This is actually somewhat close to how I predicted this would play out. Bell over powering Blossom, and Blossom at Bell's mercy, Buttercup comes in and help. However I thought Buttercup would have dispatched of Samantha by now. I was also right about Bell holding a grudge over what happened to Mandark.
I'm predicting Buttercup will come in and save Blossom from Bell. Come to think of it, if this is true, this'll be the second time Buttercup has saved Blossom's ass.
Now my question is; how
will Buttercup save Blossom? I think she'll either: intercept the attack by blocking Bell's foot, simply fly in and tackle Bell, throw the Bola at Bell, fire an energy blast of some kind, or fly in and use Jack's sword on Bell (that last one is my favorite).
As for the "Blossom being defenseless and begging for mercy" thing, I'm not really complaining.
To me, it makes her seem more human. And I mean, C'mon, it's not like she didn't put up a good fight. However personally, I wish she would have gotten some hits in before she went all helpless.
: Hey BR. Will Samantha have a back story before she kicks the bucket? You know, an established reason for her being where she is now. Me and some of the other people here were kinda wondering this in the last thread update.

So it seems inevitable that Buttercup helps Blossom now, but I do wonder if Sam is truly down for the count (I'm thinking no, but who knows). I think it's interesting how Jack's sword disappeared in this page. I wonder how (or if) it will play a part in all this.
Yeah, It's a little surprising Bell knows what's going on. However I think there was something mentioned a few pages ago about the fact Bell knew about what was going on. If she didn't know the entirety of what was going on, I don't think she'd be so willing to go through with it.
I think Samantha's down, but not out. However, I think those bolas did some serious damage. I wouldn't be surprised if by the time she gets back up, she'll be in bad shape. Like her head will be bent funny, and/or a portion of her head will be missing with sparks coming out (also there might be a lot of blood if part of her is still organic).
As for Jack's sword. Like I said above, I'm hoping Buttercup will use it on Bell. I think It's a strong possibility at this point.
