They could have also cut out his vocal cords, if they really wanted to remove the threat and keep him alive, but apparently life imprisonment is less cruel. What's worse, never being able to speak again or being completely cut off from society and the people you love for the rest of your life?
Oh, Zakris! T-T I'm sure everybody already knew....but seeing him say it with such a remorsefully face and so bluntly is still a punch in the guts! And he looks so bitter in the last panel....
But I'm happy he's been frank and honest with Nilius. Zakris is just that type of guy, he won't lie to her and it's clear he loves her too much to get her hopes up. And considering how they still act around each other in the present, it's seems clear what he saying won't change the fact Nilius wants to help him!
Although I have to ask, with all the time Nilius has been spending with Zakris, does she ever try getting some support from other family members in her wish to free him? Surely Zakris' mother would do anything to help Zakris....And does Nilius ever talk to her father or sister about her visits with Zakris? They should know that those two grow really close...
