    Well... crap. I suppose this is what will force them into the rift? Also, prospects look pretty bad for Belkar.

    I'm really starting to dislike Tarquin more and more lately.

    Aww, f***.

    I guess it makes sense from Tarquin's point of view, Elan isn't the *main* main character, it's Roy's quest, so Elan killing Tarquin is a bit of a sub plot compared to the fact that the whole quest started with Roy on a mission to complete the Blood Oath. If everybody died, Elan would be the *main* main character I guess?

    Surprising twist. Into the rift then?

    I guess Haley and Elan will not split the party, but follow the fearless leader.

    "Careful. You're starting to sound like Nale."

    That line gave me a chill. And made me want to punch Tarquin in the face... more than I usually do, that is.

    Well, up to this point I liked Tarquin, thinking he was an effective supervillain. But this is just pathetic. He is damaging his own chances of survival by trying to eliminate the group that is trying to save the world, dropping him to the level of more your run of the mill can't see the big picture kind of villain. Can't really say I like this decision.

    My guess is that the Order will jump into the gate, we have a few round-up comics and that ends the arc.

    So does that mean Tarquin was up to this point in de-Nale denial about Elan's role in the party.?

    Unexpected, interesting, and worrysome. Durkon's down there, Roy's a smart cookie, V is due back vaugely soon (depends on how long they spent talking about the family and such), and I don't see Belkar contributing to this fight. That means, by my own personal superstitions, Belkar is gonna save the day.
