* A recent ''ExterminatusNow'' [[http://exterminatusnow.co.uk/2014-03-24/tangled-web/the-eyes-have-it/ comic]] has Eastwood refuse to help Virus rescue a group of Tyrusian Pilgrims because he thought he saw a spider daemon through his binoculars (he's extremely [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes arachnophobic]]). So Virus heads down on his own, but not before telling Eastwood that if there really '''''is''''' a spider creature creeping about, it would be nice to have someone watching his back instead of being left all alone where it could easily creep up on you. Eastwood ''quickly'' follows Virus.
