Outside the Secret Lair . . .
We pick up outside the villain's secret lair. The Rat Queen, who has never had a hangover before due to being resistant to poison, claims she's having the worst hangover ever.
The Commander, still feeling "groggy" due to being pumped full of drugs for hours or days, is feeling a bit grumpy.
For reference, my hangover is worse than hers. Seriously.
