Consider that mischief managed, Fangirls. Last issue I was worried that things were getting too crazy in the world of the Holograms, but that didn’t prepare me for reading this issue. The Misfits are at the Benton house for their Halloween party, and they’ve just missed the music video release. That instills some rage in dear Pizazz’s heart, so she makes a new plan; tail Jem until they can get some alone time.
Of course that doesn’t really work out because Jem enters a room and Jerricha leaves, and by the time Pizazz has noticed, there’s no one in the room. Disheartened, she slumps and checks her phone, only to find out that their opener for their tour is Jem and the Holograms. Pissed, she leaves, ditching her friends.
Meanwhile, Jerricha and Rio have made up, as have Stormer and Kimber. Aja is making out with her boyfriend (who showed up in the same costume as her, Furiosa), and everything is looking pretty hunky dory.
But then, Techrat breaks into the pool house, and an alert goes off, telling him to stay put as someone will be there to remove him from the premises. Of course he gets out of there, only to find a shivering Roxy crawling from the pool, with Stormer and Jetta trying to get ahold of Pizazz so they can go home.
With no luck reaching her, the gang grabs a cab home, while Roxy leaves a not so nice voicemail, and we see panels of Pizazz reaching for her phone and driving off of a cliff. That was something I really didn’t expect, nor did I want to see.
Back with Eric, Techrat explains that there is some sort of AI controlling the Holograms’ security, and probably more. He says the technology is years ahead of current stuff, but he doesn’t have to worry about messing it up; something is already wrong with it.
This issue has me really worried. Is Pizazz going to be alright? What’s going on with Synergy? Is everyone going to stay in these relationships?! Aaahhhhgh there’s only one way to find out, and hopefully the answers are in issue ten!
