WarpFox said:I'm not a lawyer, but if she releases what evidence she has, and this thing later becomes litigious, then that "evidence" would probably be inadmissible, I think.No, should still be admissible. There would be a concern that the other side would have seen the evidence earlier than they would have otherwise and had more time to prepare a rebuttal of it.I'd like to see us as a society/culture move toward some sort of process or procedure for evaluating these kinds of accounts that reflects our values, not the current situation where someone can destroy someone else's life with an accusation. Because if it stays at that level, these accounts that aren't cut and dried will all end up in court. Should dating involve showing proof of lack of mental health issues along with lack of STDs? Does staying with someone after questionable actions imply consent WRT their actions? After all, there is a spectrum of activities and norms consenting adults engage in. And if you believe in equality then there is equal agency and perhaps responsibility. What does "no means no" mean if you don't say "no"? There have certainly been repulsive and horrifying accounts, but there have also been "I didn't say anything at the time, but now I'm unhappy with his and my actions back then, so he should lose everything" accounts that seem unreasonable.

The only thing I got is he has a daughter [...]Suffering helps hosts wake, and Lawrence has suffered plenty. As I mentioned above, he's already shown some access to memories from previous "lives." With Maeve's prompting in that moment he probably could access more of his memories. Maeve's prompting could have been a shot in the dark, assuming that the MIB has been awful to everyone given he came around killing in the "family" part of WW.Good call about the daughter.
Does anyone else cringe when someone on the show starts spouting computer gibberish? It usually sounds so off.WRT Angela and Sgt. Horndog, wouldn't it be interesting if some hosts were equipped with extra equipment to read human heart rate, emit potent pheromones or drugs, etc. or even be trained in hypnosis?
