SUBJECT: The Amaral Situation
The activation of the Lifeboat strikes me as a prudent measure, and I’m glad we’re not taking any chances on that front. However, having discussed the matter with Mr. Hatch, I’m increasingly worried about Dr. Amaral’s motives. We know that she was involved in the explosion at the treatment lab.
The thing is, she’s intelligent and resourceful, but that explosion wasn’t something a clever scientist whipped up all by her lonesome. The lab was blown up with military grade explosives sourced from our armory – an armory she doesn’t have access to – and they weren’t just thrown in at random. Somebody with a solid understanding of structural weaknesses and demolition expertise set them up. That’s military training. So we know she had competent help. That means she’s not working alone. Clearly, Dr. Amaral is connected to Joyce, or she wouldn’t have been “kidnapped” – that had to be her exit strategy; she had to know that we’d trace the lab explosion to her – but that’s not our only concern. We have to try to figure out who she was working with on our end.
I know her betrayal hurt you personally in more ways than one, and this may not be the easiest time to start looking into this. I hope you know that I’m at your disposal, whatever you need done. I want to get to the bottom of this.
