    We already know she's nuts. What that would show is that she has the survival instincts of a squirrel sugared up and on a vodka bender while huffing paint and popping shrooms.

    Where Gilgamesh went for grand threats of utter destruction, she presented chillingly calm and very focused 'friendly warning'.

    Rather than an empty sounding threat, followed by death ray.
    I suspect if Dupree had stabbed Tarvek in a dark alley on mainland Europe, Agatha might have used the death ray.

    As it is, Gil is watching. The Queen is keeping tabs on her. And there are diplomats waiting for her in a nearby room. So Agatha chose a subtle threat instead.

    That would explain the scar.

    Agatha already should have had a grudge against Bang, if she was informed of Zulenna's death. Bang almost got killed there, too, by von Pinn.

    The problem with Bang here may be that she wasn't expecting Agatha to be normal, while she's used to dealing with Gil and Klaus, who let her do whatever she wants and treat horrid crimes like juvenile pranks. And she also could not have foreseen that Gil is just another servant of Agatha, and won't lift a finger to stop her, even when Agatha threatens his own (unless something happens next strip).
    The problem with Bang is that she's used to being considered useful, and it hadn't even occurred to her that Agatha might consider her dangerous instead. The Wulfenbachs treat her like a weapon of mass destruction and deploy her to areas where her particular blend of psychotic violence is useful,, but she made an enemy of Agatha through her treatment of Zulenna and the Circus, and Agatha also has indirectly heard what Bang did to her Chief Minion and his landship crew and almost definitely has put that particular 2 and 2 together. Basically, Bang needed a lesson in manners.

    This little backlash, and really compared to some of the things Bang's done it's pretty reasonable, is to remind Bang that Agatha's circle of friends is to be taken seriously and that her casual violence is not going to be tolerated when it threatens Agatha's court, of which Tarvek is absolutely a member at this point. Prince "How Dare You" is off the table for now.

    Also Bang and is no longer under the direct protection of the Empire which was a sweet deal for her and she's seeing what happens to independent pirates when they cross powerful rulers.

    Can't help but wonder how that little meeting would have gone if Agatha hadn't said her piece in the previous episode, given what we know about Bang and Zeetha...

    From today's page I love how Zeetha really considers Bang at least as a fun acquaintance if not a friend. Once she learns, who Bang is, things will get very emotional.

    So, what are the chances Dupree joins Agatha's entourage as they travel around the world and grows more and more frustrated at her inability to subtly kill Zeetha while she simultaneously bonds with her until she finally snaps and admits the truth?

    Woohoo, looks like they made the Kickstarter goal! Only three days left, so I'm not sure we'll be getting any of the stretch rewards, but it looks like the game will be happening.

    Well, Zeetha does hang around the Jaegers, so some allowances must be made in calibration.

    That would be hilarious, but I don't quite see Bang in that.

    Wasnt there those time panels from all the way back early on where gil and agatha are looking at dupree and calling her a maniac or something? Basically, it suggested they were not on good terms any longer. Its entirely possibly bang is going to do something bad that turns even gil against her. So the warning is currently under consideration, but eventually her desire for revenge will take over.

    Yeah it looks like Bang is having to reconsider her plans after Agatha's gentle warning. But Zeetha's "let's go spar someplace" is a gift, Bang is just going to have to pick the time and place carefully. Doing a public challenge for a battle to the death probably won't work now as Agatha would almost certainly pull a favor from Alba to neutralize any such thing. Or take out Bang herself figuring it's better to apologize than risk Zeetha's death, particularly since a warning has already been given.

    This Page. Agatha seems to know Bang and Gil calling Bang a maniac isn't that strange. He just seems irritated about what she is doing than anything else.

    Also, keep in mind that those two windows in time happened in reverse order to what we see chronologically. That is, Gil called Bang a maniac after she pointed a gun at the lot of them, even though that technically only happened afterwards.

    Now i wonder if they're going through the time windows to track Bang back to her lair. And then to follow her crew and find where they met Zeetha. And then to track her back to Skifander...
    I'm pretty much the opposite of concise. If I fail to get to the point, please ask me and I'm happy to (attempt to) clarify.

    That's a pretty interesting theory, I like it. Strange that Zeetha isn't in the windows if that's the case, but that would also give her plot immunity and erase all the tension between her and Bang. That'd be no fun.

    It's a nice idea, but it assumes that Bang intercepted Zeetha's ship at or near Skifander. Then again, I guess you could track her ship after/before the piracy.

    I see it more like Bang keeps shadowing the gang looking for revenge on Zeetha and winds up helping and getting helped a lot until she comes to the rescue because only she gets to kill Zeetha Skifander!

    They aren't going to leave England any time soon. They still have to confront Steelgarter and Mawda (or whoever has the Lantern now), have the big showdown with Albia, as well as solve the problem of England's sinking. And yes, I know that Agatha doesn't particularly care about that last one, she's still gonna solve it before she leaves.
