The move is not starting well. One of their cats has gotten very sick. I usually do single donations through the yellow “donate” button on the endtown auction block page. This link should work for anyone interested. https://endtownauctionblock.wordpress.com/
The flaw might not be common knowledge, but Flask knew about the it, and Wally probably learned it when Flask turned Linda and she said “Always cutting corners..limited resources. It’s inevitable that the biosuits would end up with a weak spot…”
and easier to say, too.
And Alan scores his second possessed Topsider!! I hope this one is incapacitated. If “Eye” gets in, all bets could be off. When “Eye” was inside Jim, it ran around with a broken neck(it had twisted Jim’s head completely around), Jim-Thing’s fingers had been bitten off, and Jim-Thing kept moving even through poison gas.
Good point. If one of these guys just wants to kill the monsters they see in their crazedmind…then it makes sense that they’d go for the gun. But if “Eye” has taken over…well, a zero gun is too quick and clean. “Eye” likes to create suffering and fear and the knife is better for that. At least that’s my guess. :-)
Alan acted decisively when Amesworth was about to shoot them all. He got the gun and tossed her He does have some fortitude.
Maybe…since it isn’t speaking (“little cat…etc”), this Topsider has been “infected” but is acting on its own. Once this Topsider’s mind has decayed enough, then maybe “Eye” can get in and take control. Will it eventually be puppet master to a group of bodies? Or will it hop from one to another? Neither case will be much fun for Wally, Alan, and Duffy.
At first I thought that “Eye” was transmitting images and/or messing with the Topsider suit video feeds to show the images we see in the panels. But those images also show the subtle lattice of the gate diagrams as an “overlay”. But what if the gate lattice diagram is the only thing Eye is transmitting and that pattern is corrupting the “software” of the Topsiders’ minds? Then the nasty images are coming from inside the Topsider’s heads as they go insane. That’s probably bad, right?
