Oh man. Sorry for this ultra-late upload, on top of everything else, I'm also really sick now, and I kinda slept through my alarm. I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Hm. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe Clara was perfectly aware Jack was eavesdropping. Hardly surprising since she understands magic.
Still. His beef is with Chase but now they are both alone.
To be honest, tipping the scales a bit in Jaunt's favor will not hurt because if Jack's mission proves to be another screw up, anyone higher might as well fire Jaunt immediately, lmao :D
But something tells me Clara is perfectly prepared...

I have a feeling Jack is still just observing, and perhaps that is all he is meant to do. After all, bodies invite investigation, and the last thing Jaunt needs are more people prying into his business, particularly since he's headed out of town for help after the last intrusion onto his home turf. Whatever plans Jaunt is carrying out for his master, patience is a virtue and discretion is advised.

When I saw this page, it clicked and reminded me of a song:
Jack In the Green by Jethro Tull

It starts with
"Have you seen Jack-In-The-Green?
With his long tail hanging down.
He sits quietly under every tree
in the folds of his velvet gown."
and ends with
"Jack put out the light!"

Completely unrelated to the abovementioned...
I have no idea what's going to happen next. By probabilities and cold logic, I'd rather think that the day will not end peaceful. But that's just one possibility of many...

Chekhov's gun on the mantelpiece was the knife being given to Jack. Jack feels he has something to *prove* and has generally been characterized as more impetuous and fiery than the rest of Jaunt's men.

This suggests that Chekhov's gun is going to be fired shortly..

Now, Clara's skyward glance suggests that she's aware of *something.* A chill down her spine, a rustle on the wind that didn't sound quite right. Heck, the way they keep pointedly mentioning the amulet, over and over?

. . . almost sounds a bit like Jacky-boy might be getting set up here. Though I have nothing in the way of evidence beyond "plot senses, tingling."

Ah, that's a great idea and I would love to see it coming true, but I have to mention a counter-argument: Clara and Chase have been quite busy, they didn't know that they would meet each other (and Roy) in front of the speakeasy, and I think we have observed everything they did when they got out of it: Talking about their options and what to do.

I understand that the amulet came up often because Roy reminded them. I also think that neither Clara nor Chase are aware of being followed by Jack. To set up some trap for Jack they'd need to know of him and have some countermeasures against him, either ready or easily to prepare. But the amulet was directed against Jaunt, it wouldn't help against Jack. They would need a little time to make a plan, time they didn't have since leaving the speakeasy.

So unless Roy knows about Jack and uses them as a bait... But how could he know if Clara and Chase don't know: Roy had no encounter with Jack.

Panel one and I'm flashing back to "Thoroughly Modern Millie". Yeah, I'm old.

I am guessing that Claire lives in a "women only" building, which was a big deal in days of yore. In the first season of Marvel's Agent Carter it was an important plot point.

Not just "women only", there would have been a matron who kept track of what time you came in.

I hope this is ok
