Oh, fuck you, Lynn. Fuck you sideways with a wire brush.


Okay, so Elly and John are interacting. But are they in the laundry room, and John's hanging up shirts so he can take them upstairs all at once, or is the ironing board in the bedroom? And in panel 2, it looks like Elly's pulling taffy. But then when I saw the huge clouds of steam emanating from the iron, I remembered what she was doing. I just can't interpret FOOB without these big honking visual cues.

Now, what the heck does John mean, that this scheme was Moira's? Has she talked to him about this before discussing it with Elly? For which I would not blame her: presenting any new idea to Elly just gets you a week's worth of hand-wringing and dithering, ending with Elly storming out because this is all so crazy and she can't deal.

Or is he referring to the original buy-out, when Elly took over the store from Lily and John put up some of the money? Does he mean that Moira wanted to be a co-owner, but couldn't afford it at the time? We have been shown that she has a great deal more on the ball than Elly.

Anyway, so that's where we are. No heart attack, just Elly's inability to haul her whiny ass all the way down the street. Oh, and again, Fuck. You. Lynn.
