So now Schneizel appears in the OP with the main cast, and has his own pannel in the ED, which means we will probably be getting more of him. About goddamn time, Sunrise!

I think it's safe to say he didn't kill Marianne (since this would be the most obvious choice, and wouldn't make much of a LOL PLOT TWIST the likes of which Sunrise loves), but he probably holds the answers as to who did it. Also, he knows Zero is Lelouch (even Euphie could tell). So, will he finally have the guts to stand up to the emperor and claim the throne? This is what the OP suggests, to me at least...
