Peter goes after Strange, demanding to know how Carlie could have uncovered his identity after his spell.

The thing he has to do is give MJ the antidote, since she still has her spider-powers.

Also, Kaine is now scarless, and from the looks of it I'm guessing he's going to be the new Scarlet Spider. I liked what they did with Kaine when they brought him back (before 'killing' him off), but I'm not too crazy about prettifying him and making him some sort of superhero. And why tease the possibility of bringing Ben back?

And Julia Carpenter, the new Madame Web (I still don't understand why they had to kill off the old one and make her the new one) apologizes to Peter about the loss that's to come.

Agreed, even though I hate Carlie, I don't buy the "but I didn't tell you to protect you," excuse, because everyone's in trouble by being around Spider-Man whether they know or not, the only reason somebody would be in MORE trouble because Spidey revealed himself is if they're a screw-up who won't know how to handle it, or they're routinely around mind-readers. Otherwise, the person who takes the brunt of the danger in such a revelation is Peter himself.

Now, I do think that there is a window of time where you can be in a relationship with someone and not tell them, because you do have to build up a certain trust level to confess such a big secret that not only potentially puts you in great danger, but also everyone you have any kind of relationship with (both romantic and family/friendships), if somebody turns out to be NOT worthy of the trust. I'd say if you're at a point with regular sleepovers and/or "I love yous" have been exchanged, you've crossed out of the window (I don't read the books, just scans, so I don't actually know if they're at either point yet)... the first because it puts you in the vicinity and thus danger a lot more than a friend or casual acquaintance would be, and the second because, well, I don't know, it just seems right... if you're not ready to follow it up with a "but there's something you need to know", you'd better be ready to follow it up with "...but for reasons I can't disclose, we can't be together."

And in this scene I think even if they weren't at that point, ultra-jerkiness comes in after the first lie gets demolished (considering Carlie knows he wasn't in the bedroom and isn't freaking out about OMG I WAS JUST IN THERE AND YOU WEREN'T THERE WHERE DID YOU COME FROM, but is just all calmly "yeah, I'm going to go.") and he keeps trying to lie. You don't have to necessarily tell the truth in that situation, even a "I've got things I can't tell you" is fine, but continuing to try to make up lame stories shows a fundamental lack of respect.
