Trying to understand what's going on in Bubbles' mind. I think that, first and foremost, she is driven by loyality:
  • That is one of the reasons she joined the army in the first place. Loyality to your country.
  • That is why she was hit hard when her platoon was mostly destroyed/killed. Loyality to you brothers/sisters in arms.
  • CW helped her find another career of sorts after she was (presumably) honorably discharged from the army. CW does not need any special `hold' over Bubbles. In spite of all the Hmm's, she still feels loyality towards CW.
  • This was very recently manifested, when Bubbles tipped CW about officer Basilisk behind the door.
  • Faye has also helped her, and she acknowledges that. Bubbles is also loyal to the close friend and coworker Faye has become.

Torn between conflicting senses of loyality leaves Bubbles in a very bad place. I am not sure how well she can handle this situation.

About time Faye's violent outbursts cost her.

How do I think this will work out?

I think that Jeph is going to have two strips with Faye and Corpse Witch making their cases (with a huge side-order of threats and innuendo on CW's part - She may also try to frighten Faye off with a few revelations about Bubbles' less-salubrious past). Then, after Bubbles (or possibly May, just to shake things up) summing up on Thursday, we'll have Bubbles making her own points about what she wants (as opposed to what Faye and Corpse Witch want) on Friday. The decision will be next Monday.

Wow! Corpse Witch's chassis must be very lightly constructed to have deformed that badly!

Pintsize dents that easily, and is a military chassis.

I might borrow mere elements of that pun.

Someone at a party was discussing a concussion she got by walking into a door.

Her doctor, she said, had asked if she had done it again since.

Straight lines like that don't come along just every year.

There was a quick quip of "One does not simply walk into more doors".

There's not much to add to the debate about Bubbles' reaction that hasn't been said except this: The familiar is very reassuring and very tempting. This is especially the case if it is a refuge against a world that's not really welcoming (either overtly or simply due to your own personal issues - Bubbles has experienced both). Bubbles has been... hiding at the skate park for a long time, I think. She's been hiding there so long that I suspect she has a hard time imagining being comfortable and safe anywhere else. She now has to balance just what various things in her life mean to her and it is not a decision that she could make quickly or easily.

I will also add that we need to remember that Bubbles seems to be a pacifist (based on her view of 'violence' as a thing, as expressed when she and Faye were watching a fight). She might have been upset by Faye using violence.

The decision to punch CW was so rash it needs ointment.

What makes you think that it was a 'decision'?

In other words it was incredibly stupid. Bubbles is right not to have immediately gone with Faye. I only say immediately in case Jeph pulls a fast one tomorrow and they both tell CW to piss off, hope that doesn't happen though.

Inclined to agree. CW gave a reasonable-ish warning last time they brought her in, and stepped it up after they caused a cop to sniff around because May wanted a new paint-job on the cheap... sorry, "came for help". I can't remember if AI logic/bottom-line thinking is different to humans in-canon, but a crooked business is still a business.
