    Sweet, merciful Heavens… Now someone will have to convince Wally that “Holly” is an illusion…

    I’m going to go out on a limb and postulate that these are not illusions. If this is what is keeping the multi-verses tied together, these may be projections of other verses imposed on the gangs verse. Because they are important figures for the people that are here, the verse-knot is broken down enough to allow Wally and the others to see their loved ones. Benny is walking on a floor in his reality but where it is intersecting happens to be open air here.

    Sometimes (often) I wonder whether this strip is drawing to a close.

    Suddenly, topsiders talking to Wally instead of killing him.

    Dead characters coming back to “life” (sort of, I know)

    Kind of like the encore at the end of a play.

    What next? Walt with a fishing pole?

    So the multidimensional twist tie is not without drawing upon other realities and manifesting people from them. Or due to the nature of the multidimensional twist tie it makes the space it’s in more flexible to manifesting memories of people from one’s past.

    Wow. I don’t recall Alan ever seeing Holly? Or is it just that it’s a character on the book?

    Duffy is shouting for the brother he’s lost, while Wally is telling him to come back to reality, while Alan is whispering about the figure emerging on the side.

    All the while the Topsider is silent, watching something he’s probably seen happen a dozen times to a dozen different people.

    The quieter the response, the louder its significance…

    For some strange reason, this – especially the last panel – had me thinking of that old black and white movie that had a terrified woman fleeing down a corridor lined with living arms holding torches for illumination. Funny how the mind works, eh?

    Good Golly, Miss Holly!

    Observant Alan once again sees things first.

    Remember that both Duffy and Alan have mentioned that they expected Wally to be accompanied by the female mouse from the Cracked Cat Cardoodles.

    I am inclined to think these are illusions created from the Cardoodle ’verse. Because no one besides Wally has seen Holly as she was in Endtown. So we are seeing the Cardoodle mouse.

    Tears and fears and feeling proud

    To say, “I love you” right out loud

    Dreams and schemes and circus crowds

    I’ve looked at life that way


    Oh, but now old friends they’re acting strange

    And they shake their heads, they say I’ve changed

    Well something’s lost, but something’s gained

    In living every day


    I’ve looked at life from both sides now

    From win and lose and still somehow

    It’s life’s illusions I recall

    I really don’t know life at all


    “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell

    “It’s some kind of illusion”

    This reminds me of Star Trek Voyager Season 5 Episode 14 “Bliss”

    Bet Alan’s vision will be about clean fresh folded underwear back at Eden. Now we’ll see if this is Holly from Endtown or Cardoodles Holly. If she kisses him…Endtown…..if she hands him a bomb….Cardoodles. We’ll see.

    This is the kind of trick dittos might pull if they’re hungry for some “emotional energy”. Since the Topsiders seem unsurprised by the visions, I don’t think it’s dittos. Generally, Topsiders have no knowledge of dittos, but this one is unimpressed by the visions, so the Topsider may know what these visions are.

    Remember, Wally… It’s some kind of illusion. Although I will admit I’ve missed seeing her, too.

    If the realities are merging (as I think they are), then things are really about to go south.

    Think of how many realities there are. Assume a cardoodle version of Holly exists in 1% of them. Alan gets to go next.

    The Topsider is just leaning against the railing, watching the show.

    Others have already pointed this out: What the Sam Hill are the topsiders doing at this moment? Are they even aware?

    Or was this a trap for Wally and company all along?
