Such a sad ending to the chapter.
Question 1: (dumb) Whose gun is that? It doesn’t look like Vane’s or the Prioress’s.
Question 2: (also pretty dumb to ask at this point) What is the inscription on John’s watch? the second part reads “‘Till the end of time, Angel Eyes:” (I think) but I can’t read the first part. Certainly that watch is a Chekhov’s timepiece.
Extra dumb: Or is that what’s left of Diamonds?
The bottom left? That’s what’s left of Diamonds.
Thanks. He does keep checking the time . . .
And NOW it all makes sense. Thank you, Erin.
Really? Can you explain it to the rest of us, then?
My best gueas is that Vane inadvertently caught the plague she was studying in an earlier flashback. Given its lethality, it’s safe to assume that either she died, or was close to death. Desperate to save her, hunter bound a demon, or other malevolent spirit to her body, which has skewed her perception of Hunter, and potentially other people. The spirit urges her to hunt him down, undoubtedly furious at being bound within her corpse, while Hunter wanders the land, trying to keep her from harming others while desperately searching for a way to heal her, or remove the creature’a influence without killing her. I’m also assuming that Hunter may have caught the disease first, and that Vane may have augmented him to save his life, which would explain his remarkable durability. Perhaps, she caught the disease while performing surgery on him, and was unable to cure herself?
In my opinion, he’s not so much binding a malevolent entity to her–we see him banish the black ‘creature’ a few panels back and free a fiery/light outline of Vane from it (her soul/essence, I guess.). Then, we see him sort of funnel it back into her. My guess is that somehow his method of resurrection is incomplete and wrong, or that humans were just not meant to perform such magics, so they come back ‘wrong’ (or get corrupted over time) sort of like the homunculi in Fullmetal Alchemist.
I’m thinking that when he bound her with flame, a fallen Seraph jumped in there with whatever, if anything, was left of her soul.
Them priests know a thing or two about why such stuff is forbidden. We’d best listen more often.
