The setting for this scene is really cool, like, it looks like a day with shade and a slight cool breeze.

Lola's thoughts on their mother is really hits a relatable spot, and I feel that having them be said during this scene in this like calm, serene setting is like, it seems like it's for the purpose of showing how even going into dark thoughts can happen during calm times and it provides a contrast to say, a story where the environment was constantly gloomy to match the mood.

Another like, big thing that jumped out at me was the panel composition right after Lola asking Sugar if that's her question (on 36) is really like helps convey the motion Sugar's head does for the thought process.
