Might as well run the "Epilog" as two pages, since there's not much "action"......

PAGE TWENTY-ONE

PANEL ONE

1 CAPTION: Rowayton, Connecticut

2 BUTLER (from house): I’m SORRY, sir, but Miss Carter is not HOME to VISITORS.

3 GOWER (from house): Look, I KNOW she’s here…

4 GOWER (ditto): And we’ve been trying to REACH her for WEEKS…

PANEL TWO

5 BUTLER: I am SORRY you were INCONVENIENCED, sir, but…

6 CYNTHIA: That’s all right, Collins.

7 CYNTHIA: I’ll SEE this gentleman.

PANEL THREE

8 GOWER: “Gentleman”. A PROMOTION!

9 GOWER: Nice little SHACK you got here, Princess. Is the MONEY all YOURS, or…

10 CYNTHIA: I’m not in the MOOD for CHIT CHAT, Gower.

11 CYNTHIA: Come into the drawing room.

PANEL FOUR

12 CYNTHIA: …and as I have told Mrs Smith a DOZEN times, I am NOT coming back.

13 CYNTHIA: My… POWERS compelled that little boy to DESTROY himself and his mother.

14 CYNTHIA: How can I ever come back after THAT?

15 GOWER: How about if I tell you YOU didn’t destroy ANYBODY?

PANEL FIVE

16 CYNTHIA: What??

17 CYNTHIA: What are you SAYING? I SAW them…

PAGE TWENTY-TWO

PANEL ONE

1 GOWER: Oh, you saw them BLOW UP, sure. But you didn’t CAUSE it.

2 GOWER: You were directing your POWER at the kid -- and HE wasn’t the one that made things EXPLODE.

3 GOWER: It took a while, but the BOSSES finally got the whole story out of Mrs. Salter.

4 GOWER: Seems when Ester was just a girl… THINGS started HAPPENING.

PANEL TWO

5 CAPTION: “When she was FIVE, a SCHOOL BULLY suffered an ANEURISM on the playground.

PANEL THREE

6 CAPTION: “Later, a TEACHER she didn’t like had a MASSIVE HEART ATTACK in class.

PANEL FOUR

7 CAPTION: “And when Malcolm was just WEEKS old, his father… disappeared.

PANEL FIVE

8 GOWER: Now we KNOW what HAPPENED to him.

10 CYNTHIA: That’s… incredible.

PANEL SIX

11 CYNTHIA: But…

12 CYNTHIA: How did Ester escape DETECTION up till now?

13 GOWER: The early cases were UNDETECTABLE.
