Wow.

That sounds more like Nudge than Tina's usual crew.
He had done a good job of covering his tracks, but that was to be expected. After all, one does not conspire to ruin a House and murder a queen and then just stand there waving and waiting patiently for retribution.

Well Nudge did lead the crew for years, not surprising if some of her rubbed off on the others.

Well... there's the possibility that we followed the right Daylla to the wrong universe...

If thats not the right Daylla then your left with who knows what.

But do we have the right Tina?
Does it ever occur to anyone else that maybe funhouses would not be a good place to live?

BAD Tina! No donut!

Actually this concern should be easy to address. If it's not the right Daylla she'll notice differences. The people around her, the items, the general structure of her life ("Wait a minute. Since when is my mother a redhead? Why is all the music on my phone now k-pop? And who's this guy who's President? Never heard of HIM before!"). And the people around her will notice changes too ("WOO, suddenly, Daylla's REALLY GOOD at Half-Life!"). And given the meta-dimensional nature of so many entities in the Wapsiverse, a different Daylla should be readily apparent. Heck, Tina herself might be able to see; I think Daylla's visiting her shop before, she might be able to tell at a glance if this is Daylla-1 or Daylla-248c.

Also, I'm still working on the theory that Daylla-1 wound up in that other universe because the Library wanted this problem with the Anchor fixed, and Daylla-2 freed, and pulled her there. I doubt the Library would make a mistake, putting her back in the right universe.

And they don't understand what happened? The technical details may be uncertain, but i thought Daylla had a good grasp on circumstances. Is she not telling what happened? Or is it just taking time for Castela to sort all this out?

Luci seems oddly enthusiastic over all this...

She's probably still in the "Oh, wow, the universe is bigger and more exciting than I had though!" stage of discovery. Learning that the things of myth and imagination are actually quite real, and that you're talking with them in person, must be a hell of a rush. We saw Amanda go through a somewhat similar reaction when Monica clued her in. Luci didn't even have to be dunked in a lake to get there. :)

Speaking of Monica... hmmm...

... uh oh. She owns an antique store, right? She and Jet have been going antique-collecting in Europe, right? They've been buying stuff and bringing it back to Minneapolis, right?

I've got a bad feeling about this. Parallel, semi-congruent world-lines. Cross-timeline leakage.

Bloody hell. Did she find a Maxoni Patented Galvanic Buggy-Whip? and maybe other of the stuff he was tinkering with?!?

Monica... DO NOT CONNECT THAT APPARATUS TO A BATTERY! Put the Moebius-wound coil down carefully, and step back away from it!

And call MIB for a containment and clean-up. You may have your hands on something which would make the Chimera and the Calendar Machine look like popguns by comparison.

Already dealt with - it's in storage at B2.

If that's at B2, then what's at B3?

No, Buildings 3 through 5 were demolished when they ran the I-494 through Minnetonka. They renumbered the buildings after that with the new engine and tractor assembly plants across the freeway.

She'll visit San Fransokyo and ask when they painted the Azure Gateway red.

That's the same time the access tunnel from B2 to the rest was bricked off and turned into a workshop.
