Ichabod has every reason to believe he can think of something, seeing as how this is EXACTLY THE SAME THING HE PULLED TO PACIFY STILEZ AFTER THE WHOLE MEAT UNDERWEAR INCIDENT.

...okay, I was about to do some self-mockery for using the same plot device again, but Ichabod has inspired me to try and make up an in-universe explanation on the fly: Assuming that Stilez was created to be a super soldier, it could be that she's got some subliminal combat programing underneath all those layers of crazy. I mean, it'd explain how she can use all of the weapons without any training, right? Anyway, this "battle mode" obviously takes over when she's trying to protect Tax, and it just might include instructions to prioritize enemy commanders over the grunts. Thus, Ichabod could have figured out that he could could feed Stilez some line about "the REAL enemy" and distract her from whoever she'd previously been fixated on. Since we've seen that Stilez has roughly the memory of a goldfish, she'd eventually forget about her wild goose chase, AND he'd be able to keep using the same trick on her without worrying that she'd eventually catch on!

Meh, I guess it'll do until I think of something better.

Anyway, I'm pleased to announce that regular Voting Incentives are now back! And I even got around to coloring this one! YAY!

Yeah, his got the look of a small child stepping in between their parents and realising they need a mature and well thought out reason rather than "because I said so." And their only 4.

My Answer: If it wasn't for that guy's bosses, the ones who set up this weapon fair, there wouldn't have been weapons here in the first place for him to shoot at Stillez. If there weren't weapons here, they wouldn't have been shot at Stillez, and thus wouldn't have destroyed the roof. If they didn't destroy the roof, Tax wouldn't have been hit in the head with rubble, and thus all the blame for Tax being hit in the head with Rubble goes to the people who are responsible for guns being in a place where they can be aimed at Stillez.

...yeah, that's pretty much it.

Gosh, now I don't feel so bad about cramming all of Ichabod's explanation into one or two pages of Wall of Text and getting it over with right away.

It's the obvious "The Superiors who aren't here are to blame because they're the Superiors" defence. I'm honestly surprised that Ichabod hasn't used it before. He probably wasn't close enough to the "specific person Stillez blamed for hurting Tax and wants to kill" previously. Otherwise he would have to change it a bit, rewording it so that Stillez doesn't get suspicious of him blaming the person's superior's all the time.

It's probably what he was building up towards last time, until Trigger felt guilty and interrupted.
