Awww. This is one page that may seem to lack a climax off and by itself, but will be great to read in future re-reads of the whole story. =)
I also like the art where the Dwagon and Megalogwiff are glaring at eachother.

Shush. Monogamy is a product of our culture, not a universal one-true-moral-code to intimacy.
I think it suits her chaotic nature that she doesn't pursue it, and 'choose whomever doesn't force you to' is one of healthy non-monogamy's big ethical foundations.
Jillian and Wanda's thing here is also a classic example of how relationships where both people want and are generally able to make that work still hit bumps in the road. Presumably Wanda didn't set out to make her choose between her and Ansom, she was just out for strategic advantage and this was an unforeseen side effect (or she'd have realised the flaw in her 'can't hurt people you love' rationale about the workings of the suggestion spell). But she did, and Jillian did the only thing she could, and that paired with the simultaneous event of the spell's backlash has Wanda questioning whether she can deal with it all as comfortably as she thought she could. Now it's up to J to reaffirm that yes, you can genuinely care about more than one person at a time. She's doing an OK job.

Not something from an earlier strip, we're supposed to infer from this one what it was. So presumably Duncan stated that he was worried about Jillian, and she answered that she had a magic charm protecting her from Wanda. Which isn't literally true, but ends up working because Wanda cares for her, regardless. It might also be a play on the last text update's subject of Love as a magical/titanic/natural power in Erfworld.
