Okay, so Madam Arfa here is kinda like Steve Jobs was at the end of his life, when his days were numbered: not really fooling anybody, but commanding enough respect that everyone just tacitly agrees not to say anything out loud.

It’s Gondolessa’s turn to hold the exposition stick, but at least he clarifies why no one else has brought the winter elves into things before now. And I like how he at least tries to let Arfa save face in panel 3, by stressing that confusing a dream with precognition could happen to literally anybody.

Nice nod to Harky’s history in panel 4. And it’s nice to see how he handles a public disagreement with Gondolessa, which can’t be easy for him.
