You draw your gun--finger off the trigger for now--and point it at the woman. You tell her not to get any closer. You tell her you just want to save your friend, turn off the shield generator, and get out.

"Oh, sure. But we can't letcha do that. You're the devil, see."

You pull out one of the masks and show it to her.

"What?," she scoffs beneath her mask. "Y'think I'm scared to die? We all know what we're in for. If we gotta blow this place to hell to stop you, then that's what it takes."

You double check Fuse's supply of ammuniton. Fuse has seven bullets remaining. You try to take a better look at the device against the far wall, which you're pretty sure is the shield generator. Unfortunately, you've never seen one before; you're not too sure where it would be most vulnerable.

This is getting frustrating. Stupid junkie cult.

Link with Dr Finch and relay what you're seeing. With luck that model has a jack or another socket in the front you can hit with a "homing" thrown syringe. Being on level, Jane should control the trajectory fine.
Throwing the syringe around miss Tigerface should take her offguard and succeed, unlike our earlier attempt.

When the syringe hits, inject the blood in the generator, and turn it off, while walking away as fast as level allows.

man, fuck diplomacy, then. have fuse come around the corner and shoot her in the torso -- it's the largest part of her, he's less likely to miss -- while we drop to the floor and throw a syringe at her. we either get lucky with the shot and take her out, or we get control. either way, she's not going to have a good time.

I would like to pose two questions to tiger face.
1) What's with the masks? So far everyone but Nimrod has worn one.
2) Is that a bandage on your hand? What happened?

While that is being asked, do the following:
Sync with Finch and see if any of those items on the bench are acidic, poisonous or just otherwise nasty.
Sync with Michelle and ask he if she has any information on the shield generator.
Also sync Michelle and Fuse have him ready to move (In case we don't have options we are ready for the next comic).

she said on the last page that it wasn't her blood.

You typically can't tell what chemicals are from a glance like that. Many ways to make anything any given colour.
Safety first.

I get that it's not her blood. But what is with the bandage? Do we know it's not a dead man's switch so that if she dies the field doesn't shrink killing all of us?

As far as the chemicals, was kinda hoping for a label. These guys don't seem smart enough to peel all the labels just to mess us up.

Isn't that just gloves ? Standard practice when cooking chems. Her mask serves as protection goggles.

The shield expanded without pushing anything out... don't think it can change size and affect matter at the same time.

If the masks was just her "Goggles" then why did clown boy have one? His was a welding mask no less, not easy to see out of unless it auto dims. And the clown? What reason did he have?

The guy in the locker had the welding mask... it's been a long day.

Get exasperated and exclaim something around the lines of "I didn't ask to get forcefully injected with Queen, I thought I was a perfectly normal human before that happened! I don't really even want to do any of this but I'm not about to just let someone kill me for no good reason. I didn't even know your church existed until a few days ago! Your 'devil' is anyone who can be immune to Queen's influence."

That said, you should be prepared to stab her with one of your blood needles or something seeing how that's likely to get her Auto-Piloted by Queen if she's taken it... which she likely has.
