The federal agents come to my home after you talk to me and my sister. What a coincidence!
I didn't know that you went to that school! I was just using the Wifi to decrypt Evan's Files.
The Silence of Six?
It's too late for that, isn't it?
Well, I want to investigate. I want to get this over with and go back to my normal life.
So what? If the government is murdering American citizens, the world needs to know. Max may not be able to have a normal life after, but he'll be doing everyone a huge favor.
Max meets both "halves" of a hacker named DoubleThink: Penny and her sister Clarisse (Risse for short). Penny doesn't want to get involved with what Evan had started, but reluctantly comes to the conclusion that Evan wanted her and Max to work together.
One of Evan's encrypted files has the information of every member of Dramatis Personai, a large group of hackers like Anonymous. Six of them went missing or died, which leads Max and Penny to believe that they are the Silence of Six.
This scene is significant because I believe it represents how sometimes risks need to be taken for the greater good. Max throws his whole life away to figure out what Evan was doing and Penny does the same. Along the way, they learn about each other, what they meant to Evan, and why Evan wants them to solve the mystery of the Silence of Six.
