I don't get it. Isn't Maya supposed to be back in jail? I never understood how that little story thread played out. Tony breaks Maya out of jail to help him figure out what's wrong with his body, and then Maya just continues to live on the lam? And Tony, the guy who had her arrested for the Extremis affair, is OK with this? And now Maya and Tony are buddy buddy again and the story centers around Maya going to go job-hunting??? WTF?

Further, why does the solicit read like Tony having issues with Maya's research is a new development? Its not like their relationship since Maya has been in the cast has been defined by their friendship.

Yep, it makes no sense and its just another bit of ongoing editorial laziness that's par for the course on IM.

I can't wait for more conscience wrestling. Between injecting himself with untested drugs, beating up and locking up his best friends, building a gulag, cloning, shilling for the government, housing a fugitive, and pulling the plug on his best friend it makes me wonder what's actually left to make Tony feel guilty this month. Maybe he destroys the UN or takes a child bride.
