Thanks to Infinite's noble sacrifice that vicious Levin won't be the winner, how courageous!
I don't think this is going to turn out great for your minion, Infinite.
Serves 'em right. He offered to cooperate with them, they refused to hear of it, so why should he not pull off a win?
I mean, if they'd gone along with his Bindy related schemes, this is the worst that could have happened, so they've gained nothing by buying into the opposing team's 'provoke Lord Infinite' plan.
I think I'm missing something (possibly for not remembering this arc from long ago).
How did Infinite get that many points assigned to him? Where are they from?
You know what is the worst part of it? Infinite is perfectly correct.
First both teams conspired to keep Infinite from meeting his minion. Then once Red team severed Oranges from their one reliable informant on their team they screwed them over by blackmailing their weakest member. And then they acted so horribly smug about it they forgot that Orange team could stop making sure Infinite doesn't meet his minion simply out of anger and from being busy on how to fix it.
Oranges then made mistake when Infinite offered the most obvious solution, have his minion fix the count in their favour, to reject it. And even directly state that they don't trust Infinite to not do it in his own favour as well.
...And thus Infinite doing it anyway, but simply transferring all the extra funds just for himself he didn't broke any promise to them AND he still made them win that game.
All of this game's misfortune was just self-inflicted, really.
I don't like Infinite, but he's not exactly wrong: the rest of the team hasn't exactly treated him as if he was one of them, but more like if he was a crook that they were forced to tag along with, (which, to be fair, is kinda spot-on,) so why wouldn't he return the favour and play the part that they have designated him? It's a bit of a douche thing to do, sure, but did anyone seriously expect Infinite to NOT act like a douche?
On the other hand: "Nice job Infinite, way to justify everyone not trusting you up to this point." I think everyone has covered the other side well enough but no one (unless it is queued) has pointed out that Infinite just did the thing they were worried about him doing. No one is blameless here. Except maybe Three.
I think Infinite's power might be object duplication.
The guy is some sort of pirate, right? He's just working
Yeah, the rest of the team should have enlisted Infinite's help to take advantage of his minion. (I'm actually a bit surprised they didn't - I saw a conversation happening, but I didn't see that conversation come to a definite conclusion.) I'm not delighted that Infinite took all the winnings for himself, but it's fair play at this point.
Respect, Mister Inifite! But how did you do that? :O
A nice touch: Leaving his score just low enough that a member of the other team could hope to win alone by pulling a similar stunt. I suspect their united front will be unravelling quite swiftly.
Tobi really needs to learn to let go of things. All this spiteful snarling at anyone she's come into conflict with isn't helping matters. This nonsense with acting like Lord Infinite had already turned on them, an idea suggested by the opposing team of kill voters no less, has been entirely to her own detriment.
And she kept it up, even when she knew she was losing to team murder, even after what happened to three! Madness! Worst case, she'd lose the round to a man who wants her alive. Best case, her team would have won.
@someone: She should be safe as long as she stays off the checkered floors. Three's nemesis is a worry, but even there it seems no rules were broken.
@Tom: The exchange didn't happen onscreen, but he's already had one opportunity to talk to Bindy and may have been able to arrange another if she didn't have a hoard of oranges for him the first time. There could have been some other trick involved off course. Point is, Lord Infinite went scrumping off panel. Precise details are likely to follow at some point, possibly in the near future.
@Cluedrew: Does it really matter though? They can't treat him more like an enemy than they already were. And he was clearly expecting to end up in that voting booth at some point, so... what consequences are there to this front stab? Why not be hung for a sheep instead of a lamb? Tobi and the others gave up their only leverage of Lord Infinite: http://neorice.com/hoh_tobi_1524
@Agent_Cook: Lord Infinite's been described as a gang leader, I don't recall any mention of piracy specifically, but yeah, just another day at the office for ol' Infinite.
@Whispers of Sorrow: Depending on why he wanted to meet Tobi he might want to be on her good side. He still has to get through this entire game and now he might actually be hated more than Levin. And being a good person always matters. Yes a death game makes it easy to forget that, but it doesn't make it untrue.
