In the next eps, the order get owned, and Nunally brings back the SAR. And Lelouch makes a deal with Suzaku with regards to the SAR. The details aren't spelled out in the magazines, but given what happens in the eps afterwards it's probably something along the lines of "Don't finish wiping out my order and let up get the hell out of Japan, and I'll promise the Japanese that Nunally isn't planning to trap and kill them all.
Anyway, after that the show will shift focus to China where apparently due to China's severe economic problems, the Eunuchs are trying to form an alliace with Britannia by marrying the loli empress to Schneizel. Since Heero Yui probably wants the loli poon for himself, he'll be making a deal with Lulu, who won't want a Britannian/Chinese alliance.
