Never imagined this thought would arise, yet: Zii looks earnestly innocent and sweet in panel 3.
Gary seems to be remaining impressively neutral; an intriguing role reversal as Gary is the calmer one, while Zii is becoming increasingly flustered.
Got to give credit to Lita for being one hell of a sassy cat without having to do or "say" anything. :))

Guess we'll see what happens with the underwear wrestling match later; seriously hoping it just becomes a wrestling bout, without any salacious follow-up. Maura being *converted* to bicuriosity because of Lynn capitalising on the former being so starstruck, is quite disconcerting; DiDi's cluelessness could lead to either an unintentionally serious fight or the sexual entanglement, but I'm getting ahead of the current ambiguity.

Ah, okay, Giz and Dave playing at cliffhangers.

But please remember this β€”
A kiss is just a kiss,
A sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply,
As time goes by.


Hey, we have Gary playing Victor to DiDi’s Rick and Zii’s Ilsa! Cool. That makes Lynn into Louis, I guess (and Yuki into Sam). So DiDi and Lynn do have a bautiful friendship lined up...

Much like The Terror in the new Tick episodes, I’m beginning to feel a beat here.

Tragically, Zii doesn't realize that Gary is Lita's pet. That boy's her territory, marked and claimed.

This could get brutal. ;)

Remember that Amber implied that she had never had a boyfriend, and was unsure quite how to go about her new relationship.

These people have ... odd ... life experiences.

Indeed, I'm making a similar face as I wait for this to fall apart.

Even Lita's looking at them lik: " Will you two just bang already?"

Zii has gone on record by stating that Lita is mostly his now, seeing as how much time she spends nearer him (or in his room) than with her. Not very surprising since he seems to be her caretaker/responsible hooman. Remember: cat's are our overlords.

Cliffhanger after cliffhanger. Naughty naughty creative team. The suspense is building. X_X :YMDAYDREAM: :-ss ~X(

I still appreciate Gary not taking advantage of the situation... or being clueless to Zii's libidometer... and taking the high road by respecting the acknowledged relationship that Zii & Didi have. TBH, I also think that if the role of Gary was anyone else other than Gary that Zii would have been banging them relentlessly right now. Even with Lita staring on. Perhaps there's some sort of graduated result of Zii treating Gary as she has and only now realize he's interesting? Perhaps something more meaningful even then what she shared with Erik? It isn't respect for the SGR that is getting her acting like a nervous teenager; she's proved her overall techniques are better (at least versus Didi... all that matters it seems).

I see Lita silently being the one nonchalantly telling Zii something akin to "Well it's about time you noticed this one. Took you long enough. Come on, now. Get shagging." If my theory holds, she knew all along.

Yes, I do think that's it. Zii's reaction in panel 4 confirms it.

Looks like you were right all along about Lita. B-)

Actually, we have already seen Zii like this. When she started dating Eric, she was constantly flustered, nervous and fidgety -- and her behavior around him (or even when she was alone but happened to think of him) was exactly that of a timorous, insecure 13-year-old virgin.

This ... will not gonna happen.

As sad as I am it won't, it feel weird for me. Those two have too much history behind them, beside of that, I feel there's still the Kiley case to close...
