Watchmen: Chapter VIII - page 5


Panel 3:  Laurie’s remark that, “[Jon] just pops up when [she] least expect[s] it…” foreshadows what occurs toward the end of this chapter.

Panel 4:  The skeletons alluded to by Dan not only represent the metaphorical, romantic ones on the surface of his dialogue, but also the actual skeletons of their adventuring days, as shown by their costumes strewn about the interior of Archie, in these three panels.

Panel 4-6:  And, once again, we get a super-panel from Gibbons, the passage of time across these three panels enhanced by the panel borders, as Dan and Laurie walk in front of Archie on their way back upstairs.
