Maybe my idea was a bad one, since toothbrushes remove plaque. Mutated Amesworth wouldn’t have appreciated it.
Where’s Doctor Amesworth? She’s gone. But perhaps some memorial…plaque..would be appropriate.
I really hope that Duffy gets to meet Chic again, if only to apaologize to him for calling Chic “nameless”. Chic lived through experiences like this after meeting Wally…AFTER being hatched into a colony that would have eaten Chic if not for intervention by his biological father— who was probably pushed into that by Chic’s mother. Chic was still threatened with it often.
…bartender asks the elephant; “why the long face?”.
Looks like Duffy’s got a death-grip on his eye talisman ( or “haint ward”).
They’ve escaped the collapsing tower and flaming evil thingie!!! Ummm. Yay?
This is not the same Topsider outpost that launched the satellite ( and which is probably the same outpost where Flask had been before changing). And, as someone mentions in another comment, this project is hidden from Topsider heirarchy and is probably illegal. This “Eden Project” group, at least, has a different view of anthros. I want to see what the “Eden Project” is. Is it the reason that our “Endtown World” reality isn’t dead while all the others around it are dead? (as described by the Fitz A.I.) What was their goal? Maybe more backstory coming.
Kirbee gave Chic the amulet while they were in Eden. In Unity, Eye possessed Jim and did a lot of damage. I believe Unity was the first time we saw signs of Eye or heard Eye speak. Here’s when it first called Wally “little cat” and already showing it was more than Jim, or a crazy/schism Jim by knowing things that Jim would not. https://www.gocomics.com/endtown/2014/11/17
Duffy has already encountered this…phenomenon, when it took Ravenscroft. Even then, he jumped into it to either try to save Ravenscroft, or to salvage his goggles and gloves. Duffy has backbone. This however, is creepy as all getout. Without reason to hope, nothing to lose by grabbing a charm donated by a kid Duffy had little respect for.
Alan looks at Wally with a shocked expession, then says: "You KNOW that guy!?!? "
