Regarding panel #2, a reader once jokingly suggested they must be swimming in the Potomac River! In truth, however, I simply based it on my own experience of swimming in murky rivers, of which there are many. And anyway, Candace would have had too much of an advantage over her beach brawl opponent if her goggles were of any use! Originally, I had considered having her grab who she thought was Megan and then pulling back a fist before realizing her mistake, but I decided she’s not that violent.
