It's possible for JS to repay the loan, if they survive, despite their losses, assuming they can collect on Charlie's bounty.
Also, Ben just disobeyed a direct order. Admittedly, he believes it's for the good of the side, but there don't seem to be any imminent exigent circumstances to allow a betrayal like this. Why hasn't he de-popped?
And Transylvito really IS on the edge. They have lost a third of their warlords, are losing cities, and if they lose their treasury, they lose units to upkeep and that snowballs into losing more cities and warlords until they are annihilated. Mr. Cornrow Benjamin sees that, as will Caesar. I think Caesar will start shouting at Don about the situation, and since Bunny was there for the chat, I think she will talk Caesar down from an act of Regicide. In the end, I think the price for Transilvito's loan to go through, over the objections of the top heads of the military and treasury, will be cutting off Faq's money supply. Caesar will force Don to leave Faq high and dry after they've been revealed to GK.
And the symmetry of panel 1 and 2 is just incredible. It conjures to mind what is happening and the movement of the front lines. The long haired brunet in the back of panel 1 is also in the back of panel 2, so none are getting away from the advance. On a side note, I didn't know you could toss opposing units like that. Either the Leadership bonuses have become completely lopsided by that point, or that Stabber deserves a raise!
And I notice the hair color of Queen Bea...It's the same as Sylvia's...Am I reading too much into that?
