I think I'm more worried about that fact that Pi is going to take an interest in what may turn out to be a superweapon.  Unintended consequences, anybody?

I could definitely see that happening :)

Big red trigger button somewhere? And Pi is just the guy to find it... and push it!

So Lota's brain is in the Annie plants.  Seems like just the place a superweapon would get its power from.

Well, at least the questions are now being answered rather than asked.  The biggest question is who will take the brunt of the damage when the paranoia (from Kevyn to Lota) and insanity (Pi, and how) touch.

It looks as if they've pulled Pi off the architectural research into making weaponized french fries... maybe he'll pursue it in his spare time?

Looks to me like he's already tried that one in his spare time.

Sorry, dangling reference, I meant may be Pi will continue digging into the history.

OK, that is a scary thought.

Brace for revelation! I think Pi just said something that led Ebby to figure out what's going on. The keywords are "empty inside" and "distraction" -- now what's the question?

I guess not.  Even a superweapon couldn't distract Pi from things he could blow up on his own.

Darn, darn... we came close, but still don't quite know what Credomar, the superweapon, is... and soon, we'll be at the Mall! Do you think we'll ever find out just what the mysterious origin of Credomar is? Will Lota pull the trigger? Will Pi push it, accidentally? Stay tuned...

Howard would be a fool not to use this setup to great effect in the future. I fully expect LOTA the ninja-pirate-robot-cowboy to ride in at a key moment with his Giant Exploding Cigar of Doom to save the day (or royally mess some stuff up, or get pwned by Petey, or join the fleetmind, or...)

This had better be Checkov's gun.  Gun the size of a planet, but a gun nonetheless!

I cannot imagine this setup being wasted!

I'll bet this is, at least, a setup for Part 5 of this story arc. Howard is carefully setting the stage... for something!

Oh, definitely. Lunesby and Tagioalisi will surely also play roles in the story to come.
