    All those websites that post a 'panel of the week'? They need to be looking at page 5!

    Page 5: BOOM!

    Jesus, Paul. You're going to wind up breaking something by the time we're done here, you know?

    Had a nice week! Gonna have an even nicer weekend!

    Oooh, page 5!

    I'm feeling happier now, 3 days after having to get a tooth pulled. Still weird though.

    I actually managed to get to the P.M. without gasping the "FREAKANGELSFRIDAYWOOO" gasp. Must be getting senile.

    In other news, who needs hairdressers when you have friday mornings, boredom and beard trimmers? Then my housemate catches me styling a spiky, quiff-y kinda thing, laughs and calls me chagrin-sparkle-pants. I haven't even seen the movie and I just gave myself a Cullen haircut without noticing. Twilight sensationalism has infected me. It's gone airborne, notify the president.

    First thought - Arkady's got awfully sane all of a sudden. Is that what's stronger about her this time, or is the dippiness a cover?

    Second thought - what did he show Connor that shocked the self-pity out of him?

    Third thought - it's not what she showed him, she killed him, didn't she? First two panels on page six, he's dead. She killed him with a psychic blast to the side of the head, and he came back. They're all going to spend the next few episodes killing each other and coming back stronger, aren't they?

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    @ PatrickBrown - I hadn't seen that until you mentioned it, but going back and looking again, I think you might be right!

    as much as i love page 5 (and its absolutely awesome!) i like page 6 the best, its the mood and the subtle changes mmmm love it

    and i believe that Connor reacted to page 5 as he did because he saw that the rest of the freakangels were changing, diverging from the same vicious cycle that he was ranting about earlier

    and i got to agree, Connor may have received his "near death experience", my reaction to page 4 was: "oh shit here comes Arkady's OD experience" (similar to what she gave Luke way back in the beginning)

    That whole episode felt wonderfully deft even before the beautiful page 5 - I could practically hear the information being blasted into Connor's head. It was nice to see the same beatific look that Luke had on his face, too. I think he might well have been killed and then restored, but either way - maybe the glimpse of the Freakpylon from the future convinced him that they could accomplish more than just squabbling?

    My week has been jus fine thanks. Tonight holds beers, gaming and maybe a barbeque, and tomorrow holds movies and snuggling with my other half. Is it wrong of me to try and convince them that Predators actually is the film we want to see, and not Toy Story 3?

    I don't think there is anything left of the park, but page 5 knocked something out of the gaping hole where it used to be.

    Oh man. That was good. I think my favourite episode yet actually... Of course they've basically made the two "worst" members of their group the strongest. How are they going to even the odds?

    Bye Connor, we hardly knew ye. And hello Connor, freshly mindblown, changed man. It's sweet to see a little more of Arkady, makes me wonder how little we have really seen of any of the characters.

    And I'm good, recently found out a policy change I'd been worried about is not going to put me on the street for being unfit to work.

    So maybe Conner will stay now? I can't remember ever seeing him smile like that.
    Powerful episode without exploding anything (except possibly the hidden recesses of Connor's mind.)
    I like how Arkady has become a rock of stability.
    Wasn't that what Connor thought he was doing before?

    loved page 5. well done all round.

    and page 6 made me smile : )
    I needed a smile, so thank you!

    I sincerely doubt that Arkady just out and killed Conner.

    I am perfectly willing to believe that she did to him almost exactly what she did to Luke long ago when she gave him a 'taste' of her OD memories. Conner wasn't willing to listen ( he ALMOST did there, for a moment ) and she didn't have time for it, so she just force-fed his brain the entire day from her perspective.

    So first I thought Arkady was teleporting forward just to give Connor a hug or something. Then page 5 - woah!

    So then I thought she gave him a compressed summary of what's been going on in his absence.

    Now (thanks to PatrickBrown) I'm wondering if she actually killed him. If so, that's a hell of a chance to take - the "we can't die" thing is just a theory at this point.

    Spent much of my day in a meeting deciding what we're going to do with one of our servers that's become a bit erratic. We eventually decided to backup it's contents, format it, upgrade it, then bring it back online all shiny and new. Why I am I mentioning this? The server is named Luke :D

    Man, it looks like Arkady mindfucked Connor without a condom. It may be the "oh-god-I-drove-over-600-km-today" fatigue talking, but that second-last panel looked distinctly like post-coital bewilderment.
