Chou Soubu” Line. Fuck authenticity.
    • This train is painted red and purple, just in case you were wondering if it belonged to Britannia.
  • That’s a Pizza Hut ad.
    • Pizza Hut is an American restaurant chain. This is an alternate universe with profoundly different geopolitics. Do they think a pizza franchise in this weirdly alternate universe would come up with that exact same logo and advertising aesthetic?
      • The Japanese love money.
        • Wa-ter.
  • How did Lelouch clear out this car?
    • No, he did not use his Geass to do it. That wouldn’t stop any passengers not already in the car from coming back in where there was room.
      • This is not a clandestine meeting place, Lelouch. Dozens of people can see you.
        • FEAR THE MASKED FIGURE STANDING UNDERNEATH A PIZZA HUT SIGN.
          • HERE IS THE PEPPERONI THOU HATH REQUESTED.
            • THAT WILL BE TEN DOLLARS.
              • CASH ONLY. UNMARKED BILLS.
  • The excuse is that Lelouch used his Geass to do it. Something like the following will happen in approximately five seconds:
    • “Hey, Bob. Let’s go to the next car. It’s way less crowded.”
    • “Okay, Steve.”
    • “Wait, why is everyone staring into space like zombies with red halos in their eyes? Should we call someone?”
    • “Yeah, call an ambulance or something. I’m gonna go check the next car.”
    • “Good idea.”
      • But it doesn’t.
  • Lelouch does not look sketchy at all. Everyone seems to take him really seriously despite how comical this whole situation is.
  • Oh ho, the hue changed. How not creative.
  • Is he speaking through a microphone? His voice just changed.
  • Why did the Japanese guy just say “tour”?
  • This scene is trying to be so dramatic, but with the fucking Pizza Hut signs in every shot, I can’t help but see it as an argument with the pizza delivery guy on Halloween.
    • “WHERE THE FUCK IS OUR PIZZA, MAN? AND WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU WEARING?”
    • “IT REMAINETH WARM AND FRESH INSIDE MY HIDDEN KNAPSACK, BUT FIRST YE MUST PAY ME OBEISANCE.”
    • “WE DIDN’T BRING ANY CANDY, MAN. JUST COCAINE.”
    • “THEN THY TONGUES SHALL NEVER KNOW THE TASTE OF HEAVEN.”
  • “Terrorism will not defeat Britannia.” -Lelouch vi Britannia
    • Who is trying to destroy Britannia via terrorism.
      • Lelouch might want to listen to his own advice.
  • “Terrorism is merely a childish nuisance.” – Lelouch vi Britannia
    • I’ve got it. All we have to do to defeat ISIS is send Lelouch to talk to them. They’ll give up.
  • “Don’t mistake your enemy. It isn’t the Britannian people, but Britannia itself!” -Lelouch vi Britannia
    • Which is made up of the Britannian people.
      • How are you going to damage one without harming the other?
  • “What you need to fight is a war!” -Lelouch vi Britannia
    • Oh, a war. That’s a much better idea than terrorism. All our problems are solved!
      • Also, didn’t you fight a war already? And, um, lose? Really badly? (Somehow.)
        • “Without involving the civilians!”
          • Every military leader in history is laughing.
  • Kallen Stadtfeld’s Derriere rightly points out that everything Lelouch said is completely retarded.
  • These people actually think that Lelouch is going to take off his mask. Lol.
    • Also, how has Kallen Stadtfeld’s Derriere not recognized Lelouch’s voice by now?
  • It’s another Japanese flag. There’s a slight possibility that Japanese people might be talking.
    • There’s tatami. An Asian man is sitting on his knees as if meditating. He has a sheathed katana in front of him. I conclude there is a very slight possibility that this involves Japanese people.
      • Oh look, Japanese people. I, for one, am shocked.
        • Why are they all wearing hats inside? Do they not know that every soldier in the world takes his hat off when inside?
  • That old guy’s eyebrows are monstrous.
    • They must be at least an inch wide.
      • And those whiskers, damn. This guy knows how to groom himself.
  • That other old asshole’s hair is wild too. It’s like he has wings on the back of his head.
    • Jesus Christ, is this even a military?
  • Lloyd says “Congratulations!” to a guy who is about to be executed, a guy whose innocence he could prove in five seconds. And both of them know this.
    • Lloyd is a fucking prick.
  • “You might be getting a trial, but nobody’s on your side.” -Lloyd Asplund
    • Not like you could do anything, Lloyd.
      • Also, you have the most unfortunate surname ever coined.
  • Hey, Suzaku: you still think you can change the system from within?
    • How is MSGT not a jaded sociopath at this point? The world keeps stepping on his dick at every turn.
  • BREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAK.
  • Who designed this city? Who designs a city in such a retarded manner as to require a cable-span bridge to cross a bottomless chasm in the middle of the metropolis? Why is it there?
  • Wait, have they not finished MSGT’s trial yet? Man, this is one efficient-ass autocracy.
  • The Ashford Academy Student Council has a giant HD screen TV in its meeting room.
    • They need it.
      • For very good reasons.
  • Kotomine Kirei is in charge of this spectacle. All will be perfectly fine.
  • How much did they pay these idiots to come here? Like, five bucks each? Geez.
  • Man, guys, I don’t think MSGT is gonna be able to go anywhere. You kinda went a little overboard with the guards and the fucking straight jacket.
  • Who the fuck was that random girl and why the fuck don’t I care?
    • Oh wait, that was a sound of one of those bamboo tubes they have in Japanese gardens. I think she might have been Japanese.
      • Subtle, Code Geass. Really subtle.
  • The following conversation is actually taking place:
    • “But we know that Suzaku’s innocent.”
    • “The court deemed our testimony inadmissable. It can’t be helped.”
      • Why is it inadmissable? It’s military records obtained during combat. It cannot, by law, be inadmissable.
        • Not that the trial has even taken place yet, you fuckers. This is such a lazy plug for a gaping plot hole.
          • I hate these writers with all my heart and soul.
  • Is nobody the least bit annoyed by how obvious this propaganda is?
  • Why is Jeremiah Gottwald directing the trial? Is this parade supposed to be the trial? What authority does he have as a military judge? Have these writers never researched a military justice system before?
  • Oh my God. We get it. Lelouch is coming to save the day. We don’t need to see him putting on his outfit, you lazy punks.
    • And where is he even doing this? And why now?
  • “There’s no way just the three of them can do this!” – Purple Blazer
    • Very good point, asshole. Too bad there is no loving God.
  • They renamed this street “Third Street,” but couldn’t rename a fucking train stop. The Holy Britannia(n) Empire has priorities.
  • Uh, hey, Jeremiah Gottwald. I have a few questions again. Nothing major:
    • How did you guys lose Prince Clovis’ car? How did you let it get stolen? Why wasn’t it reported stolen?
    • Why are you, the Marquis of the entire region personally overseeing security for this charade, letting the car through even though your subordinate just told you it’s a massive security risk?
      • It’s almost as if this was all planned out ahead of time.
        • No, not by Lelouch. I mean by some asshole writers who couldn’t make it anywhere else but Sunrise Entertainment.
    • Why is any of this happening? Why is Jeremiah letting this happen? What the fuck is his reasoning behind it?
      • Wa-ter.
  • Everyone somehow doesn’t see the car approaching the procession down the completely empty 10-lane highway. Is everyone in the Holy Britannia(n) Empire blind?
    • If so, then I’ve got some bad news for you, Lelouch.
  • Hey, idiots. I don’t care how Lelouch got Clovis’ car. Anyone in their right mind would command his forces to intercept it and prevent it from reaching the procession. This scene doesn’t make an ounce of sense.
  • Kallen Stadtfeld’s Derriere seriously asks herself if the Britannimericans will be fooled by the scrap heap she’s driving. Do they not realize that every square millimeter of this road is being watched by high-definition video cameras that hundreds of millions of people across the world are tuning into?
  • Why does Lelouch say “clear”? Does the Japanese language not have a word for the verb “to clear”? One that would probably sound way cooler?
  • How did this car get through any security checkpoint? How?
  • Ummmmmmmmmm, what just happened? Did Lelouch just set that curtain on fire?
    • How did it burn away cleanly in, like, three seconds? That is not how fire operates in this universe
      • So Pizza Hut exists and has the exact same logo, but fire burns things instantly. Right.
  • So, um, is Lelouch speaking English or Japanese in this scene?
  • Somewhere out in North America, the Emperor is giggling, as is half of his family, because they all recognize Lelouch’s voice.
    • Also, how is Lelouch projecting his voice that loud? Does he have a mic? Where is it? Where are the speakers for it? In the car? I sure as fuck don’t see any.
  • “Zero? As in nothing?” -Diethard
    • No, idiot. As in the number, not the abstract concept. What normal person would think that?
      • These writers are so fucking pretentious.
  • JAPANESE PEOPLE ARE STANDING IN THEIR JAPANESE DOJO WITH THEIR JAPANESE FLAG AND JAPANESE KATANAS LOOKING VERY JAPANESE.
  • MSGT does not recognize the voice of his best friend.
  • Hey, here’s an idea: how about you shoot him, Jeremiah? Like, with a gun. Or do you not know how to use one?
    • Because that would explain your fuckup the last time.
      • Wa-ter.
  • Oh. It’s, uh, C.C’s containment pod.
    • Hmm. Okay. Slight problem:
      • How did Lelouch get that? At no point did he retrieve it. In fact, he high-tailed it out of there once Villetta gave him her Knightmare. Plus, the military recovered MSGT in the same place. Did they just leave the pod there?
        • I think continuity’s maimed ghost just floated past me, wailing.
  • Lelouch, how does terrorizing the innocent civilian populace with the threat of POISON GAS advance your cause?
    • Not to mention no one has any idea what the thing is anyway. So who the fuck cares?
  • Yes, let’s keep standing around watching the TERRORIST and hope he explains what this suspicious looking device does.
    • This announcer is high as a kite.
  • OH WOW, JEREMIAH GOTTWALD. YOUR PLAN BACKFIRED. WHAT AN UNEXPECTED TURN OF EVENTS.
    • Also, since when do you care about other people’s lives?
  • That gun also has a purposeless light on it. Some marketer has to be making millions off that shit.
  • Why did Kotomine Kirei call that asshole an “amateur”? Does the Japanese language…no, I can see them needing to borrow that one. That’s fine.
    • A better question would be why Kotomine Kirei had that random video camera nearby in the first place.
  • Why doesn’t the Holy Britannia(n) Empire use these things called “snipers” and carefully “snipe” the terrorist in the head without damaging the capsule?
    • There is no way Japan was beaten by this lunacy.
  • Lelouch must’ve starched the beeswax out of that collar.
  • Somewhere out in North America, the royal family is assembling to descend upon Japan and arrest Lelouch for killing on of their own.
    • But first, they must order pizza.
  • Let’s all trust this masked man who claims he killed Prince Clovis. He is very credible.
  • Doesn’t anybody in the military know this capsule is harmless?
  • “He’s playing this whole thing like it’s a show!” -Diethard
    • Just like we are, but it’s different! Somehow!
  • Shoot him, Jeremiah. It’s what you should have done five minutes ago.
  • Lelouch says “Orange,” but he’s speaking in Japanese. But he’s speaking in English, and it would sound really weird to say something like “Are you sure you don’t want them to know about orange?” in English. Like, that implies he’s talking about the color. It just makes him sound like a retard.
    • Which he is.
  • Wait, Lelouch’s plan is to use his Geass on Jeremiah. Again: this scene is being monitored by hundreds of cameras, in particular one that is a few dozen feet away, and he thinks nobody at all will notice his little eye socket open up to reveal his purple eye, general features, and the big red sigil in his iris. Nor does he think this footage will get back to the Emperor or anyone else who knows about Geass.
    • Same for you, Kallen Stadtfeld’s Derriere. You didn’t even try to hide your face. God.
  • Jeremiah’s behavior completely changes, but no one questions him or follows through or has any fucking clue what’s going on.
    • These is no way Japan was beaten by this idiocy.
      • Wa-ter.
  • Lol, Lelouch has the physical capabilities of an obese rhino. How did he jump and run that fast?
  • No, Lelouch. You did not plan this out.
  • Ohgi’s Knightmare is shot to hell, which breaks the cables holding Lelouch and Co. from falling into the bottomless chasm they jumped into. Lelouch and Co stumble off and fall to their deaths.
    • Oh wait, no. They’re all alive somehow.
      • Including Ohgi, who just took ten bullets to the face.
        • And there’s continuity’s ghost again. He’s not a very happy ghost.
  • There is no way any of them just survived that. Jeremiah was obviously completely insane and just one person among dozens. Any other soldier would’ve ignored him or suspected him of collusion and gone after Lelouch and Co. With Ohgi’s Knightmare blasted to pieces, they had no other way to get out of there. The writers just did not want to bother completing the scene. They skipped over any real resolution and moved on.
    • Days of Our Lives has better writing than this show.
  • Actually, no, Oghi. You should all be freaking out at what just happened, since none of it MADE ANY GODDAMN SENSE.
  • Ohgi admits he couldn’t have done it. Then he talks about fighting a war with Britannia.
    • Yeah, Ohgi, you’re right. You’re a terrible leader.
  • MSGT refuses to fight against the Empire that just tried to execute him for a crime he didn’t commit. He then insists that Zero is evil for killing someone whom he witnessed order the wholesale massacre and destruction of an entire city because he couldn’t do be arsed to do his job. There is no ethical reason for MSGT to object to what Zero just did. He just saved his life without killing or harming anyone, innocent or otherwise.
    • The only reason MSGT is mad at Zero is the same reason Padme dies at the end of Episode III.
      • And the same reason the Star Wars Prequels happened.
        • Wa-ter.
  • Then, MSGT decides to go back to that Empire and actively fight for a bunch of racist murderers in the blind hope that he can “reform” it. Fuck you, Suzaku. You’re a terrible person.
  • “Because I think the ends are just as worthless if the means to them are wrong!” -Suzaku Kururugi
    • There was absolutely nothing wrong with Zero’s methods.
      • Apart from them not making any sense.
  • Lelouch rightfully points out that Suzaku’s entire philosophy is intellectually and ethically bankrupt.
    • MSGT has the gall to thank his rescuer for risking his life to save his own while simultaneously rendering that risk completely meaningless.
      • There is a very good reason everyone hates this asshole.
  • How does MSGT plan to walk back there in an hour?
  • Why is MSGT suddenly getting a fair trial? Because some weirdo claimed he killed Clovis? The system seems to think they have a gun with MSGT’s fingerprints on it. That’s awfully convenient.
  • Also, is this all supposed to have taken place in the space of an hour? How is Nunnally still awake?
  • C.C. gets her rape face on.
    • I hope you don’t suffer any more trauma from this, Nunnally.
      • Jesus Christ, what is wrong with this show?
