This page could also be called “Mindblow” or “WTF!? Grrfmblrgarhmfzzlegrblmarghhh!”, you know, depending on how willing you are to accept Rudy’s revelation. I settled with “Transcendence” because it is basically relevant though (and I love me some wordplay).
Special mention goes to the black and white scenes. The first two are from actual scenes earlier in the comic. The first portrays Rudy’s first display of admiration for Rain (from page 21 - The Truth Is). The second is from a scene in which he and Rain discussed the Strongwell home life (on page 39 - Slight Overreaction), making Rudy actually the first character to open up to Rain about his past. The third black and white panel isn’t any specific scene, but a simple montage of the three most antagonistic characters in the story: Emily, Todd and Father Quenton (although, only Emily has been particularly notable thus far). BUT! The “bumped into you on the first day” remark refers to Rain and Rudy’s first meeting (page 16 - Crash).
There’s lots more allusion throughout the comic thus far too. I’ve had this confession planned since day one after all. Don’t believe me? Read it again, and focus on Rudy. ^_^
But regardless of nearly 200 pages of build up, Rain looks… iffy. How will things proceed from here, I wonder.
