“Nobody skips out on my Community Center Whittling Workshop! NOBODY!”
Such an odd request at the end, Why should Sid forgive them? and why is it important to Fenrick that he does so?
It would seem that Fenrick knew this would be the outcome of his part in the trial. He may have known his fate even before he took the case. “It’s all for the greater good”
This sheds some light on his detachment in regard to Heather Hoss’s fate after the trial. He could already see where things were going and that he would be unable to help her further.
Now there would be a nice moment for a cool security rat: " Big bad wolf…..who comes with a knife to a shootout.." :) Poor Fendrick by the way – he knew this would happen. A Traitor-thing.
I must admit that this road has had way to many twists and turns (even for Endtown). I am hopelessly lost (even lost-er than an Easter egg). If there IS a greater good out there somewhere, who or what it might be and from what source it may derive is beyond the limits of my poor imagination. Thank goodness AN is at the wheel, because I still trust in his magnificent storytelling. I just hope we are getting close to turning that crucial corner and coming face to face with the “Oh THAT’S what he had in mind” moment. Otherwise, the non-existent food shortage might be solved by a complete lack of surviving consumers… ;-)
I would have thought the other barflies might have a few things to say about this impending murder.
Where is the comedy relief character in all of this?
Where is the hint of dawn?
Where be the rainbows, unicorns, and smiling poop emoticons? Where?!?
There was no win win. Old saying…..no good deed goes unpunished. Fenrick did a good deed…….now it’s the punishment phase. Damn I hope the Rats show up!
I have to confess. I’ve read Endtown from the beginning and have generally had a good idea of what was happening (except for the horse riders and the red), but this arc has me completely confounded. Wolves are bad, no wolves are not bad – they’re being indoctriniated. Pigs are being lured to kill themselves and then being eaten – no, there’s discussion that this is not so, that the bones were planted. Someone’s at the back of it all but not the mayor or the editor or the wolves, but someone mysterious we haven’t seen yet. Or maybe none of the above is true. In other words, I haven’t a clue what is going on!
And when those fools get arrested (hopefully!!!), they are going to wish they had an attorney like Fenrick ready to defend their sorry hides.
Could be worse. Could be a penknife.
It would be the deepest of ironies if Fenrick were to be rescued by a horse that decides to intervene rather than leave him to the self-destructive fate he seems to have resigned himself to. Even moreso if it were somehow Heather that did it.
Like he say “means to an end” at least he won´t have to be there for the rest of the chaos, since it is going to be dark times ahead.
Well the true nature of the canines are to be seen in full view. Any sympathy will be totally gone soon.
Fenrick says defending Hoss was a means to an end, meaning he wasn’t doing it for her benefit, but to further someone’s agenda. Maybe he knew the acquittal would result in a riot that would bring down the rats and did it for that purpose, or maybe he was unwittingly played like a lot of other pawns in the chess game. He may have truly hoped good would come from his participation, but now realizes he was sacrificed, though willingly. He anticipated these consequences but hoped they could be avoided.
I would have liked for the wolves to have been set up, but it looks like they truly are a guilty bunch.
