Code Geass R2 episode 15

OMG! I am very late with my episodic review of Code Geass R2. So I’ll make a quick review of episode 15. And yes, I can partially blame this on the lousy internet connection in my apartment.

Lelouch confronts his father at the Sword of Akasha and using a sneaky trick, he uses his Geass on his father and commanded him to kill himself. To Lelouch’s content, his father draws out a gun and shoot himself. More after the jump.

Suzaku was about to use Refrain on Kallen but by doing so, he is reminded that his action is no different than being Lelouch himself. So he throws away the Refrain and walked away. Meanwhile Lelouch is in for the shock of his life when his father wakes up, appeared unharmed from the gunshot wound. He reveals his right hand bearing the Geass symbol. Emperor Charles nows hold the power of immortality. But as a result of this, V.V. who handed his Geass Code to Charles has died. Lelouch is brought to the Thought Elevator where he is surrounded by unusual gears and masks. Then Charles appears to him. Meanwhile Villetta meets with Ougi and argued about their past relationship. Suddenly Sayako showed up behind them. Back to Lelouch, he was asked by his father about what he had gained while he takes the mask of Zero. Although Lelouch takes pride of having an army and authority at a tender age, he was questioned if he wanted to show his true self despite being behind the mask. Charles reveals that there is only one person in the history of mankind, the present and the future. And that confuses Lelouch. C.C. suddenly shows up, telling Charles that it was not necessary for him to use “that” to call out to her. After Charles openly said that he is willing to grant C.C.’s wish, she then reveals her contract condition to Lelouch. Her wish is simply to die. Geass users such as Lelouch himself, is able to replace the person who grants them Geass and with that, the power to kill that person. However Lelouch is reluctant to decide on killing C.C. as he is not willing to do so. Given that answer, C.C. sends him away elsewhere. Meanwhile at Ashford Academy, Suzaku goes there to check on Lelouch, only to find that he is not there. He immediately goes to the secret operation centre of the Intelligence Department and comes to realize that the entire team has been controlled by Lelouch. Far away at the Dallas Research Institute, Schniezel arrives with Canon to witness the first trial of the experiment headed by Nina.

Lelouch reappears in another unknown location. This time at a countryside where a small girl is walking towards himself. As she falls, he tried to grab hold of her but she fall past through him. C.C. then appears and told him that it was impossible for him to intervene because he is now inside C.C. memory. He then witness this same girl inside a church where a nun comes to rescue her. The girl made a contract with that nun and Lelouch immediately understand that this is the moment when C.C. made her Geass contract. Meanwhile Sayako engages Villetta and managed to force her way to a cliff. Sayako made her last move but Ougi immediately jumps in to cover Villetta and he falls to the river below. In an attempt to save Ougi, Villetta jumps to catch him but what awaits them below is a rocky river. The Geass C.C. received back then was the power to be loved. Indeed she was loved by everyone but after taking on this power for a long time, she could not differentiate real love from the people under her Geass influence. It was the nun who is the only one cannot be controlled by this Geass. One day, the nun reveals that she tricked her into receiving the Geass. Since then, C.C. was doomed to live for eternity. At the Sword of Akasha, Lelouch suddenly reappears to C.C. and Charles as he managed to open the Thought Elevator. Charles halts Lelouch down in his Gawain as he begins to take C.C.’s Code. Lelouch talks his way to stop C.C. from giving her Code to Charles. C.C. comes to her senses and push Charles away. Lelouch immediately used this opportunity to destroy the Sword of Akasha. With the floating shrine slowly collapsing, C.C. falls down and Lelouch reaches out to save her. Back in the Dallas lab, the experimental bomb was detonated to an apocalyptic scale. MIB agent Canon was jaw-dropped but cool MIB guy Schniezel was all smiles about this success. But of course, Nina does not cut for being an MIB. Lelouch and C.C. returned to the cult city and once C.C. regains consciousness, she begins to act awkwardly. Asking Lelouch who he is, she quickly submits to him as his new master. Indeed, C.C. is now the person who she was before.

Thoughts: Before we get all giddy about the shocking twist at the end of the episode (like always), I am entirely disappointed with the SUNRISE staff for slacking a lot on this episode. The previous episode was a huge leap of improvement from the episode before when Shirley died. Then it all comes plummetting at this episode. Yes, I am complaining about this. For a story as good as Code Geass, lousy animation would only spoil the exciting mood of the episode. Nonetheless I enjoy the episode a lot, simply because the final major pieze of the Geass puzzle is complete. What is Geass; who C.C. is and who C.C. was; how Geass works; everything that revolves around the Geass and C.C.’s history is explained in this episode. With that, I am truly psyched for the episode. Let’s not talk about Suzaku and Ougi for now. Two things in this episode intrigues me a lot. First was about C.C.’s memory loss. C.C. seems to have given up her Geass Code but to whom it receives remains a mystery. Should Charles managed to take it, then that spells huge trouble for Lelouch. Someone who is already god-like is now impossible to stop against. Or so it seems. Nina had already proved her success with her nuclear bomb experiment and this brings to an addition to Britannia’s arsenal. Schniezel who seems to be plotting for something is responsbile to patronize Nina’s experiment and it is likely that he will use this to his own advantage. Although the fight now is between Lelouch and his father, little noticed that Schniezel is the third player in the shadows.

Now, three cheers to Ougi and Villetta. Though Villetta denies her feelings for Ougi, Ougi on the other hand, is the man as he confesses his feeling for her. And Villetta’s act to save Ougi is evident enough that she is truly in love with him. Don’t worry, I’m sure they both survive the fall. Speaking of love, C.C. had always wished for her death but what she truly longs for is for someone to genuinely loves her. Maybe this is where Lelouch would step in. Heck, this might work well as it sounds. Now that she lost her memory, they may as well start all over again. Episodes to come would be very, very interesting in this respect.

Next episode: Lelouch is moving on to his next plan as Zero with his army of the Black Knights. However there is C.C. for him to worry about. Or not.
