Feedback on № 10 Duel of the Fates from Taylor:

If you lock someone in a room without telling them, and they never find out, but decide to stay in the room, did they still have a free choice? Did they have free will when they chose to stay in the room, even though they couldn't have left?

Ben posits another scenario: what if the door is unlocked, but the person doesn't realize there even is a door?

Last episode in Rebel Underground Studios (Ben's house). After this episode they're moving the equipment to Matt's place.
