    Well, at least Tracy is waiting for backup from Sam this time and not running off on his own like he did in the last case. If nothing “unusual” happens, they may just get through the play before an arrest is called for. Of course, a murder has already taken place in the Playhouse today, as far as we know.

    Tess will also be on the lookout for that body in the meantime.

    It seems quiet here tonight. Maybe turkey dinners have put everyone to sleep. :)

    Things will get exciting I’m sure….I’m betting somehow Vitamin Flintheart may get to play hero.

    Dick needs to watch the play from an angle where he wont be inadvertently spotted …

    That’s true. Dick would be way easier for Gruesome to spot than the other way around. Hopefully, Gruesome is paying more attention to his acting than scanning the audience for cops.

    I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but I think it ought to be something more exciting than Gruesome spotting DT and running away.

    Query : “ What do we do now ?”Advice : “Watch the Play and keep an Eye out for anything unusual”-———————————————

    Well, no need for anyone to remind us, that Tess is a Detective too . . .We’ve seen that door - The Tracy Agency - enough times, and know that she heads it up. And a few may realize that she’s likely the person that “shot” (7-13-12) - and killed Davey Maylar (aka Mr. Crime - the 2nd)Although, given the connotation (?) in speaking of “Plays”, she’s had her ‘Day or Two’ (or rather) a Few ‘specials’, that likely served to burnish her Résumé. No burden of detail, but back in time, she wasn’t one to ‘stand still’ - when the likes of Stooge Viller, John Lavir or Edward made a play at her, and already Morrow (here), seems to have dropped a ‘hint’, of concern about her male partner at the Agency ?

    In ability, Tess may not likely shift (mental) gears as fast as Tracy demonstrated yesterday, but she’ll likely move quicker than Mike to get Dick to chase Gruesome if the later does a Big Ben Bolt away, with (say) buddy Einstein, waiting around the corner, in a Car, with an idling engine, wishing to put a new face on the escape process ? Like Neil, guess I can ‘speculate’ too - and assume that Gruesome (having just done Otis in) is on ‘Super Alert’ that the body may be found, and he may have to move on - rather more quickly than planned,

    Further, perhaps it’ll be a Tess sharp eye, that spots the Otis broom - carelessly on the floor (?), left by Gruesome as he sped away with the remains of Janitor Otis?

    Good pace! I hope DL is taking notes and counting the “Bravos” from us. Then, when he gets the Marty & Spuid franchise, he’ll know what to do and what not to do.

    And speaking of “Keeping an EYE” . . .

    I’ll Happily Endorse Vista Bill’s ‘thoughtful’, and generous gesture - yesterday, in donating a carton of Cigarettes to Sam

    Tracy is smart enough to let the play go on and avoid panicking the audience. Once Sam arrives, maybe accompanied by some uniforms, an arrest can be made afterward, maybe at a cast party if there is one. But, as Sydney Phillips observed, Gruesome will be on heightened alert (having committed one murder and hidden a body opportunistically), so Tracy, Tess, and Sam will need to be careful; there are way too many civilians around!

    Fortunately, he’s keeping that trademark bright-yellow-seen-from-across-the-hall-even-in-dim-light fedora of his off his head…

    Otis - feeling ili and left ?-————————————————-By now I’d bet, he no longer has any ‘feelings’, no longer ill, just very still, and all he’s likely left may be a will ! (?)
