    The intruder “exits stage right,” just like our three “heroines” weren’t even there.

    We may never find out “who” this person is, as it appears he/she/it are about to escape, unpummeled.

    But what would truly be the icing on the cake, would be if the “Bistro Bandit” also swipes, Bernice’s car. ;)

    Taking a video and getting the license plate of the car etc IS a good idea. By the time the cops arrive the burglar will be long gone. And what is that pose Tara has in the first panel? That is NOT karate…looks more like she is doing the Michael Jackson THRILLER dance! LOL

    I mentioned that yesterday’s portrayal of Tara’s ninja pose was lame and that Greg knew how to portray anime poses with Bets at comicon. Today’s panel one rendition looks like she’s casting a spell on “the intruder.”

    I believe Greg is signaling that Tara is not seriously attacking “the intruder.”

    This had so many ways of going, but the seeds of doubt started growing when Tara said she was going to Utah. It still teetered a little bit for a few panels, but now it’s obvious: Tara and her cousin are in cahoots, Tara is pretending to “attack” the intruder, but she’s actually running to the car so she can jump in and peel out with her cousin and the money. Maybe she wasn’t lying when she said she was going to Utah, it’s just gonna be on the DeGroot’s dime.

    It’s not the way I wanted Luann and Bernice to fix their relationship, honestly, with Luann being betrayed devastated and Bernice comforting her. It’s just tiring when writing tries to use an awful event to make characters put things into perspective; sometimes that’s ultimately what it takes, but the friction Lu and Bern were having should’ve been solved with the discussion of “we’re two really different people, but of course we can still be great friends to each other” and NOT “well, we WERE getting on each other’s nerves, but I guess it’s better than you stealing from me so let’s just sweep our problems under the rug”.

    I dunno. If the panel does take a different turn then I’ll be pleasantly surprised, but it’s not like we get GOT-level plot twists in the funnies.

    So in the first panel Tara is saying boo to the intruder (at least thats what it looks like to me) and looks almost close enough to touch but in the second panel it looks like Tara has broken out into a slo-mo run (ala The Six Million Dollar Man) and looks a fair distance away

    Well, that answers the question about Tara’s supposed martial arts prowess. She made a bunch of big flashy moves that accomplished literally nothing. If she’d just tried to tackle the person she might have slowed them down a bit. I mean, she was so incompetent the commenters here are beginning to openly wonder if she was secretly in on the burglary.

    This is such an obvious misdirection play: Tara and the “burglar” presumably her cousin are in an act to make it appear that Tara is pursuing him/her (more likely her as Tara apparently has mentioned earlier). I mean even the car is there, the person is standing by an open car door looking back at Tara, clearly he/she can hear and see Tara, who is putting on a dance “act.” Over what? Her bag which she set down? And some have said something about cash register receipts. Could be, but I doubt it. Of course Luann is being doofus with her toilet brush cleaner, but Bernice is being sensible, calling the cops. Is Tara a baddie or what? Will we know by Saturday? Odds either way anyone?

    Yeah, I’m at a loss. Neither a burglar nor Tara’s cousin would have come within sight of three people talking to each other.

    Tara was packing up to leave, so perhaps this person was Tara’s ride out of town, and Tara found a way to exit stage right that kept this person’s identity from Lu and Bern. But she has her own Jeep-like vehicle.

    To quote the famous philosopher Barbarino, I’m so confused.

    OK, what the heck is Tara doing? Just yelling and posing? She doesn’t seem to be having any effect on the burglar who’s just ignoring her. And does she really think yelling Stop is going to do anything?

    And they can thank Luann in part for this situation in the first place, who – even though she laughed about the fact that she should have locked the door – still didn’t go and lock the door.

    ok. So thoughts. If it is Tara’s cousin, and she/he (has Tara stated this explicitly, yet?) And Tara are in cahoots, is it purely a coincidence that Luann showed up? Or did Tara call her? Also, Bernice and Tara were both sure quick to forgive and forget past assumptions and actions. I know these questions have probably already been brought up in the 250 posts per day…Finally- how many of you pronounce her name TARE-uh, how many pronounce it TAR-uh, or do you call her TEAR-uh?

    Too funny. Real thieves are very dangerous and armed to the teeth. The outcome wouldn’t went so well. My guess is Bern’s brother checks on the place and was startled and ran. We’ll never know as he speeds off in his car. Bern’s brother probably followed her to see what’s up. Maybe.

    getting a picture of the guy/lady intruder would have been a good idea but 911 is too. I once spotted someone breaking into a cafe at 3AM (smashing the window and going through it) across the st from an apartment I was living in at the time. I called 911 and the cops were there in seconds. the guy had sped away on his bicycle but they knew who it was (repeat offender in the neighborhood) and caught up with him. They work fast.

    So Tara scared off the lurking whoever-he-is with her slick kung-fu-fighting moves, but capped her performance with the good old guaranteed-to-work “STOP!” She’d have hollered “Stop, thief!” but the person hasn’t stolen anything that we know of.

    This is a repeat but after looking back over the past two weeks worth of panels here at the FUSE, A LOT of things don’t add up. 1. Tara left the door open. 2. She knew Luann was stopping by. 3. They did not expect Bernice to join the fun. 4. The person entering is most likely Tara’s cousin, carrying what looks like a cylindrical object in the left hand while the right has an obvious bracelet. 5. Once again, the door was left open after Tara, Luann, and Bernice were all there inside. 6. The “thief” reaches behind the counter to grab what?

    Part of me says it’s Tara’s cousin and this is all a set up and/or Tara cleared out some cash from the FUSE to help her out and left it in a purse behind the counter.ORThis is actually a customer who left her purse behind by mistake. She already talked to TJ / Ox / Tiffany by phone and they left it for her. She got there when it was closed but seeing the door was open, just walked in to get it.ORThis is actually Tiffany. About the right height, weight, long hair, etc. She left her purse and was double tracking to get it. She may have a key so when the door was open, seeing the dysfunctional trio, was not going to make a scene.

    Utterly perplexing today:

    1. Tara…. seemed “tough as nails” yesterday…. now she seems to be about 25 steps behind Ralph Machio before Ralphie even STARTED to learn his “big move”.

    2. The “villian” seems to take absolutely no notice in the raucous “karate-esque” sounds emanating from Tara. Is the “villian” unaware that Tara is whooping and hollering? Is the “villian” hearing impaired?!?

    3. The better option for Luann and Bernice….. ONE OF THEM get a video…. and the OTHER ONE OF THEM calls 911.

    This feels like it was way out in left-field today.

    I’m reading a lot of comments, and there’s the “good girl Tara” camp and the “thief Tara” camp. Up until today’s strip, with some hints in yesterday’s strip, “good girl Tara” seemed to be more likely. But today, people are mentioning Tara’s ridiculous dancing poses as stalling because she’s in cahoots with the thief.

    But, after some thought. It’s “none of the above”. Nothing makes sense anymore.If it’s good Tara, then yeah, makes zero sense to scare off a thief and then go running outside, yelling “STOP!” Go away or Stop? What? If her backpack was so valuable, she’d be yelling, “Drop that backpack!” and, on instinct, running after the thief as fast as she can instead of posing and wasting time.

    But “thief Tara” doesn’t make sense either. Why would she call Luann to come by at night to collect the keys then? If not, and Luann’s appearance was unexpected, then why isn’t she calling her accomplice to delay the heist and getaway for a few more hours, after Luann leaves? Why would she want an accomplice to be there at the exact time when there’s 2 unwanted witnesses around?

    Or, if all the stolen money was in her backpack, then she could just leave the backpack in the storage room, so her partner can grab it… why haul it into the main room at all?

    The disturbing element to me is that a lot of posters continue to emphasize that Tara stole stuff in college and later dissed Luann in art class. The implication is “ once a bad person, always a bad person.” Tara seems like an interesting and fun character – so I maintain hope. However Tara’s MMA moves do look like pretend.

    Holy Nightmare! What twisted fate is this? Let’s hope the Calvary rushes in at the last minute for a rescue!!! I think I hear their sirens and see the flashing lights in the distant.

    Tara is acting as slow as Shannon in this one!
