    Interesting. The doll is Isaac now? Will he remain past the turn in this new form? Time will tell.

    Technically they shouldn't need the wrench to get out of there, as there's still just an ordinary dirt plug near the Dirtamansion.

    Binding of Isaac... I guess that makes sense, but it sure still threw me!

    So our heroic casters survived the link. I didn't expect that.

    Maybe portal mischief is still in the cards.

    Does this mean pineapple broke Isaac up from the 8.2 link too and installed him on the d̶o̶l̶l̶ action figure? He speaks remarkably unkafkian now.

    I guess "not cheating the world of its victory" means the croaked thinkamancers will ride peacefully into the sunset next turn, leaving behind their fellow dolled up headmaster, since he wasn't crushed under the temple's rubble.

    I am wondering how Wanda plans to get out now that Ivan can no longer break the portal collar from underneath the world.

    Also, does anyone still have a copy of that image of Sylvia holding a joint while telling the dragons to inhale? It was my profile pic and now I fear tis lost forever =(

    Awww, did Wanda just comfort the doll into not crying anymore? With a hug? <3

    I'm curious if this is "really" Isaac or just the most advanced cloth golem ever created.

    And what's up with Tondelayo? Is pineapple going to veil her as Wanda and have her lynched by the caster mob, perhaps?

    Interesting. I wonder if Big Think was unable to process the grief, so action figure Isaac is experiencing it all now. Hopefully we'll see Transylvito next. I suspect Roger will be VERY surprised when Parson gets that call.

    So if that really somehow is Isaac (and I sure hope we get some explanation as to how such a thing was even possible), then it seems likely "he" would be able to survive the pending implosion of Big Think at end/start of Turn.

    Indeed, that could be the reason why Isaac has subsumed the doll-- he used it as a "life raft" for his consciousness. Also suggesting the possibility that Isaac is no longer part of the 8.0.

    Sheer speculation of course; canon exposition desperately wanted!

    Did Big Think hijack Issac's body and exile his mind to the doll? And could this be done with Bunny?

    Wow, I just noticed that the Isaac action figure is half Isaac, half insect (probably caterpillar from the shape). So, one final Kafka reference.

    I too was surprised the two casters survived that experience. I wonder if Stanley could tell that they changed/disappeared momentarily but now are back as before. Apparently Wanda didn't sense anything.

    If Wanda had known the offer was for a temporary link-up that would be ended with no pain/effort then I think she might have joined in, but her caution prevailed.

    The full-juice exploit was a useful but dangerous plot device; I'll be glad if Poe and Claude don't remember the details and can't pull it off w/out the Mind/Isaac physically present at the base of a portal.

    Probably a cockroach. Both because of the metamorphosis, and because roaches are associated with being hard to kill.

    Either way, that's totally Kafkaesque, yo.

    So what I'm getting is that the Great Mind-set literally bound Isaac to the doll. Really should have thought of that possibility, but I was overthinking it. Gotta remember to KISS (Knights In Simple Stupid).

    I think the Isaac doll is referencing Binding Of Isaac and not Kafka.

    Your mention of Bunny made me think of Maggionette: what if Isaac's consciousness isn't in the doll itself, but rather the doll is simply acting as a conduit back to Isaac who is still trance-fused in the 8.0?

    A remote interface of sorts for the "Isaac specific portion" of Big Think, much as Maggionette is a "remote access terminal" for Maggie via the G-string between Maggie and Maggionette.

    And would the doll then be limited to contact only with the Isaac aspect of BT (because Isaac's string was used to usurp control of the doll), or could other minds within the BT trance-fusion also be accessed via the doll?

    Just more "blue skying", to be sure...

    Edit for typo and: Would that then make the doll "Little Think"? And would it thereby be a terminal for a "Private Brain eXchange" (PBX) system? ;)
