This was the best confession ever. Really. And Suzaku says yes almost automatically and then gets a wired expression when he realizes what was being asked. I think it was just sweet.
But was it really necessary to have that in the middle of a fight.
Lelouch and Suzaku fighting side by side. It was kind of badass forreal. I also found the plot with the barely previously mentioned Chinese Federation or whatever interesting. Didn't expect Lelouch to reject their help. But makes sense. Trading one master for another. The Gawain was pretty cool too, maybe a little too cool. I kind of liked that Lelouch wasn't as useful in actual combat. While I find Suzaku as frustrating as many viewers, I thought his and Euphemia's arc in this episode was really effective. Feelings of self loathing are extremely common. And kind of lowest common denominator. But Euphemia's speech to Suzaku near the end was kind of sweet. Glad he's her knight again, although the turn around was so quick can't help but feel a little like a timewaste.
