Well I guess we'll have to wait until April (?) to see what Mack drums up for us! I've been given the sense of false security with these writers before. I'm not letting my guard down until the end of Storming Heaven.
I'll second this. Though we know Pennington and Reyes survive to the conversation in discussion, for all we know, that conversation doesn't end the Vangaurd story. More might take place after that point. The Vanguard guys have woven a complex tale; who knows where they will continue taking us.
