 Several incidents in "A Question of Power" justify or contribute to the title. First, consider the nature of Sello (at least for Elizabeth). He isn't really human, but instead, has lived in many times and places. Second, when Elizabeth explodes at a clerk, yelling and not really in control, there is a direct instance of a question of power; Elizabeth must document her sanity in response to outside questions. Third, when Elizabeth tries to decide if she should kill herself, that's a question of power; should she seize power over her life in the only way she has left?
