Welp. Mufasa seems to have made an official law of the Pridelands thanks to Uru's endorsement. And yes (as some of you pointed out last page) in what may be a possibly-on-purpose (and very rare) reference to TLK 2, this law will be seen again during a certain "roasty-toasty-princess" incident in the Pridelands' future. And this little "loophole" is yet helping a green-eyed lion stay for a while longer.
Can we all agree Taka wanting to keep his long-lost father around is kinda cute?
Also, Uru... those are literally famous last words! Maybe DON'T tempt fate??

I (and a few others) replied to you on the last page, but I'll offer another explanation here.
Mufasa's law: The royal family repays their debts.
The debt in this case is Sarabi's life, which Rehema saved thanks to him helping her walk through the desert. By allowing Rehema to stay instead of enforcing his exile, the royal family is repaying that debt they owe him with hospitality.
This page was pretty great, though the eyes on the third panel kind of freaked me out at first. Was it supposed to be like that? Without irises and anything? Otherwise, I am cautiously looking forward to the next page. Uru, why?
