I hope this page comes as a surprise to readers. Based on Mike's thought in panel four, he was definitely caught off-guard. Todd seems like such a wormy guy, not the sort to fight back physically. You'd think he would just go and report this to Bob. I think I can attribute his sudden outburst of violence either to Bob's mind-control, and/or because he knows he's lost his hold on Mike, and simple workplace discipline is not going to work anymore.
I remember getting a lot of compliments on the "NINJAAA!" line in panel five. I guess it tickled the funny bone of a lot of readers. I think it works well because Mike just thought about Stu, and now we're transitioning to him in what is sure to be a comical exchange with Bob. The timing works out really well.
