Panel 1: In Iz's hospital room, Iz has cracked open his eyes, and Rose, after a moment of panic, has found a way to call a nurse. A young woman in pink scrubs enters the room.

Nurse: What is it?

Rose: His eyes are open.

Panel 2: The nurse leans over to examine Iz. She grasps his chin and peers into his face. He does not respond.

Nurse: Hmm...could be a reflex.

Rose: Has he ever done it before?

Nurse: No.

Panel 3: The nurse takes Iz's hand.

Nurse: Iz?

Iz squeezes her hand...or, more likely, twitches his fingers weakly. However, it is, at last, a response.

Nurse: Holy--

Panel 4: The nurse freezes in place, her eyes wide.

Nurse: I'm going to need you to leave the room because I have to call everyone.

Rose: Me too.

Alt-Text: The nurse has only ever known Iz as, basically, a breathing corpse. That one small hand squeeze must make her feel as if she's witnessing someone come back from the dead. Her reaction is understandable.
