Dorothea is bugged-out with her run

I haven't done the Linkletter quest in forever, though I have done it more times over the years than I care to remember. Yesterday I was leveling-up a new character and did this quest and Dorothea's movement when you escort her through the sewer is all bugged-out. Well she used to walk (quite fast, but it was a walk) but in the rework they've changed it to a run, no idea why, it was perfect the way it was before. Anyway, it is what it is, someone decided she should run and everyone should be rushing through this quest in less time, but that's not what this post is about, this is about what changing her to a run has done to her movement because whatever they did is not working.

As I went along with her, she tried to run and did a few steps of a run here and there, but then she goes all buggy and jerks along with her leg in the walk-pose (more straight) and jerks horribly along for a moment, her movement speed is kind of consistent but the animation is a dog's breakfast, then the run kicks-in again and she runs a few steps, then it happens again and she starts to jerk badly along the ground with her body staying more or less still and with her legs kind of straight as she jerks along. It looks cheap and nasty. No idea why this perfect experience was changed like this for seemingly no reason other than to hurry it up and get it over and done with which is ripping-off the new players enjoyment and immersion, but it looks terrible the way she moves now anyway, so either please fix her run so she runs smoothly or if you can't work out how to do this, revert her back to the walk she apparently still wants to try to do.

    Poor Linkletter family. Haven't they been through enough?

    She was in RUI or WUI. Run/Walk under influence. Is this the quest you keep for feeding her medicine? Is it the one she becomes She-Hulk?

    She definitely looked dreadful and not put together. Yup that's the quest. I'm not even sure she turns into a monster when scared in the sewer anymore, but I killed them all so fast it may just have been there wasn't long enough to trigger it. She was moving along so fast I just wanted to kill them before she got to them ad she was hard to keep up with, you used to have a little time to do it and there was also a balance between leaving her too far behind and letting her get too far ahead. All that's out the window now. I also think the part where she says leave my husband alone seems different like it's missing something and shorter as well, at least that was the impression I got when I came to it. She does it in a little cutscene while some people are surrounding her and hitting at her. I didn't remember it happening like that.
