Panel by panel (38:1)
The panel is diagonally split between two scenes. In the upper left, Jillian is speaking, with a megalogwiff looming in the background and a gwiffon and its rider visible a bit further away. In the lower right, Tramennis is standing in front of an ornate wall in the Jetstone palace style.|||
This panel is split by a bright blue line running top to bottom. On the left side, Jillian stands with an impatient expression facing an Archon with dark shoulder-length hair. On the right side, Tramennis grins as he faces an Archon with neck-length light brown hair. Both Archons are seen from behind and are wearing stewardess-style blue uniforms. Both Jillian and Tramennis are standing in Thinkspace; a dark room lit by a single beam of light from above. This is similar to the scene where Parson contacted Charlie; however, Jillian and Tramennis are each in the same outfit they were wearing before initiating the contact.|||
Parson: And if it does work, it'll be a mess.
We're gonna lose most of you, anyway.
Wanda: It will work.
Parson: But... I'm sorry, there's no other option.
Back in the Situation Room, Parson continues the conversation with Wanda. He is slumping a bit and looking stressed. In the foreground, Maggie's hands are still making a rectangular frame as she maintains the Thinkagram.|||
A head-and-shoulder view of Parson's Thinkagram image dominates the frame. His expression is grim and serious. Jack and his dwagon can be seen over Parson's right shoulder, with a few more dwagons in the background.|||
Parson is leaning down with his arms braced on the Situation Room table, his eyes closed and his expression pained. Maggie is turned toward him with a troubled look of her own.|||
