Synopsis:  

Aging telepath Evil Overlord Xander has traded his youthful dream of joining the US military and using his superpowers to benefit humanity for over-the-hill cynicism, self-imposed exile on his private zoo-for-crazy-people Eynhallow Island, and a serious case of May-December midlife crisis.  And technically it's only kidnapping if she tries to leave.  or the fun version

Grant seems concerned about the phone-call. Might it be because the people on the other line are Kore's people trying to negotiate for her release.

He is going to play fetch with shane and realize that he is not as stupid as he think he is.Then the real game starts.Afterall we saw him become a freaking octopus.
Am i right?

There's something going on with Shane that only Xander knows about right now.  But we're gonna find out.  Oh boy, we're gonna find out in a big way.  I've got tons of work to do to get ready to draw this sequence...what have I gotten myself into!

Well i'm open for suggestions,If you need some.
One thing i don't understand is how he smuggled kore out of the palace or how he got in.And why is he still alive...,

two of those questions are definitively answered by stuff in the images already ;)  stuff that'll become much more obvious later as Xander's continued forcing of people to confront their own issues moves forward.  the third...?  Xander has some deep deep wounds that have never healed

Uh ohhh something is going on, maybe Xander should listen but then again.. he hasn't really had to worry about anything like ever so.. why should he now :thinking:

he's not listening in?  last episode Grant even asked him to keep the guy on the line... there's no way he doesn't know exactly who is calling and why.  he's just being mean, foisting it off onto unprepared Grant.  it's sort of traditional to have the seconds make the arrangements.

By my understanding, Xander is reading everyone's minds simultaneously, so he knows not just who is on the other end, but what they want, who's backing them and all the little details that most would forget and/or disregard. Still, he does the villains role so well, just playing around while his head honcho hurriedly tries to work things out, but chiming in when the time is right! :D (Big Grin)

100% on the money.  I don't think it's lost on Grant that there will be far fewer witnesses to whatever happens at this meeting if it's held on Eynhallow versus if he goes to San Francisco too.

Looking forward to what happens next!
