Cat's Cradle Chapter 113 Summary


  • The clean up is over, but they still have to dispose of the bodies. They think it would be best to give the two men a proper send-off, so they decide to wait until after the Hundred Martyrs to Democracy ceremony is over.
  • Back to the Hoenikkers' tale. None of them can remember who decided to divvy up the ice-nine. They only remember that Frank got some mason jars, Angela did the chipping with the ice pick, and Newt used tweezers to put the ice-nine in the jars.
  • As for the dog, they put it in the oven. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
