In which the Commander of Agents makes a move.
Perfection, huh? That sounds familiar.
I’m pretty confident that Aberthaz Ferry is just playing along in order to cut the Commander out of the crowd, and hasn’t actually gone back over to following the Plan. This is presumably the “prior and personal arrangement” which she mentioned to Bechimo.
I’m … let’s say hopeful… that the Healers haven’t actually been shot. I note that the consequence of the Commander getting suspicious of them is that she’s leaving the Headquarters, which is what the Healers said they were going to persuade her to do, so this might be all part of the plan.
