Contrast this story with the previous one. Plot wise they are virtually identical. But narratively this is so much more sophisticated and emotional. Previously you would have been on the side of the Judges and now you have real empathy for the protestors. Maybe the two stories were deliberately juxtaposed to illustrate the “one man’s freedom fighter…” adage.

This tiny tale is the birth of a significant storyline that will appear in the future.
