I hope so too. I was a bit sad when Walter died, but he was fighting an evil person and avenged his love’s death. If Kirbee, Chic, and Irving perish, that will be downright depressing.
I hope it’s an avenue of escape opening for them! I wondered if they had tagged along after Wally, but it appears they followed instructions this time and are still inside the colony buildings.
Very good questions. Will the bubble be stabilized? Can an exit door be created so everyone can escape, or the bubble “untwisted” so it can rejoin the rest of reality?
I just remembered the green sprout that Kirbee saw outside their apartment window. Was it a peculiarity just within the bubble, a dream Kirbee had, or is the post-apocalyptic world beginning to recover at last?
I don’t think so, not yet. He would immediately start struggling if that were the case.
I’m thinking that Allen and Duffy (who’s still carrying Wally) need to touch the tape recorder because it became aligned with the Topsider’s plane of existence, thus they’ll become aligned with her and all be able to transport out at once. They need to trust her, in any case. She knows more about what exactly is going on and how to repair it than any of them.
Look at that sky in panel 1! Amazing.
She’s also different from the Topsiders that Wally & Co. are familiar with. Their reality’s Topsiders would have teleported themselves out to safety and left the “mutant freaks” to their fate. I’m looking forward to learning more about who she is and where she’s from.
Oh yes, he set her free because the consequences of not doing so were dire. He thought she was going to do an instant fix right on the spot, and when she said she couldn’t, he’s panicked and is running to fetch Kirbee and Chic.
Studying what she said in the second panel…. she can’t do anything about the situation while in that particular reality bubble. “I can’t do anything about it here!!” which may imply she could do something about it outside the bubble. All she can do right that moment, right at that spot, is pull the four of them out to safety. Then presumably she could stabilize the bubble after that.
All Wally heard was “I can only pull the four of us out”, so he’s now racing in a panic to find Kirbee and Chic so they won’t suffer such a grisly fate. I’m hoping that Kirbee and Chic’s innate curiosity have them somewhere nearby on the beach.
I think so too.
What are you talking about?
