There is someone (or someones) working behind the scenes. Aaron Marx may be in on it, as he’s told Jacob that he’s the leader Endtown needs for the greater good, but seems not too happy about it.
Does it seem ironic that a character named Marx talks about “the greater good”?
So we have: Eve, the giraffe-girl spy drinking in all this, planning to report back to whomever. And the Examiner going full tabloid.
Lupine cleansing, and it was really a ploy to bring the security rats back into Endtown proper to bolster Jacob’s consolidation of power.
The name Grout kept seeming familiar, and it just dawned on me that it was the name of Crock’s pit bull. (Crocks’s Fort comic.)
