Flashbacks are in black and white. I established that back on page 1, remember? Rudy’s wristband however transcends monochrome. ^_^

I realize this a tricky sort of scene and something that may hit home pretty hard for some of my readers. My goal going into this page was to come up with both an absurdly over-the-top reaction (the father) and a painfully real reaction (the mother) and use both in the same context. I hoped I could portray this without detracting from the tongue-in-cheek humor of the one comment and the shudder-inducing gravity of the other. Did I succeed?

And for those of you wondering where the explanation for Gavin and Maria is: keep your pants on, I’m getting to it. The actual reason is fairly simple, but it does require a little setup. You’ll know the answer next week. I promise. ^_^

Looks like no-one bothered to read the character info files. =p

as crazy as it sounds, the "need a old priest and a young priest" reaction I have actually seen before. It's just rare and a sort of bad funny.

Why would they need "an old priest and a young priest"?

It's a reference to the Exorcist movies, where the excorism team had an experienced exorcist and an apprentice exorcist. It was my understanding that formulation wasn't strictly required, it just happened to be the team sent. (Though two apprentices would never constitute the team, for obvious reasons.)

I like how Rudy's bracelet looks in black and white.

The bracelet transcends time and space. The bracelet is not just a memory. The bracelet is my favorite character.
