And Pete calls time on the "Rick is the Anti-Christ" debate as our little two-fisted moral compass.
I can't help but chuckle at the thought of Pete in a threesome... those things are intimidating enough when you're experienced, so Slugger would be completely rabbit-in-headlights. Having the keys to the candy store is scareee :)
Thank you Gibson for putting a spotlight back onto what keeps me coming back every single day: how great things seem for Peter and just how it's going to turn to get us back to where we all started reading.
This doesn't seem like the Peter that nearly killed Devon or got his mind blown when he found out Patrick was gay. He still has a long way to go and while I love the people and relationships he is surrounded with, I can't commit myself to any one of them besides perhaps Andy and there isn't any way to know that they stick together through any good decisions.
There could very well be a point in this story that Peter will make Rick look like a class act and we never knew why we liked him so much in the first place. He beats the shit out of people and is largely naive with little to no direction.
I hope people don't buy into Gibson's "get down on Christo party because he is full of shit" exactly how they bought into Rick... but then, we have now pretty much fully uncovered the fact that Mr. Twist can make us all feel some pretty heavy emotions.
I like how your characters, much like your audience, seem to be split fifty/fifty about Rick. Hats off to you as always, Mr. Twist, you've again managed to perfectly portray every possible angle in your story.
