    Hi John. Wishful thinking on my part, perhaps, but those last few lines…does it mean we might be getting some new GJ?

    I don’t know why anyone was surprised or offended by what Gaunt did – he’s a stone killer himself, and he knows the other guy is gonna (at least try to) kill him if they ever meet again.

    So, prevent future meetings.

    He’s dead and I’m alive and that’s the way I prefer it.
