I'm with Torg on this one.

Specifically I'm headed for the starboard bulkhead at 4 meters per second.

It's not spec to say she's smiling and winking at Torg, and helping him. That's a major shift from grumpy/surly a few strips ago, or gobsmacked and confused in the last three strips, or crying yesterday (notice the floating tears in yesterday's strip). She suddenly seems quite pleased with herself.
Oasis was lowkey crying a little even before Schlock declared her an emotional meat puppet. But the doctor doth protest too much, methinks.

Also note the last panel in that strip. Interesting....

Yay! I love Oasis' smile in the fourth and last panels. She is finally free! What a feeling it must be, after a lifetime of following orders. I guess hearing Dr. Steve's order, "Know thyself," in her mind, makes it an order that precedes any other. An order that freed her from orders, what a turn.

And so nice to see Kusashi delaying the order in the way kids would do to escape doing something they really don't want to do. If only Riff hadn't talked they wouldn't have to, I guess.

I was so absorbed in Oasis struggles that I didn't notice Kusari's behavior. Nice work, Pete!

And here I was hoping against hope that KUSARI would rebel. Not Oasis.

Schlock would be ecstatic if he thought Kusari was capable of love.
From a scientific point of view of course.

He’d also s*** himself if he lost control. Lol.

Oooooh, robo-flesh-satellite girls. I never know what to expect from you.

I like how the image of Dr Steve saying "know thyself" got clearer as the days went by. The sentence also was more completely remembered by Oasis as the image got clearer. Tomorrow's strip will be interesting.

By the way, there are a lot of details still missing about what Oasis is intended to become. Hopefully we'll get more answers sooner rather than later.

I spec that there will be spec. Oasis Always Sparks Intense Spec.

On Kusari: If you go back a couple weeks, you see Kusari specifically left Riff in the back (later shown to be so Schlock won't see him) and told him to shut up if he wants to live. It sounded like a threat but was, in fact, just another way to prevent Schlock from knowing he was aboard. All this to say: Kusasha likes him, she really likes him!

On Oasis: That slowly fading in bit of Dr Steve.:look how it's pixellated. It's like a video image that's slowly getting better quality, like a progressive png being rendered, each time with better quality and more lines.

From the looks of it, that video is part of a trigger, that when she was able to truly know herself, then a whole bunch of things happen, starting with that video, progressing to freeing Oasis from the control of the watch, and ending with...well I guess we'll see what else is in there, if anything.
