    It’s hard to figure what the dittos are. It seems that they can make decisions and are somewhat sentient. They respond to speech, and the “free-range” group encountered by Al and Gustine seemed to be working to misguide those two. Now I wonder if they were trying to keep Al & Gustine away from town, and if they were doing it because the dittos wanted to keep torturing Sparkplug. One thing I didn’t consider during Holly’s story was that the dittos were also possibly witnesses to the End, and they filled in details that Holly wouldn’t have seen. Have they been torturing Holly all this time? Are they playing with Wally’s mind, and this is just an illusion of Holly? This looks like an angry being saying “fine, I’ve had enough, too. Here’s your ruined Holly.” I’ve always thought the dittos were an interesting character, and were more than just a plot device to give backstory. But I’ve guessed wrong before.

    Or…this could be a sign that something worse is coming. The other times characters in the “illusion” directly acknowledged Wally, a key event happened right afterwards. Is this a warning to “LOOK NO FURTHER”?

    Some kind of intermission? Or does this mean that the elements most important to Holly’s suffering have been shown…and the “show” is over? Is Wally wrestling with “The Narrator”? Is this a ditto hive mind expressing itself?

    Up until they got to the abandoned ship and lost them; the dittos had clearly bonded(?) with Wally. They responded to his conscious directions, got snarky and played jokes on him, and apparently responded to subconscious need (the boxing ring doppleganger, and saving Holly back in Unity). When the dittos vanished I thought the derelict had grabbed them, and everything following was connected to Holly since she vanished first. But what if these visions were from Holly’s past, but being drawn out by Wally?
    yeah…and maybe I’m a jet pilot.

    “I would like to know if Chic and Kirbb are alright, and is this the end of this series, and onto the next.”

    It sort-of feels like it could be, doesn’t it. What could Wally encounter when he opens that door?
    But previous arcs haven’t ended so abruptly.
    It seems that Wally, Kirbee, Chic and Irving were experiencing some kind of “flashback” showing Holly’s recollection of her life just before The End of All Things. Yet the flashback is also interactive in a very small way. No matter how surprising events in this strip can be, a logical explanation for those events (in the context of the strip)is usually made clear over time (either by demonstration or by character narration). It’s one of the things I find so engaging about Endtown. (Except for Marx, but no comment there.) Aaron can go from a relatively placid state of affairs to a constant state of “holy cow, what’s going to happen next?”. The seemingly innocent presentation of a piece of chocolate cake comes to mind. Look what that led to.
    So, I rarely even try to guess what’s going to happen next, and just wait to see what the next strip will bring. It’s been a wonderful journey for all these years.
    So…I don’t think we’re done with Kirbee, Chic, and Irving yet (I hope Irving makes it). But I’ve guessed wrong before. :-)

    Oh…no. Badge showing high dosage. And the survivor (child?) doesn’t feel well. Will the child crumble away to dust?

    He was an adult. A dog. And dangerous, and yelling. Hadn’t he ever seen Old Yeller?

    “Also, the rats were expecting Doc? Huh.” Yeah…it’s interesting that someone down below is looking for him…unless Mr. Fox was using radio to info to base downstairs.

    This is showing the past of Holly and the Endtown we know. At this moment of the story, Flask is moving along a path leading to being a member of a Topsider colony, where she will fall in love…and suffer what follows.
