Forty-seven countries rally under the banner of the new United Federation of Nations, and their first declaration is war against Britannia to liberate Japan. In anticipation, the Knights of the Round and the bulk of Britannia's military are transferred to Japan. Nina asks to have the Lancelot equipped with her newly-developed F.L.E.I.J.A. (Field Limitary Effective Implosion Armament) warhead. The Emperor interrupts the Federation's announcement to challenge Zero to a battle for the world itself. Fearing for Nunnally's safety, Lelouch calls Suzaku and admits he is Zero, begging Suzaku to rescue her. Suzaku agrees, but only on the condition they meet alone at the Kururugi Shrine.
