      Obviously you are not a Jaded Oldie Many years ago there was a program called Dallas that for a whole season had one of the main characters as dead. This did not go down well with fans, so the writers retconned the whole thing by having that whole season being nothing more than a dream by the dead characters wife. In the last episode of that season she wakes up, goes to the shower and finds him a alive. The Character was played by Patrick Duffy, who also played 'The Man From Atlantis'. Ergo, Webbed Hands, Patrick and Shower. Pucks Demon inside was nothing but a dream. It's no fun when you have to explain things

      I remember Dallas, but never actually watched it.

      I thought they left it rather vague as to why Eugene was in hell? Was there specific mention of Puck being demon canned goods?

      Not in the actual issues, no. It was mentioned in interviews and online and stuff.

      I now think Mac is the traitor. Reading this thread, it makes sense that he would go the Government line. And Puck will be the imprisoned hero. I think Mac will be back to good in the end. Hope Heather kicks his arse!

      The whole 'Snowbird being a demi-God and thus not interested in mortal politics' (paraphrased) comments that have been mentioned in various interviews has me considering her now.

      Doesn't follow, though, since she's spent her entire life (all six years of it) on Earth. Specifically, Canada.
      Somebody as bound to the land as she is would take a great interest, I'd think, in the running of it.

      "I wouldn’t be surprised if someday some fishermen caught a big shark and cut it open, and there inside was a whole person. Then they cut the person open, and in him is a little baby shark. And in the baby shark there isn’t a person, because it would be too small. But there’s a little doll or something, like a Johnny Combat little toy guy-something like that."

      i think its going to be heather. fvl said he jumped on with issue #5 which was when mac was still alive and the leader of the team, he also said that he wanted to really develop mac's character and establish him as a strong leader. so i doubt its mac.

      heather would make sense, because cody knows and trusts her and she probably will try and be alpha spy from the inside.

      just a hunch.

      Northstar. Anything to get his boyfriend back.

      Aurora: May be harboring the traitor and not even know it.
      Heather: It would be one hell of a way to get out from under Mac's shadow.
      Mac: Is still wrapped in the friggin' flag.
      Marrina: Plodex mood swings? (Yeah, reaching for that one)
      Northstar: Has, according to interviews, lost everything and will do "anything" to get it back. Also has a history of telling AF to stuff it anyway.
      Puck: Possessed by a demon, which means he'll likely take any means to an end. Alternatively, time in Hell might change a guy.
      Sasquatch: Long, loooooooong history of making well-intentioned, poorly considered decisions.
      Snowbird: Demi-goddess. "Not interested in mortal politics". May have much larger concerns than team loyalty.

      Shaman's about the only one who doesn't seem to have an obvious reason to betray the team, which of course, makes him extra likely to be culprit.

      I'm going with it being a new personality of Aurora's, a male one she isn't necessarily aware of.

      So true!

      Maybe more likely now that it's an ex-member who betrays them and makes them out to be bad guys... Persuasion, Manikin, Windshear, a lot out there. But one wonders....
