Re: Let's talk about Katherine (the smart one).

1) It's hard to say. The answer that makes most sense to her character is C, but she's knowledgeable in too many fields for that to really make sense -- why does she understand electronics AND software so well?

Let's talk about Katherine (the smart one).
