Of course it's a trap: Most things in this situation are traps, including the idea that they should be fighting at all.

As an editor I'm professionally expected to point at Merriam-Webster as the reference dictionary of choice for American vocabulary, but I don't know that their website is worth using unless you block all the javascript.

heh heh yeah, the "fuggin trap" is the link I gave you

Yeah, false dichotomies are kinda destroying America right now.

Gonna switch to a little bit of back-and-forth with another scene as everything goes sideways with Tona's plans.

So yeah, there will be a great deal of throwing down, but [redacted]

Whelp, he doesn't seem particularly happy about the whole thing...

I dunno about you, but it wouldn't make my day either to have some weirdo with taser fists call me out for a duel to the death.

Are those literal knives of metaphorical ones of an even more destructive nature?

Captain Happy is also known as Captain Stabby...
anonymous coward 15th Jan 2018, 11:47 PM edit delete reply
He is, but I like to give Captain Stabby enough credit for wits and imagine he wouldn't show up in person in front of the goon squad with literal knives and insufficient backup. He's not some teenager with more hormone-driven courage than sense, hot to duel just because, is he?

Gonna take a couple pages, but you'll see what he has in mind.

I like the idea of single combat to solve problems, but in practice it can be wildly unpredictable. Look at Game of Thrones.
anonymous coward 15th Jan 2018, 11:54 PM edit delete reply
Legal trials are pretty similar, except with a lot less brevity and a lot more paperwork, hypocrisy and creative storytelling.

Agreed... the idea is typically better than the result. Man, some of those duels in GoT were predictably idiotic.

Uh oh... Didn't anyone ever tell Captain Happy that it's rather unwise to bring knives to an electro-fist fight...?
(Granted, it's quite rare that this topic comes up in everyday conversation.)

Also, it's interesting that Sam can determine someone's identity by smelling. Either the Guy Fawkes mask guy emits an unforgettable stench or wears an unmistakable perfume.
(Or he has alcohol breath, and by "you" Sam actually means a brand of whisky that was particularly memorable to him.)

*cough cough - Olde Claymore...

Could be other smells than that: We know Sam is a giant mannwhore, and I'm going to stop describing this idea right there.

YES

Yeah, I know where you're going with that and Mr. Anonymous is not who you're suggesting--they're too short.
