It's time we talked our differences over in a professional manner: Live talkshow television style. I'll make sure there's alot of chairs for Keene to throw around.

Oh so that’s where it is. So yeah it was Milton who moved it. But why? Did he just think of it as a nice decoration or did he know something? Also Yay time to sort of move forward on this plot hopefully.

Is "backyard" in a figurative sense meaning the woods that they presumably may own?
or did they move it to their actual back yard after Pete escaped?

I'm thinking they own the woods as well.

Edit: The more important thing is why did Mr. Milton move it and where did he Move it from?

I'm guessing from the blasted ruins of Babylon? I mean it's in the name of the community, I wouldn't be surprised if the ferrets try to hang on something for the lols :)

I doubt it as that would mean Mr. Milton moved two Temples and Dragon didn't know hers was moved. Its possible however that they actually shared a temple so it would technically be both of theirs.

My guess would be that the "To Be Continued!" is supposed to be a reference to something or other.

Rick, my awesome-sense is sensing something in this dialogue.......... are you finally starting to build toward the payoff that's been left hanging for a long time? Oh, I hope so. Elements that I predicted would cross paths are beginning to do so. But something tells me that that fox and Keene will be unleashing catastrophe on the world before long........... :? .

okay, how small is Karishad and/or how big are the ferrets? because their sizes seem closer than they should be. unless Kari's standing further back in panels 1 and 4.

Given Rick's comment on the comic, I'd wager the arc's over.

Also, there are people in the comments who want Karishad as a pet. They're crazy. = P

This arc will also sorta-tie into the one at the end of the year.

I just wanted to get some more Peanut/Grape in before that

I see. I assume you mean the end of the COMIC year, not the ACTUAL one.

I just happen to feel that this epic cosmic game/Mesopotamian legend/doomsday prophecy thing has been going on WAY too long.

Precisely. It also allows for a time skip with what these guys are doing so Rick can move onto other plots in the meantime. Besides, I doubt we need to know all the details, just what's been put into motion. An example of Rick taking an arc too long would be the money sharks arc in my opinion, but only because it did feel drawn-out and not because of the characters.

I actually wanna see what lies ahead for Karishad more now that i seen this, but not as badly as Grape and Peanut, honestly. And Finger Traps! :O

Thank god it will only be a few months till the the Cosmic Nerd plot moves forward somewhat. I know I'm in an extreme minority here (like 1-5% of the fandom at most) but I actually find that part of the comic to be the most interesting and want to see it move forward more then incrementally once or twice a year.
