Panel 5: Taylor’s eyes widen as realization dawns on him. “Ohhh.”
Panel 6: Taylor glances away with a somewhat sheepish smile: “Okay, wow, that makes a lot of things make sense.”
Panel 7: Taylor looks back at Darrell, his smile brighter: “Also, Darrell is a very good name, and if that’s what you want to go by then I’m happy to call you that.”
Darrell hesitantly smiles back: “Yeah?”
Taylor: “Yeah. Absolutely.”
Panel 8: Taylor pulls out his phone as he asks: “Um, are there pronouns you’d prefer?”
Darrell: “Yeah, uh, he/him is good.”
Taylor: “Got it. And just in case the weed and absinthe wipe my memory, I’m adding a reminder for myself tomorrow.”
