Meanwhile, Jeremiah makes his move on Ashford Academy, overwhelming Sayoko and Rolo in his search for Lelouch. Jeremiah corners him, but is paralyzed by the G Train. Struggling, he asks why Lelouch betrayed the Emperor, to which the former prince reveals his motivation to avenge his mother. Having greatly admired Marianne, Jeremiah joins Lelouch's cause. Shirley finally reconciles her restored memories, asking Suzaku to forgive Lelouch as she has. Before she can reach Lelouch, she runs into Rolo, who shoots her when she reveals knowledge of Nunnally. Lelouch discovers Shirley alone and bleeding to death and stays with her in her final moments. Shirley reveals her feelings for him, how much she liked him, and how no matter how many times she is reborn, she will fall in love with him again. With her final words Shirley passes away with a smile on her face. Lelouch is distraught as Shirley was probably his first love. 14 "Geass Hunt"
"Giasu Gari" (ギアス狩り)
Kazuo Miyake Ichirō Ōkouchi July 13, 2008 March 1, 2009 Rolo admits to causing Shirley's death; rather than blame Rolo specifically, Lelouch blames the existence of Geass itself. In retaliation, he mounts an assault on the Geass Order, slaughtering every man, woman, and child within the stronghold. V.V. pilots the Siegfried in an effort to stop the Black Knights, but is defeated by Lelouch and Cornelia. He escapes to the Thought Elevator, where Charles awaits, and when Lelouch follows he is transported to the Sword of Akasha. Meanwhile, Kallen and Nunnally discuss Lelouch, until Suzaku interrupts. After being told that Shirley's death was ruled a suicide, he decides to interrogate Kallen using Refrain, in order to confirm his suspicions that Lelouch has become Zero again. 15 "The Cs' World"
"Shī no Sekai" (Cの世界)
Makoto Baba Ichirō Ōkouchi July 20, 2008 March 8, 2009 Suzaku realizes he cannot stoop to Lelouch's level to achieve his goals and forgoes using Refrain on Kallen. Ohgi and Villetta meet in the woods, where she intends to kill him, but Ohgi confesses he has fallen in love with her. Sayoko interrupts their rendezvous. Nina and the In Vogue staff make their first successful bomb test, while Lelouch confronts the Emperor atop the Sword of Akasha. He learns his father has taken V.V.'s "Code", which has made him immortal. C.C. appears and reveals her wish to die, which would make Lelouch immortal as his father. However, she spares him that fate, transporting him to "C's World" to ensure his safety. There, Lelouch witnesses her past, but upon realizing her true desire, Lelouch returns to reality, proclaiming he shall be the only one to grant it. He attacks the Sword of Akasha with the Shinkirō and rescues C.C., only to find she has lost all her memories except those before receiving the power of Geass. 16 "United Federation of Nations Resolution Number One"
"Chōgasshūkoku Ketsugi Daiichigō" (超合集国決議第壱號)
Tatsuya Abe Ichirō Ōkouchi July 27, 2008 May 2, 2009 Forty-seven countries rally under the banner of the new United Federation of Nations, and their first declaration is war against Britannia to liberate Japan. In anticipation, the Knights of the Round and the bulk of Britannia's military are transferred to Japan. Nina asks to have the Lancelot equipped with her newly-developed F.L.E.I.J.A. (Field Limitary Effective Implosion Armament) warhead. The Emperor interrupts the Federation's announcement to challenge Zero to a battle for the world itself. Fearing for Nunnally's safety, Lelouch calls Suzaku and admits he is Zero, begging Suzaku to rescue her. Suzaku agrees, but only on the condition they meet alone at the Kururugi Shrine. 17 "The Taste of Humiliation"
"Tsuchi no Aji" (土の味)
Akira Hiroshi Kudo Ichirō Ōkouchi August 3, 2008 May 9, 2009 The battle for Japan gets underway, and Luciano and Bismark decimate the Black Knights, with only Li Xingke to keep them at bay. Suzaku and Lelouch meet to discuss Nunnally and after some initial animosity, Lelouch manages to win Suzaku over by agreeing to end the war and return peace to the world. However, Schneizel interrupts and has his personal guard arrest Lelouch, making him believe Suzaku has betrayed him. Schneizel and Lelouch have a private chat, until Lelouch is rescued by Guilford, who is under the influence of Lelouch's Geass. Using the G Trains, Lelouch shuts down the Tokyo Settlement; at the same time, his reinforcements emerge from the ocean, ready to take advantage of the opportunity. Meanwhile, the Emperor prepares for Ragnarök. 18 "Final Battle Tokyo II"
"Dainiji Tōkyō Kessen" (第二次東京決戦)
Akira Toba Ichirō Ōkouchi August 10, 2008 May 9, 2009 With the power disrupted, the Black Knights begin their assault on the Tokyo Settlement. Suzaku threatens to use the F.L.E.I.J.A. bomb, but Lelouch, having completely lost his trust in Suzaku, calls his bluff. Jeremiah and Guilford engage Suzaku, but Gino and Anya join the fray to even the odds. Rolo attempts to locate Nunnally in the government complex, but he secretly intends to kill her, while Sayoko frees Kallen and escorts her to the upgraded Guren Seiten Eight Elements-Type. Cornelia escapes confinement by the Black Knights and Kallen's new Knightmare Frame overwhelms Luciano and severely cripples the Lancelot. On the verge of death, Suzaku's Geass command activates and compels him to fire the F.L.E.I.J.A. Unfortunately, the bomb detonates over the government complex, obliterating a massive section of the settlement. Lelouch breaks down when Rolo tells him Nunnally was killed in the explosion. 19 "Betrayal"
Noriaki Akitaya Ichirō Ōkouchi August 17, 2008 May 16, 2009 A ceasefire is called so Schneizel can meet with the leaders of the Black Knights, but Lelouch is too devastated to attend. Schneizel reveals what he knows about Lelouch and his Geass, as well as the many people he has used it on; he uses a recording from Lelouch's meeting with Suzaku where Lelouch accepts blame for geassing Euphemia. In exchange for Japan's independence, the Black Knights agree to betray Lelouch. Lelouch is prepared to accept death, until Rolo, piloting the Shinkirō, rescues Lelouch and escapes the combined forces of the Black Knights and the Britannians. However, the excessive use of his Geass required to do so overtaxes his heart and he dies shortly after flying Lelouch to safety. Lelouch resolves to not waste the life given to him by Rolo, declaring he will kill the Emperor by his own hand. 20 "Emperor Dismissed"
"Kōtei Shikkaku" (皇帝失格)
Kazuo Miyake Ichirō Ōkouchi August 24, 2008 May 16, 2009 As the Emperor prepares to begin Ragnarök, Lelouch and Suzaku head to Kamine Island separately to face him. No longer restrained by his notions of wrong methods being meaningless, Suzaku strikes a deal with Schneizel to become the Knight of One, in exchange for assassinating the Emperor. Using his Geass to its full potential, Lelouch takes over much of the Britannian military forces on the island. Meanwhile, the leaders of the Black Knights decide to declare Zero dead, as the truth will be far more difficult to swallow, but Lelouch's actions quickly cast doubt on their story. Anya's mind is taken over by Marianne and she restores C.C.'s memories, putting their plan into motion. At Kamine Island, Suzaku is held at bay by Bismarck, while Lelouch marches into the Sword of Akasha, through the Thought Elevator, unopposed. Knowing he cannot kill his father, Lelouch destroys the entrance, planning to seal them both inside for eternity. 21 "The Ragnarök Connection"
"Ragunareku no Setsuzoku" (ラグナレクの接続)
Makoto Baba Ichirō Ōkouchi August 31, 2008 May 23, 2009 Within the Sword of Akasha, Lelouch learns the truth of his mother's death from the Emperor and Marianne herself. They reveal their intention and initiate Ragnarök and Lelouch almost reconciles with them, but changes his mind upon realizing the world the Emperor desires has no future. Evolving his Geass to its next level, Lelouch defeats his father with the help of the collective unconscious mind of humanity, the personification of the "gods" the Emperor sought to defeat, dissolving his parents from existence. One month later, with Ragnarök prevented and Suzaku at his side, Lelouch declares himself the new Emperor of Britannia, using his Geass to make all dissenters in the court acknowledge him as such. 22 "Emperor Lelouch"
"Kōtei Rurūshu" (皇帝ルルーシュ)
Shinda Yū Ichirō Ōkouchi September 7, 2008 May 23, 2009 Lelouch begins his reformation of Britannia, abolishing the aristocracy and Area system. The Knights of the Round attempt to remove Lelouch from power, but Suzaku, piloting the Lancelot Albion, easily defeats them. His position secure, Lelouch announces his intention to join the U.F.N., but when they demand he accept a limit to his voting power to prevent Britannia from attaining an automatic majority, Lelouch forces their hand by having Suzaku take the U.F.N. leaders hostage and Britannia's military surround Japan. In the commotion, the Britannian capital is obliterated by Schneizel aboard his new flying fortress, the Damocles. He reveals to Lelouch that Nunnally is alive, and she declares herself to be Lelouch and Suzaku's enemy. 23 "Schneizel's Guise"
"Shunaizeru no Kamen" (シュナイゼルの仮面)
Tatsuya Igarashi Ichirō Ōkouchi September 14, 2008 May 30, 2009 Schneizel unveils his plan to position the Damocles in such a way as to strike every warring nation in the world, thus enforcing peace through threat of annihilation. Cornelia objects, but is gunned down. Lelouch declares Nunnally his enemy during their conversation, but in private has trouble with the thought of fighting her. With some harsh words from Suzaku and C.C.'s comfort, Lelouch comes to his senses and focuses on his original task. Frustrated that she cannot fight or protect anyone, Nunnally decides to shoulder the sin of launching F.L.E.I.J.A. herself. Schneizel, backed by the Black Knights and the remaining Knights of the Round, clashes with Lelouch in the skies above Mount Fuji. Though Lelouch is able to destroy a fair portion of the Black Knights by detonating the sakuradite mines in Mount Fuji, the Damocles remains unassailable and its payload of F.L.E.I.J.A. warheads still looms over him. 24 "The Grip of Damocles"
"Damokuresu no Sora" (ダモクレスの空)
Akira Toba Ichirō Ōkouchi September 21, 2008 May 30, 2009 The Black Knights manage to board the Avalon, while Lelouch escapes in the Shinkirō with C.C. holding Kallen at bay long enough for him to escape. Using Nina's F.L.E.I.J.A. Eliminator, Lelouch and Suzaku successfully break into the Damocles. Believing Lelouch to be trapped, Schneizel sets the Damocles' self-destruct sequence and attempts to leave. However, Lelouch manages to outsmart Schneizel and uses his Geass to force him into obedience. Suzaku and Gino battle outside the fortress, with Gino unable to hold out against him. Using his last attack, Gino takes out the Damocles barrier, allowing Kallen to replace him in the sortie. Meanwhile, Lelouch confronts Nunnally, who reveals she has regained her sight. 25 "Re;"
Noriaki Akitaya Ichirō Ōkouchi September 28, 2008 June 6, 2009 Suzaku and Kallen's duel intensifies, leading to a final exchange which disables the Guren and destroys the Lancelot, and Jeremiah defeats Anya by destroying the Sutherland Sieg, then detonating the Sutherland core at close proximity to the Mordred. Lelouch uses his Geass to force Nunnally to give up the key of Damocles. With the fortress under his control, Lelouch unites the world under his tyrannical rule. Two months later, Lelouch prepares to oversee the public execution of the leaders of the U.F.N. and the Black Knights, until Suzaku, believed to be dead and now disguised as Zero, interrupts and kills Lelouch as he had ordered him to. As Lelouch is dying, a flashback to a conversation between Suzaku and Lelouch reveals his main plan. By directing the hatred of the world onto himself, Lelouch's death would serve to facilitate peace. He tells Suzaku that he must live as Zero now, even over his personal happiness; nobody must know Zero as anything else. Smiling, he repeats his earlier declaration that he destroys the world and creates it anew as a better place. With the fact that he has finally fulfilled his dream, to make the world a better place for Nunally, Lelouch passes away with a smile on his face. The aftermath is narrated by Kallen, who ends up forgiving Lelouch and explains how the world is much better off with all the energy being focused on reconstruction. In the back of a cart driven by an person whose face remains hidden, (it is Lelouch he took charles's code and he too has become immortal) a short monologue is then given by C.C about how Geass might not isolate people after all, ending with this question to be rhetorically asked to Lelouch.
