Oh I can see what going to happen a mile away. It will either be:
1. James doesn't believe him
2. James does believe him, Gary goes to ask Tracy out, and discovers James and Tracy are back together
or
3. James doesn't believe him, shenanigans ensue, James finally believes him, Gary goes to ask Tracy out, and discovers James and Tracy are back together because Gary isn't allowed to be happy.

If James and Tracy are back together and not bothering Gary, then Gary can be happy with the rest of his harem.

That's impressive thinking for Gary.

Gary decides the best solution is honesty? At this point it isn't so much character development as it is Gary has been replaced by a replicant.
Gary has always been intelligent, but far too willing to just do as he is told, no matter how stupid that is. He's finally learnt to put himself first.

Right. And with Gary’s sudden surge of maturity, I think he knows that and is working on that basis here.

Once upon a time, losing a chance with a hot girl would have hurt Gary bad. Now — meh, it just makes his diary management easier.

I am very impressed with Gary here. I guess there wasn't a grapefruit inside James's gift after all.

Gary shouldn't spill Tracy's secret about her cam-show. That would be in character for him to blurt out on accident, but it would be wrong. COnsidering he's got his 'serious hat' on, I think he'll be focused. I'm not sure how James will react to the big reveal. But take it off like a band-aid Gary, one quick rip and deal with it. How to get help him to come to grips with his emerging bisexuality... well, there's Matt.

It would be interesting to see if Gary actually goes back to Tracy with the intent of trying to reconcile James/Tracy. Or, if he's going to try to score with Tracy Or, if he's going to try to be her next boyfriend.

Echoing @Spidrift, I am really interested in seeing Yuki's reaction to ZIi/Didi and Sonya leaving the band... and the reasons why. I also am hoping she will try laying claim again to Gary, asking him out to rekindle their romance now that she is (somewhat) over her phobia.

I don't consider Gary losing a shot at Tracy to be a bad thing. Considering her part in the whole mess with James, Gary would be better off if Tracy and James got back together leaving him in peace. There are other women he could get with.

The only other women that Gary could get with right now (barring some contrived plot twist) is Peggy or Yuki and even though I really want Gary and Peggy to become serious I just don't see it happening.

You could bring back Chanelle as an out of nowhere closer for Gary.

They did leave her arc hanging in null space.

Chanelle had an arc? Last I remember, she was only there to take part in a threesome with Gary and Amber (and left soon after her porn buddies showed up).

In regards to the update - just when I think James can't say anything more cringe worthy; he opens his mouth (was I the only one whose skin crawled when he talked about his mouth watering at the prospect of having dinner with Gary?)

My prediction on where this leads - Gary is honest about what happened, James doesn't believe him (because no way a fruit wrapped around his junk would feel that amazing) and insists Gary show him how it was done to prove what he says is legit.
Please, don't come to me expecting me to fix your problems.

Ah, yes, the grapefruit! A fascinating food fruit! One of its many intriguing qualities, is its ability to intensify or diminish the effects of some medicines.
So, could Gary be trying to impress James with his healthy status? There's only one way to find out- read on gentle reader, read on! :-?

The environment has been good to Gary, that's why he didn't grow a spine, but i guess James and Tracy's shenanigans (culminating with James' mouth in Gary's penis) where enough for Gary to say "That's it!!!", grow a spine, and even come clean.

Also, for those who had doubts: Gary is straight.
That's what i do... i drink and i know things...

TBH, being with Tracy is not a good ending, she has shown to be as crazy as her boyfriend.

Also, since when liking grapefruits makes you a vegan? /:)

Chanelle has only ever served as a foil for Amber. One can believe that she has a personality in her own right, but we’ve never seen much of it.

Mind you, a bonus strip about this ditzy-but-hard-boiled porn star and her confusion on encountering the geeky chaos of the Ma3 world might be amusing.

I think that’s trying too hard to be offended. It seems to me like a relatively innocuous compliment.

It doesn’t. But serving grapefruit on its own does look a bit minimalist, so I’d read James’s comment as a sign of understandable confusion at seeing just this on his plate, and scrabbling for an explanation. (He presumably knows that Gary isn’t actually vegan if he just thinks for a second, because he had dinner with him and Tracy just twenty-four hours ago.)

Am I the only one who starts dinner with the fruit?
