Gil Thorp, 4/19/23
Oh, were you upset that Gil Thorp seemed to have dropped the Great Vape Caper storyline? Well, it seems Toby and his pals are still out there perpetrating their elaborate and largely innocuous vape fundraising scam, and now Toby’s worried that Gil has gotten wind of it (the metaphorical wind in this case blowing a huge metaphorical cloud of cotton candy-flavored vape into Gil’s face). Anyway, I guess the whole point of this awkwardly worded exchange is to give Gil a chance to plant a seed of doubt in Toby’s mind and also declare that he’s fully straightedge, but I do wonder what exactly happened during this hospital visit in what appears to be the middle of the afternoon that has Toby thinking Gil may be too fucked up to drive.

The way Wilbur phrases things in panel two, it sounds like Estelle rejected him down via text before he even had a chance to once again shoot his shot, which I love. Like I certainly hope that the moment the desire to “get back with Stell” had formed in his mind, his ex felt the hair go up on the back of her neck, texted him “I’M VERY HAPPY WITH SOMEBODY ELSE RIGHT NOW WILBUR”, and then immediately blocked his number.
