Hahahahaha! As a long time Bond fan, I can totally see that!WhoElseButQuagmire wrote:Heh, in that case I can see the wolves surrounding Joel when a voice comes from behind. "It's ok, fellas, this is an old friend of ours...we need to make him feel welcome." Keene dramatically enters from around the wolves, grinning like a Bond villian. "Mr Robinson, I presume....we have a lot to talk about..."

Back at Lindberg house, Fox was sleeping in a basket, and we saw Bailey with her pillow (and no need for that, if they're sleeping at the wolves' in their own bed). Thus, IMO, in this arc King was sleeping at the wolves'.WhoElseButQuagmire wrote:Was it ever established if King and Bailey are staying at the Lindbergs or with the wolves? It would be the worst of all "or was it"s for a naked Joel to wake up being strangled by Fox shouting "You! What the }##%%}# are you doing in my house! In my cousin and brother in law's bed! And what have you done with my cousin and best friend you monster!" He might even prefer the alternative .... Waking up in a dark room , the only light coming from the eyes on the snarling faces of an upset pack of wolves surrounding an intruder.
Also, Pete was willing to allow them a parting kiss...at least he kept his jerkish-ness in check till then. Even so...this comic makes me want to make the putrid peacock* suffer for separating these two all the more.
In addition, when Pete mentioned Bailey was to be taken to "the other side of the world," it got me thinking...please direct your attention to the seventh frame here. Since "Gardens" was written in after the fact, I wonder if the real Babylon is the battleground.
Personally, I like the cliffhanger style of these epic arcs; keeps you guessing and coming back for more. Keep it up, Rick! This is one of the reasons this series is so great!
