I cannot BELIEVE I fit all those word balloons in there. This page was ridiculous to lay out.

The first draft of this page called for the students to be unanimously against Argo, but when some readers reacted to Dr. Mitchell’s transformation in Argo’s favor, it inspired me to mix in some students who supported his idea. That’s why there is so much crammed into this page. A lot of new dialogue had to be added.

This is Katsuko’s first chapter as a member of the secondary cast. Her character is given a name for the first time. I previously referred to her as “Student Eight” in Chapter 4’s script.

Cass is using a different phone than the one in Chapter 4. I wanted her to own a smart phone with an easy-to-read screen instead of the outdated flip-up cell from before. As of yet, I have no in-story explanation for why she’d use two different phones over the course of one week.
