I actually kinda like the art on this page. It's.. um.. well done.

I knew how I wanted Bill to come to terms with his sister. I didn't know quite how to get there.

I was still in the hospital when I was writing and drawing this. For the first time in two weeks, I left my room and sat in the TV room, because I couldn't be alone. It was just too hard to make this.
I'm sorry this happened Annie. Both the first time, and this time.
Hopefully you will gain a brother out of it.

Traumatic ? Yes !!! I assume that Bill came by and heard the commotion just as the intern was putting the finishing touches on Annie. That would explain why he did not rush in behind the curtain and break up the altercation. Bill calls Annie 'sister', possibly for the first time. Although rare, that's another redeeming incident in his favour.
Now given Bill's attitude towards Annie's transition, one would think that he would agree with what the intern has just done. Justly deserved punishment for being a transgender person and being a featured performer in a rock band, let alone being out in public, as their correct gender of a young woman, don't you know ? But I bet that Bill is not going agree, and something else is going to happen. . . .

* The foot in panel 4 could have been drawn larger to be in proportion to the thick leg, but otherwise, I agree. Well done !!!

@CuteDress&TwinPonytails: There is a pretty substantial difference between siblings fighting and attempted murder. Bill might do damage to Annie/Tony trying to get her to stop dressing, but not like this. Bill clearly doesn't like what Annie is doing, but there is no way he wants her dead like that - he wants her fixed.
Though him calling her 'sister' could just be because of the situation. I would imagine it would be weird to call a fully dressed person the wrong pronoun (or, it should be, at least). And besides, who in all the concert planning knows about Annie's alternate life? Do the sound people know? The other security? Seems in his best interest to refer to her as a girl anyways.
Ah yes, the psychology of siblings.

You warned us, and you hinted at it in the previous page. I expected bad, but I didnt expect this...

My jaw dropped and my body instinctively hit fight or flight mode.

I'm very tempted to stay up to midnight to find out what happens next.
