I'm not sure how much of what I've said so far comes from the actual comic as currently posted, and how much comes from reading the comments at DeviantArt and such. It'll be GREAT when the whole story is on the pages rather than "All There In The Manual."
As to the guards that Red killed , I want to remind everyone that they were somehow revived by Dr. Crooked. His wizardy apparently allows for one HELL of a health plan. (I wonder how good the dental is?)
And there's no chance that the investors have any idea that Red is in the Asylum, or that she even exists. Because allowing the investors any sort of knowledge to that extent is a threat to the Asylum's money. Humpty will show them everything but the Doctor's secret projects.
The violent inmates he was about to show them? Not all of them are going to have problems that the Doctor will be experimenting on. Probably, many of them have relative run-of-the-mill issues.
On that note, why would the Doctor be interested in Goldi?
He's interested in Red because she's connected to the Big Bad Wolf problem. He would not be interested in Goldi's problem unless he could learn something from studying her.
Not all inmates at the Asylum are going to have problems that interest the Doctor. Pinnocchio is allowed to wander free, so apparently there's nothing interesting in a living, wooden puppet
. So perhaps being haunted by the ghosts of three bears is also nothing very interesting.
It's a different world, with different norms and different mysteries.
