Man, that shit can’t be moonshine. I’ve had moonshine.
GENE CAN CHANNEL GOD THROUGH HIM!!!
S/He called Gene “it”…
Gene’s channeling something, all right, but it ain’t God. Two possibilities:
1. Gene is totally gone and his brain is reacting the only way it can, referring to the mental training the Jakes have been giving him all his life. Bad craziness.
2. In Spike’s world, God (or some supernatural entity) has actually chosen Jakeskin for this mission, and EVERYONE else is truly screwed. I take nothing for granted in Templar.
I wouldn’t be too quick to see those two options as mutually exclusive.
Yeah, I’d like to put in a third possibility that Gene is actually fine and just fuckin’ with them.
This is like a Philip K. Dick story. Great in so many ways.
Wow, you know, I hadn’t made that connection until now. It’s a lot more coherent than what he usually wrote, but just as imaginative, in a similar sort of way.
