I guess Sarah and Bernard aren’t very excited about there maybe being a new Santa soon, but there’s just no pleasing these two sometimes. I originally planned for a pretty different version of this scene but eventually figured this way was a more accurate result of Bernard and Sarah chatting on the drive over here. Why show them react to all the Christmas news when implied wallowing and self loathing does the job just as well?

I also planned for this to be the End page of this arc, but the new ending made me wanna go with a different panel layout. With how things are, what was originally the epilogue will make for a more fitting final page instead, but it always bothers me when page plans change at the last second.
