“AR-ROOOOO! AR-ROOOOO! AR-ROOOOOOOOOOOO!!!” Daisy bayed again and again—no one tried to stop her.
And finally—in the Great Beyond… Cujo had been on her daily rounds, making sure the new arrivals were acclimating to the Great Beyond, when she noticed an unexpected arrival at the gate.
She quickly transported herself there and…
“Why are you here, Alpha-Jack?”
“Because I’m DEAD?”
Season 7—Chapter 10—Unclaimed—Episode 1:
Susie & Company…Boomer’s friends knew the IRL Boomer was fine (and likely drinking coffee in front of his computer) and as expected, his “body” began to fade, but what DID surprise them—Pal also began to fade. “Cujo is at work here I think.”
“That’s a good guess, Beta Andrew,” Daisy was a bit embarrassed after her unnecessary death-song, and had calmed a bit, “At worst, he has written himself out of the blog.”
“Pah!” Susie snorted, “He’s done THAT before—it never sticks.”
“But why Pal?”
Susie laughed, “I suspect he is on his way to enjoying oats at my horse farm in 2012 Danger Bay. We need to get back to Wichita with our prisoners.”
Mac & Company…There were only two survivors and they were alive only because they went into the brush along the side of the road, “We didn’t kill nobody marshal, Ralphie and me never even fired our guns.”
“That’s right, marshal, me an Clem is only here ’cause they threatened our families—said they’d kill ’em if we didn’t ride with them.”
Deputy Cooper studied their faces and body-language as they spoke, “They’re not lying, Carl.”
“You think, Sarah?” Mac rumbled as he looked the two over, scowling, “You fellas willing to help us?”
“But, our families…”
“Aw Clem, they’re in hiding, we need to do something, else they’ll just keep this war going. Watcha want us to do?”
“Lead us to the Jones ranch, for starters.”
Meanwhile—in the Great Beyond… “This is most strange, Alpha-Jack. You remain semi-transparent and sepia-toned. This suggests there are other forces at work.”
At that moment—there was yet another arrival—one that Cujo WAS expecting; Randolph Kidd.
“Hello Randy,” Boomer greeted, surprising himself a little, “I’m jealous, you’re solid & in color!”
“Wh-where am I?”
