|Going Home: Form & Void|
Cerebus and Jaka are trapped in their tent in a big snow storm. Cerebus keeps blanking out. Cerebus is thinking to himself why they got trapped in the snow storm: because they up and left when he found Mary over Ham’s body and Cerebus didn’t want to sign the papers saying Jaka and him were lesbians.
In his blanking out, Cerebus flashes back to Rick and Jaka’s apartment on the side of the tower. He sees Rick who tells him the Cirinists have executed him. Rick mentions the convulsion that destroyed Iest and how the shoreline has changed because of it. Rick tells Cerebus to leave everything and follow the line of trees over the ridge. Rick says “Mungu Mkono” and shows his palm to Cerebus: it has a hole in it. We hear a very loud "KaKoom".

Dave's Q&A March 2004
Q: Did Cerebus fail a test in the tent? Cerebus defies Rick's Word by taking a tin of biscuits (and, arguably, by taking Jaka). Was this a test of Cerebus' faith? Were there repercussions for his failure?
DAVE: Cerebus failed tests all over the place through Going Home and Form & Void. It's sort of implied when you become ensnared as he was within the Idea of Jaka. It's the difference between accidentally sitting on a whoopee cushion and actually carrying a whoopee cushion around with you that you make sure is in place before you sit down anywhere. It goes beyond ludicrous, to me.
