You do a little practice with hearing voices, just to be sure. It seems like the rat should be able to hear words, and for you to understand them through the rat, just fine. You also refine your technique a bit, playing to the rat's instincts to "trick" it into doing things more smoothly.

You also get it to dance, or at least as much as a rat can.

You ask Dr. Finch about his hair.

"Oh, er, well..." He clears his throat. "I... just... have been so busy with lab work that I haven't gotten around to... dyeing it."

He seems rather embarrassed about the fact that he's going gray.

"But! But but but, if anyone else asks, the sheer stress of all this, and the excruciating intensity of my focus, has driven my hair to shift hues. It's much more impressive than Dr. Finch has lost track of time, and forgot to dye his hair."

Well, that's one less burden on Jane's shoulders. Let Red know about that as well.

You all had a pretty heavy day, so it's probably best to go sleep now, unless there's a reason to rush into the next part of the plan.

Hmm, does our Red know what we know by virtue of being produced by us, or do we need to keep it (her?) updated on things?

I don't think we necessarily need to update her on things? She knew already about Dr. Finch being impaled by a bone and Michelle trying to strangle us against her will and whatnot without us having to relay any of that to her.

I guess it's just to drive the point home that whatever Jane did won't hurt her friends in the immediate future.

............ XDDD Well I'm mightily relieved that was all it was, I was busy concocting all these horrifying implications from Jane's blood. Dangnamit Finch. (Watches the chicken-dance Finch GIF to feel better) I adore how embarrassed he is about this though XD it's a dapper look, sir, no need to be ashamed!

Also MM I love the dancing rat LOL <33

As a side-note, uh, is this a good time to dye our hair if Dr. Finch has any lying around? I like that we're called 'blondie', but I also think practically speaking it might reduce our chances of being noticed by Queen. Thoughts?

Also, this has only occurred to me now but... is there anything we can do about our missing eye? :'D So belated, I know, but just suddenly thought to ask.

The soundtrack I imagine for this scene:

A bit of grey tends to push me towards thinking there's a good bit of experience and wisdom there. Also, doesn't look too bad admittedly.

If this club has a rave floor. Lil rat is now very capable of hitting the jive.

I can imagine it now. Disco lights, rat doin some sick spins on the floor, double grapevines with some retro doublestep moves.

♪Heavy beat, smellin sweet, then he finds some food to eat.♪
