    Hey, at least she's using her sneakiness for a good cause.

    Return of the 'dark and edgy' Resistance armour. Yay!

    And I laughed too. Nice to see Haley doing stuff like this.

    I like it. I wonder if Tarquin will take Elan to see the gladiator games?

    Just notice how Tarquin referees to Haley as Elan's 'woman' (yes I'm slooow).

    Something seriously freaked out Mrs. Tarquin #10, she appeared to be flying out of that room in panel 10.

    I hadn't anticipated this. This could get exciting... and dangerous if she gets caught. What happened to waiting 3 days for Tarquin to spill his info?

    I don't know, actually they ARE already on a sidequest. And the order is split up once again. In some way I wish they would just reunite soon and continue with the plot. You know, OOTS tends to get lost in sidequests of sidequests of sidequests and the order scattered around the place - which wouldn't be a bad thing per se but when you have to wait several days or even a week for the next update, it can make you itchy and fuzzy, if you know what I mean.

    Then again, Rich said he has outlined the main story arc already entirely, which means there is a definite end. So every sidequest he adds in between does somehow lengthen the lifespan of the comic. And I think we all agree that this is something positive

    Personally I hope Tarqin will do something incredibly evil and Elan won't be able to rationalize it away this time.
    But I have no expectations that he'll face the truth.

    Why is it so hard for some people to accept that maybe their parents aren't of the highest moral caliber?

    Wow, Haley! CG for the win!

    And I kind of hope we get to see a duo adventure for Haley and V tri adventure for Haley, V, and Blackwing. They mesh well together, and it should be fun.

    Mmmm, this should be a lot of fun. Of course there will be the inevitable being caught and seeing how Tarquin reacts...and Elan's reaction to said reaction should be a lot of fun.

    Ah Elan, I hope your goodness will keep him going through the reveal about his Father. And is this an indication that V is working over to a good alignment a little? Why do the math otherwise? A great stip as always.

    Is it possible to recover from a hangover that fast? I thought they were supposed to last a while...

    I love how this ends, as if V had come up with the same plan on her own. I briefly forgot that Haley and V are old friends, but in light of that fact, it makes sense for them to be ready for a sudden duo adventure.

    Speculation: Tarquin sent his forces to #10's nation, as he said; they were ordered to attack the Free City of Doom, as we speculated, but given special commands to reverse this and save it. Tarquin agreed to tell #10 the password to get the reinforcements to save her city, in exchange for an unwilling marriage.

    Also, the Free City of Doom sent her as an ambassador because they knew this would happen.

    Edit: Roc Ness: Hangovers are mitigated by not being dehydrated. We didn't see Haley drink much water, but she could have.

    Haley's hangover didn't seem too bad. She woke up groggy and apparently has a headache, but nothing else.
