So! Flyboy is bleeding out and Spooky doesn’t have the power to save him! And now he’s using that necklace that Flyboy noticed during their sleepover.

What does the necklace do? And will it be enough?!

Tune in this Wednesday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

 

Curiouser and curiouser. Who is he talking to?

Is Spooky going to make a deal with a devil to save Mitch?

I’m not sure, but I’d bet even money that the price he’ll pay is his memory of their interaction.

(It looks like a cup, or perhaps a Grail. Any watery tarts expected?)

In both words and drawings, this page so beautifully captures the emotional intensity of this moment for Spooky.

Maybe he’s summoning a devil, but I’d normally associate a chalice symbol with the Holy Grail. He might be summoning Merlin, who I’d hope would be immune from the Grey Working. Or maybe Spooky is summoning aid from the Holy Grail itself.

I can imagine that somewhen in Spooky’s history, he helped someone powerful and was rewarded the chalice necklace as repayment, a one-use wish sort of thing for emergencies. Perhaps a drink from the Grail could cure Mitch completely, not just of his horrific physical injuries, but also of whatever’s causing that blue fire to flare up from his arm.

Good guess I would think. Some type of artifact at least as shown

…gettin a real deal with the devil feeling here…

That’s a very good question, Klaus.

Teen Spooky would have to be completely desperate to do such a thing.

Of course, adult Spooky did make a pact with Velliok in Past Sins…

An interesting theory, Nate.

Thank you, Lee. I’m glad you think so. :slight_smile:

These are both very fun possibilities, David. I dig them.

Yep, I love your speculation, David.

Looks like we’re going to find out. :smiley:
