Ooh! Cussing! Have you got some sass in you after all, Beast?

It's kinda cool to see a different side of Beast. With Beauty he's usually rather composed.

Oh please, Beast, if you have anything of Catullus in the library then you have access to far better profanity than this. And it's in Latin, too, so it's classy!

Just don't read it at dinner. Unless you want Beauty to break your nose too.

I'm loving the first/last panel!! It is rare that we see a direct gaze from Beast. . . I think this is the first time? Usually he's just glancing down towards Beauty, or we have a side view of his profile.

With those views of Beast, his nose is always the prominent feature--that reminder that he comes from a broken past, that in many ways he is still broken (most notably his role as ambassador--more like someone has broken him to fit an uncomfortable harness). With this direct vantage, we can still see the bend in the broken nose, but it becomes less of a focal point. He is taking the reigns, and pushing back! It's exciting to see him engage openly in this way: he's not deflecting, he's not apologizing, he is not remaining static! Rather, he is waking up the strong person we know is inside!!

I want to see more of this new Beast!!

So this page, beyond just giving us the cutest cat poses for the Beast, also tells us that the ruler isn't so much following him as always with him, thanks to his contract - which is even creepier. He can't escape the castle grounds or even get some peace running through them - the ruler is always in his head, able to torment him whenever it wants. Even Beauty isn't quite that trapped, though the ruler's magic is having some influence on her mind, thanks to the True (if slightly symbolic) Dreams that Beauty keeps having.

... is his human name a nod to Odysseus's dog?
