My thoughts of Episode 1 can be found here!
Now for episode 2......bwahahaha!!!! OH FU** YES!!!
[spoiler]So THAT'S what happened after Episode 25 of Season 1! Both gunshots were fired, but Suzaku was able to knock Zero's gun out of range and was able to get rid of the bomb he was carrying. He then captured Lelouch and brought him to the Emperor. With this action, Suzaku was appointed to be one of the Knights of the Round Table.
And the Emperor has Geass as well which explains Lelouch's "odd" behavior last episode! This might explain a lot of the other events that are lingering.[/spoiler]
Back in the present, interestingly enough, this episode played out in a similar matter like Episode 2 last season. [spoiler]With Lelouch's Geass back, he at his usual tactical command post directing the Order of the Black Knights to take out some of the Brittanian soldiers and then placed bombs at the foundation of the tower. And just like last season, a mysterious Knightmare (who's abilities are on par with Suzaku's Lancelot) appeared which nearly ruined Lelouch's plan. Luckily Lelouch was able to set off the bombs which destroyed the tower (which allowed them to escape) and the falling debris crushed the governor-general.
And then Zero makes an official announcement across the airwaves that HE'S BACK!!!
Now as for the revelations that'll lead to more future speculations.... [spoiler]- The Emperor showed Suzaku the floating shrine which is a weapon to "destroy" God known as the Sword of Akasha.
- Rollo is the one piloting that Knightmare, and he has Geass as well!
And now I wait for another week!
