First, a minor mistake to point out in this one: in the first panel, I forgot to include the text on the Cactusland poster.
Not too much to say here. A lot of inoffensive exposition. I'm not sure why Stu is suddenly so paranoid here. There is reason for why Renee is so stand-offish towards Stu, but it isn't revealed until much later in the story. I can't explain Stu, though--he just doesn't trust her. I guess it's still just part of the flip-out recovery.
For the time, I got a little experimental with the panel layout in the center row. I think it turned out nicely.
