I think she forgotten that the "little penguin" knows her "other" name and "profession..." And the website that confirms it.

Well spoken.

This confirms my assumption: Hilary is pure evil. Whatever she gets when her world truly comes crashing down on her without hope of redemption, she will deserve in spades.

If she does, I'm willing to contribute.

Well I'm usually the first to admit whem I'm wrong...& I was SO wrong.

Up to this point, I was so sure that Hilary was just some prissy, her-sh*t-don't-stank diva who never grew out of her "cheerleader" years. Petty? Yes. Cruel? Of course. But, aside from breaking hearts & hurting feelings, ultimately harmless. An antagonist, but not a villian. Nothing on the level of Jack or Ozbasic or even the Eldak. I didn't even consider her to be "evil", at least in the common interpretation of that word.

In two strips, that opinon got blown to hell.

In fact, if Hilary Locke were real, she would scare the piss out of me. At this point, I wouldn't put anything past her. I totally can see Hilary trying to burn down the Gang's house (Think about that & look back at the last panel of strip #788 & try not to shiver), or getting Wolfboy to physically hurt Pip (although the last strip seems to hint that he may also have been discarded at this point).

That expression in the last panel? It's not evil, it's psychotic, which is what makes it so terrifying.

Again...I was wrong.

Hilary just set herself up here. Her mistake this time was in not delivering her soul-crushing message in person so that she knows he fully understands the situation once it sinks in.* What she doesn't realize is that Pip won't believe Kat. Kat (and Art) have tried to warn Pip something like this would happen, but he's too much in love with his mental image of Hilary** to listen. Kat can argue until her whiskers fall off, but Pip will insist that Kat must have misheard what Hilary said, if not flat-out made it up. Instead of destroying Pip's self-esteem, Hilary's just guaranteed Pip is going to pester her more, if only to prove Kat wrong. It's going to take a lot more to break Pip's spirit.†

Remember, at this point, only we, the audience, really know what she's been doing. As far as Kat is concerned, Hilary was only seeing Walfaramus before she used Kat as a proxy to break up with Pip. To Pip, this is all just one big misunderstanding.



* Hilary looks borderline insane in that last panel, but I suppose one has to be like that in order to enjoy hurting people.

** Love being a type of drug-induced mental illness, if one wants to be cynical about it.

† In the meantime, Jolly Jack has an opening for a series of gags of Pip trying to romance Hilary.
_________________

Actually, I agree with Dughan's analysis. Often, the worst thing to happen to a person is for them to get all they want. I'd also like to add that Hilary has another foe, time. In time, both Kat's and Hilary's figures will fade, but Kat has other assets she can use – personality, friends, job skills. Hilary relies much too heavily on her body to get what she wants. Unless she manages to secure for herself a marriage with someone with deep pockets (an unlikely proposition), she'll eventually be skating on thin ice.

Psychotic is like a symptom or a prerequisite. Look for more signs.

Borderline insane? At this point that is like saying "She slightly killed 40 people"

"Congratulations Hilary. Was it worth it? Because despite your violent behavior the only thing you've managed to break so far is my heart. Maybe we can just settle for that and call it a day? I guess we both know that isn't going to happen.

We were going to throw a party in honor of your tremendous success. Your boyfriend Pip couldn't come because you dumped him and left him for dead. All of your other friends couldn't come either because you don't have any other friends because of how unlikeable you are. That's what it says on your official testing record. 'Liked by no one. A bitter unlikeable loner whose passing shall not be mourned.' SHALL. NOT. BE. MOURNED. That's exactly what it says here. Very formal. Very official. It also says you were adopted, so that's funny too."

I wonder if that first bout of pity sex took place in Pip's room? I wonder if that silly rabbit realizes that Pip (or one of the little shadow guys) is the sort to have filmed it?

I'm not sure what to think really.

On the one hand, Hilary's 'bitchshell' did cracked for a moment when she found that pony lunchbox and her breakdown could have been sincere. The drugging and manipulation could be a force of habit for her, since she knows no other way to live. And now her plan has worked, she can't tell it to his face and leaves it to Kat with an excuse. There's just something about how forced that grin of hers is.

Then again, she could just be a total redeemable bitch and Pip is a total non-entity to her.

I think we're missing one very important thing here.

The Denizens

Remember them? Cute little guys? Live under the house? Wander around aimlessly inventing cute things until given a direction?

Last time it but one it was helping Jack build a rocket to destroy the world and devastate a significant portion of the neighborhood with laser guns. More recently they built a fleet of TIE Interceptors to help their buddy Pip rescue the Kat and Art.

They like helping their friends.

Imagine what they'd do to someone who broke their friend's heart.

Cyber Corn's suggestion is interesting; I wonder if we will see a stalker!Pip storyline or whether he'll just do something like... I don't know... repost Hillary's er... "past work" to her new employer with a promise that it will follow onto public image servers in one week.

Dughan wrote:Hillary is getting exactly what she deserves.

She has this one wonderful moment of petty triumph at the expense of others, but later in that same day she will be sitting in her apartment utterly alone with no one who wants to share her company. She isn't entirely heartless, as her break-down showed us... and even now that she is "back on top" she has nothing genuine. Her "success" will be the only thing she has to cling to as days become months of empty, meaningless interactions with people who either want to use her, or dislike her company. To badly mangle a line from a wonderful show, "And you’re what? Petty bitch with delusions of standing? A sad little queen of a sad little hill."

She might not fully realize it yet, but every time she is alone with herself, it will become more and more clear to her. Eventually, no one will want to be around her, save for a quick shag... and even those people will be as loathsome and toxic as herself. Eventually, she will be forced to face the fact that anyone who ever could have cared for her, that anyone who could have loved her... she has driven away through her actions and her choices. In reality, people like that often turn to various drugs (including alcohol) to deal with that truth. I doubt the series would take such a dramatic turn as displaying her as some washed up alky who only looks good after a 5th of jack and too many beers, but it wouldn't be far from the realm of the possible.

People like she is meant to represent are often driven by a feeling of inadequacy and loneliness, coupled with the inability to trust anyone due to the assumption that most people, deep down, must be as horrible and petty as they are. In all truth, they do not deserve contempt or scorn, they do not deserve anger or hatred... they deserve pity. What Pip will suffer will suck, don't get me wrong; but unlike Hilary, he has friends around him who care about him and love him. He has the ability to grow from this, however painful such a growth might be. Hilary will have to hit "rock bottom" on her own, and have nothing to fall back on before she has a chance to grow as a being. Don't hate her, pity her, for she is pitiful indeed.

I did, for a few years between becoming old enough to actually think about the religious doctrines I'd been programmed with and growing up enough to move on from the whole morass of stupid.

I'm also still cheering for a remarkably devious and effective play from the brilliant and stunning Ms Locke.

The two are (probably) not related.

The one thing Hilary relies on to get ahead in life is her sexy body. She doesn't have ANYTHING else to fall back on. Whatever revenge one might get on her, she can always just seduce the right people and come back out on top again. Losing her good looks really is the worst thing that could happen to her.

Somehow I feel that direct revenge wouldn't be so poetic and just stoops to Hilary's level. I'm sure something will happen to her though.

Meanwhile, I'm sure Pip's ebay account has sorted itself out whilst he was busy and he's got a store full of good junk to resell. Pony lunchbox included.
