Correct on all counts.
Not only that, but we agree on what the "view" was, but this pseudo-bonus does not bring an extra 1/2 point.

Anyway, you have the "baton", as Karen says.

“But to refuse the xxx is to refuse the yyy, and something worse, more irrevocable, than misfortune. Do you understand what I’m saying?”

“No,” said Aaaaa.

“Yes,” said Bbbbb.

"There were two principal possibilities on the table.... First, was that you were an adventuress who had somehow succeeded in entrapping XXX, and he should be rescued from you as expeditiously as possible. Maybe. After I’d found out how you did it, for future reference."


Who says this?
To whom?
Who is XXX?
What tale?

Extending the quote somewhat
"There were two principal possibilities on the table.... First, was that you were an adventuress who had somehow succeeded in entrapping XXX, and he should be rescued from you as expeditiously as possible. Maybe. After I’d found out how you did it, for future reference.... The second main hypothesis was that you were exactly as you appeared to be, the unwitting victim of one of XXX’s less-well-thought-out inspirations, and needed to be rescued from him. My YYY consultants were both united in setting that as a high probability."


Who says this?
To whom?
Who is XXX?
What is YYY?
What tale?
