Well, somebody is finally putting his foot down about the goofiness and madness of this story! No, wait (to borrow a phrase). Mark is just upset about the madness of Sid Stump’s heroic woodsman fantasy. Well, at least he is finally getting serious. I think we can tell that from his expressions (the likes of which I haven’t seen since his first adventure, investigating his dad’s shady operation).
Now, if Mark follows through with a full follow-through and clocks Stump, I’ll breathe a bit easier, knowing that the old Mark Trail does, indeed, live on.
