Actually Annie, he did hold your cheek.

Lexi is saying all the words Annie needs to hear. The good things, the bad things, and at the end, the words that mean nothing except to help Annie get through it.

Another feminists note: Frame 5, the entirely gray Annie has a blue aura. Is this to say that she associates being weak with being feminine? Hardly. Its because when she has nothing left in her, she can't keep up any pretenses. She just lets herself be who she is.
And besides, even if she did associate personal identity of weakness with femininity, whats wrong with that? Go read 'Whipping Girl, A transsexual woman on Sexism and the Scapegoating of Femininity'. Its a great book, and it sheds light on a different type of feminist movement.

My personal identity, I associate my strongest female moments when I am strongest and when I am weakest. When I am invincible, at night, my chest is out, my stomach is in, I am a beautiful valkyrie of the darkness. When I am so crushed by the world that I can't even lift my head, and I finally allow myself to cry, I feel like I can finally be weak and that is ok.
Everything in between can be confusing. But not those two.

Drawing Annie as an outline with only an aura in Panel 5 was a brilliant idea and effect.
