You take one of the weird posters to try and get the symbol identified later.

You also have Fuse password protect Grizwald's message.

You start searching Howler's room for any hints to the downstairs computer's password. Thus far, you're coming up empty handed. Nothing on his desk, nothing under his mattress, nothing stashed in any of his empty containers...

A grin slowly works across Michelle's face. "Y'know, I might have a way around it... but Goggles ain't gonna like it."

"Goggles?" Fuse rolls his eyes. "If I have to get a nickname, I want one of those smokes to go with it."

Michelle pulls out a cigarette and hands it to him. "Deal. So, back at the hospital, Blondie tried puttin' the whammy on one of the computers... in the operation room, I think?"

"Wait, does the whammy work on things that aren't people?"

Michelle nods. "Oh yeah. That was the first thing she whammied was bandages. Anyway, she tried to whammy a computer, but she don't know enough about computers to make 'em do anything."

Fuse nods, lighting his newly acquired cigarette. "Alright. What does that have to do with me? You want me to teach her how to work a computer?"

"Weeell..." Michelle grins wider. "The way Finch explained it, she can sorta... "sync" minds with people she's put the whammy on."

What you can see of Fuse's expression tightens up. He takes a long drag. "Like... sync how?"

"Sync, like, she figured out Dr. Finch's social security number."

"No. Nooope."

"C'mon, Goggles! You wanna get into that computer, right?"

Fuse holds his breath for a second. He points... he grimaces... but he relents. "Only. ONLY computer stuff."

Michelle looks at you. She's smiling smugly, but you've not actually done this before. (The thing with Dr. Finch was an accident.) In theory, you should be able to bleed into the computer, then use Fuse's understanding of what the computer needs to do to coax it past its defenses.

In theory.

You are also still hopped up on cleantex, which may present a problem. If you come back to this later, after you've sobered up, there's no guarantee that everything will be intact.

Fuse: show the Jane Doe the creepy altar room while your there.

Poor Fuse, that can't sound fun. Can we wait for the cleantex to wear off, or will that take forever? :'D

It may take a while.

So we can't even splash some water on our faces and sober up abit?

It'll take much more than a splash of water to keep things from getting

possibly weird

Don't suppose fuse would know of a way to speed up the effects of cleantex to make it wear off faster or something.

If he doesn't... well odds are good that when we come back here the whole place will have been turned over and smashed to pieces.... and possibly burned to the ground. Gonna have to risk mind melding or whatever ill effect cleantex will have on Jane's powers.

Side note: if Jane's blood can give the boot to whatever hivemind running Queen is, does that make her an Empress by comparison?
