Episode Recap:

Grant is driving Xander out to the coast.  Xander’s staring out into the void with those creepy snake eyes of his and it’s getting clear that he’s seeing stuff.  He’s psychic.   He sees two people trying to get off a sinking yacht.  One dude’s head is bleeding and you probably won’t notice yet but the lady has spock ears.  Grant, meanwhile has figured out that he’s been had.  Xander has manipulated this moment by getting Grant to push for the castaway’s rescue.  For some reason, Xander wants to appear to have been reluctant to do it, even though rescuing them was always his intention.  Still Xander’s pushing the responsibility onto Grant, telling him he’s going to regret forcing him to save them.  Grant responds by saying that it’s right to intervene, to save people if you can.  Xander responds by telling Grant some psychic insight into what’s going on on the wreck.  He tells Grant that the elf lady is holding on to a faint hope that she can see a rescue light.  Grant flips on his high beams.  

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.

Great effects with the rainy weather. 
Xander's certainly a clever character. XD

This is an interesting visual story telling. The way the comic panels are set to be scrolled 
down this way, is pretty cool. 

I like the episode recap and synopsis here. These are certainly interesting ideas, I can keep in mind. :)

I hope there's medical supplies in the car; a bad head wound can potentially be lethal, and I'm sure the elf girl has some injuries too.

medical supplies in the car...well, after a fashion, I'd say yes.  cat scan, mri machine, yup, it's all here.

There's more in it now as well, right? It seems clearer to me now what happened with Kore and Tanos than it was when I read it the first time ...
The way you draw the sea is always impressive.

Yeah I did a total redraw update recently.  I'm trying to get the first section fully redone with the better art and I'm trying to make it less confusing.  It was really confusing.  I hope it's a bit more clear now...

Good atmosphere...so Xander's a telepath who must be prompted to use his powers? Interesting.Wink/Razz

I really like the effect of the woman's face underwater. It's both realistic and magical.
