Panel 2: Uncomfortable stance from April. And disheveled hair. Since when does Elly care if April has a nice evening? Or is this a "yeah whatever I wouldn't hear you if you said you put Robin in the microwave" kind of non-inquiry? And for that matter, I like April's response. "I just watched TV, if that's what you call 'nice'."
Panel 3: See? Sitcom. Elly would never grill April on what she'd been watching unless it was necessary for the plot to try to trip her up. I hate that this is focusing on whether or not April will Get Away With It, instead of focusing on how and why this happened.
Panel 4: Are the talk balloon stems actually rattling the window glass as they go through it? And yes, we get it: April's not being honest with her parents. Like a Mary Stoltz character once said, "What do they think -- that you'd lie and then TELL them so?"
Panel 5: Does this mean Gerald is on his own? I certainly hope so. I hope she doesn't feel she owes him some kind of loyalty, and gets herself in trouble anyway, trying to help him. IMO, she doesn't owe him a thing.
