Our camera and perspective joins Sundar for a moment, slowing down as he runs, climbs, and searches until he finds what he needs to find. We’re being a bit coy about Frigg and Rachel’s relative health status here, stretching things out just a little before the next beat.

I appreciate that we’re close enough to see his stubble under his beard in panel 3.

One interesting reader theory was that Frigg was dead and the religious Rachel was prioritizing protecting Frigg’s body over her own life. I mean, that’s kind of a cool concept, but it assumes things about her beliefs that I wouldn’t feel right about revealing at the last minute.
