Yeah, as I was following Nela the thought flashed into my head, but I thought I was being far too extreme/silly. I think I'd seen somewhere on the internet a screenshot or something titled 'Nela's choice', which got me thinking. And then I got closer and closer to the EYE roadblock thing and she pulled out her bomb and I was all 'NOOOOOOO NELA please I didn't think this would ACTUALLY happen...'
If you chose the Baruti-data path, then those two events one after the other are enough to send anyone into shock.
I didn't make Baruti die. Just, you know...lose his job and hate me forever. Still emotionally draining. At least he didn't die, though.
...I don't know why, but something about the way Sully's words echoed back to Nela's from the beginning...the SECOND she called, I knew she was going to do something stupid. I hoped maybe there'd be a way to try and talk her out of it, but... NOPE.
I don't know. Gross might still win. I actually wondered if the evidence was fabricated in order to ensure that he won. And with the clamp down from the Eye, do you really think the election is going to be fair? If the marxists actually won, either the vote would be tampered with to prevent them taking office or there'd simply be a coup.
I don't know what options you chose, but in mine, Sully made it clear that the Marxists were the only ones not involved in this scheme some how or other. The focus was just on Unity and Wolf because they were leading the polls. So I can't see support surging for him.
But more importantly, even if they hadn't won Nela seeing that story break in the papers might have been enough to put her on a different path. The numbers may have been tampered, with, yes, but that's not the point.
