Gyakushū no Shokeidai
Counterattack at the Gallows
Lelouch deduces the nature of Rolo’s Geass and convinces Rolo to spare him; in return, he will hand over C.C. Meanwhile, Li Xingke kills the High Eunuch, Gao Hai, and takes command of the Chinese Federation consulate. As the deadline approaches, Guilford prepares to execute the captured Black Knights until Zero appears. Lelouch collapses the flooring, causing the Britannian military to fall into Chinese territory where they are politically restrained from attacking. While the Black Knights rescue the prisoners, Rolo tries to kill Lelouch for his betrayal. Lelouch arranges a charade to seemingly save Rolo’s life; using this and their pseudo-brotherly relationship, he convinces Rolo to join the Black Knights.
