Re: VOY S2: The Thaw

I think the reason that the Clown so easily accepted Janeway as the sole hostage (after earlier refusing to remain with only one because that one could get sick or die) is that Janeway is new to him.

Up to this point, he's known the minds of only the five aliens, but after a decade, he may have grown tired of them. Perhaps that's why he killed two of them—in part to punish them for trying to leave, but in another part in order to give the remaining three a fresh experience of fear. You can even see the Clown's reaction when he first starts sensing Janeway's mind, almost like a euphoric high from a drug.

If I'm right, though, I do wish the writers had made the reason clearer.
