    Wonder how many of these things are on the airship. If the giant weasel has a taste for bugs as well, between him and the jagers, they should be able to handle a small to moderate infestation. Poor little weasels. They never stood a chance.

    Recognizing that Girl Genius has never shied away from tragedy, that was a pretty bleak update. Poor weasels. Poor girl. Poor captain.

    I was worried when Agatha was named the Heterodyne that it would become a bit stale but it hasn't given me reason to worry!

    Todays page was quite shocking, although drama features heavily in the comic, the main panel today was a sudden stop moment in the middle of the regular flow of action thats been continuing for a while now, without disrupting the pace (I think/hope)

    Holy poop, I think I see what's going on here!

    The weasels... Doctor Bren mutated a brood queen to make them! They're from slaver stock, but mutated... That's why they can detect them. That's why they're deadly enemies... They've got a lot of the same basic stuff.

    Oh man, if the jaegers kill that furry queen, then it's game over, man. No more weasels.

    While I agree all that is plausible, I disagree with your conclusion. Even if they are a blend of warrior wasp and weasel, Tarvek is quite clearly conviced they can be bred directly, and the Hunters have not pointed out otherwise. Unless they were kept completely in the dark about weasel reproduction, they consider the big one useless. Maybe it was the original mother, but they don't believe they need her further.

    Quite, it seems to indicate that Lurezia now have at least one hive engine up and running around Mechanicsburg. Although one might hope that the bugs are just survivors from the original infestation that the Baron kept alive for examination.

    Not a big problem? But those things come out of a hive engine, they're to protect the queen. This implies rather strongly that there is an active hive engine somewhere either on Castle Wulfenbach (did he repair the old one?) or under Mechanicsburg somewhere (the bugs could have come on the ship after it crashed). Either way, if there is a hive and it produces a swarm in Mechanicsburg its populous will turn on Agatha, and that would be bad.

    It IS possible that these are a couple of leftover bugs from the attack on Castle Wulfenbach that were put on the escaping zeppelin to complicate things, but that would be fairly anti-climatic.

    OR maybe they were captured bugs kept by the weasel handlers for experiments, or to help make the weasels in the first place. Then they escaped in the crash and they're coming to kill the remaining weasels. That makes some sense.

    1) They're wasp-eaters and wasp-detectors and thus the one weakness Lucrezia's plan has, which explains why Tarvek wants them and 2) It wouldn't surprise me if the minion in charge of them started to care for them as if they were her pets.

    I got the impression that these were captive Warrior Wasps ( its the slaver wasps that are the real threat), possibly there to help train the weasels

    I dunno, I think it's more plausible than you're giving it credit for. I don't see any indications the hunters consider the big one useless, only the short comment about it getting loose. On the other hand, the pose Big Weasel is drawn in is almost identical to the pose the Hive Queen was in, their body shapes are oddly similar, and they make very similar shrieking noises when being attacked. All circumstantial evidence, but the tinfoil in this particular hat is pretty sturdy.

    Yeah, I too got some odd hive engine vibes from the mega-weasel the moment I saw it. Also the guy in charge of the project seemed to think it was important.

    "I don't know why Bren even kept it." While the hive engine vibes are evident (though I personally think they are just Phil's art limitation vibes), the hunters know of no reason to keep the giant weasel around. Maybe it can fly.

    Yes. The wasp-sniffing weasels have had 8 legs since their first appearance...probably supposed to indicate they've been spliced with spider DNA or something.

    (my emphasis)

    There is also the much more revelatory comment "I don't know why Bren even kept it..."

    If they kept it around to breed more of the small weasels, I'm sure the captain would've known.
