Something that stood out to me was Bernard’s and Hemholtz’s meeting at the World Controller’s office. Bernard, being the indecisive person, sits nervous until later, while Hemholtz waits as if though he wants to hear the impending news. The man even chooses his place of exile (Falkland Islands). I feel like he chose this fate when he joined John in throwing out soma as well as dishing out some punches to the Deltas. He knew what he wanted, solitude. And in this society, the only way to leave is to stand out in a manner that threatens their way of life. Hemholtz always had something to say and now he has the opportunity to fulfill this desire , in exile.
