Allgood didn’t shoot (or technically didn’t ATTEMPT to shoot) Jackrabbit. He didn’t have it in him to pull the trigger. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s not a failing of his personality. It means he’s normal. The holding back from blowing out his enemy’s brains. The holding back from exposing Linda as a former Topsider. I’m beginning to find a smidgeon of interest in Allgood. He may have inner qualities we haven’t seen yet.The bravest thing he could do now would be to forget about the trial and take the elevator back down to the town. To swallow his pride and his dignity and start living as one of the people, temper the outrage of his views, listen to others and be prepared for the fact he will be publically vilified, much more unfairly than he deserves. He will feel the weight of Jackrabbit’s PR machine. He has been badly done by. People in the street will hate him. They may beat him up. They may kill him. The real bravery will show in a decision such as this. It would be noble, reckless and unhelpful. But… But, it would only take someone listening to him, listening to the true story, straight from the heart, to start to put together a different version from the Jackrabbit Spin. Maybe he would go to the Endtown Examiner. There are other journalists. He may find one of then and pour it out. It would be good reading. Actually, the new ‘Generalissimo J’ may not go back to work there, if he’s the new leader. Or he may commandeer the whole press and have a total monopoly on speech. Bet we have Albert, who served on the council and found out how dysfunctional it was. Algood’s story would make some kind of sense to him.We have Mayor Walter Trimble, who I imagine has the power to rally the best qualities from a beaten soldier on his knees. The panda may be turned around into a loyal campaigner for freedom against tyranny.We have Wally Wallechinsky, who may hate Allgood for his persuection in the trial, but would hate Jackrabbit the instigator of the imprisonment of Holly, his beating at the hands of the rats and the townsfolk who died on the street and in his arms.Jackrabbit assumed Allgood would be too scared to return to Endtown, choosing exile instead. He’s betting his future on it. All we need is for Allgood to do the brave thing and face up to the mess he made, and the rabbit’s plans may start to unravel.
