We end the week with the start of the next phase of the revenge on Ted fantasy when John tells Elly that Ted's response to not having Connie in his life was to marry his secretary.

(Strip Number 4553, Original Publication Date, 18 January 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching a worried-looking John taking off his winter coat now that he's at home for the day. When Elly asks what's wrong, he explains that Ted never showed up at the medical centre that day.

Panel 2: John does the palms-out thing when he explains that he knew Ted had been acting odd lately but he didn't expect whatever happened to happen.

Panel 3: When Elly reminds him that the final breakup with Connie did a real number on Ted, she asks John how he's taking it.

Panel 4: When John tells her that Ted has just married his secretary, Elly is astonished.

Summary: This phase of the revenge fantasy seems to be all about how Ted is such a desperate wacko, he'll marry anything that doesn't move too quickly.
