Glyph may take the hit himself. He could have said that he will be late to react with magic.

i thought the same.

my guess is on Glyph taking hit on himself on some part of body like leg/hand or sth.

Hes too much of a hero, he will probably take it in the chest and die

I sense a reason for Maytag + company to go on a quest to find the thin man approaching.

hmmm.  I guess we could presume that Fata casts some illusion which misleads it but my real prediction...

ITS GONNA HIT BERN AND KILL HER!!!!

...Then they'll have to resurrect her (remembering that a hit to the chest allows for resurrection).
Damn!  Then again. If healing magick works really quickly then I guess they could have her heart beating easily within a minute rather than wait until they can resurrect her.

...Maytag is gonna murder 'em.

damn, u were right charles! Lets hope she can be healed/res'ed or is it bad ending of flipside ;)

btw my thought was nearly the same "How will May react?" in my opinion they are dead, dead as hell.

I totally hate it when Bern dies! >:( >:(

At least Suspiria/Glyph should be f'ing up the opposition by next panel I hope.

Is it really possible to ressurect people?
Suspiria boyfriend stayed dead after all :(
Now we can assume that Danzig will tell May he can save Bern quickly if she will agree to become an experiment of the Thin Man and will go willingly with Bern to his laboratory, or maybe Suspiria will be able to heal her even if it could be only temporary and Bern will need new heart or something, without limbs you can live without heart not.
So maybe they will need a trip to that city finally.
If the best character of Flipside comic which I admire would be dead for real then just I would be very sad.

They can't repair damage to the brain and Kinn's head was turned into mush.  But with Bern, we simply have damage to the heart, so resurrection is possible provided they either preserve the body until they can do it, or they do it before decay really starts to set in.

As before, if they can heal her quick enough, that might also do the trick since they'd be repairing hear heart before the blood loss to her brain persisted for too long.

Glyph and Suspira are both high-level sorcerers, Although Glyph is injured and we've seen before that injury appears to also drain spirit essence and Suspira might not have the knowledge to perform a resurrection. I suspect it'll be preservation of the body until they get to Eschelon (which will be a couple more days away unless Moss has some special short-cut).

Still thinking that Maytag might loose it and use that magick sword to cut them up.  She was holding it from memory, but maybe she'll just drop in grief.  Hard to say as she was fairly well collected when Bern was last dying until she found out a resurrection wasn't possible.

yes, resurrection IS possible, look here at book zero:
http://www.flipsidecomics.com/comic/book0/fs15pg03.html

Seraph after deadly stab in cheast was resurrected.

Bern was hitted in heart so its possible to res her (probably - if the hit isnt some kind of freakish magic spell that makes it u cant be res'ed)

Ah, I forgot about that scene.
Thanks for reminder.
Now May chopping that slave guy head off with Bern's sword would be a nice development :-*

Well she's not dead yet. She'll be alive for a few seconds, and Suspiria is right there to heal her.

not to mention its not said that the thorns are deadly. it could be a source of spiritual power where he uses her life to try to bargain with the others and it can be used to kill in a few split seconds

We're assuming the thorn can be removed. Considering all those spikes on the side, I don't think that will be easy.

Also, in the case of Mary's victims, they couldn't be raised because the poison continues to eat away at the body even after death, leaving nothing TO raise.

I know, it still looks kinda odd.
Maybe it's the pose, a tad too straight for someone who just jumped to the side.

I'm kind of relieved :D

Still I totally forgot that Fata could create instant illusions and mess a bit Escher plan.

While I'm glad that Fata's illusion saved Bern, I doubt that was her intention.

Escher and Danzig are truly screwed now the surprise round is over.

I can think of a few. Just off the top of my head....

1.) Merely an intellectual experiment on the true efficacy of her illusions.

2.) A field test of a projection in a combat situation.

3.) Reassurance that her "illusions are perfect" and May saw through them earlier for some other reason.

There are many more reasons that are totally selfish. Still it was a wise decision to try it now. If it works (and it did), Fata gets to be a hero. If it fails, Fata loses nothing, as Bern isn't really "a friend" and Fata has no attachment to her. Plus it was an honest "best effort" so failure wouldn't have meant offending her current group of associates, and Escher would still be trying to kill/subdue her in any event.

I'm surprised they've left these two guys awake and ungaged, although Escher appears capable of casting silently so presuming Danzig's a caster I'd say he's just as capable.

I'm sure the group is more powerful than them but it only takes some unexpected, surprise attack and they're down another member.

Half wondering if Moss will actually kill these two.  Heck, I guess the Phalanx members should actually be looking to take these two in... or execute them if their authority and procedures go that far :-\

Fata's solid illusion services: 2000 gold (or certain amounts of the Thin Man's research)

Moss' loyalty: High tolerance for vulgarity and verbal abuse (as well as rare research/ artifacts).

Crest's sarcasm: Priceless. For everything else there's Maytag.

She's everywhere you want to be.

ROFL! I was going to comment on Crest in today's page, but there's no way I can top this.

The smart thing to do now would be crush their heads into powder.  They are either willfully associating with the Thin Man and thus a complete monster, or they've been brainwashed, which based on what we've heard, makes them irreparably lobotomized by the standards of the setting.  Both of them are extremely dangerous, and there is no way to turn them over to the authorities that wouldn't require going through Melter, the Thin Man, and god knows what else.

They'll probably just use the sleeping powder on them, which they could easily be lying about to some degree.

Nice guess on the sleeping powder.

But why the heck didn't they use a portal earlier rather than risk their lives? *shrug*  I guess the Phalanx felt it was their duty to capture/eliminate them or something.

...So they're just going to leave the carriage parked there? *LOL*

I'm guessing that Glyph "borrowed" that portal from the bath, and to prevent magical interference in redirecting the location back to Phalanx HQ had to either capture and kill Escher and Danzig or get out of the warp box.

The carriage isn't the only loose end here, we haven't seen Melter leave yet. I especially like the way Suspira shared all our sentiments by requesting Danzig's smile be forcibly removed.
