So confused. So terribly confused…

Rhododendron Lake… that’s what Wes and Shelley and Mark and Cherry managed to turn into a scorched earth… right?  That took a plane to get to, right? That required the “local ranger” to make “travel arrangements” in order for everyone to get home…  and this has been the scene all along of where otters were being trapped and poached?  And Mark and rusty can canoe there without breaking a sweat?  Someone draw me a map, OK?

Oh but perhaps the most compelling aspect of this would-be story arc is NOT the fact that Rusty gets to go fishing, but that Mark lands FIRMLY on the side of Darwin… the Godless heathen!!

And as Mark’s elbow, sort of Señor Wences style, answers for Rusty, “OK, Mark!” Rusty lies in repose wondering whether life can get any better, now that he is complete… but we better hope that Mark doesn’t stray far as the “one line per fisherman” restriction is clearly being violated in panel three…
