    re: readers hate Holly; “ship” Wally with Kirbee // I don’t think that we “hate” Holly as much as it appears that she has ceased to be a contributor to the storyline. // Someone else noted that “characters” are not “puppets,” something to the effect that there are limits as to what you can have them do. // A similar analogy may be found in Dick Tracy, where the new creative team brought on a new villain, Stilletta Jones, aka Mrs. Flattop. This new character brought with her a lot of promise, bridging back to one of Tracy’s most popular villains, the original Flattop. However, in short time, Mrs. Flattop became a one dimensional character, totally focused on killing Dick Tracy. // Being a villain, the creative team had no qualms about doing her in at the hands of a couple of petty crooks (the Nitrates, for those following Dick Tracy). // I personally was looking forward to Wally moving on; to me, Holly had long ceased being a contributor to their cause. // But I have to admit that, in what appears to be her being written out of the story, the manner in which it was done is heart wrenching.

    Remembering Lyn, pre-mutant times, and even questioning whether there is such a thing as a “mutagenic virus.” And backing it up with people who have visited the planet and not mutated. // And then, there’s Aaron. Marx, that is. // I hope this is the signal that the entire saga is about to go into an entirely different direction. // Hopefully, one that offers a tad bit more hope than the story lines of the last number of years.

    Last, and certainly least: The disappearance of the ship is the most disturbing thing in this current storyline. The ship lured them in, told an elaborate tale, amazingly accurate for a fabrication, even threw a couple more red herrings at us, before we were to believe that the entire experience was a hoax?

    (Not that I was trying to make fun of Jenner of Baslim or anything. I just think that, like Sarah, we may have run out of story lines for the mouse)

    “As for Wally & Kirbee … Remember Jim & Sarah? Seemed to be some physical problems there” // Physical problems, yes, but methinks that Sarah’s head was a mess was the biggest problem. // Which brings us back to Holly. And her head.

    “Please tell me… PLEASE tell me we haven’t seen the last of Holly?” // She may have been a beloved character at one time. But no more. // Perhaps she can come back as another “Jim thing”!

    Tribute to Charles Schulz or Peanuts?

    Though, oddly enough, Holly’s breakdown is a reason for them to stay together. For better or worse, the wedding vow says. // The only way to write her out of the story would have been for this ordeal to have been the death of her. // Now that she’s been returned to us alive, I don’t know how Aaron could get rid of her now.

    For what it’s worth, I was ready for Holly to be written out of the story at this point. I was ready for Wally to move on. And in Kirbee, the unlikely, yet superhuman hero of the Unity story, I thought this would be a great new start for Wally. // After an appropriate period of mourning for Holly, Kirbee and Wally could move on to new adventures. And I totally respect the talents that Kirbee brings on board. Wally may be the engineer, the “brains” of this outfit, but Kirbee brings both brawn and – especially – heart. // All things considered, if given a choice, I’d rather follow the adventures of Wally and Kirbee than the adventures of Wally and Holly. // For what it’s worth.

    If I were author of Endtown, and I was planning to end the Endtown saga, this would be the episode that I would write. // I really can’t think of anywhere for the characters to go from here. // A couple of you have suggested taking the plural marriage route, with which I would agree. But I don’t think the vast majority of readers would want to go along with that. // Just ask 19th century Mormons. // Can these characters co-exist now that Holly has returned? Probably not. My impression of females over the years is that this arrangement is not sustainable. One of the females has to go. // Just as Hagar, Abraham’s other wife. (As long as we’re dragging the Bible into this) // (I agree with the other poster, that plural marriage wasn’t what caused problems in the Old Testament; other things led to the intense jealousies that resulted in the huge chasm that divides those native to the Holy Lands) // Since plural marriage has been more than illegal for more than a hundred years now, it is safe to say that no one has survived who could tell us what life was really like under the system. // And, no, I won’t go near those who insist in practicing the principle today; all are criminals by the law of the land – and, for those polygamists that call themselves “Mormons,” know that the LDS church has officially expelled all of these people)
