I see, but that would be Debbie :P

but Debbie "wins" in a way as she is heard but not seen, while Felicia is not seen nor we see her speech bubble SO FAR

one of the earliest examples of that is in Columbo, where his wife is always mentioned but was never seen, closest was one time we see her car departing in the scene

there was a "Mrs Columbo" but because she was so young and other discrepancies and so much protest, it was changed eventually in same season that there was no connection with Columbo and name was changed to just Kate Callahan

they should have made the series Miss Columbo and made her Columbo's niece instead :-? only lasted 13 episodes

So she may go for dozens of strips just looking smug and saying nothing, until Angel does something unacceptable - finding out that Dillon slept with Jerzy, say, and throwing a public screaming fit at both of them. Then, pow, verbal leg-sweep, Angel goes down.

The flaw with that is that someone can call pot and kettle on Zii because of how she cheated on Erik.

I assume that the joke is that we won't.

The art is in the timing. Either Zii makes Angel look a howling hypocrite for something Angel just said, or Zii dumps Angel in it with Jerzy and runs away giggling.

It's not about who is or isn't really a good or bad person; it's about tactical advantage. Like life generally, really.
