If Lorelei is an enemy, she is going about "being an enemy" in a very strange way.  ;)

You can have a lot of access to your victim and cause a lot of damage if you convince her you can be trusted.

I don't consider Lorelei to be an enemy, however she did take in someone who turned out to be a very hot potato. Naturally she wants to get rid of that hot potato as quickly and as safely as possible. The simplest way to do this would have been to let S&M agents in while Diana was sleeping and let them take her, if she had been an enemy, that is. Arranging a well-publicized surrender like this is a friendly act, and like someone else said, the safest place for Diana might be a holding cell.

I was rather surprised that Juan was found alive though. I got the distinct impression that he did not survive his kidnapping and interrogation; maybe it was because he managed to convince them he knew nothing that could hurt them?

Doing the whole surrender in such a public way is a much better way to do this than the way it sounded the first time.

Surrender? Does anyone want to place bets?

Hmm, if Juan they have Juan, he should be able to tell them she isn't guilty, so this is obviously a trap. I find it hard to believe that no security corp would represent and protect her under the condition that she surrender. Especially if she has reason to believe their competitor was compromised. It sounds like she is being given FUD in with a very beta solution to her problem. Spending the rest of this investigation in a holding cell may be the safest thing for her though. It may be up to Zander to complete it.

I imagine FDR is a bad sign in this comic for sure, but I like him just fine.  :D

In any other comic, a portrait of FDR might pass without comment - in this one, it's just about the last straw.

That's not FDR, that's Brian Mulroney. And he and Washington are there for a reason which will be revealed later.
Well, a positive spin would be that both of those men seem to have tried to make things better using the tools they had at their disposal and had mixed results.

Interesting note on Q-links. Am I correct in assuming more or less as follows:

  • Q-links are strictly point-to-point; you cannot tap the connection without compromising at least one end.
  • You have to either use some telecom company operating a switch connecting you to another of their customers or exchange a q-link with your intended recipient. In former case you have to trust your telecom, but latter requires a previous face-to-face meeting. Possibly even physical jiggery-pokery to exchange q-dots or something.

It's sort of like Bitcoin, where everyone has a unique address, but unlike Bitcoin in that the "blockchain" doesn't contain any information beyond who contacted whom, and that data gets purged as part of the process. All open-source so no cheating. It guess it's more like the Signal app.
