About time Dissenssion's witty link-text to this trde actually delivered what it promised:

So now it turns out it was Tarot who spread all that 12/21/2012 nonsense?

Speaking of the soul shattering prediction Dragon made, which if I recall hasn't happened yet; I kind of wonder if what Tarot realized in that beat panel was that either Dragon made it up or that this was what she was talking about all those years ago.

Edit: Given what Grape said in the strip (that basically nothing along those lines has happened yet) I'm really leaning towards it being that Dragon was lying about the whole thing to seem cool.

The double ship sets sail.
Grape and Max coming? You bet!
Tarot tried stopping them to no avail.
Let's hope it's something they won't soon regret!

Tarot is starting to remind me of the Kanassans from DragonBall Z abridged. Can see the future, yet it doesn't help at all.

Sometimes you just have to go with it, Max.

Actually those two predictions are two different ones. The one being referred to in today's strip is this one which, as I said above looks like it might be nothing but a lie. The one about the end times is this one which was referring to nothing more then the beginning of the end of Pete and Dragons game.

I suspect Max is kept in hammerspace for Grape's convenience.

Ok, I admit when I saw the way the arc was going I was actually somewhat expecting to not see Max to satisfy a small curiosity to see what Grape would do if it were just Peanut, Tarot and Grape. I thank you, Mr. Griffin for dragging Max along. <3 ...

... And making Maxwell Grape's travelling package. :D

So it's Peanut, Tarot, Grape and Max on a double date. This is going to be an arc to remember.

Seeing, before she came, that Grape would win the argument and reach back to pull Maxwell by the ear, Tarot arranged his teleportation at the requisite time. Nothing magic about Grape...

And today's ditty...

So Grape's going to tag along,
into this world of strange and stranger.
Into this plot she's dragged her Max
so she'll have to protect him from danger.

He shouldn't be worried with how he got here
but should fret over where he's going.
It's a place where he could face fun or fret,
which? He has no way of knowing.

Tarot's a patient, nice, little Dog
and she's done her best to dissuade Grape
It may be best for them to stay close
in case the the group need to escape...

Nah. Like I said earlier, Tarot did it. She knew Grape would argue and win and then put her hand back there so she arranged to teleport him in at the right time.

Fun version: Grape's hammerspace is so powerful, it can hold/summon Max! :D

Not-so-fun version: Max happened to be outside the window doing something unrelated (he hangs around with alley cats, remember?), so Grape just reached out to where she knew he would be, and pulled him in. Hence, what means is "how did I get inside the house?"

Just an excuse, mayhaps?

Anyway, I know someone suggested that Grape would do this, so they were right on that account. As for what happens next, we shall see...

Also, I just noticed, throughout each panel, you can see the shadows in the background growing larger. In fact, upon further review, the background shadows have been undulating in the other two strips of this arc as well - and only in this arc.

This...must mean something. Maybe the very fabric of reality is already starting to rip...
