Episode 2091: Life is Cheap


If someone wants something from you, don't let on that you have some other thing that they want too. Especially if you're a character in a prisoner exchange situation like this.

Ah, now that makes movie sense. Not the whole stolen identity part, that's obviously a comic creation. Wanting revenge on the good guys for something, big or small, imagined or otherwise? Heck, ignoring TV Tropes, that kind of motivation was called out as part of Loki's apparent goal in The Avengers movie. Is it close to the movie dialogue though? I think I'd want a flashback panel or few to give this better odds than a coin flip.

A, F, G, H, L, M, N, O, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, and Z. I think. Nine more names to go! Will we be able to find out the rest, or did Jim's character trip his death flag too soon with the Zeppo name? B, C, D, and E are going to be tough as those are likely ancient game history at this point. And for another bet, will we find out that this insignificant backwater planet is Tatooine? I'd think Sally would be more creative about backstory places, but she might have been given this information by the GM. And while GM does like to reuse places a lot, this also wouldn't be the first time the comic has renamed a planet.


Kylo Ren: Your father murdered my father in cold blood. And stole his identity.
Rey: You’re really going to have to be a bit more specific.
Kylo Ren: I traced him through a string of guises. Leonardo, Marco, Nunzio. Maddeningly, he managed to blunder his way one step ahead of me.
Kylo Ren: Apparently the Hutts called in the real Nunzio’s gambling debt. Their bounty hunter didn’t know the difference. I thought your father died a meaningless death on an insignificant backwater planet.
Rey: Was this bounty hunter’s name Ottavio, by any chance?
Kylo Ren: Now I see what happened. By another stroke of stupid luck he eluded me.
Kylo Ren: Until now.
Kylo Ren: The price of your return has just increased. The map, plus your father.
Rey: Honestly, that’s a discount.
