Long Answer

1. They observe him so they can resist his manipulations. Connor learns how to avoid being baited into an unnecessary fight. Risa accepts his food and blankets only because she knows he’ll go cold and hungry without them. They both stay out of his way as much as possible. Connor lets his actions and his integrity speak for themselves. (Various chapters)

2. His disappearance fulfills a joking prophecy Roland made just a few days before. Fear crescendos in the Graveyard and a mob forms. Secret deaths get uncovered and a riot starts. With Conner and Roland noticeably missing, it gets out of control. Roland loses power and forms a plan that lands himself, Connor, and Risa at a harvest camp. At the same time, Emby (Zachary) is one of the last pieces of the Humphrey (Harlan) Dunfee puzzle.
