Leif & Thorn: IN SPACE! #17

Leif & Thorn: IN SPACE! #17 published on 3 Comments on Leif & Thorn: IN SPACE! #17

Thorn: If you lost him, while I was called away on a mission for two weeks . . .

Del: Certainly not, darling. This is your Leif’s cell — they must have simply removed the wrong cellmate. Wait here while I fetch him, I won’t be a moment.

Kale: Hey. Hey, you’re Thorn, right?

Thorn: Commander Thorn, yes.

Kale: The guy who rescued Leif off a crumbling Empire derelict . . . took him on a bunch of fun space adventures . . . then found out he had a control chip in his neck, and immediately turned him in?

Thorn: . . . Is that how he told you it went?

Kale: He didn’t tell me much of anything. But I know how the Empire works. They would’ve killed him! Or — they had something else on him! He feels terrible for lying to you — he has real feelings for you, and you’d be an idiot to take that for granted!

Thorn: I’ll keep it in mind when I testify on his behalf tomorrow, yeah. Even though the part where we had sex and then he told me he was an Empire-planted spy was a little rough.

Kale: . . . oh.

Thorn: Sounds like you might want to do a little testifying for him yourself.

Kale (thinking): Is that what they’re calling it these days . . .

Okay, I admit it, I don’t get the last panel. Anyone care to explain it?

my interpretation:

Thorn is saying, “I am noting that you have really positive feelings about Leif and would defend him in court if you could” (with perhaps a bit of…suspicion, jealousy, something like that? in the noting that Kale also has strong feelings for Leif)

and Kale is taking that as a double entendre, aka interpreting what Thorn is saying as “Wow you’d really like to have sex with Leif too, wouldn’t you”
