Welcome to Excess
After a relatively weaker intermediate issue in the Flowers story arc, this issue picks up where the previous failed somewhat. With less focus on Violet's rebelliousness and more on the effects of her actions, this issue had more relevance than previous. Violet continues following Harmony until she realizes that she has gotten herself into trouble that she cannot deal with. Elsewhere Calie comes out of her drugged state and realizes that Violet needs saving and heads out to find in a rare example thus far in this series of her being the hero which she has been in the past. The end result of the entire story is unexpected as the Flowers have their own bizarre agenda, but it ties into the horror theme of the series in a much more coherent way. In Wonderland the predicament which the Red Queen is in still seems somewhat detached from the action on Earth but it is still an interesting side story.
