This can't be a prelude to anything good...

At the very least, Sandra isn't going to be flayed alive by Zoe.

I'd also like to see the comic return to Marie. See how the 'Easy/Eva Way' is treating her.

Not sure how I feel about this one (yet), though I doubt anything too serious will happen to her.

Anyhoo, judging from Domenico's expression in panel 3, he's clearly been down this road before. And it seems Tatiana keeps chloroform handy to enact 37-B (whatever that entails) at a moment's notice. That's some serious devotion. there.

And Zoé's still angry... *sigh* I really would like to see her go back to being level-headed again. Things might go smoother for both of them if she did. Either that, or Sandra needs to lay off the booze at least for the time being.

Ok, Definitely I didn't expect this. I was thinking that Sandra would go to Marie, she would introduce her to Eva and then Zoe would counterattack once she found out.

Now I don't know what to think, this 37-B contingency plan threw me out of the loop...

Lets see:
For this plan to have a code, it means that Domenico, Zoe and Tatyana have used it before... But to use it on an angry Sandra is not worth it, unless they know something...
Maybe Zoe knows already that Eva is behind the Marie situation and she is planning a counterattack...
Or maybe it's just to decide how are they going to handle Sandra without losing her...
Or maybe is to toss her on the next flight to Montreal... well, anything can happen :-?

Are we on the 2-minute warning of this comic? this is an extended volume but we don't know how many strips is that extension.

Well there's probably some ethical concerns about this, but who knows what was in the contract Sandra signed. Domenico didn't have any problems flying Sandra to a tropical island while she was drunk.

Yeah, no, I'm pretty sure this is extremely illegal no matter what she signed. But, I mean, it's a comic, so what are ya gonna do?

Also, I completely did not see that one coming at all.

No. A contingency plan is frequently something which you hope never to use.

Can't help wondering if Contingency plan 37-B is "chloroform a model who is is threatening to leave the agency" what contingency plans 1-A to 37 A are supposed to be for.

And at least that level of planning does provide some evidence to suggest that the agency is a lot more organised than people have been speculating recently.

dmra: Another question is: How often have models threatened to leave? :-\

Tatiana's clearly done this often enough to become fond of it and comes prepared just in case she gets another chance. So how many times has this happened and how many models have walked away from the agency due to Zoé's temperament?

Eh ... I'm not sure that's Tatiana's reason for saying that. Sure, that's one interpretation, but another is "Tatiana just likes doing anything that hurts Sandra."

The whole chloroforming Sandra makes this agency crowd feel a bit like an Adam West era Batman gang of super villains to me. Not only does it take away any kind of moral authority they might have had over the likes of Eva or Eloise but I'm not sure they've really thought plan 37-b through. I can't help wondering for instance what they're thinking of doing when Sandra wakes up. Perhaps the Pacific island they went to before has some sort of volcanic lair they can hide her at.

People are sweating the small stuff again...
