what's the trick here?
I think maybe someone (best candidate, the decoy) has to make a double step move passing over the trapdoor and landing out of eyes sight, with the help of the stick and of disarm/arm token.

How?

The easiest way to think about rooms involving pushing like this is that each weapon can only be responsible for adding 1 square of movement towards any actor's "velocity" (although, as seen with large stacks of mimics/decoys in large push-chains, 1 weapon can contribute to several different actors' velocities).

So, in order for anybody to do a double step move, either somebody has to move and somebody has to push with their weapon in the same move, which as you've discovered is impossible...

(read as many hints as you need, there are several)

Yeah, I would definitely agree it's evil. It really isn't intuitive at all that (reiterating for other readers, this is a complete spoiler: )
