Ugh Zii wins again...
But the whole joke here is that she isn't sure herself whether she's won or lost!

Didi will be monogamous. Once she's latched onto her lover, she has proven to be quite faithful time and time again. It is only when someone new or better comes along and
the 'previous model' doesn't provide her with an orgasm/satisfaction does she drop him/her like a hot potato. She might dump them rudely or unceremoniously, even forget their name, but she does at least make sure there is a break made.
Yep... Well, DiDi has always had a weird moral code of sorts, though she tended to forget about it at the high points of her orgasm obsession. However, it's always been shallow and shaky. She acts like someone who's been told about morality, and told that it's important, but who's never really got her head around the underlying principles.
Zii on the other hand, I feel, will be the one to screw up her relationship with Didi. Whether it is the obvious reason of Zii not being able to keep her hands off of those she finds attractive/sexy or because of her deep-seated discomfort of commitment, she is the weakest link.
Agreed. This strip may well be a throwaway gag, but it establishes one thing about Zii; she's still Zii,
prone to being ruled by her hormones and impulses. She's showing less character development than DiDi here, and hence is more likely to screw things up.

Oh well, in any case, this clinches it: Zii/DiDi is endgame. Sucks to be Gary.
There's still a whole volume to go - 150 strips. And this comic sometimes engages in very compressed plotting. And the whole Zii/Gary thing is hanging there on the wall like Chekhov's gun, and was heavily signposted only recently. I'm not betting on any endgame position until we're much, much closer to the last strip.

I think Sonya is the self-insertion as the dark-haired bass player, can't say anything as to the personality or sexuality as I don't know Giz very well except by her art.
Yep. Well, I wouldn't assume that she's a self-insertion character, but when someone shares hair colour and style, general build, and instrument of choice, there's blindingly obviously a little bit of self-identification likely to be involved. I think that Giz may even have said as much.
