and only one Ethetian soul caught in the portal... the Nu Gui. I still think Bud and Brandi are free and clear of being sucked into storage... Tepoz said he tried to give them back their personalities after they were separated from the Chimera... their souls, the part of them that would register them with the system, are long gone.

I see that the line calling Lilly dangerous and a real deal breaker and asking her if she has ever seen a being torn in half makes sense. She is both dangerous and a real deal breaker to the Nui Gui. By working the Stargate she helps remove the SucuBITCH from poor Brandi which is breaking the deal she made with Brandi by tearing a being in half. She was giving a clever good bye message to the evil spirit that tricked its way into not only Brandi, but Bud and Jin as well since they both have had nightmares about her.

But is it in some way related to Bia?

Or at least a Titan connection?

We have yet to have been exposed to the reasons behind Bia's actions and her goals in manipulating Shelly's life the way she has.

We know Phix has been severely influenced, even perhaps to the point of being controlled by the Titans. Charon is acting as guardian/liege-man to Bia after that second shock wave (which might have been related to the Anasazi extinction, not the Lanthis Chimera. Note the comment about, "no souls to gather." That would be more applicable to the storage fiasco trapping them all.) And that would strongly link Tsillah to the Titans through her family connections and make her actions suspect.

Timotheus: one step at a time, my friend.

Wapsi Square is a little like eating an elephant.

You can only do it one bite at a time.

There's still one more shoe to drop: The favours Bud was going to call in.

I somehow doubt she was speaking of the butcher only, so there must be something else going on. Wildly: Perhaps something explaining how she knew about the spider crystal?

Brandi is a sweetie, too. It's too bad Wapsi Square provides so few dating opportunities for the modern golem.

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.
Today, Bud does another "continuity error". She uses her right hand to grab Lily's wrist in panel 4, and her left hand to plug it into the wall in panel 6. Maybe Bud never obeys the law of continuity. (Or maybe her right hand handed Lily's hand over to her left hand in panel 5.) I don't know. It's a mystery.

Nah... no continuity error... she just grabbed with the right and transferred to the left to apply Lily's hand to the panel... easier to manage.

Assuming this op is the major fix for Brandi, it may be awhile before she knows what her real interests in relationships are. The succubus has been messing with her constantly for a few bak'tuns now, and she's really only been able to stay friends with indestructible people up until now.

Bud gets our sympathies more because she's been proactive in seeking affection, but has always been teased, confused and stymied by a certain SDO. While she'll be free of that interference going forward, Bud knows she's not an ordinary girl. She doesn't want to pursue anybody who can't keep up with her, and she may have to look far afield to find anyone close to Epimetheus's capacities.

Bud is not a chess player, she is an actor. A mature Heavy Metal actor. The type that can barge in dripping with blood, ranting about killing, ripping beings in half, and punching through walls while never actually being out of control. The only thing missing is the black leather and metal spikes.

Neither Bud nor Brandi do it for me. My favorite for a long time was Jin. Now that she's no longer an all powerful golem, however, not so much. Still, she does have money and can poit ... But she's taken. Now, I think a fling with Phix would be nice. At least she can exercise self control. Well, with humans anyway. Tina's nice but too far out of the land of the living.

On another topic, Poor Lily, Yet again she was certain she was about to be torn to pieces. If she were alive, she would have succumbed to heart failure by now, between Phix and Bud. I wonder if vampires have better bladder control than humans?

Bud's a sweetheart, and a wonderful study in contrasts... the combination of age-old sophistication and power on the one hand, and the wistful innocence of a gentle young girl who was never given the opportunity to grow up normally on the other.

Speculation; Once Nu Gui is firmly in the Spider Crystal, then what?

Give it to Brandi to decide.
Paperweight on Katherine's office desk.
If it isn't already golem made and golem tough, plasma cook or compress it beyond the point of stargate interface at least.
Throw it into the sun.
Employ the mind [with proper safeguards] as a new library assistant.
