So, she's either the ghost of a robot (the unquiet spirit of a once functioning robot), or a ghost robot (a robot that was manufactured in the image of a ghost). I think morty should make a guest appearance to sort this all out.

Gosh! Parley really went all out there... I'm actually feeling sorry for Jeanne... (except that she was about to kill them all, so I guess Parley is doing well) I guess the Ghost of the Annan waters had already forgotten what is is like to take a beating! I wonder how she will react now.

Well, Parley's "Bip & Pommel Strike" strategy may have knocked the fight out of Jeanne or merely succeeded in making Jeanne really angry. If the former, maybe Jeanne will acknowledge defeat and stop fighting; if the latter, she may go into an ethereal frenzy. Tune in Monday to find out.

This is horrifying. Do these kids not understand that they have very little idea what's going on, or that any mistakes they make here may well be irreparable? You don't risk permanent damage to a soul without a lot more caution than this. Are their egos really so inflated?

Jonesy

I believe in dbz terms this is the moment when the other guy is seemingly weak and gets their asses kicked. Next page is when Jeanne turns into a super-etherian and Parley shall have bricks in her underpants.

2 Dec 2016 | 5:21 AM
Mrs. On-a-phone

Oh but then it might be more like anime where I end up wondering sometimes (not always), 'Why are they talking instead of fighting when it doesn't make any sense to do so? They could have won if only they didn't wait so long.'

You know, this has got to be the most horrible way to save someone's soul that I have ever seen. "Killing" Jeanne to rescue her (and her love) from an eternity of bondage to guard that bridge and river. Brutal, Tom, Brutal.

2 Dec 2016 | 7:49 AM
DS

Is there a particular reason that Parley refuses to use that sword for its intended combat purpose? She's gambling with the lives of her friends not ending it outright, even if it wasn't her intention to do so when they got down there. Or is this just sort of a "Batman Beyond" style censorship where a character can hold a sword because it looks awesome but they can't actually use it on anybody because that would be too violent?

Even though she's fighting a homicidal ghost that would kill her in an instant, Parley only hits Jeanne with the hilt... While I feel like this could be very dangerous, I approve of her relative kindness

2 Dec 2016 | 9:10 AM

3 and out! Go Parley. Maybe Jeanne will see that she was only hit, not slashed or stabbed? That it is a tactic of disable not destroy?

2 Dec 2016 | 11:08 AM
BritishRabbit

@DS - She's using it for its intended purpose, the technique she's using is Mordhau which is wielding the sword by the blade and weaponizing the pommel and the guard. The pommel acts as a counterweight to the blade so there is a LOT of weight in it so it will /hurt/ if you're smacked by it and there's a good chance broken bones will result. It was a technique intended to enable the wielder to bash their way through armour.

Another commenter made me realize how awesome of a fighting game this could make (in the genre of Marvel Vs. Capcom or Soul Caliber etc.) It's incredibly easy to envision special attacks and fighting styles for at least 10 characters off the top of my head (Jones can't be a playable character tho)

k so Parley's my girl, and I'm still not prepared to put it past Tom to mess her up good, but damn this is hard to watch. poor rag doll Jeanne

I get the feeling Jeanne is going to get pissed and reveal she's been going easy on Parley this whole time

This fight scene looks straight out of an anime.

2 Dec 2016 | 12:18 PM
BTW

She ain't afraid of no ghost.

So THAT'S how you help someone! To think I've been getting it so wrong all these years.

Next pages - Jeanne stands up, giving the still-in-the-air Parley an evil Kubrick Stare: "You think you're the only one who can teleport?" Her game-face emerges (Page 778) and she's up in the air behind Parley, her sword protruding through Parley's chest with the latter's eyes wide in shock. A one-hit KO.

Readers claiming Jeanne is faking, don't forget Jeanne's sword is normally attached to her...

2 Dec 2016 | 1:54 PM

BUT also Jeanne can summon her sword so taking it away from her would not work.

2 Dec 2016 | 1:56 PM

Parley has no face, because she was so angry that in these scene they had to cut it out, just to protect your dreams.

Jeanne be like "THIS ISN'T EVEN MY FINAL FORM!"

I think George over leveled for this boss fight.

2 Dec 2016 | 3:55 PM

so, who else thinks this is just form 1 where she is still groggy (read: temporarily sane) after the illusion, and she returns to her avatar of death form in form 2?

BTW, Parley is braver than just about anything. She knew how badazz Jeanne was, and still went at her with cold strategy and courage.
...I hope Jeanne is just stunned, for just long enough. Git dat sword!

Suddenly, a bolt of green energy spears down from above! It strikes Andrew, blasting him into the river! Parley is trapped, and soon dies in her grief and despair. Her ghost becomes the new, even more undefeatable guardian of the river!

I got it wrong last time. Parley is clearly drill shining.

I've seen this coming ever since she first blipped. In other news, some epic level punnery going on here.

Don't actually use the sword for it's edge or anything, just hit her with the pommel. It's not like we want to help her die or protect people from her or anything. Also, another pseudo-cliffhanger for the weekend.

Jeanne better not say ONE WORD about fairness after murdering people with her crazy ghost-sword powers for centuries.
