Ok, ok, Sabrina, I apologize. Honest, ma'm. Now I know you are playing a part so that Pete doesn't suspect.
Because thanks to your plan to send King to Heaven, now he's back with the spiritual maturity, the strength, the knowledge, and the fate to turn the tide.
Well played, ma'm. *bows*
Just don't hurt Bailey too much. Please?

Yeah but Gavrillo Princip only did that by pure luck, considering the planned assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand failed miserably.

Point is, it's a common figure of speech. It doesn't literally (or even figuratively) imply the ability to change the past.

And King, how could involve himself with Bahamut! Even though I've read tenfold different threads on the arcs I still don't have an adequate explanation! IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE SO WHY AM I SO INVOLVED?!

It's just a joke. Putting the emphasis on a different word in the sentence can sometimes change the connotation subtly, but in this case Bahamut's just being silly.
King said, "Are you literally saying, "The power was inside you all along"?"
And if you read King's statement literally, you could take it to mean King is saying the power is inside Bahamut, though that is not what he meant.
So Bahamut replies facetiously, "No, the power was inside YOU all along." To emphasize that the power is in King.
King already knew that was what Bahamut meant and may be missing the joke entirely.
So he replies, "That's the same thing I said but with a different inflection."
Now Bahamut's just going to continue the joke for the joke's sake.
"No, that's the same thing I said but with a DIFFERENT inflection." To emphasize that the inflection was different, which is totally pointless and purely for the humor. :lol:

Nope!!
I think I got it, Bahamut gave King a watch that looks like his fate so King could find Pete make a deal to trade his wife back for the "watch" (tricking him), and getting his life back the way he had it before minus the Pete issue.
That's a new watch/loop thing. It is, in no way, a golden pocket watch like King had before.

Fair enough. Heh, wouldn't it be a kicker if he's always had the key to defeating them actually in his hand?

My guess is that, as Argent suggested, he is holding his fate... King's, I mean, not Joel's.

Plot Twist: Bahamut IS Bailey

1 It's no big deal for a demigod to be in two places at once.
2 Bailey took the news that her husband used to be human very well. Perhaps too well.
3 The term beloved.

Yeah, only you can change the course of the things, King, and now you've got the motivation. :) Great last gift and lesson, Bahamut, finally you've given your help. ;) King is back, ready to ruin the concluding of your plans, Pete! :D You won't expect that, Bailey won't be yours for still long time, and you're still who deserves to lost this perverse cosmic game. :P Sabrina did a great sneaky move to help King, but, what a pain to finally get it... :P

Thats just........oh....ohhhhhhh! Of course! Heck she sould be an angel in disguise assigned to be born into Fox's family to live a mortal life and eventually encounter the destined game ender (King) but didnt expect falling in love and marrying him and in a last minute of pity offered herself to the game thus making the situation a whole lot more complicated and emotional for King.

A bit out there but anythings possible.

I'm secretly hoping that when Fox returns to Earth, two new female dogs just happen to move into the neighbourhood and have a crush on Fox. ;)

The last panel here made me think that Pete and Dragon are brother and sister. Because only siblings would tease each other and react like that. XD
