Hangyaku no Lelouch 4 - Sono Na wa Zero - その名はゼロ
Suzaku is being interrogated by Jeremiah, who inquires if Suzaku knows anything
about the gun in front of him. As it turned out, Jeremiah simply accused Suzaku based on the fact that he is the son of Japan's last Prime Minister. In other words, this is an interrogation where Suzaku can't win because he's already presumed guilty in the first place. Suzaku gets beaten up when he claims that he has never seen the gun. At the same time, Lelouch is placing Nunnaly into her bed, who is worried about Suzaku . In order to comfort his sister, Lelouch tells Nunnaly that the news about Suzaku was a lie.
Meanwhile, inside the rebel's base, the rebel leader, Ohgi, has a fight with one of his men. After the man left, Ohgi sighs at the photographs on the table, telling his presumably dead comrade, Naoto, that as he thought, he could not be a good leader. At the same time, Lelouch is using his Geass power on someone who tells him that his order has been followed as specified. The guy also tells Lelouch that after this, he'll destroy all of the evidence and forgets about the order.
The next day inside Ashford College, the Headmaster tells the students that Clovis's death is a
truly heartbreaking incident. Inside his laboratory, Lloyd laments that the missing part of Lancelot: its pilot, Suzaku, who managed to achieve 94% operation efficiency with the giant scrap metal. Lloyd also reveals that Jeremiah has used Suzaku as a scapegoat to destroy the honorary Britannia system. His intention is to ensure that pure-blood retains control of the Britannia Army. At the same time at Ashford, Rival asks Lelouch what he's going to do after this, suggesting that they go gambling. Shirley, of course protests about it. Lelouch agrees with Shirley's order because he's found a more challenging things to do. At the same time, Kallen has now made her way into a
half-damaged Tokyo Tower.
Her comrades have also arrived there, thinking that the person that they talked to was actually
Kururugi Suzaku. They're a bit concerned because Suzaku was captured not long after the phone call and thinks that this place could be dangerous. All of a sudden, they hear an announcement asking Kallen to come to the service counter in regards to a lost property. Upon arriving there, Kallen receives a cellphone with "From ZERO" written in the message area. Lelouch uses the phone to instruct Kallen and her rebel friends to board a train. Meanwhile, Jeremiah orders his men to put Suzaku on military court tomorrow night. Back inside the train, Kallen receives a phone call from Zero who asks her to see her right and left hand side and informs him what she sees. Kallen tells him that on the right is Britannia's city and on her left is the Eleven's old city.
Upon hearing the answer, Zero instructs her and her rebel scum to come to the front of the train.
Unknown to Kallen and her rebel friends, everyone else in the train has red-eye now because they are
being controlled by Lelouch.They are also unaware that there are many product placement for Pizza Hut on every single compartment in the car. Once they arrived on the front compartment, Kallen is
surprised to see a masked man wearing a cape. Zero immediately gets to the point and informs the
rebel that terror won't defeat Britannia because it's just seen as childish attack. He also tells
them that their enemies are not the Britannian citizens but Britannia the country. Because they are
about to get into war, he doesn't want to involve civilians. Kallen is fed up with Zero's speech and
asks him why they should trust words that came from someone who won't even show his face. The others
agree and insists that Zero takes off his mask.
Upon hearing this Zero promises to show them not his face but the power that he has. He argues
that if he can achieve something that is impossible then surely they'll believe in him a little bit.
Meanwhile, the leader of Japanese liberation front, General Toudou, have decided that they have no
obligations to help Suzaku from his current predicament. Lloyd also informs Suzaku that there are
some truths about his case which were not revealed. Upon hearing this Suzaku tells Lloyd that if
that's how the world works, then he has no regrets about it. Later on that night, Suzaku is taken
to the military court and the whole event is televised to the public. Cecile laments to Lloyd that
despite knowing Suzaku's innocence, they can't do anything about it. Inside their base, the rebels
wonder if Zero, Kallen, and Ohgi will be able to pull off what they're about to do.
Jeremiah is informed by his men that there is a car coming their way. That car turns out to be
Clovis's car. The car, however, has been outfitted with something else behind it. Inside the car,
Kallen is trembling, remembering how Zero once told them that he only needed her and Ohgi to help
him with the plan. The car eventually stops in front of Jeremiah's Knightmare troops and Zero makes
his first appearance in front of the public. Before Zero can say anything else apart from his name,
however, Jeremiah fires a shot to order several Frames to capture him. After doing this, Jeremiah
orders Zero to open his mask but instead of opening his mask, Zero snaps his fingers and unveils a
device which he claims to be a poisonous capsule. Suzaku recognizes that the capsule is anything but
poisonous but because his neck is wired to an electric device, he is unable to tell others the truth. Meanwhile TV producer, Ried, decides to take a handheld camera to get a closer look of Zero's
Meanwhile, Jeremiah asks Zero what is his demand and not surprisingly, Zero wants Suzaku to be
released. Jeremiah refuses, claiming that Suzaku killed Clovis but Zero dispute the claim outright
by saying that he was the one who killed Clovis. Everyone is shocked to hear this revelation
especially poor Karen who is now shaking inside the car. Zero threatens Jeremiah by saying that if
he were to die, the poison will be unleashed upon the public. Zero then orders Kallen to move the
car forward as he opens a small opening so his left eye can see Jeremiah directly. Thanks to Geass
power, Zero manages to control Jeremiah, ordering the man to ignore what has happened thus far.
Jeremiah also orders Suzaku to be released. Zero and Kallen then walk over to meet Suzaku while Ohgi
operates some kind of Frames from beneath the bridge.
Villeta climbs into her Frames trying to stop Zero but Zero presses a controller on his hand,
unleashing what looks like a gas to the public. Viletta also unable to shoot Zero because Jeremiah,
who's still under Zero's influence tries to stop her. While this happens, Zero takes Suzaku jumping
off the bridge while Kallen follows suit. Ohgi then unleashes some kind of a net from his Frames to
prevent their fall. Jeremiah's right hand man immediately starts shooting at Ohgi but Jeremiah, who's still under Zero's control stops him with his gun. In the aftermath, Ohgi tells his group that he believes Zero can lead them in the war against Britannia. At the same time, Zero is in the middle of convincing Suzaku to become his ally if Suzaku wants to change the world. Suzaku, however, is more interested to know if Zero was the one who killed Clovis. In reply, Zero points out that this is war so he asks Suzaku if there needs to be an excuse for taking out an enemy's general.
Zero also explains the gas was just a bluff so no one actually died. He then asks Suzaku to join
him again, pointing out that Britannia is not a country worth serving. Suzaku agrees that might be the case but because of that he wants to return to Britannia and make it into a good country from the inside. Suzaku then tries to leave since he needs to attend a military court in one hour. Suzaku knows he'll be charged with false accusation but he also knows that if he doesn't return, the life of Elevens and honorary Britannians like himself will become oppressed. Zero fumes upon hearing this, calling Suzaku a fool. Suzaku tells Zero that a long time ago, his friend often said the same thing. He, however, feels that if he has to die, he may as well do it for the sake of others. Suzaku then thanks Zero for saving him and before walking of the hiding place. Meanwhile, Nannaly is happy to hear the accusation against Suzaku could be dropped. From her right side, a door is opened but instead of Sayako, C.C appears from behind it.
