Referring to an ‘Annie’ story arc in the 1990s, and comparing Punjab with his nephew Punjee, Punjab is/was an ordinary human who has had a lot of training to become what he is ‘now’, while Punjee is just starting out on the training.
Remark on the 8/5/2021, Mysta said “No, it only works with other Lunarians.” An easy gloss, but we have seen in the past that Punjab, Oliver Warbucks’ trusted assistant, has picked up on such telepathy.
avenger09 wrote “Hasn’t she been displaying severe weakness?” – We have not (yet) been shown just how weak Mysta’s voice sounded in Honeymoon’s head, or how much she managed to communicate before failing.
That would be “zapped out in the dark part of the month”. When we on earth get a new moon, moon valley is at high noon as they reckon it.
Is it a reference to ‘Midnight Mirror’?
Mysta has zapped Vera before and he has survived and backed off. She knows she doesn’t have to increase the zap, and she doesn’t have to go on the lam for that. . – But there is the chance that one day Vera’s “weak heart” can’t take it anymore and he dies from a zap that he’s survived in the past. That would put Mysta on the spot.
PS. Tracy knows that Mysta and Vera are missing, but aside from the fake Facebook post he doesn’t know definitely that they are missing together. Not yet.
Tracy has more reason, at this point, to think Vera Alldid and Mysta Chimera were in a serious (fatal) accident, than that any kidnapping occurred. The Major Crimes unit knows about Bribery’s ring, perhaps Tracy does too, but it may not have occurred to them that it is in use. And they in the back of their minds are considering whether anything else has been found that counters Mysta’s powers.
Not only do we live in a ‘democracy’ (more like a republic), we also live in a free land with a lot of liberty. There are many things that a majority can’t rule you. They can’t make you eat broccoli if you refuse to, and can’t make you vote if you don’t want to. We need a lot more recognition of that, and take the power back from WashDC and trust it again in the people in our communities.
In 1787 several small states like Rhode Island didn’t want to be bossed by big states. (Back then the states were more important than the national government.) Why shouldn’t it remain true? Is France truly better off with so much centralized in Paris?
