    Unbeknownst to Rose, Tao and Tootles have summoned the Greys, and Imperial warships are closing in on the Leviathan and K-mart.
    Rose has now advanced all her moves. She needs all the power she can get her hands on, as her last remaining question is about to be answered: can Rose save herself, and who will she have to sacifice to do it?
    Session 10 (2/19)
    Rose, being a more of a big idea person than a detail-oriented type, has been oblivious to the fact that Tai's ransacking of the K-Mart has led to it being unable to fly. Her unhappy followers confront her with this fact, so she sends Rube and miscellaneous thugs to drag Tai back so he can fix things/ Afterwards she gets into it with her daughter, and through the psychic Maelstrom, Jax. Confronted with her own failings as a parent, and realizing that this family psychodrama will never end if she keeps associating with Gams, she sends the young woman off to find her own way. (Which leads Gams right back to the Leviathan, but, hey, not Rose's problem).
    Before leaving, Gams lets Rose know that the Greys are comning. When Rose learns that her Tai-retrieval crew has been slaughtered by Goldie and Bowdy (with an assist from Gams), she decides that discretion is the better part of valor. She orders her followers to scatter so that the revolution can live on, decamping herself with her ersatz family (8track, Tootles, Lennox and Ula) in tow.
    In flashforwards, Tai envisions Rose setting up another establishment, this time on the ground, where she works surreptitiously to overthrow the Empire. Ula gives birth to Carna, Jr., the ugliest baby this side of the apocalypse.

    ...
    Jax believes he can help Carna, so Rose takes him to meet Tai. Tai is not excited about this, which surprises Rose. She's also surprised that Tai knows as much as she does about Rose's feelings about Jax. Creepy proto-brainer.
    Rose has been talking with her people about what they should do next, and the consensus has been that they need to do something Big to get the word out about the revolution. Rose has a plan: cripple the brainer-creation project, preferably in a loud and messy way.
    Session 9 (2/13)
    Rose learns that Jax has been killed by Tai, and throws a temper tantrum. On the one hand, she gets to cross a chore off her list. On the other, she wasn't quite ready for that chore to be completed. Fearing this will cause everything to blow up in her face, she decides it's time for the revolutionaries to leave on the K-Mart. But with Jax dead, she's down to two brainers. Time to recruit!
    She goes to see the Leviathan brainers, but Bowdy's in her way. She doesn't have time to work him, and isn't really that fond of him, so she stabs him in the face. Gams has gone 'round the bend in the face of her father's death and Rolfball and Goldie's relationship, but Rose convinces her to come away. She makes the offer to Tao and Bowdy, but unsurprisingly they're not enthusiastic about throwing in with the stabby Hocus.
    People are rapidly moving from one ship to another as their allegiances dictate. Rose meets Goldie between the two ships, and she asks the Chopper to join up. Goldie wants no part of it, having her own plans. The two part amicably.
    Unbeknownst to Rose, Tao and Tootles have summoned the Greys, and Imperial warships are closing in on the Leviathan and K-mart.
    Rose has now advanced all her moves. She needs all the power she can get her hands on, as her last remaining question is about to be answered: can Rose save herself, and who will she have to sacifice to do it?

    Rose can now take ungiven future options, so advances seduce/manipulate, go aggro and seize by force. Eros and thanatos, baby.

    ...
    (Rose is now a Hocus.)
    Of much greater importance to Rose is everything that's happening elsewhere, in Goldie's scenes: the Chopper has taken over another airship. One of its passengers is the missing Ula, and another is Rose's abusive ex-lover (and Gams' father), Jax. Family reunion! GET OUT WHILE YOU STILL CAN!
    Session 8 (1/30)
    Rose's Place has become one long anarchist argument, as her co-revolutionaries try to figure out how exactly one revolts. Goldie returns with her new airship, the K-Mart. Rose is as excited as anybody to find out what happened, and heads up top with the rest of the crowd, but starts getting weird pains in her crippled hands. She opens her brain, has a strange hallucinatory conversation with Jax, and then finds out that he's on the ship. Awkward! 8track is with her. Super awkward! She starts to manipulate the situation in hopes that 8track will attack Jax, but then realizes she can't go through with it. She stops 8track, and the two of them realizes that what they have is a Real Thing. (Rose made a manipulation super-ultra-hiit, established 8track as an ally. No more crosshairs!)
    Ula's alive! Rose is ecstatic.
    Rose tours the new ship some, pondering its possibilities as a vessel of war. She's happy to note that things seem to be heating up between Goldie and Rolfball. Eventually she has a tete-a-tete with Jax, and learns they have more in common than she realized (Empire hating, poor parenting). She'd still like to gut him like a pig, though.
    Jax believes he can help Carna, so Rose takes him to meet Tai. Tai is not excited about this, which surprises Rose. She's also surprised that Tai knows as much as she does about Rose's feelings about Jax. Creepy proto-brainer.
    Rose has been talking with her people about what they should do next, and the consensus has been that they need to do something Big to get the word out about the revolution. Rose has a plan: cripple the brainer-creation project, preferably in a loud and messy way.

    Session 7 (1/23)
    Rose wanders around the ship talking to people: Tootles and Lennox, Tai, Pamming, and even in a weird way catatonic Carna. Most of it is laid-back and peaceful, except for yet another heated conversation involving 8track, Rolfball and Foster. It's during this conversation that Rose realizes her life as a Maestro'D is over, and that now her purpose is to guide the revolutionary fervor of her allies into constructively destructive channels. (Rose is now a Hocus.)

    Looks like Shelley Winters as she aged towards her Big, Bad Mama roles: curvy body, round face, frank eyes, scarred hands that are always covered by gloves. When Rose's Place is open to the public, she dresses in big, ornate dresses that harken back to an era of saloon girls and madames. Feathers and fans, cigarette holders and flashy jewelry. A big kitchen knife tucked into the sash at her waist.
