That's basically how my Rule Z works. It's like rock paper scissors. Group A Defeats> Group B Defeats> Group C defeats> Group A.

I personally beleive there is a manipulator at the top of these three groups and that there are different accomplices in each episode (to make sense of why people die in so many inconsistent ways), but he doesn't have to exist if you don't want him to.

You have to admit it has a lot of foreshadowing though.
