Thank you, everyone, for your patience! I don't think I should go into specifics about writing decisions made after the previous page.
I will say it's a very, very, very good thing I took those days off, and I will write at length someday about why.
As for this page, I imagine the last two panels are potentially confusing? Hope momentarily thought Justin meant how SHE'D changed.
Holding twenties up to a light is one way to check for counterfeits. Certain things should be visible if genuine. There are other ways to be reasonably certain one is legit, but bringing lights back into it felt appropriate, and Justin wasn't really THAT suspicious of Hope.
