I guess she finished her conversation with Fuchsia and we'll never find out how the rest of it went. Well, darn.

Will They/Won't They can work if it's handled well. For example, I think it worked very well on FarScape between Crichton and Aeryn, whereas they rather overplayed it on Chuck with Chuck and Sarah (granted it was still epic when they finally decided They Do, but the blocks in Season 3 came of as contrived).

I felt it WAS handled fairly well with Slick and 'Nique, as both had clear issues that strongly indicated they weren't ready for any sort of long-term relationship with ANYBODY, much less each other. Unfortunately we've had hardly any interaction between Slick and 'Nique at all post-Sisterhood (which is probably the change MOST detrimental to the state of the strip once the Patriarchy arc kicked in. Slick and 'Nique played off each other so well and I REALLY miss their interactions). In fact this was the first real Slick and 'Nique strip in quite a while, and reading it I'm like, "Meh."

Any time you have a character who regresses on their prior character development, however, that tends to point to the "contrived" end of the spectrum.

because the reemergence of slick's chauvinism was a totally random event. it's not like he got bomfed and developed a hidden devil side or anything

incidentally, i felt like the fact that tat had to use devil slick for this and not the original is actually an indicator that slick has still progressed

I kinda wonder when Slick will be cured of his devil side. Then, maybe he could actually get along with 'nique afterwards, when he won't be out merely for banging pretty much anyone in sight.

NO. NO MORE TALKING ABOUT DEVIL-SIDES AND HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH NIQUE. NONE OF THAT SHIT.

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT HIS ASS. EITHER SIT THIS CONVERSATION OUT, OR TALK ABOUT HIS ASS.

I thought the implication was the two were some sort of split-personality, with Devil Slick being a completely separate entity from Normal Slick. Kinda like Hank and Charlie from Me, Myself & Irene. Normal Slick certainly didn't seem to be conscious of the existence of Devil slick after he got bomfed.

Um... yeah, wouldn't that mean you could never ever have any friends of whatever gender or type you could theoretically get romantically involved with?

I totally don't understand what you mean here. At least about good and evil. Huh?

Will they or won't they only works if there's actually a possibility that they will. There isn't. It's just that Slick refuses to accept that.

Aside from The Devil and Li'l E's mother (in the past) and Sam and Liberty (married couple), has anyone in this strip ever been confirmed to have, in continuity, had sex with anyone else? It's not impossible, but I'd be surprised. Even Blue's harem of nymphs was never seen.

...

Wait, okay, there were those two snails that one time, but other than them...
