    It's Thursday, it's mid-afternoon in London, it's another wrongheaded morning in Mericky, it's who-the-fuck-knows-when in Australia, and it's time for more Crossed Hideosity.

    Episode 39, live and free-to-air.

    Remember: Not safe for work, not safe for minors, not safe for people of a nervous disposition, not safe for JPod, not safe for the Golden Bough, not safe for THE MAGICAL AMAZING ROBOT.

    GOLUHK.

    I look forward to somebody articulate taking over shakeys diary –
    and the great diarist himself handcuffed on a mobility scooter rolled out the back of a speeding ice cream van playing O sole mio at full blast as it barrels through a crossed hoedown barbecue

    Staple gun to the face for their seemingly female "X-Crossed messiah" - good a way as any I suppose if you want to salute in a new and exciting way. I wondered when someone would ask Shaky for his story and what the reply would be...I thought it was perfect from captain lucky only to be shot down in a single "none of your fucking business" breath. Admittedly I was more curious about the asshole from the other group who took off on his own and whether we'd see him poking his head around a tree or if he was already inside the fences. (If he found it, though I imagine he will have.) Maybe he's already snuffed pudgy Jon - he and Rab would be a wicked force against Shaky coming back inside, for sure.

    Thanks Si - great work. (And I loved the annual!! Jackson's tell-all was immensely wonderful!!!)

    I didn't get the staple gun - what was it meant to tell us?

    Probably hence forth her head dress will identify her office when she officiates at disembowelment and head circumcision ceremonies

    Such a strange experience reading this srip - I grew up in Stromness, drive past the Stones o' Stenness most days - really quite odd to see them as a backdrop to the madness.

    I wonder if she's actually Crossed or if whatever happened to her in the other group was so awful that it drove her into a kind of uber-madness that's so pure that it allows her to influence/rule the Crossed.

    So when did Richie get Jasper's heat-detecting optical device? I thought Jasper, who had bailed out of the group and stolen its supplies, had possession of that.

    Richie's using a gun-scope or monocular jobbie there, not Jasper's heat-thingy.

    Re the staple gun, I thought they were stapling another face on to her as I couldn't see any cross or x, unless I'm missing something. And she has soldiers with guns, looks like Cava's idyll will be violently terminated soon.

    Just gone back and reread, apologies, there is an X on show, they were just stapling the cloth to her face. Blame my eyes. I wonder if Shaky will willingly become Crossed as he says doesn't want the adrenaline to stop, and in the original series when one of the survivors is infected he says something like 'feels like venom but you want more'.

    Well..., seems like Viceroy made it.
    For now.
    I was sure he would be killed off during the sortie..., thought when he volunteered to go along with Shakey to investigate the little mystery there that his end was fast approaching.
    His luck hasn't run out just yet I guess..., but luck - oh, such a faithless thing... :)

    Why does everyone want to see Viceroy come to a grisly end? He might have the charisma of a housebrick, but I fail to see why he attracts the derision he does. And he's "lucky", so he should really take the role of Mascot to those who've been around him.

    I like Viceroy, the Gamekeeper not so much...., but I figure they both will meet grisly ends sooner or later - this being the crossed, a grisly end is pretty much all there is..., I just thought Viceroy would have played his part by now..., glad he's still around :D

    I was surprised that only Seline didn't make it back. I also have been enjoying the slow build-up of the nun as the main villain. While thinking about how the last pieces of Shaky's story would come out I was thinking that someone else would press him on it. The scenario I had imagined was that the nun would come to Cava and speak to them and ask for Shaky or something like that. At which point everyone turns to him and demands answers(this could certainly still happen though). As far as the nun herself and the X, I had considered the same thing as johnjones above(that she is not actually crossed, just insane), but it doesn't fit. She lives with the crossed now and would definitely have come into contact with the infection. I am now thinking that it is more likely a mutation of the crossed disease. Either the group ran afoul of a crossed with an X and the nun was left behind or something like: they are running from the crossed, and are passing by / over a pit filled with crossed corpses and in all that infectious shit a new strain has emerged. The nun somehow falls in(so yes, she is the Joker apparently lol).

    I think that the nun might possibly be immune to the crossed infection, though obviously not immune to mental illness.

    In comparison to WIsh you were here volume 1 when we see the Nun on the boat, her appearance in this chapter doesn't actually appear to show the cross... all I see is blood running down from the hairline.

    I think you can just see the bottom part of one half of the X. Also, this wouldn't be the first time one of the Crossed rashes got left off by the colorist.
