Commentary for May 8, 2020:

It occurred to while writing this scene in the script that Nack the Weasel has, however inadvertently, saved the day. So... does that make him a Deus Ex Nackina...?

Iíll see myself out.

Anyway, you might recall in Chapter 6ís commentaries that I mentioned Evelyn would not be in Eonís World Vol. 1 for long. Truth be told, I didnít intend for her to be Eonís World, period for long, because I had actually planned for her to die here. But I went back and forth on this a bit and the seed of a story idea for Vol. 2 started to take root in my brain and, in the end, I spared her. But this is the end of her story in Vol. 1. If and when you see again, it will be in Vol. 2 and what sheíll get up to there remains to be seen.

In the 2018 version of this story I had Raikou -- the character I created Evelyn to replace -- unceremoniously killed off during the fight. It was actually quite barbaric, really, as I had Delta stab her through the back, taking her completely by surprise. But I didnít want to repeat that this time. Yes, Delta is absolutely ready, willing, and able to kill an enemy if doing so will save billions of lives -- she more so any of the heroes in this chapter, really -- but I didnít really want that to be the lasting impression sheíd leave at what is technically her first appearance in this series, especially when you wonít see her again in Vol. 1 until season 5 at the earliest and sheís going to be about six years younger then. Time travel!

But yeah, I decided to preserve the kind of anticlimactic end to the fight, but decided to make it be Nack shooting her. Evelynís spent their entire partnership treating him like heís just hired muscle, constantly underestimating his craftiness, and thatís finally come back to bite her in the butt. But I didnít want to kill her, either. Evelyn Blackwood is not a nice character, but she is someone who could be redeemed, which is why Iím giving her that chance.

Oh yeah, by the way, this is the 250th page of Eon's World Vol. 1.
