Summary

 

Rivalz Cardemonde works on his motorcycle, and Suzaku tells him a fake story that he met Lelouch at a resort when they were younger. Rivalz says that Suzaku is the first person he's met who knows anything about Lelouch's childhood because he never speaks of it. Rivalz asks Suzaku for a particular wrench, and Suzaku instead gives him the correct one for the job. Rivalz is amazed that Suzaku knows about motorcycles, and Suzaku explains that the person who took care of him before he joined the military rode the same model. Thus, it was Suzaku's job to service and clean it, though he was never allowed to ride it. Rivalz asks if he lived with an older sister or mother, but Suzaku says that he has no family. Rivalz apologizes for asking something inappropriate, and Suzaku tells him that it's ok because it's the truth. Rivalz asks Suzaku where he's living, and Suzaku explains that his technical unit is currently based in the university across the street, so he's living there. Rivalz asks Suzaku if he wants to be his roommate, but Suzaku politely declines and thanks him for the offer. At the Lancelot hangar, Cecile Croomy bugs Lloyd Asplund to unpack his things, but he says he'll leave it to her. He says she knows his work style by now, and he thinks back to how many years have passed since they met in a university laboratory. Lloyd realizes that he's able to do as he wishes thanks to Prince Schneizel El Britannia. Suzaku arrives and reports for duty, but Cecile tells him to be informal and put all military and social ranks aside. She tells him to treat the hangar like it's their home, because in a way it is. Suzaku informally announces that he's back, and Lloyd jumps up and says "welcome back!"

 

Commentary

 

Set after episode 6, this picture drama sheds some more light on various characters. Rivalz and Suzaku have become fast friends, lthough Suzaku has to use a fake story about meeting Lelouch to cover up Lelouch's identity. We find out that after the war, Suzaku lived with some woman before he joined the Britannian military. We also see more of Lloyd's eccentricities, and it turns out that he and Cecile have been working together for a long time. All in all, this clip is what you'd expect from a picture drama.
