I’m never sure if things are entirely as clear as I’d like them to be, but in this scene, the spear is pinning Roka to the wall by going through his shirt sleeve, not his actual body. His face would definitely be registering a lot more pain if it were his body!

And here we find out something interesting about Jayd’s energy weapons: they dissipate! Ideally I would’ve liked to convey that it takes a bit more time for them to slowly disappear, but I couldn’t really find a way to do it. I feel like I would’ve had to show Roka getting pinned by the spear, cut away to some other action, and then come back to Roka as the spear dissolves. I think it would’ve been do-able if I just had some other random fight beat to cut to, but I wanted the next beat to be a big Bocce moment, and it would’ve felt weird to come back to Roka after that. So I just kept the two Roka moments together in a single beat.
