Panel 1: Casey is lying on Marie's futon. Nico covers him with a blanket as Marie stands behind Nico.

Marie: I'm thinking there are two possible explanations here. The logical one is that Casey went through some kind of extreme trauma a long time ago.

Panel 2:  Nico stands up.

Marie: He copes with it through the ritual of the Tim Hortons deals, which add structure to his life. But when a deal ends, the memories come flooding back...until the next deal begins.

Panel 3:

Marie: Every deal is a chance to start over: new life. new memories. No need to think about the past. But this time, he didn't move on. And now Barbara's triggered a memory that's sent him into full-blown psychosis, false memories and all.

Panel 4: She crosses her arms.

Marie: How'm I doing?

Nico [points at his own head]: This is my high-stakes-poker face.

Alt-Text: I've got a theory...that it's a demon...a dancing demon! No, something isn't right there...
