“Well, actually” happens to be one of my least favorite sayings because I swear, it never leads to anything good.
We also use it when we don’t like the direction things are headed, as with Christina taking on the 2nd 2nd job. She definitely doesn’t want it, but doesn’t quite know how to let Vivi down.
And lastly, we use it to delay bad news, as with Elli learning about Ruby’s death. When the kindest option would be to simply rip off the bandaid, it’s for our benefit, not theirs.
So yes, I hate the phrase “well, actually.” But that’s why it works so perfectly for episode 10.

This Monday, we lost one of the most influential creators in modern media, Stanley "Stan Lee" Lieber. The co-creator of such characters as (with Jack Kirby) the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor (and Larry Lieber), Iron Man (and Larry Lieber), X-Men, and Black Panther; Daredevil (with Bill Everett); Doctor Strange and, of course, Spider-Man (with Steve Ditko), it's hard to overstate how much he and his collaborators changed the face of comics and the cultural landscape.
In Silverwood: The Door, "Out here in the woods, with every last vestige of civilization crumbling, he finally felt like himself." In Bullet Catcher, Imma learns that bullets can be bitter medicine. Tremontaine, still on hiatus. Plus, a new micro story is published for Microfiction Monday!
