Batman Beyond Saturdays, 09/13/2014

Announcement! This series ends in November. That sucks. Only seven more chapters before it ends with #40, so enjoy it while it lasts, I guess.

The Story:

The Royal Flush gang is back in action, everyone from Ace to Ten, which is curious, because Terry is currently dating Melanie, who has apparently given up being Ten... But after Ten almost botches the job, the rest of the gang gets angry at her, and leaves her for the police, and we find out that it's a new girl instead.

Speaking of Melanie, she's trying to sneak out of Terry's dorm without waking him, but fails. Turns out she's a bit strapped for cash and has an extra shift at the diner that morning. Terry offers to loan her some money, but she politely refuses and leaves.

Elsewhere, Ghoul shows Inque that he has a formula that will end her "allergy" to water.  They discuss some other stuff, and Inque seems to be looking for someone.

Later that night, Terry breaks up the Royal Flush gang trying to sell the statue they earlier. They get away, but Terry catches the fence. 

Melanie gets home to find a past due notice on her door, and inside waiting for her is Inque. 


The Thoughts:

This one is off to a bit of a slow start, and I'm having troubling getting a sense for where it's going. Obviously, Melanie is going to be tempted to get back into the Royal Flush gang at some point, but outside of that, I'm sort of at a loss. Thought the transition between Ghoul and Inque talking about her water weakness to Inque saying she's looking for someone was a bit awkwardly handled since she changes focus so much. Then this chapter ended literally the same way with Inque sitting on a couch waiting for someone. Hopefully next week lays out where this story is actually going.
