That was really frightening, to see the extent of the power of the Geass. She has such an innocent but naive air about her, and then when the Geass was used on her.. OMG ;_;

My reaction was basically the same as everyone's else: WTF JUST HAPPENED???!!

And I agree with what some of you said on how convenient it was that the Geass acted up at such a critical point. But I thought about it, and maybe it was supposed to. Think about it, Lelouch finally agrees to someone else's plans instead of his own? It could be a sort of catch-22: when the user experiences a certain emotion or participates in a certain event. Speculation though, since I'm watching the dub and trying to be a good girl and not watch ahead.

As far as characters that I think might survive, I really don't think Euphie will (poor dear). And Suzaku can't die because of the Geass used on him (remember, he MUST LIVE!!! *dramatic music*). Lelouch might not be able to die either. I'm not sure how long ago Mao got his Geass, but he'd have to be significantly older than Lelouch. He seems too young to me. And Kallen, I totally see her living (oddly enough). However, Ohgi just might die because of who he's in bed with (if anyone caught that this episode).

Another thing I wanted to ask for anyone who's watching the dub. Did anyone else find it odd that this episode only got a TV-14 rating (with a V for the obvious violence)? Other episodes, as well as other anime, have received TV-MA ratings for far less (i.e. some eps of Evangelion and Eureka seveN). Just curious if anyone else noticed that.

Completely ridiuclous episode. Seriously, how convenient is it for the Geass to start acting up at such a critical situation? It's retarded that it happened like that.


Damn, I thought I was the only one. I just watched the episode, and... what the fuck hell was that? That's gotta be one of the dumbest plot twists I've seen in a long time. I am currently in awe at how randomly it happened.


I completely agree. It was kind of unique, but such an idiotic plot twist should never occur. I really can't understand how this got such high ratings?

The scene reminded me of Zaku Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei: Saying important things casually. XDDD I really had to laugh there.

This was very emotive. Lelouch's father wants dead and it seems that there will be a lot...

Code Geass does a good job at capturing the horror of violence whatever else you might say about it. That little boy shaking in the middle of the bloody corpses was shocking.

the order was "to kill japanese", meaning Euphie will under the geass for a long time.

WOW. I was not expecting that twist.

It could have gone so well - resolved all the problems, peace would be resolved, had it not been for that tiny mistake where Loulouch put his guard down, and Geas was still activated.
Then BOM all hell breaks lose, and everything regresses to the hatred and to the Elevens vs Britannians.

This. Is. Epic. :O
I was emotionally moved..

..woh. >.< that was awesome and upsetting and ridiculously creepy at the same time - the bit where Euphemia is shooting Elevens with a machine gun with that smile on her face and blood all over her.. *shudders* I thought she was going to get killed by Lelouch or something when I read the title but maann, this was even more intense.. ridiculously intense..

and poor Lelouch - though really, it just goes to show how having some superhuman power is not really that great a thing (though I did wonder why he didn't think for a moment: wait, I have a geass that makes people do what I say, maybe I shouldn't joke about her killing all the Japanese) and what he said at the end to C.C kinda confirms that he realises that - even though he didn't mean it - it's all his fault

also, the bit where he says about not being the messiah made me think of all the times I've read: "Lelouch is just like Light" and proved them wrong. Lelouch knows that he's a monster.. he's known that for quite some time now.. but Light never gets it.

Come on guys ... why are you complaning about how the activation of geass was to convenient ???
I thought every anime-fan knew that the animes are build upon convenient events.
for instance:
isn't it convenient that the boy C.C gave the geass to HAPPENED to be the emperors son who HAPPEND to be looking for the power to destroy the britanien empire ?
I am just saying it

if it wheren't for the convenient events it would be imposible to make a decent anime plot and all the stories would be WAAAY to predictable.

suddenly making a plot-twist and bringing the plot in a diffrent unexpected direction is simply the risk every anime author has to take if he/she want the anime to become something great ... sometimes it ruins the anime other times it turns it in to a masterpiece
I won't judge which one of them fits on CG but I will say that compared to the plot so far the end would have been to plain if something didn't happen.

besides ... a happy ending simply won't suit CG ;)

QFT! I was actually a little bored with the series but I was so close to the end of the season I decided to finish it, really glad I did because this episode was insane.

HOLY CRAP. That episode was absolutely insane. And yeah, it does kind of seem like a "retarded" plot twist, but it's not as if it was just convenient. The show had shown us with Mao that the Geass power would eventually get out of control, and if Zero and the Black Knights had went along with the new district I'm not sure how Lelouch would have been able to keep his war up.

Oh man, I felt so bad for everyone.

The worst part is, is that Lelouch didn't even think his geass would go crazy at that point.

I hope he's able to kill Suzuki afterall. I mean he's been able to do Clovis and Luthenia, his own sibblings, so don't tell me he would back off last minute.

I thought they were letting everyone get just a little too happy.

But dear God, I still didn't expect them to be quite that harsh...

Talk about a major twist. I really didn't hate Euphie, but now it seems like there will be no other way to deal with this than kill her or lock her up and label her mental. Poor Suzaku. Poor Lelouch. :[

I can't blame Zero for what happened though! He only wanted to fix things up! That's all so sad! :(( So what now?! Won't she stop until she kills off ALL the Japanese?!?! These are A LOT! O.o
how it ended up like this GEEZ??? I'm dissappointed, honestly... I was about to give this series a 10, but now it won't be a 10 fosho!

Like others, this episode was also a totally WTF moment for me

I wouldn't say it's too convenient, but there was something off about the turn of events.. Like, the part in the movie Zoolander where Derek's model friends are having a gasoline fight and one of them lights a cigarette. Zoolander's all like "NOOOOOOO!!!" in slo mo and then there's a gigantic gasoline explosion incinerating his friends.

It's hilariously stupid and bizarre.. Kind of like what happened in this episode. I mean, this episode wasn't stupid. It was actually really good and obviously little Japan wasn't gonna last. The massacre of the Japanese was chilling. I really want to know the involvement of Lelouch's father in these events.. This was the perfect twist for the anime.

But still, Lelouch's mess up was a little like lighting a cigarette during a gasoline fight for me. Very WTF.

I'm really looking forward to the next few episodes.

I was thinking "why the F did they Zero mess it all up by mistake? it's ridiculous"!
But then I thought "oh, well. This is the ironical part, that he should have thought over how his geass could be destructive and dangerous. And hell, it was destructive and dangerous".

But I hope they don't go "yay, since we are the producers let's make it so that there is lots of blood on the season finale! YAHOOO!", because that would make it get no more than an 8. And I wanted to give it a 10.
Well, we'll see.

Pretty sure if you watch it again he wasn't making eye contact with Euphy. Then he turned to her and it randomly turned on.

He was going to finally give it up then he had to go mess it all up.

I gotta say, This episode is very brilliant!!
What's supposed to end with happiness need to get destroyed by Geass..
This is why this power is dangerous! >.<
Really liked Euphie too... And I also want her to be with Lelouch and Nanaly as a complete family.....

-The way in which Euphy goes all berserk made no sense. It was not logical for Lelouch to go on and on about his power. The smart thing to do is to tell as little people about it as possible.

That was unpredictable. Especially how it all played out. Is it madness or one of the best episodes yet?

And it appears like the Emperor knew what was happening, I wonder if he was either referring to Euphie or Leluch.
