Great, now I want to stop at Dairy Queen.

It is nice to see Ruby actually being sympathetic and grateful to Dillon again. It's a nice little flash of self-awareness on her part.

Although he probably shouldn't have tried showing Ruby deep-throating so early in things.

Yeah, it's nice to see that Ruby is no more perfect than the rest if the cast, but is at least smart enough to know when things ought to be better.

I suspect that "deep-throating" was a bit of Dillon hyperbole rather than a literal description of what he did. Otherwise, he's just applied freezing cold temperatures to the back of his throat, and he looks far too comfortable for me to believe that.

Nonetheless, that is definitely a video that Dillon doesn't want getting onto the interwebs when he's a famous serious ack-torr.

I suspect that Dillon is wrong about who Angel is on a date with.

That's a good point; Angel had that promise with Richie, if Giz is still running with that. It was supposed to be the night after the pet shop scene, but maybe it got deferred, or maybe Richie and Angel found an excuse for another. If Dillon bumps into Jerzy this evening, I could just see him saying "Oh, I assumed that you were the one with whom Angel was on a date" with unworthy but understandable pleasure.

I think that the comics are way out of synch at present, and Zii hasn't been around in Ma3 for a while anyway. I reckon that her absence is purely a plot contrivance, because she'd have cluttered up this scene just gone (which had plenty of characters present as it was) and changed the tone of the conversation too much.

I love the fact that Dillon's the straight man in all this.

Very likely since Ramona abruptly corrects her statement.

At least this confirms that Angel is still in the yaoi club, but will offer no advice. Zii should have some words of wisdom, but I don't know how much she can impart if this volume is ending in 6 more strips.

I suspect that we'll get a cut away from the club soon, to set up more about the date.

Dillon the straight man? How can this be?!

Anyway, knowing this comic, whoever Angel's on a date with may well be left deliberately ambiguous so we keep talking about who it might be.

I don't think there's any ambiguity. It's probably Richie. She promised to go on a date with him and she wants to keep it a secret. Jerzy would probably be cool about it even if he knew, but Angel probably suspects that if the secret got out to Dillon he would definitely exploit it to try to undermine their relationship. Angel is quite paranoid.

The Richie date was for the night immediately after the pet shop encounters, though. And there's no reason why Angel wouldn't be on a date with Jerzy. And Giz might just have wanted Angel out of the way for this scene, to keep things simple.

On the other hand, Angel specifically wanted Jerzy not to know about the Richie date from the moment it was arranged. Paranoia? Rational doubt about Jerzy's uncertainty about their relationship? Who knows?

So, there's room for uncertainty here. We'll just have to wait and see.

True, but the date could've been postponed if Angel thought Ruby might spill the beans to Dillon.
