Nale and Sabine have a lover's quarrel.
- Panel 1
Haley covers her mouth in shock.
Elan: You're... you're fixed!
- Panel 2
Nale: Well, I would have given myself better than even odds that I could make him stab her at least once before snapping out of it, but I still know a good distraction when I see it.
Nale: Villain exits, stage right.
Nale exits, stage right.
- Panel 3
Thog: all thog's family back together!
Nale: Oh. Right. Forgot about this part.
Sabine: Nale, you treacherous weasel!
- Panel 4
Sabine: I saw you and that skank back in the restaurant, and now here you are in her room.
Sabine: And that dress she's wearing!
Nale: No, baby. It's not what you think!
Sabine: I think it's exactly what I think!
- Panel 5
Sabine: You were going to kill her.
Nale: I was going to KILL her.
- Panel 6
Nale: Wait... you already knew I wasn't trying to sleep with her?
Sabine: Come on, I wasn't born last century.
Sabine: You're carrying our sacrificial dagger and you somehow coaxed her into a a dress with clear access to her sternum. Of course you were planning on killing her.
- Panel 7
Sabine: What steams my cheese is that you knew I wanted to kill the girl myself, and went behind my back!
Sabine: And don't give me that, "First alone, first killed," line, either, because the elf is sitting all alone in the bar right now.
- Panel 8
Nale: Sabine, baby, you've got it all wrong...
Nale: She was going to be a gift for you!
- Panel 9
Voiceover of an image of Nale and Sabine clinking glasses on a fur throw rug in front of a roaring fire with Haley's bound corpse laying between them.
Nale (inset): Absolutely! I was going to subdue her and tie her up, so we could sacrifice her together when you got back. Check in our room, I left a bottle of wine there for later.
- Panel 10
Sabine: Hmmm.... all right. I'll forgive you, this time.
Sabine: Let's just get in there and slaughter both of them and get this whole nasty thing behind us.
Nale: The make-up killing is the best part of any fight.
Thog: thog help too!
- Panel 11
Nale: So... you really wouldn't have been upset if I had been seducing her?
Sabine: Nale, sugar, I'm literally an evil incarnation of illicit sex, do I seem like I would get hung up on who you sleep with?
- Panel 12
Sabine: Heck, I had sex four time while I was away.
Nale: (taken aback) You—you were gone for three hours!
Sabine: Yeah, well, I had errands to run, too.
D&D Context Edit
- Sabine is a Succubus, a chaotic evil demon that drains life with her kiss.
- The title is a play on the famous line "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned", interpreted from the 1697 play The Mourning Bride, by William Congreve.
