Yorick asking for a real job.

355 telling him that she's putting her life on the line for him, and "that's a good deal for YOU." is something. There's some ... resentment? maybe? Behind the intense loyalty and competency. What does she want for her?

Hero finally confessing to killing Mike.

The beating at the end. Yeesh.

If the manpocalypse comes and all the music we have left is acapella Radiohead, I'll be glad to be gone...

I didn’t mention Nora before but I was thinking about her yesterday.

also seeing a Costco-esque store repurposed for group living tickled a fun part of my brain.

I just want to point out how creepy and tone-deaf Kimberly comes off when she corners Christine and "offers" to take her future not-yet-born baby. Maybe she clings to the idea of men so much because she never entirely learned how to interact with women?

I too appreciated Hero's confession and what it portends. Graphic novel spoilers:

This long, slow tracing of Hero's descent into the Amazon cult feels a lot more plausible and satisfying than the fait accomplit we're first presented with in the comics. Having Nora there as well, not buying it but going along with it for the sake of survival and Mac's safety, really sharpens the picture of an unhealthy community that's likely to only get worse.

I'm afraid Sam and Hero are definitely headed for splitsville; I just hope Sam survives the inevitable breakup and gets exile rather than execution.
