I just want to say that that map piece is one of my favourite individual Lego pieces of all time.

A reader writes, pointing out that this sort of pistol can only fire a single shot before reloading, and that Wendy has already fired it once. He suggests Wendy's line here should be:
Wendy: I know what you're thinking - did I fire one shot, or just none. In all the confusion, I'm not so sure myself. Bearing in mind this is the most powerful muzzle-loading pistol in the world, and could blow your head clean off you gotta ask - do you feel lucky, punk?

2018-11-06 Rerun commentary: Notice how I cleverly hid the pistol in panels 1-3? You can just see a tiny bit of it in panel 3 by Wendy's side, but you'd never notice it if you weren't looking specifically for it.

Those are some short palm trees.
