It turns out the other mice has been experimented on as well, and Mad Rat has to face off against them in a cruel twist of fate. As a reminder, Mad Rat’s goal get revenge on humans due to the cruel experiments performed on it, and seeing what happened to the other mice could steel his conviction even further.
