Rather ant-climactic

Unless it doesn't work.

Second thought - has there been time travel involved in this?

That's why I'm going to wait until Monday, but if I was a betting man:

Kath and Atsali got the crystal from Bud - who probably knew that it was stored in Suzi's hammerspace - and are right now activating the portal at Mapimi - with the intent of transporting SDO and all five of them to some other location. Perhaps... the Library?

Ooh, I hear a penny dropping!

Interesting that Brandi is thought not to know code; I'd have expected her to pick up something in her lifetime. That might be a mistake.

Note that Bud said to Lily "You're dangerous! A real deal breaker!" I bet the 'deal breaker' was said to get through to Brandi - a clue for her that the Nu Gui had violated terms of the deal and could therefore be evicted - exorcised, etc. Trapped in a holodeck data crystal and sent packing to the Demon Realm, ah betcha.

Well, grats to all who expected SD Oduya to be mentally occupied by Buds sudden interruption. Honestly, I thought she'd recover a lot more quickly than this.
Now, we need only to sit back and watch - er, wait for - the fireworks.

Except, yesterday we saw Bud drop the crystal while they're all at Mesa Verde. Also, Mapimi is a radioactive crater. ;)

You know - yesterday's left hand/right hand "continuity error" is looking less like one today.

Bets on whose hand that is in Panel Three?"

"Miss Goodie-Goodie" is "sweet" Brandi, I guess. And that means "sweet" Brandi put the buffer crystal there.

I was comparing the plot to a subtle match between two chess masters, where we only saw part of the board, and didn't know how long into the game we were.

Now it seems the two chess masters are both Brandis. Way to externalize your internal conflicts, girl!

We've already seen the portals and crystals being used to store and separate beings. The two Anasazi, the buffer crystal, and the complex computer / Atsali's brain will now ...

... perform a long-prepared exorcism, leaving SDO on storage.

I'm impressed.

Or wrong. But then, I suspect, I'm likely to end up even more impressed. 8-)

Katherine's. Atsali says it in panel 2.

Yes, I believe that also. To me it looks like Brandi is standing inside one of the portals while Kath, and Lily activate the portal system to properly store Brandi and the evil spirit as two in the crystal. Atsali puts the crystal in place prior to that.

Let's see ...
  1. We have Atsali inserting the crystal into the portal mechanism in frame 2
  2. Kathryn activating some part of the portal mechanism in frame 3
  3. Looks like Bud using Pratt's hand to activate the portal mechanism in frame 6.
  4. I guess the real question is who is it in frame 7, Pratt or Brandi?
Got to wait till Monday. Again!

You got it right. Bud isn't to Lily about Lily. Bud is talking to the Succubus about the Succubus. The being that is going to be slip in two is Brandi and the Succubus. The empty data crystal that Brandi left at the Stargate so long ago which Lily found is going to be the Succubus's new home.

From yesterdays comment, "I would like to "poit" out that Bud has placed her fist through Susi's "Hammer Space", where the crystal spider gem (and the rubber chicken) were being kept. Having cleaved through the hollow space between Susi's more prominent topographical features and not her body mass, Bud's fist could "poit" out again --and not-- actually hurt Ms. Susi. or interfered with her vocal functions."

Well, at least I was slightly on the right track.

One is Kath's, one is Atsali's.

Oh, I do hope they didn't just put the wrong Brandi in that data crystal...
