I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
While everyone tries to convince Midnighter that Apollo is dead and that he has to deal with his grief, he counters with 'no, I believe Apollo is alive, thank you very much.' He refuses hugs and any comfort, and instead tries to revive Apollo and then tries to find Apollo's soul.
Riiiight. Because this isn't Midnighter. It's Midnighter and Apollo. Did anyone believe that they were going to kill Apollo?
Still, Apollo's in a very place in a very bad way. I'm not sure what Midnighter plans on doing given this ending, but I'm eager to find out what he's going to do!
