    Did the bodyguard police officer go out back to check on something?

    It makes more sense that he has been knocked out or killed.

    Good morning™, order givers !

    I could almost like him if I were Zelda but his eagerness to “finish her” would be a big turn off.

    Clybourne may be having second thoughts.

    Not sure why she doesn’t run since, in the last panel, no one is in arm’s reach of Zelda, much less holding onto her. That said, the same panel sets up Clybourne to have a change of heart (assuming he has one) based on Zelda’s soulful, pleading, eye contact.

    Look, lady – I don’t know who you are, but this guy’s nuttier than the proverbial fruitcake. Why don’t we both blow this dump?

    ok when the normal guy wants to kill her there and the ‘sane’ one is a freak face with an exposed brain, you’ve got to figure your day can only go up.

    It’s about time for Vitamin Flintheart to step in and call for Tracy

    Last panel, Zelda looks so defenseless and afraid.

    It is a little unbelievable to me that the show is about to start, the audience has arrived, and nobody is backstage to witness this.

    Now that was odd. An internal war, perhaps?

    A brief scuffle by the exit won’t go unnoticed for long. The Clybourne Dilemma is clear. Help the comely, bound Zelda, or aid and abet the fiend Splitface. What’s right for Zelda is wrong for the story, so my bet is Clybourne fails at the chance to do good.

    Where are we today, relative to the stage and the theater seating, and when is this happening? Friday showed us that the “city-scape” backdrop we are seeing in the background of today’s 2nd panel is part of the stage scenery, and the performance was in full swing in Friday’s strip. Presumably, Zelda was either in the audience or had a back stage pass because of her relationship with Vitamin. Where exactly was she when Clybourne approached her with the phony phone call gambit? How is all this commotion going on so near to the stage in the middle of a show, or even during intermission, without someone hearing or seeing that something is amiss? And where are Tracy and Sam? Did they stay for the show for Vitamin’s sake, even though Tracy really didn’t want to see it? Tracy gave Vitamin a Wrist Wizard – did he also give Zelda one, which maybe she has strapped to her leg? This setup has tremendous potential, but Chester Gould would have lined all these elements up in a clear presentation of what was happening and when, so that the reader could understand what was happening, and enjoy the suspense as the story unfolded.

    Sorry about the mess at the bottom of my last comment – GoComics’ site did something weird. My comment ends with “as the story unfolded.” Thanks.

    This story reminds me of “The Mystery of Mary” by Grace Livingston Hill.

    Clybourne’s next move, for good or ill, seems to be the hook we are left with today. In panel 3, I see the desperate Zelda, her wrists bound, trying to rip the gag off, presumably to scream for HELP. Meanwhile, the inner conflicts and turmoil of the 3-in-1, Tulza (who seems to favor sparing his former flame), Haf-‘n-Haf (favoring killing her, though maybe not immediately), and Splitface (seemingly the most intent on Zelda’s death, yet not in full control of the situation nor of their mutual body), lead to inaction and time-wasting delay and mulling of how to proceed (lurking, back to us, in the open backstage exit while the snow blows in).

    I agree that someone should be noticing all this backstage business by now!
