Rollo gets mindfucked.
WHAT THE FUCK!
Oh god, Lulu, or should I say the Sunrise scriptwriters, are masters at such plot twistings. Hell, I felt a bit of pity for poor Rollo myself.
So basically, Lulu manages to talk his way out of Rollo by promising to bring him C.C. Then he hatches a plan to try to both save his subordinates and get rid of Rollo, and finally finds some “interesting” material, regarding Rollo’s past and his ideals.
Setting up an elaborate scheme, he proceeds to head for the Chinese Embassy, alone, with Rollo’s knowledge, and manages to concoct up a nice little show, forcing Rollo to actually save his ass in the fighting that ensues. With Rollo thinking that’ll be the end of him, Lelouch covers his actions up from Viletta, convincing him that he still thinks of him as his younger brother, so now Rollo’s gotten converted to his side. Oh wow, that was a fucking awesome mindfuck there, Lelouch.
That was so totally and masterfully executed, that while one part of me is logically declaring the sheer convolutedness of it, the other parts are saying, “HOLY SHIT THAT WAS SUM FUCKING AWESOME MINDFUCK.” I guess it’s moments like this that will probably define the second season of Code Geass, if they continue onwards like this.
Gotta admit, EVIL Lulu is awesome.
Other interesting things to note in the episode:
- Viletta-sensei looks like she still has some feelings for Ohgi. Truly, she was really moe when she was Chigusa, and then the end of Code Geass totally ruined it all, but I’m happy to see that she hasn’t fully forgotten Ohgi’s kindness and her feelings for him. Found it rather cute of her when she was relieved to see Ohgi getting saved, despite being the enemy herself.
- Aww~~ C.C. can’t assemble handguns. Awww~~~
- Kaguya… is still loli-licious as usual.
“Oops, I did it again.”
Next episode, Suzaku returns to Ashford Academy. The school festival, or another one of Millay’s parties, is ongoing. Anya and pretty boy Zino is seen enjoying the festivities as well. This looks like it’s gonna be another awesome ride through. Wonder how long will Lelouch manage to keep his current facade up.
IcyStorm: why are all of Lelouch’s memories of Rolo and him together so…
bj0rN: Rolo might have used his ability to molest Lelouch from time to time
Damn right, it’s damn gay.
