  • After three pages of trying and failing to push Heather away out of guilt, Marilyn admits that she intended to commit suicide through fighting Glass, before finally and understandably breaking down sobbing in Heather's arms.
  • Adastrea attempts to murder Dr. Singh, the only one with a possible cure for ALS in the Spinny universe, pats herself on the back for it, and then proclaims "justice" for going out and trying to kill every other patient with ALS.

  • In Heather's hometown, we have Sarah Nicole Megan, doped up into an ultra-PC and 50s-family-values mindset to the point that she spreads it to the whole town to keep the place perfect, even taking doses to keep from having a 'relapse' into being the old her.
  • Heather's father gives his wife Betty an ultimatum. If it comes down to her or their child, he will chose Heather. So she can either accept their daughter relationship with Marilyn, or they're through. It's all but stated she chooses the divorce.
