You assure Grizwald that you don't want to control him any more than he wants to be controlled. It's just a precaution. You also ask where Elegance is; you receive directions to Elegance. It's on the other side of the upper tiers, unfortunately.

You also ask Grizwald if he has any weapons, or if he knows anyone that does. Or a car, even.

"'Fraid yer talkin' to tha wrong cat there. I try to stay as far from armaments as I can. Bullets ain't good fer muh complexion."

Michelle hmms a little. "I think Dr. Finch has a car, no clue how excited he'd be to involve it in our shenanigans."

T'would be a good idea to ask for his permission to use his car then.

... wait did Jane's parents leave her a car? A house that posh should have a garage right?

I know she took two trains to work but I'm betting that was just plain cheaper than driving there every day around here.

Good point. I'd be willing to bet that a nursing job won't cover gas expenses.

sticking around her old whereabouts could be dangerous, though. keep in mind, people could recognize her. if she were to do that, she'd have to hide herself.

.... we were just at her house man. It's just that we forgot to check if there was a garage there for some reason.

Honestly, the risk you're talking about would only add a drop more danger to the bucket.

yes, and cops showed up. i suppose it's risky either way. it's hard to think of rational solutions when you know there can be unforeseen consequences.

Crooked cops, who have since been disposed of. And were likely mostly controlled by Queen.

Either way this is a fucking hindsight moment where we were in a posh house, found the dark secret in the basement, but forgot to check the garage.

well, it's safer then getting Finch involved (potentially permanently killing him off, not ideal) or going on a delightful old adventure down a dark alley. it's pretty amusing to think about, though, now. why wouldn't we check the garage? one of those moments that you hit you head on your keyboard, realizing the stupidirfhbgfekjnffnnfpu4949

either way, i think it's smart for all of us, Jane's "lifeline", to confer together about decisions. multiple viewpoints and logics.

for the sake of being a decent person, ask Dr. Finch for permission to use his car, i think.

if not...it looks like you're doing it the hard way. by foot. that's only if necessary, though.
