This was one of my favorite scenes in the book because this is where the story of our three characters(Levi, Risa, and Connor) interconnect.
This scene shows major character development for Connor because he is showing restraint and thinking about his actions. He utilizes Risa as someone to help him calm down and as a voice of reason.
During this scene Connor is sent into one of the jets just as the general asked but what was inside horrified not only Connor but the reader. This left me thinking "Did Rowland do this" ,however, the truth is exposed when Levi joins a new clique at the graveyard.
