God, that guy is just... unbelievable. "We're not going" As if it is a Sin if indeed she would just go without him because she said she'd be there and he doesn't want to go. Then a giant tangent because of it, the top of his jealous pedestal surely cannot even be seen it is so high.
Of course she cannot speak for him but he can speak for her. Reminds me of an ex-friend of mine, though I got out at the threaten-to-burn-me-in-the-eye-with-cigarette phase. This does not bode well for Melanie.
"We're not going", "I don't feel like going", "You don't speak for me." In three sentences (out of five in a row), Devon's insane tyranny.
All right, now I officially don't care if Christo kicks his ass. (Yeah, I know Peter's more likely, but all Slugger will do is knock him senseless. If Christo does kick his ass, think of the humiliation. Wiley would be even better, but I don't know what could give him the motivation. Unless Devon slaps Michelle first.)
(The only point on which I won't heartily agree with the above comments is that some people - certainly not sweet Melanie - can mess one up enough that one goes crazy a la Devon here, even though one hopes not to be such an asshole.)
The only nice thing I can think of about Devon now is that since he does not appear to smoke, he will not threaten to burn Melanie with his cigarette. Though his mindset seems warped enough that he might start smoking just to try that.
She's gonna stay with him. That's the tragedy of foreshadowing as this comic has, with the reminiscing monologue. "She made bad choices." She still thinks there's something to love in him, and I have a good feeling this isn't the first time this has happened.
"Well tonight we're not. I guess you should have asked me first." And this is quickly followed by "You dont speak for me." I dont think anyone in the world could be more of a condescending hypocritcal asshole than Devon lol.
