      The thing is though, that the Jaegers are the hereditary servants of
      the Heterodynes and only serve Klaus because there were no Heterodynes
      left. Once the Generals found out that there was one left, they
      became obligated to serve her. However, they also made some contract
      with Klaus, so they were obligated to follow that contract. Because
      Agatha didn't know who she was, they had both some time and some
      wiggle room to figure out what to do.

      As far as the nooses go, I have trouble believing that they couldn't
      have simply torn their way through that rope, so I suspect that they
      were only hanging up there because they agreed to (as part of a game
      of Hangman with Othar).
