You continue to watch Macland, but it doesn't go much further.

"If you do see any evidence that the girl was involved... do let me know."

"Yeah. Sure." Macland hangs up, then angrily hurls his cell phone across the hotel room.

You tell the rest of the group what you saw.

"Starts with TH..." mutters Dr. Finch. "Hmm. Surely not too many upper crusts with a name like that. Patton Thale? Winst Thompson? Theodore Reigns? I'll do a little more digging tomorrow."

You ask Fuse how many of the names from the club's membership list he can remember. "Not... a lot," he says, hesitantly. "I'm, uh, not that good with names. Wait..." He motions, as if to almost slap himself. "I'm an idiot. We should get some cleantex. It might be risky going to the lower tiers for it, but I'll remember every name and face. It won't hold up in court or anything, but it gives us a leg up on trying to pin down some of these guys."

Michelle nods. "Yeah. It's like four in the morning now--I dunno if that makes it a better or worse time to take a joyride in poor town. Tee Aych is prob'ly riled up about us now, too, so that won't make it any easier."

Dr. Finch nods in agreement. "It may have to wait until tomorrow, then. After the 'heat is off,' as they say."

Michelle stifles a grin, but Fuse goes right for it. "I don't... I don't know if anybody says that. Or has said that in like twenty years. The heat? Have you been watching old cop movies or something?"

Dr. Finch indignantly straightens his coat. "Perhaps I'm bringing it back! If you knew what I meant, then it's not outdated."

CLEANTEX. I totally forgot about that incredibly useful thing omg XD YES, WE CAN DO THIS! Could we go get some from Grizwald actually, if going to the lower tiers is going to pose a risk?

Also... after the heat is off, indeed. After that fiery escapade, I'd say it's more than punnily appropriate. *adjusts sunglasses*

Welp, time for sleepy times, then. Should we hold off from dream-time shenanigans until we know some names to try probing Mac with?

Seconded, asking Grizwald first does sound like a good idea.

Rejoice that you made it out pretty much intact.
Mourn the loss of Malteser (press F to pay respects).

The lady in the VIP room is Queened, and has free access to its remains. Jane can try sensing if they're being moved or not.
I doubt they'll miss that opportunity.

Couldn't we mimic the effects of Cleantex? Or was that just in ourselves? If so, we should do that, or at least try it, if Fuse is okay with it.

That could be helpful. Let's ask our Red if it remembers how to mimic the effects of Cleantex.

Fanart rendition of this page's last scene because it was too cute and I love all these characters to bits XD

This looks even more hilarious than what I imagined.

at some point we should check fuse's burns and make sure they're not getting infected or anything. as it's pretty late maybe turning in for the night would be a good idea. we can go find grizzwald or another source of cleantex in the morning.

make sure fuse is doing okay with that burn on his arm and go get some of that good ol' cleantex from mr hobo grizwald
