Tobias starts pulling his weight in the narration of this novel.
Tobias doesn't like being at the war-torn former Erudite compound. You'd think someone could have swept up the broken glass by now. Does no one own a broom?
Wearing an armband with the factionless symbol (it's an empty circle), Tobias gains admittance to the cellblock where Tris is being held.
Tobias brings news of what's going on: Evelyn doesn't think anyone should leave the city "just to help a bunch of people who shoved [them] in" (2.14) there in the first place. Well, well: our interest is piqued.
Oh, also: there's going to be a trial, and Tris will probably be convicted as a traitor.
Internally, Tobias is torn. He kind of agrees with his mother, but at the same time, he wants to leave.
Tris and Tobias decide that Tris will be interrogated first. She can resist the truth serum and make up a lie that will save herself, Christina, and Cara.
Before Tobias leaves, they engage in a little PG-13 conjugal visit: a smooch between the bars.
