I’m a little perplexed about the change that’s come over Honeymoon. I’ve read others discuss it, and now I’m seeing it, too. We’ve witnessed a number of scenes of Honey in her room with the big “Mom” picture, we recall the certainty she expressed in the Space Coupe that her mother was alive and how she was going to prove it, and we saw how she organized her friends and sent them out to track Moon Maid’s appearances, presumably to prove her hypothesis. Now she seems to have distanced herself from all that. Treating Mysta with skepticism, using their meeting to cooly gather evidence, the detached reference to “this Moon Maid” — it’s baffling. She said to Mysta, “I still don’t think you’re my real mother, you know.” Actually, I didn’t know that. When was it ever signaled to us that Honeymoon is convinced Moon Maid is not her mother? I know as a Tracy she has to be a good detective, but all of her instincts were pointing one way before, and now suddenly they’re pointing the other way?
