The Ultimate Sacrifice

One of the things that I love about this strip is that it's so prudish and tame that it's entirely conceivable that when Nina says that Scott has been begging for two years, that she's talking about marital relations and not having a baby.

Is this pregnancy the ultimate sacrifice because the child is not of this world? Is it going to rip out of her womb like in Alien? Or is this baby going to be given as sacrifice to the Gaines' satanic neighbors like in Rosemary's Baby?

All of those scenarios are just so delicious!! Perhaps it's more like the 'Demon Seed', born from a union with some type of conscious computer. All I know is, Nina better be sacrificing that baby to some Mayan god, or there will be a lot of disappointed readers out here.

Nina should just have the nanny carry the baby and then raise the child as well.
