    I think you all need a couple hours at the park in the sunshine or something. You're all so stressed! Me, I loved this episode -- in fact, I think I enjoy these quiet bridging episodes more than the big explosive ones! Even the exposition-heavy ones. The quiet little ones that cover the span of maybe two or three freakminutes and don't really feature anything happening are so nice and snuggly.

    Really not helping my "I'm not gay!" insistence that I've had to be re-iterating to pretty much everyone I know lately.

    Anyway. Very nice episode. KK was beautifully joyous when informing Karl he should be grateful for her services in obliterating the Evil Tea Wine.

    I agree. I like the quiet ones better too, I think we get to know the characters better in them.

    I also teared up at the strawberry incident, really beautiful.

    One good thing happened this week, my employers had cut off the internet connection like two weeks ago, but now it´s back on since yesterday, so I can finally enjoy freakangels friday again!!! Completely saved my weekend, since it was doomed to be a boring weekend at work with little connection to the outside world.

    I love Kait's perpetually grumpy face... she's so cute.
    Proper baddies next week mayhap?

    I think Kait is staring down Alice... Connor said she'd smell the Bad on her... Plus, who the fuck is the new girl? she may be thinking. She's not a FreakAngel, after all.

    Miki mentioned Kait going around screened-do you think that works both ways? as in, no one else can sense her, but neither can she sense anyone else. in a sense, it would make her job harder. but if it doesn't, she should already know who alice is, and EXACTLY what brought her here. hence the glare- its kind of a "you yet exist only on the good will of these few i trust as little as i trust anyone." kind of a threat.

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and I've just discovered Freakangels about a month back.
    (Will post an intro at the proper section after this. ^_^)

    To my surprise I have been back every Friday to read the newest installments. ^_^

    I really like this week's - everybody finally comes together! Its so heartwarming, but given everyone's singular temperaments I predict it will end in tears and arguments with no resolution.

    Unless.... the something that Kirk sees is so urgent that provokes unanimous agreement...

    I can't wait to see more character development for Kait!

    And yes the strawberry scene is quite moving... >_<

    I ran off to play Friday before I could comment.

    I think he's seeing a second wave coming - the first wave was cannon fodder, designed to make them think they had scared them off. Sure, leaving one alive and sent back to tell the others what naughty children they've been was a lovely gesture, but it's a good distraction. If the leader of the attacks (who has to be Mark - I can't see anyone else having the balls to pull this off), didn't tell the first wave a second wave would be coming, the Freakangels would have no way to know because they can't mind read what's not there. Running off a few asumptions, if Mark was apart of the group after previous battles, and he knows they retire to cave to chill sometimes, a second wave is a good timing because they will be relaxing, relatively unprepared and away from the landing site.

    This line of thinking makes me concerned for Kirk - he's alone.

    True, but Alice and Conner went straight from the tower to the 'Cave and were the first ones on the scene, so I can't imagine it would be too far to back him up. Plus there's the benefit of Kirk seeing the oncoming wave first. Unless they're coming from the sky (and behind) I think Kirk will be okay. I think it's a little early to start killing main characters off, since Warren's said this will be a LONG series. Injury I can see, but they have Miki. Unless he's well and truly mortally wounded, he ought to be fine, methinks.

    Thought: maybe the Freakangels aren't the only ones with powers? What if Mark has hooked up with some continental-European assholes that can mess with people's brains? I realize this would go against the statement of twelve kids being born at the same time (because it's more than twelve at that point), but it's just a thought.

    That's a good question.

    that hadn't even occurred to me...

    I was kinda getting the feeling that the rabble we've seen the Freakangels fight off so far aren't really the villains as such, more of an environmental hazard.

    The ominous panels of Kirk this week smell to me like something wicked this way coming. A real, malicious, puissant adversary on the way... maybe Mark, maybe... someone/thing else...

    I am well-prepared to see myself proved utterly mistaken on Friday, the unpredictability of the action so far is one (but only one) of the reasons I keep coming back.

    Alice's tear when she eats the fresh strawberry was quite simply my favorite moment of this week's installment. That small incident captured the feeling of how much had been lost when the world flooded over. If the Whitechapel area is somewhat hanging on, other areas of the world must be in shittier shape.

    I did pick up my TP copy of FREAKANGELS Volume 1 and started flipping through it. A small curse escaped my lips during a scan through some of the early pages. KK made a casual reference to inflicting death from above, which I utterly forgot about until the gang armada attack.

    As for the past week, it was volunteer on three different campaigns including Obama and the effort to save LGBT marriage up through election day followed by vegging out for the rest of the week at a relative's place while being entertained by CROOKED LITTLE VEIN's description of Godzilla bukkake and Rachel Maddow's news show.

    I was also mulling over the idea that the first wave was for distraction. People celebrate after victory (tea wine, anyone?) and o course they didnt bother reloading the huge gun, because there is always time to do it tommorrow.... right?

    As for Mark, I dont think he'll show is face for a bit, not after sending Alice to gun down the Angels. But you never know.

    These two quotes suddenly remind me of Sirkka's demostration power in eps 30 pg 5... I wonder if Kirk will use his power at the incoming threat since he is alone? And why didn't the Freakangels just use their powers during the first wave of attack instead of mobilizing guns and villagers...?

    If like Spiraltwist mentioned, the leader of the second wave is Mark, things are going to get very dangerous...

    Like one of them was saying, their powers aren't exactly common knowledge. And it appears they want to keep it that way. I also look at it as using the appropriate tool for the job - you don't need something huge to swat flies.

    More of a scalpel than a hatchet, you're saying?

    Yes.

    And I really wish it was Friday. NOW.
