If she has good as killed her boy if she offs Theseus why is she even bothering trying to ttweak Alec's ethical development since his not turning out like he did would have as much effect on her future?
I would have liked to have seen her kill Theseus and the results just because NO ONE ever kills baby Hitler when actually faced with it.
The lobotomized drones were assembling the same chips that that were inserted in them. Presumably everyone will have one that does different stuff. The soldiers they made must have their own version. What's it going to end up as, a handful of free people who are all in the same club and everyone else is a drone?
I don't think Theseus knew if those people could be saved. I think he just wanted to stop the machine and killing them all was the obvious choice.
