In The Lost Files: Nine's Legacy (chapter 22), Nine is forced to watch Sandor being tortured in the West Virginia Mogadorian base. Why doesn't he use his telekinesis to stop this from happening? What's stopping him from mentally pushing the Mogadorian torturer away from Sandor, or turning the Mog's blade against him? There is only a force field between Nine and Sandor.
In United As One we learn that Legacies can be used through force fields - I can't find what chapter it's in, but Six creates a storm inside the Anubis's force field when she's outside of it.
Nine develops his telekinesis long before this chapter, so is this just an oversight by the authors? Or is the emotional stress of the situation too much for him to concentrate enough to use his Legacies?
When Nine does break through the force field, he tries to use his telekinesis immediately, implying that he didn't think he could before. There's no mention I can find of trying to use it beforehand, though.
Perhaps telekinesis is an exception that can't be used through force fields. I can only speculate, though.
Is there anything that can explain Nine not using his telekinesis to defend Sandor?
