For help on how to follow a comic title,
hmmm wonder if we’ll see a follow-up arc with Ann coming back for revenge and her Brother swooping in to stop her.
1) Ann doesn’t like to admit defeat, especially to those whom she feels superior to, which is usually what gets her in the end. (Remember TJ)
2) Tiff has done a lot of growing, while she’s probably elated that Ann has been busted, she’s also legitimately upset because she realized her dad WAS happy
I doubt Tom did anything more than maybe sign for a car and give her a credit card on one of his accounts (like Tiffany), and remember he is a “top lawyer” so I’m sure if ann tries to soak him on her way out she’ll be busted.
Ironically I think this was a fitting ending. Clearly Ann left the sonogram tucked like that as a backup plan in case he didn’t propose on his own. wonder how often the “maid” (that was supposedly laid off) cleaned those photos seeing it there. Of course Tiffany would probably have not gone snooping if Ann had not attempted to “replace” her by claiming her personal space.
dare we hope that this is the end of Ann Eiffel and Tom Ferrell as a couple?Seeing the two ultrasounds in the same place does lend credence to why there’s no modern metadata around it (it’s cropped copy of a 20 year old ultrasound)
there’s a simpler answer…“Kill her with kindness” Turn it around, Tiff should sound very “interested” in the child and start pushing her dad to be involved… insist that he should be driving her to her appointments, lamaze (spelling?) classes, couples baby-yoga… suggest every manner of him getting up in ann’s business… If she’s wrong, well then at least she’s certain daddy’s invested in the baby but if Tiff is right, then Ann is going to have a hard time keeping up her lie.
Remember my earlier comments? – Ultrasounds having “metadata” around the image edges and usually on the readouts?
Yeah, I’m curious what’s going to become of it – seems to me that would be there and would make it difficult for Ann to pass a reproduction of les’s ultrasound as a new “baby” not to mention at this point Tom’s going to presumably have a vested interest in Ann’s health and well being if he thinks she’s carrying his child.
also, especially after her last drama with Tiffany doing the sudden “oh I’m pregnant, do everything for me” that she is not showing. I mean yeah, every woman’s different, but I would not think a woman that pregnant would be wearing such “form flattering” clothing.
last but not least, Ann is no spring chicken, she’s at the very least mid-30s if she had Les while she was in High School, most likely older given the apparent age of her Big Brother.
Speaking of which, why has it not occurred to Les to inform Uncle Al…
Thoughts that occur to me:
1) Ultrasounds these days usually have “metadata” on the edges of the image identifying the patient receiving the ultrasound. Usually the mother’s name (at least the last name) is clearly visible.
2) That ultrasound baby is pretty well developed.Arms, hands, Fingers, Feet and Toes are formed in the 3rd month. Unless Tom is spending very little time with his GF, he should have noticed various signs (Morning sickness etc), Ann would also be “visibly pregnant” – i.e. those slender pants would not be comfortable.
I can’t help but wonder other ways this could spectacularly backfire For example, where is Tiff’s mom? No mention of her, I can recall and I’ve been reading for years… apparently she’s been out of the picture for quite a while and unless it was a dramatic death, it looks like she was pretty easily cleared out of the picture. It wouldn’t be hard to see Tom getting tired of Ann or seeing it as an attempt to trap him… he could easily sue for sole custody and leave her for nothing (in most states you’ve got to be married for several years before can request support) Then it would be nothing for him to raise the child just like tiff… Latch-key kid handled by various “staff”.
I mean let’s face it, he’s either oblivious or doesn’t care how his mistress his treating his daughter. it’s only a matter of time before he leaves her for something better and I doubt spawning another child is going to affect him too much.
I’m rather disappointed in Tom (and greg), we had a “gotcha” moment yesterday and nothing became of it.
See this is where Tiff should have offered to be “super honest” and go "Hi dad, Ann was just telling me she laid off all the staff because you were having money problems and was suggesting I cover for housekeeping since “she” is providing me with free room and board in our home.
So, filling in the gaps here, I’d say dad asked her to house sit while they are gone.since the luannaverse does not seem to be struck by plague.Presumably summer classes are on break (there was no hint that the blackout party was a end of semester party)
Most likely she bombed a major test, as i doubt the single class would be over so soon.
BUT since our dear author didn’t bother to give us such clues on this storyline we must of course assume.
Also note the past tense in ann’s wording – clearly they can afford a chef and a housekeeper, (I seriously don’t think she’s hinting that tif is the new housekeeper full time)
