In my second playthrough, I didn't get the scene where Atris orders the Handmaiden to spy on me, but she showed up in the ship anyway. I thought it was a bug or that I missed something back on the academy on Telos because I kinda rushed through it this time around (not that there are many things to do there anyway). But then Kreya said she felt handmaiden was telling the truth about not being there to spy on us, and I don't remember this happening on my last playthrough.
Are there really two possibilities or did I just screw something up here? If there are then what could have triggered this change in her reason to join?
Does Kreya say she thinks Handmaiden is telling the truth in every playthrough and I just missed the scene where Atris sends her to spy on me because my save is corrupted or something or did I just trigger a new possible reason for her joining us somehow?
