Panel 2: Translation: Are you deaf, woman?
Panel 3: Jeez, Elly. It's not a matter of what she can do. She wants to stay with him because she wants to stay with him. Butt out.
Panel 4: :sad:
Well, at least Elly's insistence gives Iris a focus for her distress. Beyond that, I for one would be impressed if this became a matter of deciding whether or not to pull the plug. I know there are some people who would be upset by that, but it would be brave of LJ/the Lynnions to address the issue. However, it's not likely to happen, because as someone said yesterday, she/they are hacks.
