Another Hannelore mystery! Where is she going all dressed up like that? It certainly isn't what she normally wears to work; it's almost formal wear!

I suppose that she might be going to meet her mother for dinner or something. If so, that might be interesting. As malignant a character Beatrice is, I can't see her tolerating a small fish in her pond thinking it is big enough to bully one of her daughter's friends. That could make the last few days of her life... interesting for Corpse Witch.

Option 2 is that Hannelore is going on a date which isn't unthinkable. You just wonder who would she be dating who was willing to handle her mental health needs.

Or she may be incapable of helping because Corpse Witch is a part of the Robo Nostra an AI mafia that keeps to their own rackets, but if provoked can be a real nightmare especially for people who transfer a lot of money electronically.  As ruthless as Beatrice Chatman is she might decline helping because she knows better than to attack such a bees nest and she might not want to alienate people she contracts to do her dirty work from time to time.

she's going to church.

since her deus ex machina was a non-starter, she's cutting out the middle-machine and going straight to the top bloke.

Oh? Now that's an interesting thing Hannelore said: Station doesn't want to try because of what "might be lurking in Bubbles' head". That's the first time that it's been implied that some AIs are afraid of Bubbles' experiences.
I may have misinterpreted it, but I took it to mean that Station suspects any probing he is capable of could be harmful to Bubbles! May be Station suspects that CW installed some malware that could be triggered by a serious decryption effort?

OTOH. May be HannerMom can help? If robofighting is good business, she could be interested. And CW won't say 'No' to an offer she cannot refuse. Bubbles might actually want to continue working there, if there were no coercion to do so.
Then again - may be HannerMom *IS* the Big Fish? Not really her style, I know. May be the skate park just became a part of her conglomerate in some other deal?

(I just noticed the comic numbers in the thread title were wrong, and corrected them.  Because of the way the web site addresses the comics, the Bembo week had numbers in the same sequence.)

Dang!   I missed that Paul, thanks.  :)

I wonder if Hanners has a Summer House on the Moon  :-D

Ooh, Gary points!
If I wanted to distract the likes of Officer Baslisk, I would definitely spread rumors about Robo Nostra.

I was wondering that too! What if they went to HannerMom to have her try to leverage some sort of deal with CW and she turns out to be CW's boss? Wouldn't that be a kick in the head! (He says, with fear and trepidation.)

I can't imagine HannerMom being CW's direct boss. HM controls a tremendous amount of money and the "skate park" is not just small potatoes. It's floor sweepings from the machine used to chop potatoes for hash browns.

There would have to be a great many levels in between them.

Unless it's something like... the "skate park" is HM's sick hobby.
