Sooooo here it is at last, the final part of Ron's confession! Probably not quite as dramatic as some of you were hoping for or expecting but it does pose the question of course, did Ron intend to murder Laura or just scare her as he claims? It's something we will never know for sure as Ron is the only one who can answer that question but what follows next will be the consequences good old feisty Sarah is now going to force him to face.

As for the strange appearance of the woman who disturbed them, I guess she could have been a gypsy who wandered in from a nearby campsite or even been just some scruffy old woman looking for a lost dog, who can say? But… if it is Lenore, has she really been stalking Sarah all this time just to seek justice for Laura?

Linn, as you can see, it seems you guessed right about Lenore ;)

Lenore?! I didn't see that coming! Well played, Sare. Well played.

@kidcthulhu:Hehe it could just be any old gypsy woman of course. ;)

Well, well, well . . . I wasn't expecting that.

Yep, the crow and the random scruffy woman - all coincidence. (Well, that's what I'm going with.)

And as for Ron . . . had he really hired two hit men? My knowledge of the Underworld is limited, but finding two thugs to put the frighteners on someone is one thing, finding two men willing to kill a young woman in cold blood . . . that's a whole new level of nasty.

Talking of nasty, was Ron just intent on terrifying Laura, did he get carried away and in the heat of the moment decided to silence her for good? Or was he planning murder all along?

As Sky says the only one who can answer those questions is Ron, and I doubt we'll ever get an honest answer from him on this subject.

Oh and I did like Ron's line "I was only trying to scare you hon!" Yeah, Ron only trying to scare her, don't worry you can still tell yourself you're not a bad man really! -grr-

But no, this has been a very dramatic strip, very nicely drawn and it's great to see the crow again.

@Fruitbat44: I loved this because you sum up the next page very nicely as you will see.

@skyangel: haha oh wow, Good for Laura that her protector showed up. I'm not sure if Ron would actually gone through with killing her, but either way this do indeed make things quite a bit more complex for him. When it comes to the wild guess, i knew the crow lady had to be mixed up into the current time-plot somehow and its a pretty cool twist, but we still dont know if Laura got to her on purpose or just accidently summoned her- or even if she KNOWS this woman is a ghost in this page, maybe she is unaware of being protected. Either way a very cool twist, and quite heart warming that Leonore is looking out after her like her child or something.

@Linn: I think you are probably as romantic as I am. I like to think Lenore stepped in with the aim of stopping something terrible from happening. If her spirit really does haunt Carlingford then she possibly was able to listen in on some of Ron's phone calls. I like to think that anyway, but of course in reality I have to leave the idea open for those who would rather keep fantasy at arms length.

I do hope Ron gets some form of comeuppance from this. Maybe being chased into a pit of concrete by a flock of crows.... He is obviously a complete git.

@Lordcholmondywarner: haha I loved this too! He is a git and what follows will be his punishment, though probably not as sensational as a flock of crows pecking him to death or otherwise. ;)

Frame 6. The bits of England I grew up in were the South and South-West. It still seems strange to me that in East Anglia and the East Midlands, an arresting WPC will say 'now am I going to have to put the handcuffs on you sweetheart?' And in frame 6 Ron is calling the girl he threatened with a concrete burial 'hon'.

This is a usage that I think is only East Anglia and East Midlands - but also Bristol ('Ello there moi lovely!).

It strikes me as weird.

I am used to Londoners half my age referring to me as 'my son' and Parisians calling me 'mon cher' (my dear), but 'sweetheart' and 'darling' between heterosexual males takes a bit of getting used to.

@ohanyname!: I did enjoy using 'hon' because it's a way of showing how conflicted Ron is internally. On one hand he's blinded by his anger at her mother, and clouded by his wife calling him an easy touch, yet still a small part of him sees her as the child he wanted so much to feel was his.
