That's true. I agree there's a chance that Angel's date is Richie - hence why I said there was room for ambiguity. Remember how in Mà3 we were left in the dark about who it was Roxie was talking to in bed? Same setup here, but without any princess dresses. :p

Actually, Ruby more or less promised not to blab to Dillon - and while Angel is a bit paranoid, Ruby is kind of transparently honest. Anyway, if Angel is worried about Dillon sneaking on her to Jerzy, why should delaying the date make her feel safer?

If Angel is out with Richie, my guess would be that it's a second or later date, because Angel-as-girl can't resist indulging her hetero-woman side. But who knows? It's entirely possible that Angel is just out with Jerzy.

Either way, the only immediate consequence of Angel's date is that xe is currently Sir/Lady Not-Appearing-in-this-Strip.

Speaking of ambiguity I'm starting to wonder if this volume is really going to bookend with Ruby in bed with Andy. There's only 5 strips to go and I think there's some other advice she'll be receiving and then the date itself. It all seems a bit rushed. Maybe it will be Dillon in bed with Julian or Amber with Ray.

Nothing is certain - but when we were about this many strips away from the end of volume 6 of Ma3, I was thinking (and saying) "They'll never wrap that up in the time, we're probably going to end the volume with the band hitting the stage". Giz and Dave do funny things with pacing sometimes.

However, sure, there's nothing I'd stake much money on. I'm currently envisaging some ambiguous stuff between Dillon and Julian, echoing the first three panels on strip #151, followed by Ruby snuggling up to a happily stunned-looking Andy, thus echoing the fourth panel. But me typing that obviously makes it very unlikely. We could as easily get, say, some uncomfortable conversational stuff involving Dillon and Amber, followed by a shock reveal of Ray in bed with Julian... Or a completely different assortment of cast members.

And in any case, strip #150 only echoed strip #1 verbally ("Dilly... never change"/"Something's gotta change here" - which nicely exemplified the crucial difference between Amber and Ruby), so all we should be expecting is something akin to that. Maybe it'll just be Andy taking Ruby to a patisserie called "The Next Level", and her saying "Okay... I can breathe again now".

As a person who generally does not like ruby, I confess to really liking her in this strip, especially the last panel.

Also, poor Julian. He must really be crushing on Dillon if a video of Dillon sucking a popsicle can get him off all night...
