You know how the Walter ‘bots have an internal wifi communications loop? (not necessarily canon, but implied?)
It seemed like The Spine was the one most heavily affected by the Malfunction last night- Hatchy and Rabbs were mobile and active, but The Spine did nothing, caught in a spotlight, as though it was just something he was remembering. Which makes me wonder whether the error he incurred had him start projecting his “PTSD” over the wifi to his brothers…. and the stage equipment.
Something to think about.
