This is probably going to end with it all being "just a dream"...

Welp, that came crashing down. Let's see how King can talk his way through this!

Also, is that a "Carry on my Wayward Son" - Kansas, reference in the Link to the forums?

Edit : And perhaps a Daft Punk - "Human After All", Title text as well? So many Music references can be made here!

Once he tells her his old name, I wonder if she'll recognize it from something Fox or someone else around there may have told her. If not, that's some extra explanation I doubt King'll quite enjoy.

I has just occurred to me recently, with this sadly being the last cosmic nerds arc, it may have the final 'Wake Up'-s. Part of me wants to see what that actually looks like from the perspective of someone who isn't waking from it. Even if it's just a little '*ping*' and they're gone, it'd still be a nice thing to see.

At this point, King may better spill out every bean of his old life -hence the arc's title. Because at this point only the complete, for how unsettling, truth can make Bailey decide if she's in love with the dog she married regardless of his past.
Luckily this didn't happen in front of Fox: I fear FACE would've been the first reaction.

She believes, and she doesn't want to,
in all this that Pete's put her through.
She's resisting this truth, this last part
that threatens to crash her mighty heart.
She doesn't care about the game,
or if proof of aliens could bring her fame,
all she wants is her Kingy back
even with that dumb 'human' crack
He's about to tell her the softest truth
and hope Pete doesn't show her 'proof'
by turning him back into the Joel thing
and telling her about the whole soul thing.
She can take this; she can cope.
She can show her King has hope.

I believe in Bailey's belief in King but he's going to need a good explanation for this...

Finally! It was about time! Welp, this is going to be a long arc. I just hope the whole human thing will be settled as soon as possible, I got tired of this since a long while. I'd be more interested to see more about Tarot's past and how she got involved in the game. Rick has not revealed almost anything about her, even when she is supposed to be as important as King in the whole thing. Actually, we've seen Sabrina much more involved into this than her master, which gives her more reasons to be the Avatar. For all we have seen about her she has no other role in this comic other than to be Peanut's magical girlfriend. :?

Also, Queen reference in the A/T. Love it! :D

King was able to keep the secret for 4 years, 5 months and 29 days. or 1640 days :D (not counting tarot because she read his mind so he himself did not tell her.) i think i did the math right but i am not sure so don't throw Rotten Tomatoes at me if i'm wrong please.

We can only hope...

Oh man...the cat's (human's?) out of the bag now. Bailey's not taking it too well, yet I have a feeling this will have an "or was it?" ending, leaving her to initially reject it when she wakes up, but still have suspicions in the back of her mind.

Still, I'm hoping true love will prevail here...come on, Bailey, I know it's a shock that you've been snuggling with a former human, but just remember, the keyword there is FORMER; the past is in the past!

Poor Bailey, this shocked her. Anyway she loves him, she'll accept him like he is and also what he was.

Gutsy or caught in the moment with things rolling too fast for him?

Summoning Pete in the bedroom probably wasn't the smartest of moves and now it's going to snowball. There's no turning back now, especially now that it's left his um.. biscuit hole.
