    I reckon the mortar was a lure.
    Maybe the attacker didn't know that anyone was in the Freakcave at the time - just that it was important to them and that they'd send a few folks out of their safe, secure fortress to find out who did it.
    I'm betting on Kaitlyn, who we haven't had much chance to get attached to yet...

    <em>I just can't picture Mark wearing a tinfoil hat. I just can't. He's big bad all powerful one. It would be very humbling for him to wrap tinfoil around his noggin.</em>

    Well to be fair, we don't know anything about Mark really, and the things we do know about him, have been told to us by the Freakangles, who have a pretty shady past themselves. Besides that, I'm sure as bad and as powerful Mark is, he probably knows he can't take on all of the Freakangels by himself, so it makes sense that he might seek to hide his presence. If he's wearing tinfoil, he's not being humble, he's being smart.

    I'm more than a little skeptical of the idea that the tinfoil hat is anything more than an affectation by Karl. It's seems highly unlikely that aluminum foil wrapped around one's noggin actually does block thoughts. It's more likely that Karl is simply shielding himself like Kait does.

    But there's the rub! He DID try to take on all the Freak Angels by himself. And they kicked his sorry ass, then a couple tried to off him while he was still down. And he still survived! He's gotten smarter, he'll find other ways.

    Here's a thought- can mortars be guided by Freak Power?

    I still doubt those ways will involve Mark putting Reynolds wrap on his head.

    Well, we've seen Conner telekinetically open the padlocked door to the Freakcave without even need to see it with his naked eyes. And this feat is presumably considered to be a fairly trivial exercise for the 'angels, on the level of us using a key unlock our own front door. I'd say it's not beyond the realm of possibility for a Freakangel to be able to guide in a morter. Now, whether he or she could do it from far enough away (or while shielded) to avoid being detected by other Freakangels is a lot more debatable. Remember that Sirkka was right on the verge of sensing Luke's mind control of his ex-girlfriend as noted by Arkady back in Episode 11. Although, since it seemed like it would have taken sustained activity for Sirkka to get a lock on Luke, I think it is possible for someone (Mark) to use short burst of Freakangel power without immediately being tracked by the others. Unless, perhaps they're already alret and looking for him.
