The alternate "lost" panel is the one that is in the strip. I restored it to the way I intended it. The original had no speech balloon at all, and the character with the crown is pleasantly smiling rather than gloating.
I'll post the original that was published, but there's basically no joke in it.
Ah, thank you! That makes sense.
