Our interpretation of the hero’s inner journey was that there was not a dramatic change in Spooner’s inner journey, but, he did go through some minor changes that has made him become a better person.

For instance, he had believed that Sonny was the bad guy the whole time, when instead it had been V.I.K.I who had been causing all the troubles. Overall, throughout ‘I, Robot’ Spooner does not go through huge differences that affects him greatly. However, Sonny does go through various emotional phases that eventually determine his future
