Emperor Lelouch is the twenty-second episode of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2.
Lelouch begins his reformation of Britannia, abolishing the aristocracy and Area system. The Knights of the Round attempt to remove Lelouch from power, but Suzaku, piloting the Lancelot Albion, easily defeats them. His position secure, Lelouch announces his intention to join the U.F.N., but when they demand he accept a limit to his voting power to prevent Britannia from attaining an automatic majority, Lelouch forces their hand by having Suzaku take the U.F.N. leaders hostage and Britannia's military surround Japan. In the commotion, the Britannian capital is obliterated by Schenizel aboard his new flying fortress, the Damocles. He reveals to Lelouch that Nunnally is alive, and she declares herself to be Lelouch and Suzaku's enemy.
