Re: Evil Gil

In retrospect, there's a good sense Gil might not have done it if it came to the clinch. However, I suspect that him going into the Madness Place at all was what convinced Wooster this was Serious and Dangerous and that Gil could be Klaus-like if he found it necessary.

Re: Evil Gil

Important point to that scene: that was a staged manifestation of the Madness Place. Gil has enough control over his Sparky insanity to go from "lovestruck, genocidal lunatic" to "regretful man saying quietly goodbye to his good friend". For a madboy, that's a *lot* of self-restraint.

"Good But Not Nice" is a defining trope in Girl Genius. All of the major protagonists--including Agatha herself--have shown themselves capable of incredible viciousness and directed brutality when need be. The Foglios have created a setting with a lot of moral ambiguity.
