While Roy takes punishment from the frost giantess, Haley, V, Belkar, and Blackwing realize that they've been left behind by the Mechane.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

Giantess with Axe: You were not the only one holding something back, human!

Panel 2

Giantess with Axe: I do not have to worry about upstaging my male colleague's subpar job performance anymore!!
She strikes Roy with an underhanded swing of her axe, "WHAM!", driving him into the forecastle bulkhead, "THUNK!"

Panel 3

Giantess with Axe: I will kill everyone on this ship for Thrym, and when the elders ask me—
Giantess with Axe: —I will not say he did all the work!
She smites Roy with her axe, "SLASSH!"
Roy: Rrrnnnh!

Panel 4

Cut to Haley and Vaarsuvius on a mountainside
Haley: That's weird. I just had the urge to shout, "Lean in, sister!"
Vaarsuvius: Perplexing.

Panel 5

Belkar: Hey, you kids need any help with—oh, you got it. Cool.
Haley: Aww, you're not going to get mad at us for killing all of them without you?

Panel 6

Belkar: Nah, whatever. I have stabbed so many faces today. I'm good.
Belkar: I'm actually getting a little antsy about Scruffy and Bloodfeast. And I guess by extension the ship and all the humans and the world.

Panel 7

Haley: I know what you mean. I'm worried about Elan, too.
Belkar: It's good you're finally ready to admit he's essentially your pet.
Haley: Come on, let's see if we can't catch up with the ship.

Panel 8

They take flight.

Panel 9

beat

Panel 10

Haley: Uhhh...

Panel 11

Haley: Does anyone know where the ship went?
Belkar: Again?!? I understand why they keep sailing away from me, but they're supposed to like you!

D&D Context Edit

  • Haley and V's fly spells were dispelled by the giantess cleric in #1059. Haley casts it on herself again with her wand, though she must have also cast it on Vaarsuvius off-panel, since V stated that they did have a second Fly spell in #1059.

Trivia Edit

  • Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead is a 2013 book by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg which deals with the challenges facing women in leadership roles in the workplace. Haley referenced this work in panel 4, after the giantess made several pertinent comments in the preceding panels.
  • When Belkar says "again?!?" in the final panel, he is no doubt referring to when Hinjo's junk sailed off without him and Haley back in #483, "Broken Stick".
  • This is the last appearance of the frost giant clerics who first appeared in #1056.
