Hangyaku no Lelouch 13 - Shārī to Jūkō - キョウトからの使者
Following the death of Shirley's father, Joseph Fennete, a funeral was held in his honor. This is one of the saddest scenes on Code Geass so far, as we see Shirley's mother crying her heart as they buried her husband. Even though we have never seen Shirley's father, everyone's reaction made this scene emotional. The student council was there as well, and Milly was worried about her friend. Shirley brushed it off, saying it is okay.
We get a flashback of Shirley and her father. After declaring that she is going to marry him, he
says that she will fall in love one day and marry the right person. Hmmm, I wonder who that could be?
Suzaku goes into another angry rant about Zero being a coward. Kallen obviously is angry at his words, but she can't say anything.
Everyone in the student council left except Lelouch, who obviously needs to comfort Shirley. But he just stood there in silence, basking in guilt because Shirley's father died because of Zero.
Surprising, Shirley apologized to him for "forcing" herself upon him, referring to the part when
she kissed him in the last episode. She said to forget the whole thing. They did all that making out
for nothing, so it seems.
Back at home, CC asked Lelouch if he regrets walking the path of bloodshed. Angry and depressed,
he asked her to shut up, but she continued to talk and he grew mad and grabbed her. CC wasn't scared, but she told him calmly that those who walk this path cannot turn back. Shocked over her words, Lelouch goes to the shower and bangs the wall with his fist, while having random flashbacks of people that he killed so far.
Diethard made a visit to the Black Knights to bring them some very valuable information. The Britannian Army is going to attack the Japan Liberation Front as they flee to another country. Zero said that he will ally with the JLF and team up against Britannia.
In Shirley's flashback, Villetta says that Lelouch is related to the Black Knights. She doesn't believe it, so she follows Lelouch as he went to the dock. So basically, she decides to trust a complete stranger she doesn't even know over a friend that she's known for years.
Zero was resting half naked as Kallen went to visit him. She is having second thoughts about being in the Black Knights and what is the meaning of justice. Zero makes a speech aobut spilling more blood to justify those lives who are already lost, so that they don't waste the blood of those already spilled.
The Portmans are deployed, they are amphibious Knightmare Frames that launch missiles underwater.
Cornelia ordered the front lines to attack the JLF, and Shirley watches the battle from a distance.
The JLF, without Knightmares, are being shot down. Unable to contact Tohdoh or Kyoto, they are a
sitting duck in the ocean, so they surrender. At this point, Lelouch pushes a button that is conveniently set up to blow up the sakuradite below the ship, destroying all Knightmares and the
ship itself. Thus, the JLF is destroyed with the explosion.
Diethard seems to understand Zero's plan more than anyone else. Zero used the JLF as bait to lure the Britannian forces out, and in the confusing the Black Knights attack the Briannians. It figures that the psychoes understand the psychoes.
Cornelia is ambushed by surprise by Zero's Burai and Kallen's Guren. Suddenly, Zero sees Shirley
behind the cargo. Then once again, Suzaku's Lancelot show up to ruin everything. He attacks Zero's
Burai, breaking it into pieces and only the cockpit is left.
Shirley goes to see the unconscious Zero and grabs a conveniently discarded gun. She pointed the gun at him and his mask fell off, and Shirley gasped as she saw the face of Lelouch.
