    The unspeakable in pursuit of the uneatable …

    “Manu? Menu? MENU!!! Get me out’a here!” That is a most foreboding tell that Dult let slip. And of course Alice being her usual prickelly self. I can tell she really does love Philo. Just got to get over a few speed bumps.

    Poor Captain Eaton. We hardly knew you, and now you’re in the stew.

    Ooh! I smell exposition!

    Menu sounds ominous. I feel bad for the crew. They did sell the Blender out to Roddy, but it’s still not what I would have wanted. 🙁

      Well, the bribery episode in Chapter One was supposed to ease my guilt for their nameless deaths. Still, I am sorry about the crew. If it makes you feel better: Some of them had already been eaten by Gorgo and some escaped.

        Well, it’s like the red-shits in the opening scenes of Star Trek: TOS. It lets you in on the fact that the writer is serous and the stakes are high.

        Last night, I saw the episode of DS9 where a Vorta arranges the deaths of his entire unit of Jem’Hadar because he was running out of chemicals to control them with. It’s what happens to characters in Fiction.

    Typo alert: panel 1 should read “little opportunity *to* learn”

    But men of the cloth in this time in Britain were frequently the younger sons of nobility themselves! Perhaps Alice is playing herself down on purpose, she does seem that savvy. I await exposition in earnest.

      There’s Lesser Nobility (Gentry) and Regular Nobility and then there’s Peerage. In Regency England it would be a scandal for a Peer to marry someone from the Gentry, such as a the daughter of a poor, un-landed parson… but that’s a whole other story.

      • JJ says:

        This is true. Trying to keep all the layers of aristocracy and titles and ranks straight is quite the task!

    Ms Alice vs an ancient blasphamous lizard queen? I think I will decline to place a bet.
