My two cents on the expressions: Master Payne looks more like he's
wondering about Agatha in a "Hmm . . . I wonder . . ." way than in
an "Is she crazy?" way. One wonders how much he's begun to suspect;
he's not in charge of one of the largest collection of sparks we've
seen for nothing.
Also, Agatha's on the run from the Wulfenbachs (and everyone knows
it), and they may have helped (or may still be helping) one or more
wanted-by-Wulfenbach persons in the past. It might not violate the
Lex Wulfenbachia, but Klaus probably doesn't like sparks keeping
secrets from him; the circus really DOESN'T want to be noticed.
(Remember too that the intro text in the first collection states
that the Battle Circus will get into a fight with the Wulfenbach
army at some point.)
But if they clear the entire town, the point made earlier about
Wulfenbach suspecting a group of sparks in hiding will be much more
certain, particularly if remaining townspeople see them do it.
(This may be behind some of the shock as well: "Reveal ourselves?
Are you mad?")
