    For those of you who say, how could Mark be the bad guy he's such a charming guy? There are several psychological disorders that have some of the characteristics of being charming and yet they have very destructive behaviors.
    I'm not saying Mark is mental with some sort of disorder, but it is possible that he has those sort of traits. Very charming lad, but has some very very destructive abilities as well.

    Now as for this for episode. Very nice indeed, I'm actually in love with the picture of the push. The devastation of the push now needs to be my wallpaper. I have been enjoying the flashback in this comic.
    My only concern is I want to know who is behind Kait now. heh.

    @Masterful Eyes - I was actually just thinking how insane (and frustrating) it would be to jump from one cliffhanger to the other. I wouldn't necessarily be jarring, because everyone wants to know what happens to Kait, but now everyone wants to see what happens with the punching. I mean, I doubt that will happen, but its an interesting possibility. In any case, next week is going to be awesome.

    Unless it's a skip week.

    It better not be a skip week. This is my comic book crack. It keeps me sane enough to actually live.

    No it isn't that jarring, just bloody fidgeting. There is one thing this flashback does. It gives some of the characters emotional and personal alibis to not be behind Kait. Unlike everyone else Mark doesn't have me fooled. I think the guy has a wicked smile and he's planning something wicked. ha.

    It was a great read! Specially the part where KK gets all hot and bothered when he acted as the Freakangels "organic gun." Seriously, I love KK in this, and believe it or not, Mark doesn't seem all that evil, which is awesome.

    Now I really want Mark to return, ohh the possibilities! I get so much enjoyment from FreakAngels. Thank you Warren and thank you Paul.

    That was cool... but goddammit want more!

    I'm wonderfluffy today. The weekend has been kind and my stomach no longer hates food nor does my head feel like it's going to explode. Can't ask for more after last weeks week of no food and nasty nasty nasty head aches.

    Every so often reading this I wish that this was being published in 2000ad rather than by an Avatar (no offence to those from Avatar :) )

    And then I realise that, bad as the skip weeks are, 2000ad wouldn't allow this length of publication...

    "Whose bright idea was it to run into the bloody woods? We can't get a proper shield up with all these trees in the way--"

    I think that would be Arkady (E74 P4) right? Wonder if she feels responsible for what is about to happen - and if that contributed to her drug problem.

    Great episode, as always.

    To be fair, I don't think any of them thought running into the woods that far through before doing it. More of a sudden realization of how poorly that's working out than anything.

    As for skip weeks, oh that's nothing. I just realized SGU isn't coming back up again until April. A week or two off of anything, cliffhanger or no, really isn't a big deal.

    Just getting a story ramped up and then nothing for four months? That's just vindictive.

    (Or maybe it's easier to justify selling two box sets a season [1.0/1.5] that way. I honestly don't know.)

    @regeneration - Wonder if [Arkady] feels responsible for what is about to happen - and if that contributed to her drug problem.

    Well assuming they're about to pull off the big Crash then she's already had her overdose experience (overdose was at age 15, crash happened when they were all 17).

    In regards to what people were saying earlier, about Mark splitting off but Luke staying with the group:

    I reckon the 'Big push' is a ways of yet, but whomsoever is in that helicopter is about to be on the receiving end of atleast KK going all out. From here, i can see the violence escalating, the Freakangels getting more organized in their attacks/evasion till everything goes all to hell. Whether it's Mark who talks them into it, or if he does something later,i imagine he's going to do something so flat out evil while not giving half a damn, even Luke is revolted. Like towards the end of Catch 22, Yosarian confronts Arfy who's just raped and murdered a girl, defending himself plainly, even smiling in his conviction.

    "I only raped her once" he explained.
    Yossarian was aghast. "But you killed her, Aarfy! You killed her!"
    "Oh, I had to do that after I had raped her," Aarfy replied in his most condescending manner. "I couldn't very well let her go around saying bad things about us, could I?"

    Did you guys ever figure out amongst yourselves whether a mutant creature with psychic powers had a right to use it's psychic powers to procreate? That is, if an animal had the power to remove free will is it still rape...

    i am not using my words correctly.

    And anyway after a while every one would have some level of defense, even if it's all the weak ones hang together and create chaos if you try and rape us gambit.
    • CommentTimeDec 7th 2009
    Rape = non-compliant sex, done against free will
    Removal of free will = removal of chance to refuse, done against free will.

    Seems pretty rapey to me.

    Gotcha. But the thing is isn't just a highly evolved form a charm. That sounds ridiculous, yes, but actual comic book mind control is a bit ridiculous.
