Wooo they're all buddies
Im honestly glad Shin and Zoey are getting a chance at a happy ending, they seem like they'd be p cool while not manipulated
What a positive development!
John is such a sweetie. And yaaaaaaaay we get to see John's mom again! I'm happy about that.

This is a wonderful update.
Randy Newman - If I Didn't Have You

Zoey Tucker has joined John's party! I have to be honest, I've been DYING to get to this point. It's a chance to reveal even more about Zoey and John's relationship with each other. It also helps establish that both Zoey and Shin are trying to start fresh, wanting to rekindle the friendship they lost in a pretty bad way. But will John's current friends be as accepting just as quick? Find out next time!

Also John and Zoey are total Whovians.
@Gildedtongue: Zoey made a LOT of money with her band mates. Needless to say, she went out of her way to get that plate number!

Aw and I wouldn't worry, Zoey's a tough cookie. Though admittedly, it IS a bit of a pain sleeping in a car, especially if it's a 1982 two-door Pontiac Trans Am XD
@ZSnazzy: Hah! I never saw that before! I guess her hair style and sunglasses kinda give that vibe huh? I like it! XD
Hell of a plate
I imagine Zoey must've been very, very good to get that vanity number!

Guess everything seems to be moving on. Hope that Dread Z gets back on her feet soon enough. Sleeping in the back of a car, even a KITT must be murder on her back.
I imagine zoey having the same voice as Whoopi Goldberg idk why
Queen - You're My Best Friend

Huge thanks to Tailsteak for allowing a small cameo from Cheryl. Who by the way is from his completed comic Leftover Soup. In case you forgot, she acts as a consultant for Skyline Mall's security department every now and then. Needless to say, things quickly fell apart after John finally put his foot down. John's just super excited about having his old friends back in his life again. With any luck, The Three Amigos will indeed ride again!

In case you're wondering, yup. That's totally a replica of a certain 80's TV car that helped a certain action hero heartthrob out of numerous jams. Zoey wasn't always fiscally responsible when she was a rock star.
@Stephen: Huh... I may actually take that song into consideration! XD
@Jim Nickabocker: Hug the cinnamon roll, too pure for this world! *Glomps!*
John either pissed off Gary Gygax or was blessed by Wil Wheaton. ;)
@BarGamer: John is actually referring to the IDW comic book series Ghostbusters 101. There it connects the various other comics, video games and even the 2016 movie together. It apparently all started when the original four crossed the streams in the first movie. It's an absolutely fun read and I highly recommend it if you don't mind the 2016 busters!
What movie/series is John talking about in Panel 1? It sounds interesting.
@Gildedtongue: You hit it right on the bullseye as always Gildy! The money and power that came with Heather's celebrity did indeed bring out the absolute worst in her.

The fact that Zoey wanted a monogamous relationship, did in fact make the prospect of seducing Shin behind Zoey's back all the more inciting. She's a pretty bad person with no filter and no conscience. With any luck, this whole event helps her turn things around. If anything at least to see how much of a jerk she's been.

You can never be too safe when it comes to sexual activity, especially with someone as active as Heather. I can at least say that she's always practiced safe sex so at the very least she has that one thing as a redeeming quality.

A jagged slice.
I think we all would like to think when we are given plenty of money and power we'd be generous, magnanimous people. Heather... well, I think she saw the kind of influence she held, and thus her most base instincts came to the forefront. There is an intoxicating pleasure of getting what you want all the time, and I think Zoey's desire to make their relationship closed off probably made Heather's actions more enticing, for now it was something forbidden as well.

Speaking as a polyamorous person myself, Heather is certainly a toxic representation of that. And I've met people like her, and I pity those that are used and thrown aside in their wake.

I also have a feeling that Zoey probably needs to visit a clinic.
@sethtriggs: I'm glad you liked it! I'm pretty happy with how the arc turned out and I'm really glad to hear it was a little thought-provoking too! Though I can say for sure that we're gonna wiggle out of that heavy stuff and get back to some feel-good happy vibes!

Dang that was heavy
It was very bleak at the end that last panel, actually thought-provoking too. Good for Zoey and John. And this is really some interesting backstory interwoven in. Well done, well done!
John Waite - Missing You

In all seriousness, it can be very difficult to leave a toxic relationship. In many cases the victims involved don't realize how bad it's gotten. It feels normal to them because they really want to make it work, they honestly love the person they're with.
You can't see the red flags in a relationship if you're wearing rose tinted glasses.

Thankfully in John's case, after so much time of trying to reach out to Heather and putting up with her mistreatment, he's decided to give up. You can be the nicest person on the planet but unfortunately, not all people are receptive to being treated kindly. In fact some people thrive on the misery of others, it's an unfortunate fact. John handing back Heather's guitar pick is kind of a big deal because it was the one thing he's hung on to for hope. Hope that maybe they can at least continue to be friends. Giving back that guitar pick means that he's done. He tried as hard as he could but ultimately it wasn't enough if Heather wasn't willing to change. The gesture even catches Heather off guard.

John's action seems to begin karma domino effect which unravels Zoey's relationship with Heather. I know that in real life this doesn't happen often but I wanted to end this particular arc on not just a positive note but on a satisfying note too. Zoey has finally had enough of Heather's antics and actually quite the band. In the last panel, Shin looks a bit weary while even Heather herself has some glint of guilt or remorse, having received the guitar pick back. The one gift and gesture she made before the band became Mercy's Fist. The one gift from her that was given out of actual love. Will that be enough to break her out of this horrible person she's become? Will Shin ever find out what happened between Heather and Zoey? Only time will tell.

In the meantime I hope you've all enjoyed The Ex arc and I hope you're looking forward to the next one! A lot can change in a short amount of time after all. See you then!

This is so awesome
A stunning victory. But now I am hoping for closure. So we will see.
Remove the sliver from his heart
Well, considering Heather and co. are judges, I don't rate their chances high on winning, but, hey, going out and doing your all is the important thing.

And looks like John doesn't need those bottom two floating ribs anymore after Iris gets done with him!
