    Well, it is less a deliberate project and more a random side effect, but as long as science gets done, sparks have roughly the same attitude toward their doom-bringing accidents as Scully form Brooklyn 99 toward his heart attacks: Mine are never that serious. I call 'em "oopsies".

    So, any guesses on what the Vozzler looks like now that he is fully on our plane?

    Mine range from "Dr Dim", to "Uncle Barry", to "no change".

    Well, he's an extra-planar entity. And if he were someone we recognize I think he would have told / been telling / will have told Higgs. i think he may take the form of Higgs since that's the one he can interact with currently.

    So it's pretty obvious Agatha's going to be marrying both of them, but I am kind of wondering what the exact arrangement is going to be, especially when it comes down to producing heirs.

    Is it going to be taking turns, giving Agatha multiple bodies, triple DNA splicing, or using mad science to make the boys carry the children?

    Obviously they'll use gestation vats so they can keep adventuring.

    "Pretty obvious"? That certainly might happen, but I wouldn't surprised if one of the guys somehow gets taken out of the running before the end of the plot.

    My money would be on an Agatha for each suitor, if it came to that...

    Ménage à trois and the first child is heir to their collective domaine regardless of the father?

    Since this is plain Girl Genius ( we have a seraglio for the other version), I'm putting my quatloos on having the beaus ( final number yet to be determined) drinking some kind of marker, then submitting their...um..."contestants" into an elaborate vat with a...ah...turkey baster. When the baby is born, it will then placed in a scanner which identifies the "fittest" father! For Science!

    Given how this keeps spinning further and further out, I am beginning to suspect most of us will suffer Reader Existence Failure before we get to that point, if we ever do.

    I love how Agatha it the only one looking exited.
    Everyone else seems either nervous or ready to fight.
    And the Vozzler is doing that thing where you give a really scary first impression.
    Mostly obscured shadowy, not entirely human looking figure with glowy eyes?
    That's either a fight or the friendliest guy ever.
    My quatloos are on the latter.

    My theory on that (which isn't of my own invention, I just can't remember where I originally read it), is that iin the original outline Tarvek was originally supposed to die somehow, but that the Professors have decided to keep him and so introduced Martellus to take his place (and his death).

    Vozzler was already a friendly guy to begin with, so an easy bet.

    I'm figuring we're about due for two weeks of paper dolls, a Heterodyne Play, and a short bit with Othar, before we get the full revelation.

    The Vlozzer would have said something, however. He already foresaw the end of the world while in the cetacean's belly and warned the Sparks so that they could avoid it. In this case, there was little reason to believe it would have ended badly.

    It's true that, in general, it makes you wonder why reality still exists. Maybe Sparks have some extreme fugue state that triggers to reverse their actions and avoid annihilation of reality by their own hands (like how one Heterodyne destroyed his machines when they summoned otherworldly creatures). Maybe that's a side result of having top sparks like Klaus or Albia or Voltaire, or minions like Violetta. From this point of view, Gil looks like a worrisome successor... But then, his daddy did too summon horrible interdimensional monstrosities.

    He's going to look like Wooster, justified by "extradimensional vibrations at the event horizon of his 4-dimensional lattice" or some such explanation that doesn't explain anything.

    Turns out he's Agatha's son with Gil and Tarvek (yes, both) displaced in time.

    Could always be faked. Who knows how many „They are beginning to trust me. Soon I will be freed and then I will conquer THE WORLD! MUHAHAHAHA!“ scenes we missed on account of him being imperceivable.

    Nah, not really, it's just, the whole presentation of the cliffhanger is so... “a wild villain appears” that even if he hadn't been presented as a nice guy I would've bet against it.
    The villain thing, not him being friendly.

    Vozzler is Lucrezia, copy #N for large N. You read it here first.

    More likely those are the "I'm surprised by what just happened" eyes rather than the "I'm pure evil and about to start killing" eyes.

    In fact, since we know time travel is on the table and Karl is out of sync with time, Karl may be one of the party's future selves.

    Most Sparks aren't talented enough. Of the ones who are, most of them don't have the resources/education to create a world-killing machine. The story is focusing on the absolute top tier Sparks, and I've always had the impression that they are strong Sparks even by that standard.

    Additionally, this world-ending machine is being created by several of said Sparks working together. That never happens.
