PAGE 21 (Single panel page)
(Note : footage)
Single panel: View into the water. We see Phoebe underwater, naked and surrounded by a roiling mass of tentacles, some of which appear to be penetrating all of her primary orifices. “Voices” can be heard suggesting the chaos on the Yellow Rose.
CAPTIONS AT VARIOUS POINTS AROUND THE PANEL (1): “Oh God, oh God!” “Kill that thing!” “Get it!” “Yes, Mr. Petrobux!” “I’m getting my gun!”
Translation (1): « Oh mon Dieu, oh mon Dieu ! » « Tuez cette chose ! » « Attrapez-le ! » « Oui, monsieur Petrobux ! » « Je vais prendre mon arme ! »
PAGE 22 (Four panels)
Panel 1: Yacht Crewman #1 and Yacht Crewman #2 in the boat by the side of the Yellow Rose, as if viewed through Barron Jr.’s camera. Yacht Crewman #1 has a harpoon raised and aimed, presumably at the tentacle beast. One small tentacle is reaching over the side of the boat. Yacht Crewman #2 is sitting in the back of the boat steering an outboard motor.
Yacht Crewman #1 (1): I’ll get you, you motherfucker!
Translation (1): Je vais te niquer enfoiré !
Panel 2: Yacht Crewman #1 and Yacht Crewman #2 appear as blackened silhouettes as some sort of massive electrical discharge hits their boat. The whole craft is surrounded by a flash as if of lightning.
SFX – BOAT AND CREW BEING ELECTRO-FRIED (2): KZZZ-ZOT!
Translation (2): KZZZ-ZOT !
Panel 3: Phoebe’s head resurfaces just a bit. A tentacle covers a triangular region around her mother and nose, rather like a medical breathing mask. Her eyes are closed, and her expression looks almost blissful.
Panel 4: Ripples in the region of water where Phoebe’s head has been pulled underneath for one last time.
PAGE 23 (Four panels)
Panel 1: Barron Sr. putting his hand on the barrel of an assault rifle that Wealth Friend is pointing at the sea, a gesture meant to stop him from shooting into the water.
Barron Sr. (1): No, you idiot.
Translation (1): Non, fais pas l’idiot.
Panel 2: A view into the boat, showing the now-charred corpses of Yacht Crewman #1 and Yacht Crewman #2.
Panel 3: A view of Peony, now standing some distance away on deck, her head buried in her hands in shock and grief.
Peony (2): No…
Translation (2): Non…
Panel 4: A view downward, indicating that Barron Jr. is pointing his camera down but is still filming. (Note that he is about 11 years old at this time.) We see the swimming trunks he’s wearing, his legs and feet and beneath them the planking of the deck. We can also see through the fabric of his swimming trunks that he is having a marked erection.
