Part of me cringed that I didn’t add a panel between 2 and 3 where Demetrius takes off his glove, but I felt that would have hurt the timing. It’s not shown but I can confirm he took the glove off before touching anything else.

Cass’ hair growing faster was an accidental addition to the story. A reader pointed out that her hair was growing particularly fast over the last few pages. I hadn’t meant to be so inconsistent with the pace of its growth. So, just like in Chapter 1, instead of redrawing pages worth of panels, I decided to write it into the script. That resulted in a great little story beat to kick off her hair loss.

Ash’s last line was supposed to be “Besides, this room has a TV,” which sounds more natural, but it would have rhymed with the first line and that sounded weirder.
