Re: 1190: "Time"

Here's my guess:

They, being Cueball and Megan, will build trebuchets. And bombard the two sandcastles with whatever a trebuchet hurls.

Or, Black Hat will come around and take over the One True Sandcastle (assuming he has control over the other) with his army of Red Spiders.

For all we know, Randall has developed a time-hack which allows us to float freely throughout the -time end of the space-time continuum.

I think the reason behind this comic could be more heavyhearted than all of you are thinking.
