Okay. So it’s a terrible plan. But at least they’re out of their chairs. That’s progress, at least, but you’ll have to stay tuned to learn whether it leads them anywhere better or not.
As is often the case, Sam’s mouth is his greatest weapon. It’s just as often his biggest weakness, but he employs it pretty skillfully here to get the job done. Now… who’s ready to finally leave this basement? Come back Monday when Triceraman and White Jade go on the offensive!
I hope no one has forgotten Jun Yu, the reason these two are on the hunt in the first place. Seems like Sam did for a minute. But the young man’s death will never be far from his mind for long and the guilt will follow him the rest of his days. Helping it immensely would be finding the man responsible, Triceralord. Helping that immensely would be getting out of those chairs…
I’m not sure what deranged, masochistic side of me it comes from, but I really enjoy writing dialogue for anyone berating Sam. It’s kind of freeing to let a character tell our hero he’s acting like an idiot for behaving exactly as I would in some particular situation. I know Sam’s faults as well as I know my own, which means I know how to cut him to the quick. But it’s something we all need to hear once in a while, no?
You know what just hit me? This whole mess is like Three’s Company on the set of a Saw movie. So it’s probably time to end Sam’s torture before any lasting damage is done to him or to the strip. Now he just needs someone to kick him out of his stupor…
I’m no yoga expert by any means, but I believe this particular position Lily’s attempting is known as “Downward Cobra Triangle,” and not, in fact, the relatively similar “Downward Hipster Infidelity.” A common mistake for beginners.
This is almost too painful to watch. For our sake – and for Sam’s – I have to hope Preston hangs up the phone soon. Especially if those two are in the middle of what they appear to be in the middle of. The universe cannot be so cruel to our hero, can it?
(The answer? Yes. Yes it can.)
