A U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortress from the 20th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., leads a formation of two F-16 Fighting Falcons from the 18th Aggressor Squadron, Eielson AFB, Alaska; two Japan Air Self-Defense Force F-2 fighters from the 6th Tactical Fighter Squadron, Tsuiki Air Base, Japan; two U.S. Navy EA-6B Prowlers from Electronic Attack Squadron 136, Carrier Air Wing 5, Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan; and a JASDF E-2C Hawkeye from the 601st Squadron, Misawa Air Base, Japan, over Guam during exercise Cope North.
Just finished Hawkeye #15 (THANK YOU SNOWY) and Birdie pointed out something truly mind-fucky.
Kate’s dad’s the one trying to buy the building, right?
Kate’s dad was trying to get her out of town. They don’t have a very close relationship, but when she was upset and needed to get out for a while, he asked her to come with him ON HIS BOAT. Where he could’ve, y'know, controlled whether she could even get to land. She said no, went to the other side of the country, and the MOMENT SHE ARRIVED AND NO SOONER, her credit card ends up cancelled.
Madame Masque knew where she would be, and knew about the card, and we’re led to believe that she had the card cancelled, or at least had the guy at the hotel say it was. But the fact is that it’s never actually SAID that Masque was the one who did it. She just knows about it.
Clownface McHitman had been gathering info on Clint, obviously. He had pictures of Clint’s girls. He’s MET KATE, and works for her father. Her father stands to earn a LOT of money on this project and LOSE a lot of money if it falls through, same as the Russians.
You guys - what if Kate’s dad was the one who cancelled her card once he had word she’d hit California? What if Kate’s dad is - if not ‘in on it’, which I doubt - at least AWARE that they’ve been trying to solve this problem… we’ll say “unconventionally”, and that his daughter was a regular visitor to the building? And that she’d be in danger if she happened to be there when they decided to solve it?
“It comes down to reality And it’s fine with me ‘cause I’ve let it slide Don’t care if it’s Chinatown or on Riverside I don’t have any reasons I’ve left them all behind I’m in a New York state of mind.”
