Holy ****, this week's episode was awesome! The exiling clause was genius, season 2 has been knocking it out of the park for almost every episode. I love this series.
I love this show.
I'm amused at the thought of a nation of one million Zeroes.
Census-guy: Yes, I am the census taker of the Britannian Empire. I have come to ensure that your nation is not overpopulated, thereby meaning you don't have to be slaughtered by us. Thinning of the herds and whatnot. Now, how many do you have?
Zero: One Million Zeroes.
Census-guy: One million...but that would be a googleplex. My apologies, but not only does your nation qualify for the culling, it also is physically impossible to hold that many people on the planet. We'll begin the genocide as soon as possible.
Zero: Don't get snappy with me, boy. I can make you shoot yourself in the head.
Census-guy: But can you do that now?
Zero: Actually, yes. (opens mask panel)
Incidentally, C.C. is my aunt's nickname. Trippy.
I'm pretty sure that it's Rolo, I don't remember seeing him in the scene.
On the other, why is it that all the characters who really don't deserve to die get axed? Stupid drama.
Bet your ***.Rolo is gonna eat it. Hard.
I can't remember the last time 5 minutes of television was that good. I was blown away. Repeatedly. Two incredible character moments back-to-back. The Jeremiah reveal was brilliant and completely unexpected. Rolo and Shirley both followed their character arcs to the logical conclusion, but the execution was so well done that it still caught me off guard. This show continues to raise the bar.
Because it's WAR!!!
I don't know if that was the case. I'm sensing a bit of jealousy to be the culprit in Rolo's matter especially after the fact Nunally was mentioned.
This sucks. I liked the way it happened, but damn that sucks. I think you all know what I'm talking about. I know it says spoilers but for those with an interest in the show and have not seen it, I don't want to spoil it. It would just cheapen the drama.
I just thought of something.
Could Shirley's killer be Suzaku?
Granted, it's a stretch, but I refuse to believe it was Rolo until we have confirmation. Sure, he's a basketcase, and he had motive, but we never saw the full scene.
Imagine, if you will, Shirley's talking to Rolo when Suzaku, who was in the building the whole time, finds them. Suzaku overhears their conversation, and realizes Rolo has defected. Rolo notices Suzaku, panics and activates his Geass. Suzaku proves too quick for Rolo and starts beating the tar out of him. Shirley, confused by the situation, fires. Suzaku realizes he's being shot at, instincts take over, and before he realizes it, he's killed Shirley in self-defense.
Whether I'm right or wrong, Rolo's screwed. Lulu made that clear the moment he started playing mind games with him.
Which is why the above is in spoilers.
