"Extremists" implies an extreme ideology... which begs the question, "What ideology?" Did they have any connection to the para world at all, it was it a purely modern and entirely human group?

And, if the "hit" on the dig team was in fact what the extremists intended, then just why were they trying to stop the dig? What was there, that they didn't want the team to uncover? A cache of Lanthian nuclear-powered marital aids? :twisted:
It may not have been what was there, but what they thought was there . . . probably treasure, because in there world that's the only reason to spend that much effort.

I'm too lazy to archive-dive for it, but i seem to recall that i posted a theory way back when,that the whole thing was set up by Thup, A.K.A. Director Oduya, as part of it's whole revenge-against-the-Lanthians Plot she had going... ya' know... kill everyone she's ever known, all her friends at the dig, give her the "gift" of PTSD, etc, and watch her devolve slowly into madness before watching Kath finally tear her skin off in the Mapimi Vault( where ATSALI got zapped, instead of Katherine)... THAT was the error in Thup's Plan... she didn't allow for anyone ELSE to be in the Vault as well as Katherine... i mean think about it, would Katherine alone have been coherent enough to get herself out of there if she was experiencing what Atsali was during the same time frame?

I'd judge that well into the crazy-prepared/hypercomplicated plots.

Well... what if the real purpose of fixing the Calendar Machine was to allow Brandi a way of keeping Katherine out of that vault?

and Thup was indeed a crazy, well-prepared plottER... She "KNEW" that Katherine was NOT going to make the meeting with herself and the Agents later even BEFORE she was seen waiting for Lily and the other Agent to show up... she even TOLD them this... that is, until Bud showed up and threw a monkey wrench in the works... she even mentioned the whole "i can plan to have a woman rip her own skin off" WAAAAYYYY long time ago, both in comic-time and in real time... I'd say that was evidence of a "crazy-prepared/hypercomplicated plots" wouldn't you?

That's my point, actually.

What if, in each of the other 56 go-rounds, the Calendar Machine reset just before Katherine ended up in that vault by herself?

The calendar machine would complicate plotting beyond all reason.

Which, of course, means that Brandi was the one who sabotaged the machine in the first place... :shock:
