It might add to the unsettling energy that we seem to have skipped a frame or two: a head-shot of Gring shouting “PRILL!”, maybe, followed by another head-shot of Prill glancing back and realizing death’s hungry tentacles are right behind him, and then we’d go to this sequence of desperate running. I don’t know if I can explain why it feels correct to skip those here, but it does. Although the hugeness this two-panel composition gives to the monster doesn’t hurt.

It won’t be the last time we skip a couple frames in their subplot.

The Frigg-Magda bit here is Flo building on Frigg’s long history of insult comedy and Magda’s established difficulties with smack-talk. “Good at everything about being a Champion except being mean” is a pretty good way to sum Magda up.
