For their whole lives they’ve been treated as freaks. Treated as animals. Caged up. Well now they’re free and ready to fight for their freedom. They will not go back to cages and scientists. They won’t allow that. Someone may have gotten them out but it’s time for them to keep them out.
Max might not know what will come to stop her flock but she is willing to kill to save them. She is the one that will keep out her flock even if it means she has to die doing it.
They are her family and she never turns her back on her family.
Unless she's dead.
