…. well alright then.
Back in the alley, Peter has barely moved.
He was mobbed by three women all at once.
Apparently looking like a “bad boy” earned him some brownie points with the female population.
Or Pauline just has no taste, an answer I will also accept.
(Note from the future: Peter is foreshadowing something that isn’t even remotely ready to be queued yet it’s so far out. Out of the blue he starts a new relationship with Pauline, wherein his current girlfriend, River McIrish, calls it off. StoryProgression implied a messy breakup with River and a passionate courting of Pauline. …. well, alright then.)
