For help on how to follow a comic title,
Y’all beat me to it in expressing this concern. I smell a search warrant coming. What if Tiff’s new roomie turns out to be a dealer? Tiff is definitely not out of the proverbial woods, yet. The Evans may be setting her up to seek a new sugar daddy, and that will not end well. The Thanksgiving feint with Tom will end up being a Christmas bombshell: Annie will be getting a ring from Mr. Farrell.
Yup, I see the Evans setting her up for a career in sales…which could possibly be leading up to a scenario where she outfoxes Annie Awful.
Welcome to reality, Tiff. Nobody owes you anything, in adult life. The last vestiges of the spoiled rich girl are what we are witnessing the death of, here.
I’ll play, and will be the supreme pessimist.
Tom’s gonna die enroute. The weather is horrid. I’ve been calling for a death for most of the year, although my logical candidate has been Jonah.
Maybe Jonah is driving in sloppy conditions, and gets that “big break” phone call, and plows into Tom, ending both of their lives.
Ann vs Tiff could get VERY interesting, after that, depending on whether they married in secret, and whether or not Tom’s will was amended and finalized in time, or not.
The Evans have made the mobile phone’s power to distract/interrupt/influence a significant plot element for much of the year. The payoff is coming.
Yep, it feels like Daddy’s gonna either stand her up or drop an engagement bombshell.
The DeGroots OWN, whereas Mr. Gray MANAGES. It would be Mr. Gray making the call about being open on Thanksgiving Day.
Know your adverbs, Mord. It’s selflessLY.
There’s your dose of snark.
Nah, that’s too easy, and does not have enough karmic payback. I like my scenario better: Italy is not that far from France, and both are subject to EU law. Time to get Simone of Souffle Lingerie into the revenge mix. If it’s done right, Tom comes back to the States alone, and Annie does her Amanda Knox impression.
It would be simple for the Evans to place Tom, Ann and Simone at some fashion event in Milan, where the deeper details of Annie’s scam might emerge, and Tom comes back to the USA with a new appreciation of his daughter. Between Bets, Simone and Tom, Tiff gets that longed-for career that blends fashion and business as an outcome.
…which is not that far from France, and both are subject to EU law. Time to get Simone of Souffle Lingerie into the revenge mix. If it’s done right, Tom comes back to the States alone.
This arc seems to have a bow tied onto it, with today’s strip. Of course, it’s just a temporary bow. Maybe it’s more like shipping tape, to be cut open when it arrives at an intersection with another arc, like the younger De Groots getting pregnant, Pru moving out to make way for a nursery, and other such possibilites that I have mentioned previously.
Maybe we are due for the demise of Jonah, concurrent with a De Groot pregnancy. The young couple has already been house-shopping, so the seed has been planted for such an arc. That would serve to vacate the Horner cottage that they presently live in, leaving it open for all sorts of residential pairings among the other characters.
