Time for a Para ex machina?

Schlock appears to think he has a card or two to play, but I don't think he can be prepared for what Max has in mind for Tarfeather.

Am I the only one really, really hoping that Major Murtaugh survives this encounter and goes on to become a recurring character?

She sort of has to. Any explosion of that magnitude would definitely kill Schlock, and the one character we know absolutely must live on is Schlock. Therefore who must survive as a condition of Schlock surviving will also survive.

It looks like Tarfeather/Tarmeggeddon is interpreting Max's order to "answer to me and only to me" very literally. The lack of verbal response is what tipped Major Murtaugh off that something was wrong.

Max should have said "obey me and only me", and then ordered the robot to pretend everything was normal until it was time to go "BOOM!".

People who's reflexive solution to a problem is "blow something up and kill people" have a tendency to not think things out in detail before acting.

One reason why Tarfeather/Tarmageddon hasn't blown yet is that Max has not only not reach the safe distance, but he hasn't take over the ship and raise its shield. That means Max might have more subversion tools on him.

Proper tools...

Kevyn has them: http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2005-05-31
Kevyn is not present... but that's got nothing to do with saying that Max has or lacks other tools that may be properly applied here.
