As the Emperor prepares to begin Ragnarök, Lelouch and Suzaku head to Kamine Island separately to face him. No longer restrained by his notions of wrong methods being meaningless, Suzaku strikes a deal with Schneizel to become the Knight of One, in exchange for assassinating the Emperor. Using his Geass to its full potential, Lelouch takes over much of the Britannian military forces on the island. Meanwhile, the leaders of the Black Knights decide to declare Zero dead, as the truth will be far more difficult to swallow, but Lelouch's actions quickly cast doubt on their story. Anya's mind is taken over by Marianne and she restores C.C.'s memories, putting their plan into motion. At Kamine Island, Suzaku is held at bay by Bismarck, while Lelouch marches into the Sword of Akasha, through the Thought Elevator, unopposed. Knowing he cannot kill his father, Lelouch destroys the entrance, planning to seal them both inside for eternity.
