You put the empty extinguisher aside, and you hesitantly pull out your phone.

You check who it is first. It's a text from Lydia.

The text just says

Leave the Can, Edison can be their problem. Time to Bug out.
Edit: Oh right, leave a note to the effects of "Please dump this in an Oceanic Trench. Oh and Carpenter's the main reason Mack's in a coma. His counter measures towards unwanted guests seem to be more blow up the house rather than prevent them from getting inside in the first place. I just want to know why the fuck you people have wanted to kill me before I even knew you guys were involved with Queen.
P.S. Thale is working on becoming the head of a hivemind. Food for thought."

She's a reporter. You get the headline first and THEN you get the details that show the headline was completely misleading. X3

Shirai did say she'd return for Edison, so I'm not surprised they're on their way to school already.

I would suggest we pick up the pieces of Jury asap and just leg it, and tell Dr. Finch to stay put after all, then.

Can we leave our bio-camera somewhere discreet so we can spy on Shirai and whoever else she comes with?

Not sure we want to leave Edison here, but... maybe that's the best course of action?

I would REALLY not like to give Edison back. Shirai is a crass idiot who swings way, way too wide. I half expect she'd do worse if given a second attempt (like, say, let Edison kill a whole bunch of people to lure us into ANOTHER trap and then have the building rigged to explode).
I also like it because it might play into the fear Macland instilled in her: ""You! Don't! Get it, Gesenai! She's gotten a hundred times more dangerous than she was at the hospital! She's taking over people, what part of that don't you understand?! You send five guards after her, she walks away with five guards! You're FUCKING the club over, you're exposing us, AND you're giving that filthy nurse more rope TO HANG US WITH!..."

If we have to abandon it then let's. But if we CAN take it, let's remove all the toys we can from Shirai.
Minor EDIT: Also it seems we have a number of Edison fans among us. >:3

True, I don't like leaving her much either because Shirai is a moron, but... maybe we can meet Dr. Finch halfway out then, rather than telling him to stay put and meeting him at the bunker. And do that tracker tracing thing on the canister.

(EDIT: Pretty sure this is exactly what someone suggested before XD)

4 hours left to back the funded Kickstarter as of this post (just FYI for anyone who still wants in).

I guess we need to make haste then. Check on Dr. Finch to see if he's in trouble. Otherwise get to the car ASAP with all our sweet loot (canister (occupied), blooded eye, federal badge, Jury (parts), tin/aluminum-foil hats, fire extinguisher (empty), I THINK that's everything).

Portal In Time
Get The Brutes to grab Eddie's capsule and make like a tree and GET OUTTA HERE

If it's reasonable to assume there's a tracking device on the phone, leave it. We don't need to expose to them where our base of operations is :P

Types of 'They' that could be coming: cops, Shirai et al, Thale making a move, the lower tiers in riot, demo crew, southern pass, other aliens, and all of the above. Boot it out of there, with canister if possible, if anyone in the way do a barrel roll and flatten them.
