Jason's attack on his patia does not crush his windpipe, as there is no windpipe to crush. Nor does it break his neck, as his neck seems to be made of some thick, flexible material rather than vertebrae. As if rather than a neck, a patia's head is more of a stalk that holds the brain and eyes. The patia's thoughts are red as he manages to slip a hand under Jason's chest and pushes Jason off him, jumping up and aiming his weapon at Jason.
Cecil successfully blocks Eli's progression to the disruptor with the dolly, though Eli is not affected by Cecil's thoughts of bombs. Eli reaches out a hand and squints his large eyes. The disruptor flies toward his hand. Maria's attempts to cripple him with pain are felt for a moment by him, and the disruptor dips in midair, but the effects do not last long and are shaken off by him. Eli acquires the disruptor.
The effects of Maria's first attack are still felt on patia 3, though they are beginning to dissipate.
Richard's firing on the patiae is mostly harmless due to not really knowing how to work the wand -- until with a burst of anger from him, a violet beam strikes Jason's patia in the chest. The patia's eyes widen. He then falls to the ground, dead.
Tom's mind bullet!!
at Eli is absorbed by the protective PMA shield over the Board Patrol patiae.
Gil still has a grip over the cunfuddled patiae, but it is slipping. They seem less wide eyed.
The Leader's thoughts are a deep black as he aims his attack at Gil. A PMA scratches across Gil's chest, wounding him. One of the cunfuddled patia shakes free of Gil's grasp. The Leader is revealed as the Physical Protector.
