A few updates ago we see Janis & Marie supprised to figure out what is about to happen (but no opinions given), skip to now we see Marie approving and Janis disapproving. Janis's first line in panel 2 is disapproval.
That's an excellent point. That exchange was in Text Update 45
looked at the portal for a number of seconds, then started and gasped
"He didn't order you through, did he? You're not going through this portal...!
"No," sighed Sizemore. He did not look up at all.
"No," echoed Marie. "Not you, is it? Your boss, though."
He was sure he flinched a little, but Sizemore said nothing. Seeing no way around it, he went ahead and constructed the trapdoor. The vibrations underfoot were unmistakable.
He looked up at last.
Marie met his eyes, but her face was turned away, her mouth twisted into a dot. Janis' look begged him to deny what she was thinking
. He shrugged.
The women then turned to one other."That... That would change everything," said Janis, in an awed whisper.
Marie's voice went soft and low, but her eyes still smiled. "Dint I tell you."
I think too many people took "awed whisper" to mean approval. I think it just means her amazement at Parson's audacity. The statement that she looked at Sizemore and silently begged him to deny what she was thinking (that Parson was going to use Portal Park to get to Jetstone) says a whole lot more.
In this update, she never approves of Parson's actions. Before she notes Jeftichew, she says "this will upset a lot of people", and she's referring to just Parson. After that, she's just flailing for some reason to try to back out of Marie's plan. She thought ending war would preserve MK -- now she's beginning to realize that it's going to destroy it.
