For those not familiar with the man in the second panel: Nikola Tesla, as played by David Bowie, appears in the book and movie The Prestige. In an effort to make a teleportation machine, he instead creates a machine that makes an exact duplicate of something, only some distance away. Apparently, he's been tinkering with it some.
This arc ends here; I'll leave it to your imaginations how (and if) any of the "copies" made it back to their original sources.
Coming next week: One of the most cracked out ideas I've had for the Roommates series. More than a little magic will be worked.
