Hannah: I've really loved the contrast of how Claire and Atticus handle different kinds of conflict, in this chapter especially. Claire's having a mental breakdown as she's bombarded with all of this information that changes everything about her past, but when somebody shows up that she needs to fight off, she leaps into action. Atticus, on the other hand, is sweating like mad as the EITF try to break their way in, but he's analyzing and picking apart the information they've found with his steady logic.

Kailey: It definitely highlights their strengths. Claire is not good with more mental conflict, as shown in earlier pages with her flashbacks. She shuts down when things are confusing. She's a woman of spontaneous action, and in a situation like this, it's not a strength. It's good she has Atticus for support.

Hannah: They make a good team. That said, I'm sure Atticus wouldn't be doing as great with his logical analysis if he discovered he was homunculus.

Kailey: Everyone's a homunculus! Just kidding. Nah, he wouldn't do so great, and neither would Claire in that situation. This alchemy stuff goes right over her head. She's going to have to figure it out quick though, since she is alchemy.
