Damon, of course, is the thinker in the last panel.

Dench, of course, is trying to figure a violent solution. Patience, patience.

For once, Dench might want to sit back and pay attention! :D

To Damon: Yeah, go get inside that big ugly space alien or face interviews from the Mayor! I hope the Mayor would let him keep the head as a trophy, but that'd have to wait anyway lol!

Finally, @Lich Barrister: If there's a theatre that just landed in this realm, shouldn't there be a gaping hole where that theatre took off from? I can just imagine someone saying "a theatre disappeared" and it might sort of rhyme with the last thing that guy the present theatre landed on! ;)

Last-ditch thought by Dench. It was more a "thinking-out-loud" situation than a real tactical ploy.

As for the gap where the theatre was before: it was located in the multiverse, a sort of in-between realm which both is and isn't in everywhere else - essentially, floating in a sort of open space that allowed them to connect up where they wanted. This is what made their shenanigans so problematic. So the gap left? Basically, a gap in the midst of a bigger gap. There are other things floating in the multiverse, but the only thing introduced in the comic was the realm of the legalistic dwarves. They'd certainly notice the absence...

And somehow people say my plot is confusing . . . Can't wait to see how they're going to get out of this!

@Dennis - I'm somehow in the running for the most confusing webcomic plotting (Adult division; properly punctuated with complex sentences category). I can't imagine why, but it reminds me of what the Earl of Rochester said about Voltaire one day while dining on roast pheasant on a picnic lunch...

[Kidding: I don't know that anecdote. Not even sure if there is such a one. Incidentally, the Earl of Rochester is usually NSFW, so google with care.]

Voltaire wrote the following about the Earl of Rochester (transcribed word for word from the text I'm looking at on this webpage):

http://books.google.com.au/books?id=pkgGAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA156&lpg=PA156&dq=Earl+of+Rochester+Voltaire&source=bl&ots=r11tMi-QIY&sig=fHnzqiG8EpSvhk-wrXAZ1qWHMWo&hl=en&ei=F9gkTvzeN8mJmQWU8IH0CQ&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=6&ved=0CD0Q6AEwBQ#v=onepage&q=Earl%20of%20Rochester%20Voltaire&f=false

"The Earl of Rocefter's name is univerfally known. Mr. de St. Evremont has made very frequent mention of him, but then he has reprefrented this famous nobleman in no other light than as the man of pleafure, as one who was the idol of the fair; but with regard to myfelf, I would willingly defcribe in him the man of genius, the great poet."

There's more that he wrote but I think that sums up pretty much what Voltaire thought of him. Also some of that old english with the 's' replaced with 'f' is rather hard to properly transcribe, apologies for any "typos" although my spelling checker went nuts on it! :D

I can't top that. I've never been good at adding in "f"s for "s"s to make the text agreeably 18th century.

I'm not even sure that was what you were referring to, it was, however, what came up when I went googling it. I'm not even sure how that would qualify as NSFW! :D

Hit up some of his poems, then, but don't say I didn't warn you. (One person's NSFW is another person's childhood storytime, I suppose... but my workplace is a school, so there you go.)
