"Like that time you accidentally started a robot cult. Or when you got distracted by sweet make-outs and wound up forever altering that same cult."

If this isn't a case of Checkov's Gun, I dunno what else is.

To be fair, that term is much much older than Tvtropes.

Siddell's doing a good job establishing threats for the new arc, but I still don't know what the motivations and stakes are. That said we're only a few pages in and he's getting more decompressed with his storytelling as time goes by. It could be August before we have the new conflict laid out.

Sorry Annie, your dad is just one more social mistake away from getting that arrow lodged in his rectum.

Or, like, I guess Coyote might find out there's a new kid in town and go all American Gods for the next few chapters, I dunno.

The great irony of the trope is that the later you get into Chekhov's plays, the less likely the gun is to go off, or to make a difference in its firing. In The Cherry Orchard, his last play, a character actually pulls out a gun on stage and says "I always carry a loaded pistol so that I could kill myself at any time." Then he puts it away and nothing ever happens with it again.

Dinner with her father! Will Annie finally call him out for being a giant turd? Will Tony ever crack a smile? Will Elgamore finally give Tony the whupping we all desire? Will we ever see Renard again?

All this and more! ...Eventually.

"My Dinner With Tony" will match the Jeanne conflict in its scope and include multiple full page splashes. I will throw my work computer out the window three months into the arc.

This must be the chapter where Kat plays through both of the Shadow Man games for N64.
