    !. She’s boxing up her stuff.

    2. She’s leaving.

    3. Her girlfriend proposed.

    4. She’s going home to New York.

    5. She’s getting married.

    6. She’s starting a family.

    I only counted 6. What did I leave out?

    Well, I suppose G&K would have to let her go with a flourish. She was on the goner short list for awhile.

    Who’s the new roomer?

    Who’s the new waitress?

    This is just as well. Pru seemed to be there to create some Luann jealousy mistaking Pru as a rival for Quill and to make a bad pun with her name. Once that was accomplished, it didn’t seem like Evans knew what to do with her. I was surprised she did not leave when Quill did.

    This is probably the smartest decision made by a character in the last six months (well, other than Tiffany deciding that the private suite was no longer a viable option.) Good for Pru for not wasting any more time in Pittsville.

    For those “folks” who were wondering “why” Pru was still in Pitts and still in the Strip, well. Here’s your answer.

    Darn shame, though. Pru was one of the few young people in the Strip with any sort of real common sense. And not only is she leaving a room vacant, but a bartending job at the Fuse.

    As for “who” will fill the soon to be empty room, many betting Tiffany. But it could be Tara. Or Bets. Or some completely new female character. (Jack’s dog park friend Kaylie)

    Or some new GUY. Your basic handsome stranger and future love interest for Lu (And others). Or maybe It’s Jack.

    Or maybe (Start clutching the pearls) it’s Quill…….,

    Even though Pru was not a big part of the strip (and now she is being written out), I want this arc of her departure to have a lasting transformative effect on Luann, even if it is just a small spark of change at first. And I want that spark to be visible, not just words. I do not want this arc to just to be capped by the usual bedside (or sidewalk) introspective talk between Luann and Bernice (with Bernice closing with a sarcastic remark at Luann’s expense). Surprise me, Mr. Evans.

    Pru hasn’t been a significant character in a long time. This is just a way to write her out and perhaps clear the way for a new character and new arc. She’s going the way of Delta, Knute and Aaron Hill. I still think it would make an interesting arc to have Aaron reappear….

    Maybe it’s my past… But this girlfriend is so “background” that she’s not been in the picture since Pru came to town, which has been quite a while. So to suddenly pack up and say “My fiancee proposed, we’re getting married and having a family” is a REALLY big jump.

    I’m sad that Prudence is going away. She is so positive and supportive for Luann. They are like sisters. Now I really hope the Degroots (or al least Luann) will go to NY for the marriage. That would be awesome and important.

    I’ll miss Pru. I liked her a lot and she always seemed to ground Luann and give her good advice. But clearly they ran out of story for her. I like that they are giving her a good send off and a happy ever after ending. Now I have onset of Luann and her parents will be invited to the wedding. Or if Luann herself may be part of the wedding party? After all, Pru considers them the family she never had and she has said Luann is like a little sister to her. Or is Pru just going to sail off into the sunset?

    I really doubt Pru’s going to stick around long. G&K don’t really seem to be interested in her. She’s been literally living with Luann for about three years and hasn’t had a serious arc in the past two. Except for that one time where Les asked her out, which has really more about him, and when Luann was unsure about going after Jack, which was definitely more about her, Pru has basically faded into the background. This move is most likely going to write her out of the strip because now they don’t ave any obligation to feature her outside the Fuse.

    That being said, who else would you like to see appear who hasn’t in a while. I’d personally love to see Fay again. She’s sweet, one of the few characters that doesn’t annoy me n some way, and she has lots of growing to do so there’s definitely potential for arcs.

    When Pru first appeared in the strip I predicted they’d never let her have a romantic life on “screen” so to speak, probably due to not wanting to offend the older, conservative newspaper comics reading (and buying) demographic. In a way all of this tell not show exposition about a marriage proposal from her girl friend across the country (who Pru inexplicably moved three thousand miles away from to work in a cafe in a small college town) makes Pru’s initial choice to move to Pitts even more inexplicable. If Greg had actually written an arc that gave some background about Pru’s relationship and a credible explanation for their original separation (as well as Pru’s instant decision to move back and get married to someone she has barely seen in, what, two years strip time?) Maybe the girl friend, whose name we don’t even know (?), could have come to Pitts to ask Pru to come back and we could have seen them actually talk to each other about why Pru left in the first place.

    Anyway, I agree with others that Greg never really knew what to do with the character as her original purpose was for Luann to mistakenly think she was dating Quilll (and boy that close friendship between Pru and Quill disappeared for no apparent reason) and so her name could be used as a pun a couple of times (I think Dez foresaw some interaction with “Prudence”?).

    If Pru’s disappearance means that her room is going to be given to another character I really, really hope it isn’t Tiffany or we probably never will get another arc just about Luann. It probably will be Tiffany, though. (If they have to move in a familiar character, Tara would be a good one to raise some havoc in the de Groot household…)

    It’s about time. I frankly never got why someone with Pru’s experience, ambitions, and credentials was sticking around in Luann’s town. I like her, but staying in the strip as she did seemed like a betrayal of her as a character. Would anyone else read a strip based on her adventures in the New York theatre scene? I would.

    It is great that Pru has a GF she loves, BUT, they’ve been living far apart for at least 2 years in real time. No one should get married until they’ve spent time together for a while. Even if they knew each other well in NY, they both could have changed a lot in the last 2 years. I like Pru and I’m sad to see her go.

    Pru has pretty much been forgotten for a long time. I liked her character, but if they’re not going to use her, they might as well finish up her story and have her leave. It bothered me that when Luann broke up with the Aussie (see, I can’t even remember his name), except for about 2 later strips, we never saw nor heard of him again. Remember, the theatre job he got that caused him to pass on NYC was only TEMPORARY. He had been living with Gunther, yet no mention from anyone as to when he left for good. Did he get a permanent theatre job and leave? Did he go back to Australia? What was Gunther’s reaction when he left? What was Luann’s response to his leaving as he was her first, genuine long-term boyfriend? A little wrap-up would have been nice as he was on the strip and a significant character for some years. I’m glad they’re not doing this to Pru, although her character was less important than Aussie boy. Again, really liked Pru, but if not using her than let her have a good wrap-up exit.

    With all these characters in the strip, I’m amazed Greg has kept them all going in their own storylines for so long. With only 6 days/wk, three panels each. He’d need to create a book to keep them ALL going at once. With Karen’s input, I’m sure some former characters will return if necessary or will fade away if not. Pru was an interesting addition, seemed good for Luann and tied some other characters together. I’m not sure she’ll be “written out” permanently. ;-)

    Well, I for one consider the Gunther and Bets story arc complete for now. Gun will have to talk with Tiffany about her betrayal, and it will be up to Tiffany to grow up or not.

    My first reaction to today’s strip is that Luann needs to grow up too. People move on with their lives. I hope that’s where this strip is going in general.

    Agreed. There are few possible themes I see this arc taking. (1) Luann is made to think harder about what direction she wants her studies and life to take. Will she complete a 4 year degree after finishing at Pitt? Will she focus on art? (2) Luann returns to agonizing about the lack of a serious boyfriend in her life and we get a re-run of that (I hope not). (3) Pru mentions that Quill has been in touch and the plot segues in that direction(?)…. doubtful. I hope it will be item #1.

    I would hate for Luann to be stuck with Tiffany, but I think it would be better for Tiffany. Right now Tiff is stuck with Stef, who is certainly NOT good for her. Luann, at least, has her head screwed on a little better. But I can certainly see fireworks if Luann and Tiff live together. I’d rather see a new character. Maybe one WITH character who could get Gunther out of the clutches of The Evil One.

    By Pru, we hardly knew you.

    Pru was underutilized as a supporting character. She has grace and charm, and Big City street smarts. Too bad her partner couldn’t have come to Pitts instead. I will miss her, as I miss Delta, too….

    I always liked Pru as a minor character, they often used her as the voice of reason. I hope she doesn’t disappear.

    Maybe the larger issue is who will fill her role at the Fuse.

    What’s next? Someone already suggested Tiffany moving in. Could it mean the return of Delta? Or “GASP” Rosa? The latter would probably cause Gunther to return to Peru to escape the “drama” between Bets and her.

    Same old story, the gays want to get married, and the straights just want to live together. Come on Pru, just babysit for Shannon. Not saying that it will scare you straight, but you sure will re-think this “start a family” delusion.

    Good. End this boring character who has been used for nothing interesting. Sadly….

    I know we’ll all be wondering the same thing: HOW WILL GUNTHER BE INVOLVED AND CAN I COMPLAIN ABOUT IT?
