Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates. — Mark Twain

Now the piper’s bill starts coming due.  That must mean we’re almost done with the dialogue for now.  Although Jacob does intend to strike up negotiations, so maybe there’ll be more talking later.  Or maybe not.

↓ Transcript
Jacob: The world situation just went F.U.B.A.R. in a big way. Lola's the only person I'd trust to sort it all out. We need her. So we need to negotiate a peace...and I'm the only person who can talk to both sides.
Girii: So Kentaro's plan worked?
Jacob: Which plan? Forcing G.U.S. to dissolve the Berkshire charter? Killing all the world leaders who opposed him? Yes, those plans worked.
Roger: Holy...
Jacob: If you mean, killing me --
Roger: ...crap.

  1. Jordan says:

    Jacob the diplomat… That’s a new chapter in his life. Hopefully it ends better than his Genocide Man career.

  2. Weatherheight says:

    Why do I have the feeling Jacob, deep in a corner of his mind, is standing in a a little square of dry floor with an ocean of wet paint stretching to the horizon?

    The idea that Lola is the best option is a bit terrifying…

  3. Unmaker says:

    OK, that’s why Kentaro limited the scope of his killings – he only killed those who were opposed. Surely he considered the backlash from that – those same countries are more likely than ever to be opposed. Or perhaps he didn’t care, since he was arranging suicide by genocide man (that sounds weird).
