    Sounds a lot like American politics as usual.

    This is starting to look less like politics and more like a rogue AI or insane Topsider took over Endtown.

    The more this storyline drags on the more meh I feel about the whole thing. The mob scene was interesting but the overall story arc feels like it’s been going on twice as long as Endtown 1.0 and Ballad of Holly & Wally did.

    Wonder who’s controlling the strings on the puppet High Council. Someone is clearly in charge. Doesn’t sound like an average citizen participant.

    So now the High Council has everyone, rats and Velda included, where they want them. I’m beginning to wonder if there is a Topsider agent provocateur (or sympathizer) amongst them, now showing his true colors.

    Maybe an evil version of Aaron Marx?

    Maybe Sparkplug is the power behind the High Council.

    Did he really die, or just go completely to his madness place?

    Someone or something is trying very hard to get that “trial” to prove a point. It cannot only be to punish the ladies or humiliate b>somebody<b, be he worthy of this interest or worthy of being the …… Well, I again think of “send in the clowns”. So far we have only two. Allgood and Jake. and maybe even our favorite duck. ( not the one with the gun)
    Just like Aaron to give us a REALLY NASTY weekend.
    Blessed Be

    I wouldn’t go so far as to say I’m meh about it, but the story is definitely taking a turn against what I wanted to see. I really did was to see the Rats finally bare their teeth and get some revenge.

    Buuut we’ll just see where this goes, still has me very interested, just wanted a bigger war I suppose.

    I’m wanting to see the rats finally joining the REST of the Endtowner citizens and become more balanced members of society, instead of the somewhat mindless-seeming minions they’ve often acted like…

    I’d like to see this shake them up a bit, and have them finally come forward as meaningful individuals who show that they recognize how wrong their sycophancy has been all this time…

    Well said Jadugara… Once the Rats stop being the mindless puppets of the “hidden governance” the sooner things will return to a stable environment.

    Were I the rat, I might say, ‘Insect? Every see army ants take down larger animals? We’ve got the guns… maybe it’s time we made the rules.’

    Glasses: “But, the mob has all the food production services! And they’re the ones that go out on scavenger trips to bring back ammo for our guns! What are we supposed to do if our ammo and food run out?”
    HC: “You could go topside and scavenge, yourselves.”
    Glasses: “But, that’s madness!”
    HC: “Excuse me, did I say ‘could’? I meant ‘will’.”

    Makes me think that since Linda has yet to testify, this whole thing revolves around having her testify…

    It does sound like a rogue ai. " the process must continue" and “a conclusion must be reached” are things that a computer-like intelligence would worry about. Illogical beings can leave things unfinished in the middle. A computer program would go “crazy” if told to stop something in the middle.
    I suspect though with all the posturing that the HC did with the lieutenant, that if the rats did decide to take it into heir own hands and end the trial and free everyone, the HC really couldn’t stop them. The I intimidation that was used on the lieutenant to try to make him toe the line is interesting to say he least.
    Another rogue AI: there was no pause when their families were mentioned. The HC are mutants. They would have instinctively paused to consider those they love, no matter how they felt about the trial.

    @RockHouse

    I was wondering about the evil Aaron Marx angle myself.
