Good grief, woman, what's he supposed to do? He's doing his best to be pleasant in the face of unrelenting hostility. There had better be a darn good reason for this treatment.

I wonder if some of her attitude is from her perceiving RJ rejecting her offers of hospitality. ("What, you don't like my cooking?")

There are a number of cultures where that is offensive, where the polite thing to do for a guest is prepare them a meal, and it's considered quite rude to refuse it.

@MCClaw
What Viking ZX says is true, but it's not the reason in this case :) Abigail obviously knows RJ, so by now he would have already been told about the cultural difference. There's another reason why she behaves this way. :)

@Viking ZX
Very true, and thanks for pointing that out. In this case though, it is not her reasoning :)

Is that last panel thought bubble comind from RJ or Griha.

I find it odd mom says that Sergio will be with them in a second, but when they are not waiting for her to make snacks she sends them up straight away.

Does Sergio have sisters whom the mom wants to date RJ? I mean if he is downstairs waiting, they might just randomly happen along.

1. The thought bubble is coming from Griha :)

2. And it's not that unnatural. If they're not going to wait for snacks, what's the point of Sergio coming all the way downstairs?

3. Sergio does have a sister, Catherine, (She has been mentioned.) but she is not currently home at all times. However, Abigail does not want RJ dating her.
