Panel 1: We are back in Universe A in December of 2022. If you're keeping track of events in Universe B as well, this is the day in that universe on which Fatima and Kai throw a Christmas party in Iz's apartment. In Universe A, Iz A is not in a festive mood. He is lying on his couch in a ratty T-shirt and boxer shorts. His hair is messy and a bit long, and he has lost a little weight, meaning that his clothes are fitting loosely. His face is stubbly. Fun fact: at the best of times, Iz has very little facial hair, and it takes him weeks to grow even a rudimentary moustache and goatee. He has apparently not shaved for some time. He is listening to a message on his phone.

Caption: December 22, 2022

Rose [via voice message]: Iz? It's Rose again.

Panel 2:

Rose: I'd really like to see you soon. I'm worried about you. Could you please call me back?

Panel 3: Without moving much, Iz A drops the phone on the floor.

Panel 4: Iz A lies apathetically on the couch, one arm dangling.

Iz A [thinks]: I would break it again, but Mr. Jones keeps sending me new ones.

Iz A [thinks]: Future me is so considerate.

Alt-Text: How infuriating would it be if every time you rebelled against your inevitable fate by breaking something, the future self you were trying to repudiate replaced it for you?
