One question Chuck. How many rounds have you got on you right now?

Let me tell you something, pendejo. You pull any of your crazy shit with us, you flash a piece out on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, stick it up your ass and pull the fucking trigger 'til it goes "click."

TL;DR: Chuck may have to improvise.

MSV is still fucked. Sure, Chuck and Aisel can probably take five or more to one on their own.

My question is: how many MSV are here vs. how many JUST Aegis?

Also, which "nametags" does MSV have on the ground besides Chucky Boy and Aisel?

And let's not forget that Agent Cannon is RIGHT FREAKIN' THERE. And Eric and Tona are still wild cards in this one.

THERE WILL BE BLOOD!

Handguns and low-profile vests so are not a match for assault rifles and SWAT gear... but first shot is sometimes all it takes to ruin coordination, morale, and unit effectiveness. One important question is how is the AEGIS presence organized and defending itself, and are they prepared for the downright unhinged, low-oversight, self-organizing tendencies of the MSV maniacs?

Another set of important questions is how much of this Eric knows about, how much warning did he have, what is he prepared for, what is he doing, and what are his objectives?

Heh, that's exactly what Alexander is saying in panel 4!

And yeah, MSV isn't going to go quietly, though "self-organizing" is a very diplomatic way of saying "goes off the reservation".

No spoilers here, but total fratricidal chaos is pretty much Eric's so-called "plan B". As for his objectives, that should be pretty obvious too--he wants what he can't have.

It is a diplomatic way of saying that, but it's also an analytic term for describing the particular command and control situation here. If your units are veterans working together to create emergent strategies from individually reacting to the conditions without needing orders, that's a method of organization which is less vulnerable to communications problems and decapitation strikes on the leadership. That kind of guerilla nastiness can be hard to predict and react to for those with a more organized command and control system.

Well, they got the villain monologuing...

Yes AC, Eric and Tona are wildcards, but we aren't really sure what Sonja's response will be. Yes, she's ready to marry Elliot, but it seems (to me) to be more a "marriage of mutual convenience" rather than a "marriage of love". Maerc is the ultimate chess-master, but chess is a game with very strict rules (although they are often manipulated for the best result, but they MUST be adhered to). KatyaSonja merely sees rules as mere silly words printed on paper.

I believe that Maerc is the type of psychopath that only sees people as chess pieces (tools in another word) that are manipulated at the whim pf the master. Does he love Sonja? Maybe, but in the way of perceiving her as the "Queen" - an incredibly powerful piece, but subordinate to the "King", and is often sacrificed in order to win the game. I'm not so sure Sonja loves Maerc, but is using him as a stepping-stone for greater power.

All that being said, the Queen can "mate" the King (especially when used with a "Bishop")...

We'll see how much of a "villain" Alexander is... but wait, maybe the monologue you refer to isn't his?

Thanks for the comment! heheh

Nowhere did I mention that the monologue was Alexander's; I said the villain...

Good job: Now I'm recalling old episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus, specifically the skits about The Bishop. :)

Ohhh my wordddd. Well Alexander shut up for a few minutes. I love Chuck's nonsensical enthusiasm in all things.

The code in the backdrop is really cool, and holy cripes.

Dang it that's a crotch shot, that guy isn't getting up.

Chuck goes for head shots; Aisel, who is a little rushed here, must console herself with blowing out jugular veins and femoral arteries.

If there's any out of character dialogue here or elsewhere, please drop me a PM.
