One thing that stands out to me is this whole eye-for-an-eye retribution requirement within the Families. Scratch scarred her cousin and was scarred in return for her actions against a member of the Families. Scratch states that had she killed her cousin, she would have also been killed. Pegs shoots Latch and so Scratch needs to kill Pegs in retaliation.
Now, Scratch retrieved Angel from the remains of the Tower and got him medical attention. Then, during her interrogation, she shoots him when he doesn't give her the information she wants.
So where is the retaliation for killing Angel, a member of the Families?
- I know he got out of that lifestyle, and joined the military, but it doesn't seem like the Family is something you can simply walk away from; once you're in, you're in for life.
- The doctor did say he basically died from his injuries during the tower collapse, and his body just hadn't caught up. But the shooting did not seem like a mercy kill. It seemed like an emotional response from Scratch when she did not get the information that she wanted.
- Could Angel have been killed for his involvment in the attack on the tower that led to Latch getting shot? But Scratch seems to blame that on Pegs and Pegs alone.
- Is it that the Mallers are so short handed that Durai cannot afford to lose his number 2? But how much of Durai's confidence in Scratch been shaken? She's insubordinate, disobeys orders, and does her own thing. Can he really trust her to be his number 2?
