By the way, where IS Unity right now?
You know, for an organization that exists to dehumanize and oppose nonhumans, that was a very weird way to have Sweetheart bound up. On the slab on her back, like a human . She’s a dog, why didn’t they just muzzle her and stick her in a doggie crate, or if they needed her to be accessible for torturing, chain her to the floor?
Now that I think about it, why didn’t they bother to muzzle Sweetheart at all? If I was holding a dog captive against it’s will, I’d consider the muzzle mandatory. Especially considering she’s a genetically engineered battledog and all. Seriously, It’s like they completely missed the fact that Sweetheart is canine!
Fair enough, but it still seems too easy. They can’t just grab Liv and Sweetheart and get out of there and then back to business as usual.
There has to be a catch or something plot-relevant about to happen. Else, what was the whole point of this story arc?
That would be inappropriate – getting involved with one’s field commander that way…
I am at once both relieved and worried. On the one hand, it’s great to see Gin and Sweetheart alright after they were kidnapped by A-Sig.
On the other, I am suspicious of how quick and easy that was, and the fact that our heroes managed to not only find their location but also get there seemingly before A-Sig had a chance to actually DO anything to them.
A-Sig is supposed to be an actual threat, right? Either Nick’s newfound hacking mojo really is such a major spanner in A-Sig’s plans, or this was some sort of honeypot to lure the rest of Skin Horse into a bigger trap.
That’s what they WANT you to think, Sophie!
That’s using your head, Tip! Or rather, using Nick’s head…
Why do you think evil overlords are always scheming in the shadows?
Although to be fair, I recall at least one case where the bad guy was only in the shadows because the heroes had accidentally knocked out the power on the way into his lair…
Wait, WHY would A-Sig want to torture these two as opposed to just killing them? Don’t they already have all the info they need on the non-humans from the Project Skin Horse files that Mr. Green stole? They seem too pragmatic to be torturing prisoners for fun?
Huh. You know, you never hear of anyone being haunted by the ghosts of all the insects they’ve killed.
