So the student has become the master. Will there be a name change to Marie on the Rocks?

Ingrid's text was very amusing. At least it doesn't look like Marie will wake up in Rio.

The "twins" dance with each other? Interesting...

Adrienne and Adrianne do the creepy twins thing scarily well, don't they?

Well, I guess that Marie got away safer from an evening of unwise drinking and partying with half-naked men than she might have. I'd guess that Eva may well have issued some "hands off" warnings. She'll want her new weapon polished and gleaming in its scabbard, for now.

Ingrid is yet another person who might have the worldly good sense to warn Marie that she's being used, but that'd probably be too easy.

Yeah, all things considered ending up throwing up in her own bathroom is a pretty good outcome.

At the moment, "badly" is how they'd get together. They're young and confused. The whole point of their plot strands is clearly working through that, so that any relationship between them would be based in clarity of vision.

Kinda feels like this is going too far. Up until now it was ridiculous over the top cartoonish villainy. But now a teen was pressured into getting drunk and partying with men. I do hope nothing happened.

I'm pretty sure that Marie is of legal drinking age in any European country. Which is not to say that getting that blitzed is anything other than unwise and dangerous, but this strip isn't depicting Hideous Corruption Of A Minor. And the fact that we're seeing her calling Ralph on her own big white telephone, rather than waking up naked in a strange bed, says that she's survived this with nothing worse than a comedy hangover.

And Eva, cartoon villainy and all, was very likely watching Marie's back all evening. She wants a weapon to use against Zoé, not a ruined kid for the evulz.

... I dunno. I guess I'll wait and see.
Now that I think about it, I don't remember Alex and Marie's age being stated anywhere. I'll go re-read past pages. For some reason I though they were 17.

Legal drinking age in France is apparently 16 years for wine and beer, 18 years for spirits. So if she's under 18 (likely at a guess), that cocktail glass may indicate a technical infraction.

Hardly. Sandra can still out drink her, but she's still in training.
