He is raising a boy that doesn’t exist under the law and probably can’t fully pass for human yet (let’s remember he’s still developing “Buddy’s” limbs and body parts), and the fact this boy is not human is probably unknown to everyone yet. He didn’t reveal this even to Lucille AFAIK.

It would be very interesting to see how Buddy/Sulla’s existence is finally revealed to the world (or was it what happened last time we saw her?), but I imagine that Brendan is also growing his company producing advanced robots that would change people’s perception (and laws) related ro synthetic intelligence in the meantime.

I always thought Sulla was ashamed to be revealed as a robot in front of her friends that thought she was human because of the mere desire to fit, but that the existence of synthetic humans was already known in the open world, including their legal implications (given robots are referred as having rights in the the future). I’m rethinking it now.

Potential spoiler –

I suspect Al did it himself or somehow Lucille was involved. It felt like the scene with Brendan seeing the simulation of Al’s face (with Lucille behaving like she had no idea it was there) was foreshadowing. If Lucille truly wasn’t responsible for that simulation, the individual who responsible for Al’s AI rebirth probably was.

Not sure, but there may have been a low budget (crappy) movie version of that years ago…

(For various reasons, I don’t read Questionable Content anymore, but it reminds me of how Jeph Jacques refused to say one way or the other whether Claire had had bottom surgery. Nice to see authors being awesome about trans issues even around fictional trans people. Especially since characters can’t consent.)

I love how he lets her lead her own projects/education, but also sets boundaries and still teaches her at the same time while learning with her. It’s a big part of why I love homeschooling my child and why we homeschool to begin with. She’s several grades ahead for her age in math and reading, but still very much a little girl.
