What I love about this piece is the very twisted play on the film noir femme-fatal, who always betray the lead hero, regardless if she does house feelings for him or not...though being an alien super beast disguised as a woman, that be unlikely...or if she does care about her unfortunate enemy / pasty, it would be an awkward reveal later on. Either way, I love it!
Y'know, when I look at this, I don't see "sneak attack." I see "hard-boiled PI and his Lovecraftian alien sidekick whose favorite disguise just happens to be a beautiful femme fatale." And it's just trying to get a better look around because it's hard to see sometimes in that little human head.
