The driving plot is that someone significant must be assassinated for the good of the people -- and at this point in the book, it looks like Trent is the ONLY person who is capable of doing so... and then he is uncovered and killed before he can act. I needed the situation to feel hopeless for a while as the situation slides further into darkness... it has to reach the depths of despair before the main protags can claw their way back and see victory.
