W.C. Fields Forever (with apologies to Firesign Theatre and the Beatles)
I was going to begin with a correction to my post yesterday, in which I credited MoonlitKnight with having “called” a peaceful “hello and farewell” when, in fact, Night-Gaunt49 had called it first.
Until today, I figured that was exactly what we were going to get, and why not? There will be more than enough “tension” generated by our pair of docs and their “dog and pony” show (what Diet Smith called, “show and tell”). (The “dog and pony” show is why I entitled this post, W.C.Fields Forever)
Add to that, none of the characters involved knows that the moon is once again lifeless.
In fact, the “big crime” I was about to predict was the murder (perhaps only attempted) of Retik, Stellaluna, and Mysta as they were deposited on the surface of the moon! Again, why not? Once the pair of docs are finished with their scam, why not get rid of all three, the only ones who know what dirtbags the doctors have been!
Mysta foes may be rejoicing right now. Even if Sparkle is only “stunned,” which is the most likely situation, Mysta has just committed a crime! This alone makes it clear that Mysta is not rejoining the cast of characters in her former standing.
Mysta fans are likely puzzled, as I am this morning. Yes, I was using harmful intent on Sparkle as my “guage” as to whether this Mysta was genuine. Not a good morning for Mysta fans!
Many have asked whether there is a “plausible” explanation for the “real” Mysta to have survived Collins’ car bomb.
In the end, I think that explaining her survival is going to be easy compared to explaining why Mysta has done this. Like it or not, Mysta is now a villain! (And this is from someone who wants this Mysta to be real)
Most sinister thought (for now, anyway): Is this Mike and Joe’s way of “sending off” Moon Maid, once and for all – in a manner such that all of us may want her gone?
