Checkmate is staking out Helena’s apartment having tracked her there. They realize she’s using artificial neighbors when in fact she’s the only tenent in the entire building. After he takes out a few pawns, Vic Sage calls her to tell her she’s being watched and needs to get out of there.
I think this is my favorite Helena and Vic page. Vic’s love and concern for Helena is palpable, but she angered, hurt, and disappointed him and he hasn’t forgiven or forgotten. But there’s still a lot of love and warmth between them.
On a side note: If I’m not mistaken, this is also the last time this apartment building of Helena’s was referenced. I’m assuming it was too dangerous for her to return. In my mind she did something good with it to help others, and I’d love to see whatever it is.
