And we take a flashback to the day before again, this time with Emily elaborating on her escape plan to Maria. Specifically, where she thinks Maria can go and be safe.

How about it though? This guy's been getting name-dropped a fair bit ever since Chapter 28, but how well do we know him? What kind of person is he really (and what is his reputation)? What do you make of this?

Like it literally says who it is right there in the comic panel.

"Why does everyone think of him first?" No. Blair Carver.

My apologies. I should have read that panel properly. Sorry for any offence caused. >.<

Your replies are rather blunt aren't they.

No they aren't, people just take it that way for some reason.

They're blunt that's why they take it that way

Carver's a cool dude. Even if he didn't owe Emily, I'm sure he'd do it because he's a nice guy.

I'm a little creeped out by the "And he'd never turn down a pretty girl. ... I'm sure you remember his reputation" bit. That sounds a bit like there may be an anticipated quid pro quo. Not that Maria would hesitate to disabuse him of that notion...

while that is a valid concern, this is a highschool, and he could have just as easily gotten a reputation for being a doormat whenever a pretty girl asks, or even always wanting to help one. frankly, given Emily's phrasing on this page, it's likely the latter.
Guest 16th Apr 2018, 12:50 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, that bit worried me as well. I've generally learnt to take phrases like "he'd never turn down a pretty girl" to be a warning sign— for starters, if somebody's a decent person, it shouldn't matter to them whether or not the person asking for help is "pretty"; and if a guy's willingness to help is linked explicitly to the person in need being a "pretty girl", it tends to raise questions about what they might be wanting in exchange.

And that comment being immediately linked to his "reputation" is also concerning— if it were "he'd never turn down a person in need", I wouldn't think anything of it, but as it's worded, it's setting off a whole lot of alarm bells I've had to learn over the years the hard way.

Hopefully it was just an awkward (slightly tasteless) joke on Emily's behalf.

Wondering what he owes Emily for? My impression from what we've been told is that he was a bit resentful she wouldn't come out with him when they broke up. I guess there's been a making up/some other event in between then and now?

He dumped her on prom night. He dumped her not long after they arrived at the prom if I understood correctly. I reckon that that in and of itself is enough for him to owe her a lot.

I really hope that his reason for dumping Emily on prom night is revealed in this chapter.

"Why does everybody think of him first?" I mean, it's not like there's a prominent reminder right in front of you.

(Though honestly, last flashback, Chase was the first person who came to mind as having a place "no one would think to look". Clearly a bad idea, but it did turn up.)
