We begin the terminal phase of Connie's direct involvement in the revenge fantasy soap opera arc with her laughingly telling Elly that she's a blatant phony.

(Strip Number 4548, Original Publication Date, 26 December 1985)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching a delighted Mike exclaim that yes, by golly, Lawrence and his mom are sure here.

Panel 2: Despite knowing that she would come, Elly says that she can't believe that Connie is really here either.

Panel 3: She then comments on how great Connie's new hairdo is and she's lost weight and looks ten years younger.

Panel 4: When Connie laughs and says Elly hasn't changed, we can she that Elly doesn't think that's a compliment.

Summary: The interesting thing is not that we're about to return to the soap opera. The interesting thing is that Connie eventually becomes a mere device that tells us how wonderful Elly is.
