Uh-oh. Has Entertainer Esme actually hired Haitian gang members to abduct Katie in the ladies' restroom?
Perhaps the door is propped open because these facilities are in a hut on a beach, and not connected to a sewer system.
Katie, heed the warning from every horror movie ever: DON'T GO IN THERE!-- S. McW.
Today's Boldface Haiku is titled "Esme Can Make Any Venue Seem Like Carnegie Hall!"Assistants...?Quick stop---Hmmm, propped open?(Those are the worst souvenirs I've ever seen, ever. Ever. And is that Esme standing behind the teeshirts in Panel One?)
So Derek has assistants, not one measly assistant. He doesn't strike me as the type of person who would have a staff. And I'm with Wanders - don't buy the ball caps, Derek.We'll all have a colossal letdown when it turns out that it's Mary in the restroom. The door is propped open because she's spraying AquaNet on her hair.
The door is propped open because it stinks in there! Like a Port-O-John at Coney Island. Katie ain't too smart.
She can't wait until she gets back on board and to her own cabin? Katie is about to become patient zero in a really nasty outbreak of norovirus that will attack everybody but Mary, Derek, and Evil Entertainer Esme.
How 4th grade-ish would it be if EEE (Evil Entertainer Esme) was in there smoking...
Usually a public restroom door is propped because there is a janitor in there cleaning. But I do like @fauxprof's theory.
I bet Esme is in there, and she won't spare a square!
There are any number of dark, dangerous, exciting, intriguing, interesting, or merely disgusting turns this story could take given this propped open door, but before we get too excited at the prospects, we'd do well to remember who's writing this story.
And by the way, as a near septuagenarian male, I am rather jealous of the confidence with which Katie mentally states "I'll just make a QUICK STOP here."
Mary’s Helpful Hint #43: Be sure to buy some SOUVENIRS for friends and loved ones at the REASONABLY PRICED gift shops on the beach! They have wonderful ITEMS! ... Also, if the rest room door is PROPPED OPEN, that means, in cruise parlance, RUN THE OTHER WAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!I have to say, I can’t wait till tomorrow to find out what’s in the rest room! Could it be ... Cthulhu?
I'm hoping that Entertainer Esme is in the bathroom waiting to give Katie a "swirly".Yahoonski, I am in the same boat as you...there is NEVER a "quick stop".I read Derek's thought balloon and this imaginary conversation from his assistant went like this in my head:Assistant (sarcastically): "Wow Derek, a hat from Haiti, that was really thoughtful." (To himself) "Cheap $#!*@! I coulda got a better one in Dollar Tree."
@Regina Wolfe-Parks: An EEE swirly! Wouldn’t that be cool? One can only hope.

@Nick Walberg - omg, that second letter is a gem! My hat is off to the writer, Shane Thielges. Simply brilliant, thank you for sharing.
That has to be one of the fattest silhouettes I've ever seen on the restroom door.
