Did you honestly believe that by simply threatening me, I would shoot you?
Oh man… this show’s become a source of such levity for me every other day. It is giving me some belly laughs, let me tell you. I feel like I should be watching this in a theater with an audience that’s encouraged to participate like they would at a screening of ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW or THE ROOM. All this carnage ensues because the geass finally went off half-cocked like a soda bottle that’d been shaken too often. We told you to stop playing with it! We’d said it’d shoot your eye out! But you didn’t listen!
I just… I just… wow.
This was supposed to be some horrifying shocker, but it actually felt like some extended case of black humor. Like something I’d see on THE ADDAMS FAMILY.
My mind wanders more to all the possibilities of what might happen if Lelouch commanded people to do nonsensical or downright impossible things. “Suzaku, I’ve been listening to the Vapors a lot, lately, so now, I command you to start…TURNING JAPANESE!!!” Gallant sir Suzaku would then get into all kinds of Asimov-like logic conflicts while trying to fulfill that seemingly-redundant command.
Somehow, I turned around and lost track of how far along in the series we are. There are only four episodes left so, even though I’ve been told that there’s going to be a big cliffhanger for season two, it’s pretty clear we’re angling along in the end game right now. There’s obviously no going back with this, now. Even despite Euphemia’s frankly ditzy attempts to diffuse Lelouch’s fury, his hand was forced to draw a line in the sand and now, more than ever, it’s going to be blood for blood with the Brittanians.
But why do I still feel like all these kids are still going to have another regular school day before the day of decision? It’s the end of the semester, right? Don’t they have a prom to worry about?
