Beyond Rodney showing off his capacity for rounding decimals, what else in this cozy scene is advancing the plot?  I’m focused on the symbolism in these three panels.

Panel 1: Dandy Don had this one called years ago. High school stardom for these guys is coming to an end no matter what.

Panel 2: If True doesn’t make a decision before long, he’s gonna end up being a bottom bunk guy for the next four years if not longer.

Panel 3: Look at that night sky. I think it’s beckoning True to follow Mr. Bakst to South Carolina. Can you imagine the Ol’ Ball Coach making a cameo in Gil Thorp? Love him or loathe him (and I freely admit I’m in the latter camp) you gotta admit he’d liven things up a bit.

  1. The quietly smoking bomb lies in Panel 2– “Plus, your dad wants a major conference.” This conflict has yet to be developed, though True’s choosing Mfnrd over Valley Tech, and False’s eventual support of the decision, is promising.
