I definitely think it would be possible for them to needlessly die for the group. Some already have due to medical neglect. As far as a potion goes though, I think Maria might see that as the easy way out. I would more likely see her holed up like the whacko waco guy and facing off with authorities causing the followers to die in an inferno or via painful death. (So as not to stir another hornets nest on topics, I do believe the government handled the situation in waco atrociously, but the waco whacko had his "family" holed up and viewing the attackers as AC. He should have opened the doors and had the followers all surrender outside before the attack ensued. All those followers could have been spared. When I think of cult leaders, I see them all like the bad ghost in Poltergeist..the cult leader guy that caused his followers to die.
