Hmm, Nathan came in the hopes of sex, but looks like Dillon got him off his back. For now anyway.

Nice to see Dillon bucking up and telling Nathan off. But the way I see it, trying to shake people like Nathan is like scraping gum off your shoe. A bit sticky, and satisfying to do, but you can never get all of it off all at once. Some of it still sticks around, and it takes a while to get every last bit of it off.

Even if he wasn't Dillon's agent, we'd probably see more of him. He'll be back, but who knows what he'll do, or maybe who he'll do, when he shows up again.

So, who is this and what have they done with Dillon?

Woo, Dillon's IQ is remaining above room temperature for several panels at a stretch! And yes, Nathan is looking even camper in this strip than last.

One does wonder how Nathan ever got on in business, though, given how silly his behaviour is. I guess that lust gets to him really, really badly. Or maybe he'll start dropping serious threats of his own next strip. If he doesn't pull something out of the hat, this appearance will look fairly pointless - but he's being slow to get around to it.

I think Dillion is too angry with himself at the moment that even cheap flattery can't get through the self loathing.


Dillion just wants to do they one thing he knows he is good at which is Acting and not be bothered by anything else.

I'll admit - I'm impressed with how Dillon handled the situation.

Now if only he could do the same when Matt tries to get into his pants.

Why do I now get the feeling that Nathan is going to find some kind of loophole in Dillon's and Amber's contracts?

*nods in approval* Well done, Dillon. Keep that forward momentum.

Also, I dunno if this is weird, but... I find Dillon oddly attractive when he's being serious. But... no time otherwise. *shrug* I think the drama turns me off.

Agreed. Dillon won this round and it looks like he knows enough about his own leverage to do that, but if Nathan doesn't exploit some loophole I could see him striking back some other way.

What if he ends up divorcing his wife? Dillon would no longer be able to use that as leverage to make that sleazeball back off.

That would certainly be a dangerous plot twist for Dillon and Amber. Realistically, it would seem unlikely to happen in the near future, though; Nathan is clearly determined to keep his adventures secret from his wife, and would probably find divorce terribly inconvenient at best. Whatever he really thinks of her, he's the sort to fear being taken for half of everything he owns, and she might well be in a position to blow a few of his secrets (sexual or business) wide open.

If she did find anything out, though, and start making his life hell, he might well decide to spread the pain around. I can imagine her being the sort to make a little trouble of her own for Nathan's bits on the side, too.

Rebecca is Dillon's agent. Nathan is a producer.

Seriously though...."Some people might say such discretion should be rewarded"

I dunno if he was just putting out a line in hope the Dillon would bite, or if he really believes that Dillon should reward him with sex for not telling anyone about how he abused his power to manipulate two people into living out his personal sex fantasy.
