Katherine sits awkwardly on the sofa accepting the hospitality of the family she has come to visit, seeking information about the climate on the outside of the ship. (This issue celebrates the vanquishing of a monster in our own time, on this day, 20th January 2021)
Lord Filius Anderson watches another of his Floating Asylum ships arrive at the docks of his castle in Krestovaya by the East Siberian Sea. His agents have abducted many deviants and enemy operatives, who had been cured by Katherine’s Bullet. The National Guard have chained the captives, who are forced to wait in a line, to board the ship.
Georges De Somme is aware that it won’t be long before Filius Anderson realises it is he who is funding the Katherine’s Bullet program. Georges has stopped attending functions and has barricaded himself into his mansion. There is a forcefield around the perimeter which prevents Amanojuko being able to teleport in. He is now trapped, along with his wife Kavita.
Filius Anderson has placed a bug into Colonel Merek’s mechanical index finger and has been monitoring her conversations. He is pleasantly surprised to learn that her prodigal mother, Inajda Rekaya has re appeared, and is in fact an undercover enemy agent.
Grace O’Malley interrogates the prisoner captured by Antun Rekaya and brought to her by Inajda Rekaya, who waits in the observation bay, desperate to find out why her husband, Eric’s body was stolen by this man and his cronies. (Stay safe everyone, look after each other.)
