You ask Jury about the other agents not discovering the blood samples in Dr. Finch's house--and if Jury had anything to do with that.

She nods. "Samples of your blood, test results, analysis of how it works... I don't want the other agents getting their hands on all that. I also didn't want them to arrest Dr. Finch, or turn him into a science experiment. I tried to keep them out of his business as much as I could. I didn't know if he was one of yours or just researching on his own, but I didn't want to see him treated like a criminal."

You thank her for taking care of Dr. Finch. You also ask about the e-mails in Howler's apartment--you explain their contents, and ask if they could be enough to get Carpenter arrested.

"I don't doubt they're his, but without being able to definitively link them to Carpenter the department will probably fight me on it. It would be a good start, though--the e-mails themselves, plus some kind of proof that it IS Carpenter's e-mail address... that would be enough to make an arrest."

You ask about the address she has tied to Carpenter. She tells you Carpenter's address(?).

You also ask if there's anywhere she knows of that you could be safe--that with Dr. Finch's place compromised, you're left to bounce between motels.

Jury hesitates... but then nods. "There's an abandoned government site in the middle tiers. It's secure and well hidden, though you may have to circumvent the security system. It's been so long since it was used, I don't know if the lock would still be active or not."

She gives you the address of an abandoned government bunker.

"You sure it'll be safe?," Michelle asks. "Like... the government would know about a government site, right?"

Jury shakes her head. "No. Not this government, not that bunker. I'd be surprised if anyone living today knows about that one."

You also ask if Jury has any questions about your dad that you might be able to answer. Jury shakes her head.

"Knowing for sure that he hooked up with an alien pretty much answers most of my questions. How did he stay alive so long? How did he hide from the government?" Jury just shakes her head. "Aliens."

this guy is saying what we are all thinking. we must hug everyone not trying to kill us. who knows, maybe we can save the day with hugs. we're probably going to have to do it with moltoves and forced blood transfusions.

I second hugging Jury

Let's make a gimmick out of this hug everyone who doesn't try/want to kill us and I third this

now that we've got ol' giorgio out of the way, ask her if she kept the stuff she took from finch's place (namely his research) or if she destroyed it. if she still has it, finch would probably like it back. if she doesn't, that's fine. we can cleantex him later if he wants and he can re-record his notes.

thank her for all her help. she didn't have to help us at all, and she's given us more than she ever needed to. i don't know that she's quite on hugging terms yet, but a firm handshake and a heart-felt "thank you" would be good. we'll see what we can do about the emails and linking them to carpenter. if we can, we'll be in touch. same for if we get anything out of the address she gave us. i think between fuse and michelle, we can probably handle the security system in the bunker. it'll be nice to have a place we can finally rest easy after the last few days.

I am so excited about the fact there's a secret government bunker we can potentially camp out in <333 sounds like a great a new base of operations! Let's go check it ouuuut (very carefully though, who knows what's there now)

EDIT: I'll second the firm handshake and a heartfelt 'thank you', by the way. This situation doesn't seem to call for a hug. -v-;

OOoh Oooh, can we get a purple tent?
Mochi 27th Sep 2017, 9:22 PM edit delete reply
hopefully just a lot of dust and a lot of spiders (sorry michelle)
Mochi 27th Sep 2017, 8:54 PM edit delete reply
oh also, do tell her there's a couple fresh corpses in the hospital after today including one bio-mech that could definitely be linked back to carpenter. the other four were trying to kill us, and one of them really deserved to die a horrible death.

I agree with Mochi's 848 comment and this one together.
rufiangel 27th Sep 2017, 10:15 PM edit delete reply
Maybe it's fair to warn her that if she tries to switch on the surveillance feed, it directly gets Carpenter's attention, and there's no telling what he'd do to get his hands on Jury or compromise her (which would be really bad after everything we've told her).
Mochi 27th Sep 2017, 10:20 PM edit delete reply
you know, that's a sure-fire way to prove he's connected to the hospital...

but yeah, no. if she does go there, she should under no circumstances turn the computer on. that would be bad for her.

Ask her if she wants a syringe of our blood. For any purpose, really. Don't be insistent on it, if she says no say okay.
Abandoned Fed bunker, huh? Sweet. Sound like we even have a 'fuck off already gensai' button around in case of invasion.
Mochi 27th Sep 2017, 10:09 PM edit delete reply
she's an android, our blood isn't going to be of any use to her.
rufiangel 27th Sep 2017, 10:13 PM edit delete reply
Technically Dr. Finch had already offered it to her, and I think she destroyed it XD;;; so prooobably not?

"She gives you the address of an abandoned government bunker."

Woohoo, secret underground lair!

Jury being robocop means she can't be queened or blooded. Which is good...? I think...?
