Under the circumstances, even if Jabby isn’t killing (or pflarbing) people anymore, going mad is kinda the only option Mauricio has. Efogoto January 17, 2019 at 3:18 am 9 months ago So going mad is the only sane conclusion? That’s nuts!

I’ve stuck with you through thin and thick. I’ve healed you when you were hurt. I’ve even saved your life when others were ready for you to die! Mauricio: Shut up, Jabby. You’re already mad. It’s where I’m going too. Jabby: See? We’ve got so much in common!

Peter Rogan January 17, 2019 at 10:37 pm 9 months ago The thought of Jabby having post-retirement plans scares me to death. He’s already largely replaced Mauricio; what or who else could he take over and turn into an ally in his quest for justice? For surely that part of his “ethos” (for lack of a proper antonym) has not retired, not in the least. watcher January 17, 2019 at 11:34 pm 9 months ago Plot twist. There was no Jabby, there was never Jabby it was all Mauricio all along. Trooper Sam January 17, 2019 at 11:35 pm 9 months ago At this point, why does Mauricio need a suit? What part of him is left that can physically die? Night-Gaunt49 January 17, 2019 at 11:37 pm 9 months ago He needs to hold it together by being with people. Instead he is doing what people who intend on suicide do. Separate and alienate themselves disconnected from their own species before they do themselves in. Only Mauricio can’t if Jabby will stop him. So he may go catatonic. He may withdraw inward. Then what will Jabby do?
