Zero just keeps getting pwned every other episode nowadays. Whatever happened to the grand master of scheming 10 moves in advanced that captured the hearts of everyone last season? Charles’s memory altering Geass must have caused Lelouch to drop a few screws in his head.
Not only did Xing-ke managed to read Zero’s every move, he even allowed Zero to think he had the upper hand when the entire time the Black Knights were dancing on Xing-ke’s palm. To top it off, the Chinese Federation still has Kallen hostage. I thought it was rather humiliating for Zero to have Diethard talk to him like that as well.
Strongest Knightmare Frame around. Also the ugliest.
Damn mad Indian scientist. If you could create such overly high-spec’ed Knightmare Frame, why didn’t you do that with Guren or with Gawain before? And it puzzles me that an Indian-manufactured Knightmare Frame was given the name “Shen Hu” even though it wasn’t meant to be give to the Chinese Federation in the first place.
I actually had hope for a brilliant episode during the Black Knight’s counter-attack to rescue Kallen, but that ended up in a very disappointing manner. Zero should have tried to win Xing-ke over to his side like he did with Rollo, but instead he made him into a bitter enemy he cannot defeat both in strategy and combat.
Zero’s big talk about how he will teach Xing-ke the difference between strategy and real-time combat was back crumbling down at him. Definitely not good for morale, espcially now that they’re trapped in a tomb no less.
“Just wait til next episode. I’ll pwn the whole lot of you in a single move.”
At least he seems to be confident at turning the tables of their hopeless situation around next episode. Even without Xing-ke and Shen Hu to worry about, there’s 3 Knights of Round and Avalon. The Black Knights are missing Kallen and her Guren Kashoushiki. Although judging by his performance lately, it might not work out as he hoped. Subete wa keikaku doori… janai.
But the biggest surprise and mystery of the day was…
Double-U Tee Eff?
OMGWTFBBQ!? What is he doing back in Ashford when he’s trapped in a tomb surrounded in all directions!?
