    Sabotaging by painting multiple gates doors... someone is getting tricky.

    But took me a bit of "I must be missing something" until I realized what he did.

    I quite agree. And more reason for MitD to go with Xykon's method of choosing a door. And we now know what Xykon's boots do. Not terribly useful against the OotS.

    So no footprints to the other painted doors — MitD either has long arms or flight?

    Did anyone else notice that the MiTD has at least three limbs of different levels across its body?

    And I swear we just saw him grow taller than Medium in the latter panels...

    That's what loyal teammates do for each other, isn't it? You know, when they're not busy getting new haircuts.

    Is that what he did?

    I'm so proud of him. It. Them.
    When in doubt, set it on fire, right?

    If they'd gone with Redcloak's method, the sabotage would be much easier to spot.

    Got kind of upset with MitD for sabotaging the search, then realized it's literally saves the universe by doing so, with considerable risk.

    Pretty Heroic.

    iiinteresting. MITD is intentionally sabotauging the path. Perhaps some of Mr. Siffy rubbed off on him?

    Neat and subtle. I spent some time wondering why MitD did six movements to make a single cross before it hit me.

    Perhaps I'm not keeping up properly. I thought maybe MitD was just a little... dim... but how do we know he's screwing up the search pattern intentionally?

    I'm sure you guys probably already noticed this, but the 'What is the MitD' crowd might want to note that he didn't leave any tracks in the snow... levitation ability?

    But much more useful for not needing to draw spindly little skeleton feet in the new style.

    (They just looked too small...)

    Awwww, the MitD is downright cute in this.

    Also, Giant, the font at that small size in the beginning makes the double L in "I'll" look like a single bolded L. Just FYI, if that knowledge helps in any way.

    Actually, I don't know if MitD did it on purpose or just forgot the right door. I mean, "oh snap, I don't know which one it is, guess I'm gonna paint three or four to get it right". But if it's on purpose, the million dollar question is: WHY?

    Also, "bitter fruit of eternal despair". Greyview is a philosopher indeed.

    Always remember, kids! When dealing with Xykon, the question is not "does Xykon know?" The question is, does Xykon care?

    Without knowing what's behind the doors, it seems like MitD would just be randomly narrowing the already-random search space and hastening the point where Team Evil has to start over.

    But then, MitD also picked today's door.../tinfoilhat

    Don't necessarily need an arm to hold an umbrella. It does become more likely, though.

    Compare panel 6 to the last panel. He painted 4 doors with Xs

    I'm sorry, what was it people were saying about a flawed search pattern? One that could be exploited?
