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.
IIRC, the 'magic' of the grapefruit requires that the recipient can't smell the grapefruit or know that he is actually being grapefruited. Hence why the strawberries and the blindfold the first time from Amber's advice to Gary.


There's a video you can look it up with the volume low or your headphones on if minors are within earshot.
I suppose there are kinkier fetishes that a person could get into, being knowledgeable and aroused at the prospect of a grapefruiting, so YMMV on the 'magic' part.

If James gets too offended, he could always seek some guidance.

Well, kudos to Gary's quick thinking: he can reveal the truth to James, while leaving an option with Tracy still open - though, in spite of some common interests and decent first impressions, I don't think even Gary would want to date Tracy; however, another possibility is that Gary is merely planning to reconcile the couple, so they will just leave him alone, as he has had enough experience with "drama-sexuals" to know that he cannot escape their warpath without providing a more appealing, or at least distracting, option.
It might seem a bit selfish of Gary to *repair* such an unhealthy, codependent relationship, yet it really isn't his problem, and James and Tracy have imposed enough, so I can't fault Gary if he is planning to lead them both back to their happy little delusion.
In any event, it is a rather "in character" way for Gary to reveal the grapefruit truth to James, since it also prevents Tracy from feeling embarrassment. Also, James is stupid... Goes without saying, but said it anyway!
I think it's less keep Tracy an option and more of a way he plans to get them back together, maybe helping James get over his being an idiot.

Such progress! Really hoping Gary doesn't hit a wall soon.

I don’t know about hitting a wall, but if Gary suddenly turns into a confident social genius, it’ll strain my credulity. A bit of character development is fine and maybe long overdue, but a total character rewrite, just because we’re in volume-the-last, would be unconvincing. At most, he ought to have to learn to use his new powers best.

Oh, I'm not saying it can't happen - I'm just saying James wouldn't believe Gary and demand he prove it.

And, now that the next page is up, I can safely say...called it. :ymsigh:

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

Even if Gary were a vegan, James should realize that's not a full meal.

Tracy's disappointment in panel three is kind of heartbreaking. :( Despite all else, I wanna hug here and say "There, there." :ymhug:
