Yeah, it’s much more effective for Frigg to be the one who brings Rachel up, and John does a fantastic job with her expressions on this page. Only the last panel is full rage: the other two show varying levels of vulnerability: there’s uncertainty in panel 1 and outright hurt in panel 3.

This started with Frigg falling from the mountain, but she’ll later find she’s just outside the winter elf village. But I don’t think this is all just a dream or vision, exactly. Perhaps we’re close now to that Realm of Being that HR was going on about.
