some of the dialogue during this scene hasn't changed!

Floating face down?

I'm sure Rob was just winded while practicing his breath stroke in the sewers. Because that's what you do when you're a delinquent who's kicked out of the local pool during off season.

face down. Rob just loves to swim.

Was Robin dead before he wound up in the storm drain or after?
How did concussion Jerry even find him there? Unless he knew of the spot beforehand being used as a hideout maybe?
What are they gonna do about the body? It'll be too suspicious for Dylan to report having found the body.

Can't wait to find out.

It is hard for me to tell but maybe he got flooded and drowned.
Which was the last storm? The day of the murder? Because if yes then Rob disappeared that day and I doubt he would drown.
If there was another storm, his hideout flooded and he died.

Unless that is not possible at all. I have never been inside a drain before :D

That is not what I expected. Is he… is he dead? Or undead? Floating and couldn't see his face sorta implies at least the former, and in this universe that could mean the latter.

Or maybe he just really loves swimming and doesn't care about dry clothes or sanitation. Yeech, that's almost worse than being dead.

(Or it's someone else wearing his track suit, though that shaven head is pretty distinctive and it doesn't take CSI: Miami to tell you that dressing the corpse in your clothes is just not so great a way to hide your crime, like dude, this is Murder 101 stuff, c'mon)

Eheheh it's a surprise death! all my favourite characters must die >:D

Not that Robin's necessarily the only one who's got that tracksuit, nor can Dylan actually see him form there...

Oh crap, I see it now—first you're going to kill Jeremy and we'll be all WAIT WHAT and you'll be all "hahaha i am a monster i care about no one" and we're like NOOOO and you're like "now watch while the cute goth girl dies slowly" and then WE all die and your comic is done and you and George R. R. Martin throw a big WE KILLED EVERYONE party.

I see right through you, Moth! ಠ_ಠ

"I'm one hundred percent sure it's probably him" is one of my favourite lines ever. It just feels like such a teenagery thing to say. I love not-mean Jerry.

Ahaha I liked that line too, it was even the same in the original version :') I used to be iffy about Jerry but he's grown on me, now I really like writing him!

That would imply Rob is dead for a while now. Probably drowned but I cannot say that for sure. It is hard for me to say how full the drain is? Looks like the water is all the way up but since Jerry is suggesting going down, there probably is another way?
He cannot mean Dylan would just dive in and swim deep down...

But what is a possibly dead Rob good for anyway... You sure as heck cannot drag him out of there. That would be suicide.

Dylan knows he killed Jerry.
Jerry probably thinks Rob did it.
Your killer is dead floating down there so you should be fine.
Something is not okay here...

Whaat everything here is completely lovely and normal ;D

Ah, Jerry was probably just being cheeky about Dylan going down there. He probably wouldn't want to get his trainers wet anyway.

"This seems awfully convenient, Jerry. I smell a rat, and it's not the one climbing up your pant-leg."


Seriously though, how did Jerry cover so much ground in a day, and what led him to a storm drain of all places? He doesn't strike me as being a particularly astute observer of anything, let alone interested in solving mysteries, so despite whatever his level of intelligence might be, how'd he figure this out, or is Jerry really just that lucky?

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, and it's not just Jerry's corpse. :P

Maybe Jerry is just much smarter then he seems! ;) That or the storm drain is well known destination of some sorts

"100% sure it's PROBABLY him." <-- That's a great line, I love it.
