An Error Charged to Team Temple

I passed 30,000 words this weekend. I'm at a critical point in the book. Team Temple has made a major miscalculation freeing the hand of the book's primary antagonist. As a result , two of the plot lines take sharp turns, a couple of despicable characters meet an inglorious end, and rather than putting a stop to the enemy's deadly scheme, their action has actually accelerated achievement of its operational posture, so to speak.
