    Okay, now that Alley’s here, as soon as Guz and Doowee arrive, I’ll bet this story will kick in high gear!

    I wonder if Alley is planning a jailbreak…?

    Our armed and motivated ordinary citizen hero (Oop) is more than a match for the policeman and the lawyer…

    I think June is onto it. Alley is actually gonna try to spring this psychopathic monster from jail.

    @Rod Gonzalez

    High gear being defined as from snail’s pace to turtle’s trot?

    I agree with you and June. I think Alley is going to spring him before Gus and the lawyer get there.

    My take on the fleeting story line…. is that Alley is worried about the Wizer and his “incantations”.

    Good Morning Benders and all. The pit guard looks bushed. I don’t know how many guards are assigned
    to guard the pits but if he is the only one and no energy
    drink s invented yet, Alley may have a clear shot, for
    whatever he has plans to do, by offering to relieve the
    guard to let him grab a quick nap.

    This is known as the Bender double-duh-dialogue-delay. They need (another) vacation, so they draaaaag the storyline over a week or two with Dumb and Dumber conversation.
    .
    Usually the story is left to percolate unattended. The storyline soars like a buzzard in a lazy circle with a speed of about 1-minute’s conversation per week. This time they are using alternating Dumb and Dumber dialogues: #1, Gus and Doowee, alternating with #2, Alley and the Guard. You might even see some recycled panels, but the artwork usually regresses to a leafy background to torment a certain reader.
    .
    Come back in about another week to 10 days and they might be just arriving at the pit for another slooooooo discussion.

    I’m guessing Oop wants to open negotiations. He’s too smart to just spring an angry (and already proved unable to control his temper) power that be.
    .
    Oop: My help getting you out for your good behavior. Wiz [still angry]: nope I’m gonna blow up the palace!
