    Smashing job, Gladys.

      Those who live in stone houses shouldn’t throw glasses.

    • Personally, I get no kicks from champagne

  • Pam

    Booze to the rescue!

  • Olivia

    I just noticed Ethan is wearing his ring!
    Excellent attention to detail!

    • Del

      And he has flour in his hair, too….

      Perfect for St. Valentine’s Day.

  • JWLM

    Well, that’s what I call a smashing good idea

    “…Who’s like us?”
    “Damned few, and they’re all dead.”

    • qixlqatl

      What’s that reference from?

      • Adam Morris

        It’s a Scottish Toast

        “Here’s
        tae us; wha’s like us?

        Gey few, and they’re a’ deid.”

        It’s probably of 19th century origin.

        • qixlqatl

          Well, thank you much, and I’ll toast your health when next I open a bottle o’ Scotch ;)

    “To alcohol: the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems!”

    • fishsicles

      Alcohol is humanity’s friend. Can we abandon a friend?

    • Booze: Is there anything it can’t do?

      • svartalf

        Very little…

    • pippa

      I’d rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

  • I like the little flippy loop de loop for his hand gesture XD
    Gladys is on it!

  • rainycity1

    Yay Gladys!

  • elCo

    I sense an Edie and Gladys fandom growing. Spin-off?

  • Nonesuch

    And this is why Gladys is the dominant twin. :p

  • Mindsword

    The real question is, could they have done that right from the get go?

    I mean, this plan distracts and weakens Gluttony, gets the main serving antagonists out of the way, then goes for the circle. However, why should the first two matter? Sure it might be able to stop them from breaking it, but there are a bunch of people. Grab a bunch of rope or vegetables and move to different sections of the hotel and throw it out the window, breaking the circle at least once if not in multiple places.

    Maybe I shouldn’t be thinking about this at 4am. Overthinking things shall possibly be the death of me.

    • But its fun

    • Me-me

      Ah, consider this: Gluttony is summoned by the circle. Weaken the circle, and you weaken gluttony. However, gluttony also presumably protects the circle with Magicke, so if you weaken or distract gluttony, it stands to reason that it’d be easier to disrupt the circle.

      • that one

        I read that as “Magicake”.
        Thank you.

    • Nightsbridge

      Remember also that last time when our dear cooks tried to wander about the castle, there were forcefields there to stop them. Now there aren’t, perhaps because Gluttony is weak now, fighting Courage and having their feast stopped.

    • fwknight

      Check back two comics for the answer.

  • There’s that damned clock again. Wonder if it has anything to do with the summoning?

  • Odo

    I think I like best the use of breaking a glass that held booze (drinking being one of the things gluttony encourages) to break the circle.

    I also like the subtle and clever “signal”.

    Now on to speculation: Gluttony is inside the second circle, which will become the only circle once the outer circle is broken. Nora and Rosie are inside the circle too, but they are controlling the circle so if they break it properly, then gluttony will be banished and Fortitude will return to Nora. That’s my call.

    • ShadeTail

      Nah, all the other deadlies have been freed at the end of their respective chapters. One way or another, Gluttony will still be around back in Harry’s era.

      • Odo

        Wait, what , when are we?

        That might be true, actually. We are in a bit of an anachronistic island at the moment, aren’t we? I hate time travel. There’s always bits of loose paradox lying around after then ending.

    Classy

    Drinks are on the House er Hotel…
