Saying Inner Joe is a killer is wrong, since Outer Joe is the murderer, he killed 2 humans, Inner Joe only killed a couple Plant Banelings (if there is an episode where Inner Joe murders anyone that I have missed, please tell me).
I chose for Bernie not to tell Jake, since Rosa being a vampire isn't really that relevant when talking Machine armies.
Besides, I want to see Jake's response to seeing her as a vampire without knowing.
They would just kill her anyway (a zompire is dangerous, even if it's dormant).
Inner Joe tried to kill people until stopped by a powerful vampire elder. Outer Joe's kills were unintentional. Also, now that Inner Joe
has told the machines were Hammerston is, and everyone expects the machines to kill lots of people (except for people who acknowledge that innocent civillians have a high survival rate in fiction).
Anyway, if Jake is really as trustworthy as we think he is, he is the military commander. He is responsible for the safety of the citizens of Hammerston. Also, if it weren't for the fact that Jess had a gun, Jess would have been killed, and who knows who else would have died? Rosa is another unstable variable, especially considering what the last zombie-vampire did, even when locked behind bars. At minimum Rosa will be jailed, and considering that vampirism leads to telepathic abilities which allows zombie-vampires to escape, Rosa might be shot. The first would reduce Joe's support of Hammerston, which would probably not end up in him killing everybody, but he won't be helping. The second one would most likely make Joe kill everyone.
Also, I trust Aurthor Joe. Does everyone else remember thinking Inner Joe overpowering Outer Joe was a good idea, and then Outer Joe almost killing people?
Also, leaders put their men and many lives over friendship.
Either way, this is slightly off topic. It's like saying "We have a disseration due tomorrow and a presentation due friday and I have cancer."
