This continues to be the best arc. I also adore both final lines.
What I also like about this one is that it shows while the two don’t exactly relate to each other, with Alice and Pete basically being a hare and a tortoise in human bodies, They do love each other and in a pinch Petey.. tries to help. He fails because a swift breeze will conquer him, but you can’t fault him for trying or the normally self centered alice for giving up her spot so he can get help. The latter’s especially noticeable given you’d expect her to be upset Petey failed but no… she simply wants her brother to be okay.
