For the last couple pages I’ve been seeing people predicting, “On the next page Hyde is going to blow up.” I’m not saying that Hyde isn’t going to blow up at some point (that is to say: he might or he might not) but you have to keep in mind that Hyde is blindingly confident in his own untouchability (that’s probably not a word). He couldn’t immediately blow up at Jekyll because his brain is still processing the mere possibility that Jekyll would ever enforce any kind of consequence whatsoever for anything Hyde has done. As far as he’s concerned, Jekyll has just told him that the sky is made of ants. It’s not upsetting, it’s just weird and not true.
