Garry is nuttier than a pecan log, but he blurts grains of truth on occasion in all that delusion. I think one of the most important things he says at any point is when he tells V that he had an accident and afterward could hear the 'thoughts' of powerful people through his brain implants. He somehow blamed his ripperdoc for this, and was too brain damaged and/or traumatized to do anything more with what he was hearing beyond spinning it all into paranoid conspiracies, but what he was picking up was real. The meeting he pointed V to is proof of that.By the way, does anybody understand Garry's monologues?
Does anybody know what are these about?
Who are techno-necromancers and what is alpha centauri?
The sequence of events associated with Garry the Prophet also creepily implies that V is being closely watched. Possibly from within her own Keroshi implants (Garry's rant about being spied on through optics may not have been as crazy as it sounded). Someone obviously has enough control over her optics to blind her at will. Garry was left to rant in an alleyway unmolested until he proved he knew about factual events. Then he was promptly disappeared. V may have tipped off the movers and shakers behind that meeting without even knowing it.
More questions lacking answers.

The comment about the mission for the Peralezes not being the end of that story even if this was the end of V's involvement with it.what do you mean? What was promised about it?
Anyone have a link to that on hand?

The last questions I want to ask is, why was NetWatch even interested in buying a relic containing Johnny's engram from Yorinobu? Was it to use him like VooDoo Boys wanted to, to lure Alt?
That was my immediate question as well during my first playthrough when V woke up with Johnny Silverhand in her head. Wait, what? WHY?!
According to Yorinobu message to the Netwatch agent (in the computer in the Konpeki), Netwatch didn't know that it was Johnny on the Relic (Yorinobu simply said "there is a gift on the chip").
Right, so plainly there was more than one plot to steal the chip underway at once with a variety of reasons for wanting it.
Someone wanted to smuggle Johnny Silverhand's engram out of Mikoshi. Why? A rockerboy terrorist long on ideals but of no further use to Arasaka beyond the immediate information that had already long ago been ripped from his memories. They'd have found out that he got the bomb material he used to blow up the towers from Militech. Oh, and he had an intimate relationship with the god-level netrunner, Alt Cunningham, who Arasaka had already engram copied and murdered. Ahh, there's the money shot.
So, it likely had something to do with Alt.
Yorinobu indicated he knew what was on the chip, but Netwatch (his ostensible buyer) didn't? Um, again, what? That makes no damn sense unless the Netwatch agent he intended to sell it to wasn't the actual buyer but an intermediary to the actual buyer. There's no way the reasoning behind any aspect of this was 'just because'. We don't know if Johnny was put on the chip at Yorinobu's instruction or if he simply knew it had been done but it was incidental to his own plans. Regardless, someone put Johnny on the chip deliberately and for specific reason.
Who was seeking contact with Alt Cunningham at all costs? Maman Brigitte. The VooDoo Boys don't seem to have any qualms about using anyone to accomplish their aims. It would not astonish me to discover that Brigitte had back-channel contracted to use a buyable Netwatch agent (possibly through another intermediary or two) to get her hands on that chip with Johnny safely stored on it. Evelyn Parker may have been a backup plan, a way of independently verifying that Yorinobu really had gotten the chip out of the lab. Perhaps to set up a Plan B klep if the original deal fell through or Yorinobu tried to renege on the agreement.
If you squint, I suppose a distant case can be made that Alt may have been behind the deal to spring Johnny from Mikoshi. She plainly still has some attachment to him if even the VDB knew that dangling him over the Blackwall was the likeliest bait to get Alt to show up (and that totally worked), but her motivations behind 'why' and 'why now' remain murky. She's no longer human, and assuming any human motivations would be risky at best.
The rabbit hole gets ever deeper and weirder.
V was a wrench in the works that no one saw coming, but it explains why Brigitte was so eager to speak with her.
