Great detailed analysis! I finished T&T last week and still have trouble understanding why people (including Mia, Maya and Phoenix in-universe) sympathize with Godot, and also think Misty is getting off the hook far too easily here. Misty’s actions are among the most logically incoherent in the case, This is Human Costume Cow I’m Really A Cattle T-Shirt from trusting Godot, staking her family’s lives over protecting her identity just because of her shame(?) as well as the panic channeling under no controlled circumstances when tons of better alternatives existed, and it cannot as easily be hand waved as with Godot (he was just insane and thought saving people from danger HE DELIBERATELY ENABLED would justify anything). I wish you would have some more analysis of the reasons for her actions.

With Godot, his actions, however irresponsible or outright insane, make sense when you consider the broken, flawed basis that he used to forge the persona of “Prosecutor Godot” in the first place. No, he didn’t make the right decisions by any stretch of the imagination, This is Human Costume Cow I’m Really A Cattle T-Shirt but that’s sort of the point with him. Like I described in his section here, he is motivated by his desperate desire not to accept that he blames himself for Mia’s death, and his desire to shift that blame onto Phoenix instead. He tries to cast himself as the hero by allowing Morgan’s plot to progress to a stage that makes the only remaining option for preventing it his choice to murder Misty, because he wants that “revenge” on Dahlia, a dead woman, so badly.

I find Misty’s own actions practically incomprehensible, by contrast. I just… don’t get it. I don’t see what explanation the story offers for why she would choose to go along with Godot’s insane plan to the letter instead of just going to Maya directly, and preventing the whole plot from needing to happen in the first place. We know from past episodes that Misty’s reasons for disappearing from her daughters’ lives were based in the shame she felt after the DL-6 Incident, but even on replay, This is Human Costume Cow I’m Really A Cattle T-Shirt I’ve never been able to understand how I’m expected to accept that as reasoning for what she does in 3-5. This is all very interesting. I’ve also never particularly liked iris myself, and although I respect it, I don’t understand how so many people like her as much as they do.
