    But … Bets literally just told Gunther that leaving was a stupid idea and she never should have left at the party… and she went as far as to deleted the site she hosted her livestreams on making the opportunity ultimately pointless. (The lack of consistency with the characters’ feelings from strip to strip has been pretty rocky lately) She’s still justifying everything and blaming the relationship being nearly ruined on Stef and the commenters rather than her or Gunther. Nothing about the weirdness of the two splitting with unclear relationship status for months…

    Oh please Stef, the caption? You was obviously tryna stir up drama, don’t play coy now.

    And that comparison makes no sense. She was posting and filming just for drama even while Bets was obviously in distress, that’s not remotely similar to extending a vacation. Just grasping for straws atp

    Looking at the art in today’s strip versus the art in the Sunday strip, something is off. The art today has thickened lines given depth to the image. Sunday’s strip was drawn in a thin unvarying line. It’s almost like someone else draw the Sunday page.

    That’s a really ugly comment from Bets. The only opportunity was to do more of the same she’d already been doing with Gunther…while figuring out whether she needed him to be successful. Ugh. So much for her newfound maturity. She could be with Gunther at this moment but was more interested in berating Stef after the post that…didn’t break anybody up. And really, why would Stef care if Gunther and Bets stay together or not? She saw an opportunity to grab some likes and took it.

    The difference, “Shoog,” is that it was an agreed arrangement between her and Gunther, which Gun respected (Albeit the rest of the world didn’t get). You, on the other hand, are a PURE opportunist and did nothing to deny on trying to ruin a loving relationship for popularity.

    Ugh, don’t make me side with Stef! If I’m following, Bets went off and all but dumped Gunther, who then went to a party with Luann. Stef took a picture of them there and posted it on her own social media and Bets is angry about that, even though she’d more or less ended her relationship with him already. If that’s correct then Bets is the bad guy here and doesn’t have any right to be attacking Stef.

    I don’t know about anyone else but I’m tired of Bets and her shenanigans. She comes back to Pitts for a big reunion with Gunther whom she sees as broken-hearted without her. But she has never said that she was ever lonely without him. Then she was going to walk away from him for his own good. Then she came back and promptly ran off to confront Stef, leaving Gunther to be comforted by his not-a-girlfriend. Bets accuses Stef of posting that picture because she’s trying to ruin her relationship with Gunther, a relationship Bets had already damaged by staying on the road when he wanted to go back to school. Stef tells her as much as that and Bets’ only comeback is that she saw an opportunity and seized it? What opportunity was that? I don’t know and I no longer care. G&K have written Bets into a corner. She’s a broken character. It’s time to discard her and move on.

    The comparison became immediately awkward. I hate to admit it, but Stef isn’t totally wrong. She and Bets are both very focused on themselves and their objectives. Stef is more immature, rather unscrupulous and seems unable to change or learn. While Bets thinks more about what she does and shows signs of learning from her mistakes. It’s good that there’s this discussion. Bets will understand even more what needs to change about herself, otherwise she risks being like Stef.

    Well, ring the church bells.

    Stef actually makes an excellent point.

    What’s WORSE is Stef is absolutely right for once.

    Looks like NO “real “fight” this week, as some of Us thought.

    And it’s just as well. Fighting justified or otherwise only attracts lawyers like sharks in bloody waters.

    Bets? There’s no “winner” here. So call a cease-fire and pretend to “bury the hatchet” with Ms Noxious here.

    Then quietly encourage your pal Tiff, to go after Stef’s B/F’s Kip with a VENGEANCE.

    Or better yet, get your new “pal” LUANN to go after him.

    And be sure to post pics on Stef’s social media when you catch Kip hugged up with another gal. ;-)

    Funny, if you’d asked me a week ago, I’d have said Bets was selfish and didn’t care about anyone else. It remains to be seen if this new caring about other people attitude is a permanent change. So, it still feels hypocritical of her to say that about someone else.

    To me, Bets remains the most interesting character in the strip because she seems more true to life. While I’m not expecting true realism on the comics page, it’s nice that Bets is complicated like a 19 year old should be. Steff is just a Tiffany replacement because someone decided to make Tiffany fat and give her layers – which is quite insulting. In no world would a Steff care who Gunther was dating or post about it. She’d be posting selfies and thirst traps.

    Stef has got a point, though. Betts did take off, leaving Gun behind. And now Betts blames others for possibly trying to ruin her relationship with Gun. As Stef says, Betts did run off for 3 months in the newly repaired van. In the final panel Betts says she saw an opportunity and took it. Evidently, Gun wasn’t much of an opportunity.

    Stef’s answering with a question in panel one is not a denial — and the way she poses in panel 3 means she takes Bets’ answer to her challenge as also an answer to Bets’ question. So yes, she absolutely was trying to ruin their relationship for the lulz — and in her ham-fisted way, she’s pointing out that Bets deserves it for running off on Gunther in the first place. The fight is on….

    I glanced at the comments, all of whom were critical of Bets instantly forgetting what really happened; Bets realized her selfishness by Stef’s selfishness, although I agree Stef has a point. This is the middle of the week, so its a connector panel set. I don’t think a beatdown will occur, even though many of us would like to see it, rather an hilariously positive outcome. It does remain to be seen.

    Opportunity to travel the country and gain once-in-a-lifetime memories while young vs “opportunity” to hurt others for no particular reason. Sure. Is this supposed to be a punchline?

    Other than that, I agree with other readers in that the characters no longer make sense – in fact, they stopped making sense the moment Bets went in and said “I understand why you chose Luann, you are good together”. Like wth? She was actually thinking that he was cheating on her, yet warned him not to check the website so she could have time to do damage control and stop the readers from talking bad about him? Specifically calling him a cheater? While she believed she was cheating? How does this make sense?

    she didn’t do it specifically to hurt Gunther, going on a vacation is different from actively trying to break up a couple. If she didn’t go on the trip, it would have caused resentment between her and Gunther as she would feel like he’s holding her back, if he went along, it ALSO would have caused resentment as he would feel like she’s dragging him around places he doesn’t want to go. Going their separate ways for a time was the best thing to preserve their relationship (assuming they communicated during that time)

    when people inadvertently speak a personal truth…a spontaneous confession…believe them.

    Stef deliberately posted the photo with a ‘cute couple’ tag, even though she knew better. Some people cannot parse having just a ‘friend’ of the opposite sex. Then she stood back and ’stirred the pot."

    No, you ruined/(damaged at least) the relationship by being selfish……

    Cheerleader’s ongoing references to those she addresses as some sort of variation on Marion Knight is more than a bit patronizing.

    Off topic. What’s with Patrick McDonnell and his strip “Mutts”? Is he specializing in making readers feel bad for the holidays?

    Stef should turn that thing on her hair around backward. Then she would have eyes in the back of her head!

    (My best guess is that this is something intended to be a sleep aid keeping light out of her eyes, but that is a guess.)

    So is Bets repentant or not?? I’m confused.

    What Bets said may not be congruent with Stef’s presumptions, but it’s the Truth! —For better or for worse….
