Am I the only one not seeing a point to this nonsense redemption subplot?

Redemption necessitates going over why someone did what they did. Therefore, this subplot is a way of getting to the reasons why Yaeyoafa-who-became-Iafa chose to forcibly digitize his entire race

[Edit]You know, why this happened.[/edit]

I don't think they know why they did it though.

yeah they forgot. This "sub plot" is very clearly a way of leading into why Iafa did what he did, whcih is heavily implied to be connected to an imminent threat related to whole civilizations disappearing without any explanation.

Two someone's... but yes, Yaeyoefui is being a massive drama queen.

That's.. not great, Yaeyoefui. Not leaving a great impression of the people in your time.

Yes and no though.

I realize it's not a perfect analogy, but let's face it. He's basically been told he's Space-Hitler., Maybe more of a "Space-Thanos" (Kill things to save them), and has had maybe 30 seconds to reconcile "But I'm an upstanding citizen" with "I killed and digitized everyone I know and locked them away"

And yes, -we- know that in general there were very compelling reasons, nobody has explained any of them to anyone yet. And the fact that -nobody- seems to be leading with the "Why", instead of crushing Yaeyo with the "What" is not helping.
