I found it interesting that the Emperor referred to the place that he showed Suzaku as the Sword of Akasha. Akasha is apparently the Sanskrit word for aether, and aether, in Greek mythology, is the personification of the clear upper air of the sky. What’s more, as the Wikipedia page for aether points out, this concept is linked to Brihaspati - or the planet Jupiter. Jupiter, of course, is significant in CODE GEASS because that’s the planet we see in the mysterious Geass sequences like the one last week when Lelouch got his memory back. It’s also possible that Jupiter is the God that the Emperor is referring to, but it’s less clear why he would want to destroy Jupiter. In any case, with everything connected like this, I’m curious to see what the ultimate scope of the series is (i.e. are they eventually going to be fighting on a different metaphysical plane).
