    Maybe she can persuade him to come with them.
    If I looked like she does, than it might be that she finds him attractive. He does look kinda sweet at the last.
    So we have 1 cat, 1 mouse, 1racoon, a young bird, and maybe 2 dragons, lizards, to resume the journey.

    I think Sarah may stage a coup.


    Thanks for all for the moral support. I’ll be okay.

    Sarah: "Why should I leave. The way I figure it, I could own this place by the end of the week. We’ll change the name to “Sarah’s Nest”, and you can be my chief concubine. This is going to be one sweet deal, you’re right."

    Was that sarcasm or not? Difficult to tell. Does Sarah believe she can crack that xenophobic façade or is she being sarcastic and actually intends to leave them to their fate?

    Sarah is smart enough to see this is an genetic dead-end. All the valid concerns we have recently voiced about the unfortunate course this colony has taken are painfully obvious to her.
    All that weirdness aside folks..
    Who is curious enough to see a Cat or a Giraffe hatch from an egg?
    The thought had crossed my mind about 2 weeks ago and I laughed out loud at the very idea.
    It almost seems ridiculous..’
    If it weren’t for the Platypus.

    @A_Dream4u

    Thoughts:
    .
    Personal at Veteran: Don’t know if you got my reply, but I wasn’t making a jab, just noting that the information you cited could go either way…
    .
    Back to the story: I would say we’re overdue in hearing from Wally, Holly, and Jim.
    .
    As for the lizards, are we supposed to be angry at them? Or should we just feel really, really sorry for them?
    .
    It’s finally been said, definitively, that mutant offspring are not immune to the mutagenic virus. We’ve been guessing that, but now, we finally know.
    .
    Is Sarah being sarcastic, or is she staying?
    .
    I would say that has a lot to do with whether she has feelings for Piotr or not. But, even if she does, I would rather see both Sarah and Piotr leaving, than the two of them staying.
    .
    By now, I think it’s clear, Piotr has feelings for Sarah.
    .
    But Piotr and Sarah both staying in Lizard Land would probably be the end of this arc – and perhaps the entire story.
    .
    Indeed, Sarah staying behind would certainly signal the growing perception that, no matter how bad it is here and now, it only gets worse as we move on.
    .
    But wait! I think I’ve said that before!

    I am with the group of folks saying Sarah is going to just take over the place and set it on a better path.

    if she did stay what about Jim???He mutated just for her….or love for her…we don’t know if that has changed along with their bodies. This is getting reeeally interesting…….

    @gcwh

    That may be a bit of a touchy problem to take over.
    So far she has on her side, one mouse, one cat, one raccoon, and one lizard.
    Now the mouse and cat may waver either way depending on how they feel but Chic may sway them.
    Now all Sarah has to do is convince an the rest of the colony the path their leader has set for them is a dead end.
    What can she offer them to turn them??
    Sarah could “lay the egg” so to say in telling them they are doomed and still leave with rest of the crew to find the place they were heading for to begin with. Leave and let them either work it out or die off slowly.
    What Sarah has shown to me is some Topsiders believe they cannot win. The virus is going to be there no matter how long they try to wait it out.
    Comes down to this…Adapt and Evolve or die. Simple evolution forced upon them by a virus.
    My question still burns….who created it….who let it escape??? AND why so many Rats in Endtown? (Just to raise a few questions) Oh by the way this arc does answer one of the on going questions. Mutants can have sex and produce off spring. That question should be “laid” to rest.

    Cheapskate,

    “…are we supposed to be angry at them? Or should we just feel really, really sorry for them?”

    Both, neither, either or. Aaron is very good at writing ambiguous characters, people who you can cheer for at one point, hate in another and feel sorry for in other places. In the “Gustine’s Quest” story arc, he had a character named “Sparkplug” who tried to kill the main characters. Later he used dittos to explain Sparkplug’s history and what made him so unhinged. Later in that story arc we were introduced to Endtown’s Security Captain Philomena Flask who wanted to execute Al and Gustine for treason. Those who have followed her through the end of the quest story arc and “Countdown” have often hoped she would do the right thing, cringed when she didn’t, have hated her and occasionally felt sorry for her. I think it is the same with the Lizards. You can either hate them, feel sorry for them, hope that they will make better decisions. Maybe all of the above.
