I can feel Flo doing due diligence here, removing objections to the shape this subplot will take before it ramps all the way up to high gear. “Sure, sabotage seems more sensible than going all the way into the cockpit and attacking Taro directly. But here’s why that won’t work. Darn, guess we’ll have to go with the more dramatically satisfying option, oh well.”

I appreciate Bandit’s last aside in panel 3. She’s never ever going to say that she misses Syr’Nj, not after how everything went down…but she can admit to missing tools that Syr’Nj sometimes provided her.

FB: “Okay, plan E: we wait for whatev’r’s causin’ this loud rumblin’, which is prob’ly an earthquake ‘r somethin’, t’ swallow it up.”
