Can We Talk About Mom?

Everyone has read Blue and Gold #6 by now, right? Good. Because I can no longer not talk about the issue's most shocking revelation!

No, I'm not talking about the outcome of the fight to the death between Booster Gold and Blue Beetle. Sheesh. "Death" is only a temporary problem in comic books. (Personally, I blame Superman.)

What I *am* talking about is this sequence from pages 11/12:

Let's clarify what happens here....

A. Rip Hunter establishes that a threat to the life of his parents is also threat to his own life.

B. Teresa Collins jokes that he might have to kill her.

C. Rip Hunter makes it clear that it would be "healthier" if she doesn't die.

Idioms are funny things. We are expected to assume that Rip's reponse means that it would be "healthier" for Terri if he didn't have to kill her. Sure, that would be bad for Terri, but what if Rip wasn't talking about her health but his health.

Because, as he just said, parents are pretty important.
