Gargoyle trap? well as long as Walter Peck doesn't want the trap open, it should work ;) Snorf is now my favorite word :lol: Now the question remains: Is Jess playing dead or did she pass out from fear? OR did she pass out because she fell in love with the gargoyleplease don't hurt me?

I kinda get the feeling here that the main story will be Zach, Keene and Jessica going into the Temple or something to shutdown/capture the Gargoyles and Cory will just be the comedic end or something and not really be that big of a deal. Which means if it draws out this story and the semi shipping tension as well I am on board this train driven by the possible teasing from Keene to come in the future.

The newest species out round here
is the wild, wandering, gargoyle.
Be careful that you don't find one
or Earth may not be the only soil.
Of all the mad things Jess has to see,
this one finds her stuck in a trap.
Of all the reactions she'll regret
most the one ending in Zach's lap.
This, for him, is normal; no panic.
He's back on what he calls safe ground.
He'll carry her off as best he can;
Hell try and keep her safe and sound.

I think you got the wrong size cage Keene - it could probably protect two from the gargoyle, but three's a crowd. :P

It's nice to see Jessica's beginning to wake up to the whole "mythical beings are real" idea... though perhaps "wake up" wouldn't be the best way to put it. I don't think her mind was quite ready for that much proof just then. :lol:

I'm guessing that Zach will be able to control the gargoyle. Otherwise they're pretty much doomed.
(That is, unless we're just misjudging the gargoyle's intentions - perhaps he was just going to break them out of the cage? Yeah, I'm sure that's it...)

I burst out laughing when Jessica instinctively played dead. I think her and Zach are perfect for each other.

Also noting that she's some sort of Flat-Earth-Atheist: the supernatural beings clearly exist, but she's disbelieving at every turn.

Part of me expects the next strip to have the gargoyle lick Keene and hand him a stick. The idea of control of the Gargoyles somehow defaulting to Zach, the prophet, now that the god and his avatar are gone also occurred to me. It would certainly screw with Jessica.

Yeh, there's a reason they call it "playing possum". It actually works pretty well against our world's predators, but I don't think it would work so well in the Housepets! universe. Even the gargoyles aren't that naive.

If anyone remembers this there was a gargoyle in Petes temple (That we only saw once mind you) that stocked our friends while they were in there. So my hypothesis is this, because Pete has been turned human, that gargoyle and his friends are free to roam the woods as they see fit or perhaps find Zach. :?: :ugeek:

Just a small correction, Dragon and Pete turned MORTAL not exactly HUMAN, and since the cosmic nerds only used animals as avatars (Joel being turned into an animal) it would be more logical for them to be turned into animals as one would assume Rick would bring them back one day in some distant future and humans wouldn't work as well as pets/ferals. Everything else I do agree with though as I think that's what we are being led to believe.

Oh, so the cage was Keene's.

This is the type of stuff you would have to get used to if you were in a relationship with Zach, Jess. :D

Jess is probably confused weather to love the Gargoyle or Zach. This is why she fainted. She is not playing dead, her emotions just got the best of her.
This is normally the part where I get hurt...

I think it's high time for something (but nothing too bad) to happen to Keene, especially after the (Jata) wedding trick, his uppance really should come sooner than later. Maybe not totally eaten by the gargoyle, just thoroughly chewed. :twisted:
Now we don't know what a demigod would do. Yes, that may be the true span, but Kitsune could just tweak that for Pete and Dragon, just to see what happens.

So the cage is yours, Keene, to catch those gargoyles (couldn't Karishad still try to do that? :P)... Keene must be so really famous to be known by a creature of the woods. I love when Jessica talks in that way. ;) Oh, one of the gargoyles is there: and now, Keene? How can you open the cage? :? Call your bodyguard wolves! And Jessica fainted and it's playing dead, usual instinct of a possum. ;) Great funny end, well said, Zach. :D

I'm not sure if this is the right place to be saying it, but does anyone else feel like the comic is sliding into a jojo act-esque format. Like theres no way of knowing if all this Zach stuff will continue beyond this arc. But the way it feels to me right now is like this.

Act 1 is Peanut and Grape. Mostly focusing on their relationship and random eventures until some of the cosmic stuff starts happening more and leads into releasing Pete and dating tarot. Which allows for...

Act 2 which is King and Fox's story (while grape and peanut were still a decent part of all the "cosmic nerd" stuff it mostly revolved around him with them being like supporting cast) where King deals with cosmic suffering being thrown at him until he fights back with Fox to keep him grounded.

and now the conclusion of Act 2 leads into this act3 with Zach that comes from the first 2 acts which are now coming back to him. Making this basically the beginning of Act3 with Zach and Jess.

That's probably not whats happening, but that's what it feels like.

While it probably won't happen it does make sense as all those characters were tied to the cosmic game. Peanut and Grape as potential avatars, King and Baily actual avatars and now the Opener of Ways who couldn't be an avatar and avatar blocked Pete. So while a huge multi branching intermission taking arc probs won't happen... one can only hope!

Mostly just depends on how long this temple and its gargoyles (or the effects there of) stick around.
I was honestly a afraid the comic might suddenly lose its magic element when King's story was done. So I'm glad that magic plot lines will continue. And I feel as long as those continue something resembling all that act stuff at least slightly will be happening.
