Yup, that's the big secret behind Drake's "care" regarding Xenon's eye injury!

Doesn't exactly help mending their already strained relationship again...

Well, SOMEbody's gonna be getting a little social call from a pissed off lady with an unnecessary cyborg eye real soon!
If I were his employees, I'd start requesting some vacation time! They won't wanna be anywhere near him when it goes down!

Drake: "But we already are on vacation!"
Employee: "Look, I just want to be on vacation elsewhere."

I guess having cyborg eyes aren't too bad. I'll probably need them in the next couple years. XD

True, when we're talking purely about the sight aspect, Xenon is certainly better off with the cyborg eye than if she still had both natural eyes with one being only 3/4 as good as before.

However, we also learnt that the cyborg eye has some significant drawbacks concerning her quality of life.

Alexander uses stolen dossiers like poisoned stilettos.

Or poisoned umbrellas...

While that scene in Childhood's End was obviously my main inspiration, the general vibe I got from Gus in his various appearances within your oeuvre is that using all kinds of "should be confidential" level information as tool/leverage/weapon is kinda his thing...

Guess she technically didn't need that cyborg eye after all...

Exactly!!

Xenon got tricked into agreeing to this rather extreme surgery by false pretenses!
