I know many people (well, some people, anyway) are eager to find out what's happened to Theresa. Will she be alright? Has William betrayed her? Where did that brick come from? Most of these questions will be answered... eventually.
However, this chapter isn't just the story of William and Theresa. There's also Chrys and Mandrake. And I don't think Chrys's fans would like to wait several months before she shows up. So, we'll be switching back and forth between the two pairs (with occasional interludes to show what Melody and Kludge are up to).
In the meanwhile, can you figure out what all the science fiction flick references are in the second panel of this page? Most of them are pretty easy.
