- And we're back. With a will to make 2016 a better year for Oct20 than 2015 was. I'll admit it was a rough one, update-wise. No excuses.

This serves as an official passing of the baton. Whenever these dialogue boxes have shown up, it's been a window into Cat's thoughts. As of this page, Rai takes over. We'll see how long it lasts.

Welcome Back! - Let me be the first to say :"Welcome back! We missed you!"
Okay, enough of that. Love this page.
What the heck is Baltimore up to? Walking around packing heat like that? Where is she? And who is the guy who wants to get her attention?
And Shields in that third panel-the expression and body language are great. He's tired too. And, I daresay, concerned for Cat's safety. I don't think he's putting on his act here. Nice job humanizing him.
Poor Rai. That last panel is like a stage set. And there he is, all alone, cleaning up the mess he made.

- New year, new protagonist. He's starting out pretty low in life. Things can only go up from here, right? Right?! :) I mean, he didn't get eaten by a wild animal on the long walk back, so there's that. Although Rai would probably consider that an improvement at this point.

- Good to have you back!

Okay, I still hope Cat will be back, but...fine. Rai's owning up to his faults and that makes me care just a little bit more about what will happen to him. So I'm still mad at him for shooting Cat, but I'll sit back and watch him grow. You're an evil, evil little man, but no matter what cruel twist you might come up with, I know you're a good writer. You wouldn't make a turn like this without having something great in store.

- @GroovyKinda: The man behind Baltimore is someone you'll get to know better soon. Baltimore and Jeroen are on body guard duty and he is their charge. That's what the "Mutai contract" was about. But more on that later.

- @Andy P.: It does appear that Rai is at his lowest point. But there's always a lower tier. Let's see if he can find it.

- @melaredblu: "Evil" is such an ugly word. I prefer "virtuously challenged".

Cat's status I'll not say much about. She's under the knife at the moment, and that's all we know. Anything could happen.

As for Rai... Does feeling sorry (for yourself) make you less of a miserable wretch? Would Cat ever be able to forgive him, were she able. I probably couldn't.

I truly believe that what comes of this will be worthwhile, that it's some of the best stuff I've ever written. I can't wait to see if the reader agrees.

- Rai cleaning up the mess he made. It's literal and I get a sense that the image is also a metaphor that is foreshadowing a significant evolution in his character.

- Well, Rai might get a little sympathy now, seeing him self-defeated. He has really touched rock-bottom. The path to redemption is a hard one.

- @jessie : He's about to take a turn right now, that's for sure. We'll see if it's a turn into oncoming traffic, or somewhere worthwhile.

- @hipopotamo: You have no idea how hard it is. The worst is still come, believe it or not.
