Page 50! Woohoo! Another milestone.

Spike becomes aware of Sombra, alas, very late.

Pony-Berserker has asked me on Patreon "did the events from Spike's sin list really happen or not?" 

So the answer to that question is "yes, but..."

"But" because they happened either not the way Spike remembers them now (see Page 16 vs Page 33 ), or words were spoken in the heat of the moment and are rather unfairly taken out of the context (again Page 33 or Page 20).

Moreover, Spike doesn't remember the follow-ups (like Twilight being remorseful and promising to do better on Page 34), because Luna has temporarly locked away their purified dreams to protect them.

What Sombra is showing to Spike could only work so well, because Spike was unable to definitely dismiss it. He can't do that, because he always felt unsure about Twilight's love (because events from the past - Page 44). And Twilight has provided - due to her immaturity, short fuse and overwhelming responsibility - lots of material for Sombra to use.

The easiest way to distort the truth is to simply cherry-pick it. In many cases that will give you something even further from the truth than you would have been able to think of if you had simply lied outright.

Something similar to this needs to happen on the show! Spike and Twilight's relationship was never tested this much, at least not since Owl's Well! Feels like something like this should really happen!

I think Sombra now officially has beaten this into his head.

Embrace the hate, it will keep you warm, drive you to be better, make those who made you suffer, suffer back, an eye for an eye.

Love the double sided expression in the last panel. If you use your hand to cover half of his body vertically, on the left you see a twisted anger filled almost demon like expression, and on the right you see a terriefied child who seems so lost. The contrast in the shapes in Spikes hands on each side match the side they are on, the left curled in what I would refer to as a accusing villain finger, and the right held close tightly to the body as though to protecting himself. If you dissect it further the eye sombra appears to be inhabiting is the right eye which could either mean he is associated with the left brain, as it controls right side of body, and thusly as popularly believed is where Spikes reasoning and logic are centered which means sombra is controlling Spikes ability to think rationally. It could also be a literal in terms of side meaning it would inhabit the right brain which controls emotions. Either way it seems more of Spikes body is becoming Sombraesque, as seen through his body language in the final panel, and therefore he is slowly losing control of himself. Great work DSana! Cant’t wait for the next page!!

Yes, Spike, distort.  He takes the worst memories, the worse fears, the worst paranoia, and makes it feel like that's the truth that always was.  He presents you the bad without benefit of the good, and thus weakens you from within, twisting your emotions until you can't bear it anymore.

I so hope Twilight can help Spike.  Love this comic.

Congratulations for a new milestone of this awesome comic!

Back to the plot.
Ouch! That hurt. 
At least Spike didn't say 'I hate you' to Twilight. 

I like the effects of the shades of this page.

Thanks for the information in the description dSana. 
It's very helpful.

As usual this is my choice of music for today's page.
