Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 95
…There are a number of givens that Pentateuch takes to his cold, cold heart…
“When was the last time we ran from a fight?” asks Constance
“Other than that damned dog, Fanny!”
“Then we should stick it out for a while, to see how things fall in place and hopefully not fall to pieces,” no Eddie, no joy.
Directly on the heels of those positive thoughts, Edie Dombroski emerges from her private isolation, “Eddie made it through surgery! They tell me he has a 65% chance of being his old self again!”
Edie is just happy her hero is alive.
Everyone else is hoping that the near-death experience erases some of those 2,000 stories and perhaps 4 of his shirttail relatives.
A group hug breaks out, unabashed joy replaces doubting despair. For the three women who did not know each other when the sun rose in the east, are now bonding just as it sets beyond the promising western horizon.
Back at Via Catone, Cephus/Spencer/Rogue/Daniels reports back to an already frustrated Pentateuch. Strange and mysterious are the ways of this disreputable despot and how he knew of Canisso/Wolfgram’s unfortunate encounter with nature’s wrath is unsettling.
“A random bolt of lightning? Please! Those measly humans will blame “Mother Nature” for something like that!” This incident only adds to the deep-seated jealousy harbored against the Divine One and his powers. “Alas, poor Canisso.”
“I doubt that he was taken into the heavenlies.” There are a number of givens that Pentateuch takes to his cold, cold heart:
- =There is a Heaven
- =There is a hell
- =He will never be #1
1. “You are going to tell me that, that old woman is still alive,” Period.
2. “You have failed to satisfy your terms of conscription,” True.
3. “I need to replace Canisso,” Fact.
Inadvertent successor or no, Cephus/Daniels has reached his objective without having to whack-a-nun. He will be able to witness World Agnostica Unlimited’s most dire activities and have a hand in FOREVER MASTADON’s day-to-day.
If all goes according to the CIA’s plan, both will crumble from the top down.
