What you told me of Gus' depression---remembering what he endured during experimentation--I feel... responsible.

Mindmistress: You were counting on that guilt, weren't you--Maggie? To distract Dr. Archer and keep him from suspecting...murder.  And Theo?  Would he be injected with something--fatal?  Tsk.Mindmistress: You intially contacted the judge and told him of Mindmist--texted him Terry's location--older females are irresistible to young male chimps--you'd picked Gus'...succesor. Gus was...disposable.
