1. That's a very good explanation.
2. Well, yeah, that, too.
3. Well, yeah, but it still doesn't make sense. How would keeping the girls from escaping allow him to brainwash them?
4. Well, yeah, but Sonic could still keep breaking free. And are you really sorry for calling me "genius"?
5. To be honest, I don't really think it's a good enough reason. Making Sonic desperate to escape at the last second as a last resort has got to be the weakest move ever on the writer's part.
6. Yeah, maybe.
I saw that journal entry a couple of years ago.
By the way, I've thought about adding a different piece of music to the part where Sally and Bunnie drag Sonic to the Roboticizer to make it more intense. Also, I'd want the most dramatic chord to be at the part where Sally says "Shut your mouth, hedgehog". What do you think?
