I agree Umber, some bad english there.

the original
"And... you might the person we're looking for, Maytag...!"

shouldn't it be
"And... you might just be the person we're looking for, Maytag...!

No, it's actually
"And... you might sleep with the person we're looking for, Maytag...!"

(This could be a fun game for a day or two.)

Maytag! The only one who can enter your dark cell. ;P

This page certainly raised a lot more questions than answers.

We get signal you might the person we're looking for great justice!

I'm thinking this "Dark Cell" might be that endless doorway.  Sounds like the issue withis is feelings.  I guess Crest passed some of the testing as well until he got to that image of Maytag and Bern hanging.

But damn! The truth about the world!  :'(

Walk away slowly Maytag... very slowly

May was actually trying to use the Jedi mind trick, but didn't quite manage to get her to say "not be"
At least she got her so say "person" instead of "droids" though....

Also, they're using the 'cute and innocent' girl trick to get May to help them. Critical Damage!

How do we know that this girl isn't an illusion as well?
I find this whole storyline rather uncomfortable to read as both reality and fantasy is hard to tell which is which.
I got 99 problems but a nymphomaniac jester girl ain't one.

Her mere mention that the guy in the spa was just an illusion leads me to believe she's being toyed with.  I can't see why Twin1 would bother talking to it and not dismissing it if that was the case.  Also sounds strange that she's not referring to Glyph as himself... Almost like she doesn't even know he's there, let alone what happened to him.

you might deflower the person we're looking for
you might feed yourself to the person we're looking for
you might stalk the person we're looking for
you might date rape the person we're looking for
you might throw a brick at the person we're looking for
you might stab the person we're looking for

HAHA the possibilities are endless!

If these guys are good guys and their illusions are just friendly little tests, they sure suck at making it seem like they have good intentions.

I wonder what happened to Glyph, though?  And Bern.

Since it talked back (and talked about their plans and stuff), it's probably another person under the illusion. And if this strip might be taken as a random clue: http://www.flipsidecomics.com/comic.php?i=894 it was probably Danzig illusion-ed up to look like Glyph... or maybe he was seeing/speaking through the illusion somehow.

Good spot, I didn't even think about the intermission with her calling him "Sir"

Certainly sounds like Danzig unless Glyph really is part of their group and has some sort of status as well *shrug*

"We're trying to uncover the truth about the world!"

Or, to put it another way...

"SCIENCE!"

Seeing this newest page and "Regina" behaviour in the end I rather started to worry about Bern and other situation.
May don't be fooled!

That view in the second to last panel - Do we need more hints on the non Reginaness of this person?

Maytag and Regina were really close friends, but no more than tat. Maytag affirmed that here: http://www.flipsidecomics.com/comic/book0/fs26pg30.html

hmmm, that page and THIS ONE are worrysome.

See, it doesn't make sense that Maytag would have any reason to need more recovery time than the others.  I also recall someone else saying that Bern wouldn't leave Maytag's side in such a circumstance and I tend to agree.

I'm really starting to wonder if they've read her mind about her developing feelings for Regina and are putting her to another test.  Just seems odd that the normally shy Regina would be so comfortable with hugging Maytag while she was naked (and to boot, looks like Maytag's boobs have come out in those last panels.

But then again, maybe Danzig's crew are quite liberal and if she's since had some experience with intimacy she may have moved past much of it.

The whole thing is still quite odd but then Regina was a little odd (hurting herself to get a boy's attention, etc) and now she's claiming to be part of a very odd crew.

I think Regina was aware of May's feelings and wants to play on them to get her into the "Dark Cell"

Well, I guess Regina would have already heard the story about Maytag's arm from Bern.  But Maytag does have a new Jester Suit since Regina and Moss last saw her so I guess they might make a side comment on that if and when they see her later.

I'm still trying to work out how the Chapter title comes into this.  Best I got is that it relates to how these nut-jobs believe in the truth/lie of the world.  I'm guessing they all think they're simply shadows of their real selves in this world or something.

The only place I can think they get this from is somewhere in the breaking of seals.  We've only seen a breaking of the 2nd seal (well she didn't break it, but we saw the work) and then there's the Genius in Inverness breaking her seals and somehow being a natural.

That genius seems to be almost an informed ability.  Considering that for all her genius she just got KO'd by an essence-sucking technique when she simply could have dropped a meteor on their heads...

Sure, drop it into a building they're in.  And then use some torrent to put out the fire and escape.  Or gusts of wind to hurl away all the rubble.
