    so it seems like he got hit in the eye. Still that shows its Cypher’s got better aim then I was expecting. It seems like Jason now has his sister backing him up on his team. I wonder if his prevous second jumped ship

  2. xzeddx

    Nice crack shot

  3. Brunhidden

    he might want to get that eye looked at before he becomes my mirror

  4. Josh.C

    @e_voyager: For a minute there I thought it was Alice that was with him.

    But no red eyes. I’m surprised, were has his sister been hiding till then?

    Then again, if they both have the same affliction…….

  5. LavaBat

    Oh great. It’s him again.

  6. LavaBat

    And he shot someone completely innocent instead of someone he simply hates. *gets a torture rack, a car battery and some wire*

  7. e_voyager

    well in his defense he did lose his depth prediction suddenly. Maggie looking so much like her mother probably didn’t help his aim much either

  8. Ryan Schneider

    How long is that blade? He will likely need a neurosurgeon in the next 10 minutes.

  9. nikolai60

    I’m gonna agree, from the length of that knife, it went deeper than just the socket, he’s gonna start having a lot of problems that I doubt even glitter can fix.

    Still, the loss of depth perception should significantly ease the gap in armaments. Having said that, shouldn’t security get involved at some point (or have they been ordered away)?

  10. Sulucamas

    RAAAAAD. 😀

    So Jason has carte blanche to kill anyone while he’s still on the show, and Scout Fenirel has a standing order for Daisy’s execution, and they both begrudge Daisy for their terrible childhoods, and all Daisy’s armed with are some flowery throwing knives and a secret-vampire on a leash??
    …wait, that actually doesn’t sound too bad!

    @Ryan Schneider: Well, considering how thickheaded Jason is, it’s possible the knife missed his brain entirely. 😛

    @nikolai60: Maybe the music drowned out the scream and the gunshot?

  11. Novawolf7

    Maybe this is all part of the planned entertainment.

    @Sulucamas LOL to his Jason’s brain, he should have aimed a little lower 😉

  12. Novawolf7

    ** to “hit” that is.

  13. Josh.C

    Sort of ironic that Crazy Old Fenirel’s kids are shooting up Daisy’s kids.

    It torch has been passed on as well as the crazy.

  14. nikolai60

    Something I just thought of, he woulda had to deputize her or something to get her help instead of Alice right? QUICK FIND SOMEONE ARMED AND DEPUTIZE THEM!

  15. Josh.C

    @nikolai60: Or it could be the other way around if she took her mothers title.

    This could be scout business again overlapping with the show rules again. I could even believe Murphy might have signed off on it.

  16. nikolai60

    @Josh.C Quite possibly, though without having been explicitly told otherwise it’s also possible for them to see an implied option (whether they know better or not) and carry through as a ‘field decision’ which can then be defended later, especially if it keeps the alive. Basically, yes Murphy plans and executes putting his sister in the field, but they take that as a nod to call in their own outside help. Plus they ALSO have a scout they can ask for help if needed *wink wink*

    It took me a moment of staring to realize that wasn’t some freaky eye-patch Jason was wearing. Regardless, if that thing has ruptured the globe of the eye, which it seems to be the case, I doubt he’ll have depth perception ever again, unless they can regrow small organs in this setting.
    There’s only one way I could see his eyeball surviving in tact, and that’s due to the fact that the bottom bone of the eyesocket is designed to be thin and breakable allowing the eye to move out of the way of minor impacts. Yet…. That’s more for blunt objects…. and this was a blade… on a throwing stick…. and it’s sitting pretty firmly…yeaaah I’m pretty sure there’s no biological way that eyeball survived.
    Leaving the flower IN might be the only thing keeping him from bleeding out right now, if it’s holding pressure on some ruptured blood vessels…

  18. Shad

    Also is it me or do Daisy’s eyes look borderline red in the first panel? I know she’s got the glasses on, but they just seem redder than usual…

  19. e_voyager

    @Shad yeah they can we regrow small organs. It was mentioned in one of the side channels as to why gold I was not replaced due to it there being genetic defect with him. I think it was the same one in which they discuss the difference between Daisy cybernetic leg in Meridian exosuit pants

  20. Novawolf7

    Is it just me, or does the blood around Jason’s eye look black?

  21. The_Rippy_One

    Welp, she isn’t in Scout gear, so she is not engaged as a Scout persona, I’d assume. The way Daisy had to put on Areal to take possession of the WD kids.

  22. Dove

    *Does* Jason have carte blanche to murder anyone he comes across? I’m pretty sure he only gets a pass on any of his fellow contestants…if they’re currently filming an episode or doing a contest. Which, uh, they aren’t right now – or at least, if they are, it’s certainly going to be news to Daisy and Jigsaw.

    I’m also pretty sure that the Gators-In-Charge are gonna be displeased at Jason shooting what amounts to a random bystander, no matter which way this shakes out – it makes people feel less safe around the cast, and much less safe going into the little city that the show has built.

    (I’m also gonna be surprised if this doesn’t turn out to just be Jason and his damned vendetta again, rather than anything else. Possibly facilitated by someone else, sure – but still, at the core, Jason and his damned vendetta. It’ll be kind of a pleased-surprised, though! I’ll be downright shocked, though, if Jason-and-his-damned-vendetta aren’t in play at ALL, though.)

  23. Josh.C

    @The_Rippy_One: I was kind of wondering about that too.

    Then again, each of the styles seems to be slightly different for each scout. This could simply be the style that planet of scout wears. It does sound like the scouts had quite a bit of work to do to put themselves back in actions. That could also mean cosmetic changes to the image of certain scouts as well.

    I guess we’ll really see when she introduces herself. But the weapon she’s has there looks pretty much one would expect of a scout. Is that a trademark weapon of her mothers?

  24. Starcat5

    @The_Rippy_One : You sure about that? The underclothing are in her planet’s colors (I presume). She is wearing a replica of her mother’s coat, the original of which Jason is currently sporting. And most damning of all, she is wearing a skirt. A utili-skirt (like a utili-kilt, but without the gender confusion), but a skirt none the less. I hate to say it, but it looks like she is in full uniform here.

  25. nikolai60

    @Johnette wut?

  26. e_voyager

    I believe it was was once said that any and all crimes committed during the course of the show will be forgivien should the contested them so not only survive the show the complete the show itself. so no pardon if you quit the show part way through

  27. Jigsaw Forte

    @Nik: Sorry, spam filter’s been acting up.

  28. hariman

    Huh. There IS an actual line through a person’s brain from behind each to the back of the skull that a thin, straight object (like an arrow or thing throwing knife) can pass through without causing brain damage. It’s a straight line and neurosurgeons get nervous about it, because one slip and you’re poking a brain.

    Also, for some reason, I now have the image of Jason being the “Ace of Bass”, and a former member of Daisy’s band “The Galaxy Girl Scouts”, who hates Daisy for leaving the band to pursue a career in science, which also included Jason’s Mother and the other scouts.

    What? That’s nowhere near the craziest theory I’ve ever come up with for a work of fiction.

  29. The_Rippy_One

    @Hariman: I can see that. Somehow, it makes Jason look less…not nuts, but less unusual. Like, imagining him as a failed rockstar actually fits his personality…”And this is for bailing on us on SNL!” *BANG* “And this is for upstaging me at the Grammy’s on my solo!” *BANG*

    That probably says awful things about society’s preconceptions about rockstars…

  30. hariman

    @The Rippy One: Well, I picture those shots missing, given Jason’s aim right now.

    And the whole idea comes from a song I heard a long time ago that I think is called “The Ace of Spades.”

    But, yeah. Rockstars have a “crazy as hell” rep, probably because of how many of them were crazy as hell.
