** He may have. Computer dogs may have longer lifespans than dogs in our world. Dot seems pretty sure Frisket could have done the whole thing again when Daemon was coming.

* In The Medusa Bug, we see that Bob's guardian code protects him from the bug's effect. Everyone else in Mainframe (other than Hex) was petrified into a stone-like state. My question is: If the guardians are capable of making their code immune to certain bugs, why don't they share that with everyone else? Even if the immunity is tied to the guardian code and they obviously weren't going to make everyone a guardian, surely they could have created a "guardian lite" code of sorts that gives people the immunities without granting them any of the other guardian attributes. Keeping that part to themselves strikes me as extremely selfish and akin to withholding vaccines and medications from the general public.

Who says they can separate the immunity from the rest of the Guardian code? How do you know they're not trying and just can't? Megabyte can't infect Sprites, does that make Dot selfish for not trying to upgrade all the Binomes into Sprites?

** A virus took control of his home system, plunging it into war. Megabyte had always craved control of Mainframe, and just took the opportunity presented to make his move. That's all the motivation Matrix really would have needed. This hatred was probably just amplified over the time he spent wandering the Net - we saw the system in 'Icons' had a virus there as well, Matrix has probably transferred this hatred to all viruses by this point, precisely because a virus caused untold death and destruction to the place he loved. This is not that complicated psychology.

** It wasn't Megabyte and Hex's fault that they launched Bob into the web and then attacked and destroyed Mainframe? It wasn't Megabyte's fault that he constantly mocked Enzo when he was the city's guardian, got Cyrus to start a smear campaign against him, and came really close to murdering him (Enzo) before getting trapped behind the firewall?

** They may not have had the capabilities to mount an evacuation - they'd near a tear to create a portal, if they even knew where to go. Likewise, Bob was the only one who could stabilize a tear into a portal, which have been shown to lead to various places, not just one location, and he was busy trying to prevent the shutdown of the system from within the core. By the time he was done, just about all of the system had shut down, had no power, and, presumably weren't generating tears, which left them with no way out of the system.

** Based on his appearance, which is the '01' version of Enzo from most of season 1, it'd presumably be from some point after the flashback in Daemon Rising but before 'Talent Night.' He knew who Bob was, but that's about as far as he can be narrowed down to.

** Well, Mouse hacked the icon in order to allow herself and AndrAIa to enter games with Enzo. It's possible that she also hacked Enzo and Frisket's icons to allow them the same switch. But, like AndrAIa's icon, the only way to test it was in the field - if it failed, they'd never really know, and if it succeeded, as it did, it'd take the three far from Mainframe. If Mouse told Dot about that possibility, likely too much time passed for any of the Mainframers to think that they'd survived.

** If Mike hadn't shattered Hex's looking glass, the Web creature would never have come to Mainframe in the first place. Megabyte and Hexadecimal wouldn't have had any opportunity to send Bob to the Web.

* Why did Matrix hate viruses in general and Megabyte in particular so much? Anything that happened in Season 3 was Bob's fault. If he hadn't left Mike at Hexadecimal's lair at the end of "Painted Windows", the web creature would never have come to Mainframe.
