Yup, basically right. It was supposed to be a 22-minute script with Feral
*actually* switching sides and only reverting to Mr. Law 'n' Order when
it became evident that Turmoil's plans were doomed, and claiming that
he was just stringing her along the whole time. The writer intended it to be
a statement that Feral could be a bad Kat under the right set of circumstances, and
that a combination of "underappreciation" in MCPD and the opportunity presented
by Turmoil provided those circumstances.

The writer was told "the show is about the Kat Guys; don't overdevelop the
supporting cast" and the role was swapped from Feral to T-Bone, and the episode
shrunk to a short. It took a lot of convincing to get Falk to write another script.

 the winter of 1925. Endurance, Fidelity, Intelligence." -- "Balto"
