This page takes us back to the hive - where we find out that Abbath is a bit of a player (at least as far as a Hunter can be in a hive dominated by women). We have met Katra before - way back on page 19, when she had a bit of a run-in with Saphyr. She seems to have her own agenda - one that does not involve Saphyr, apparently - at least not alive.
This is the first night page I've done in a while and while I think it works overall, there a few bits and pieces I'm not quite happy with. I was experimenting with more creative panel borders and page design on the least panel. I like the way Katra's expression came out in the least panel - it was roughly what I was aiming for.
Hope you dig this page!

I'm guessing that the "cull" is some kind of warrior tournament that determines who gets to be designated a "huntress", or an elite member of society.
I kind of see military service that way here in the U.S. People who have served are treated with more respect, get a pension, medical care and health insurance, specials loans and other financial discounts etc.
The only thing I can't stand about some, but not all veterans, is that act like they are superior to people who have not served.

I think you're on to something there regarding the cull. It is an important event for this society in many ways. You draw some interesting parallels to the military. It'll be a while still before we see the cull begin, but when it does it will be an epic event, that much is for sure.

It's not just the facial expressions - the body language is really expressive too. Great 'acting'. I'm intrigued about the cull...
