|Panel 1: Somewhere in Davies, Barbara approaches Marie and Rahim.|
Barbara: You've bullied her into going to the ball?
Rahim: I have.
Barbara: Excellent. She'll be the perfect bait. With her unwilling help, I shall unleash the full force of my convoluted plan!
Marie: What if I don't want to be bait?
Barbara: Then you'll never find out what the bleeding heck I'm talking about.
Marie: Curse you.
Barbara: Then again, I could be babbling. Isn't it maddening not to know?
Alt-Text: Only the fact that everything Barbara does is maddening is preventing Marie from punching her in the back of the head.
