As we've seen, the touching series of strips we saw last week were simply a lead-in to the Settlepocalypse. I'd like to think that Liz's stunned reaction meant she was reconsidering the whole thing but I know that we'll end up watching two morose jerks who look like they can barely stand one another listlessly agree that they guess they've set their wedding date.

Well, we've got two morose jerks but they aren't setting a date.

Panel 1: We see Liz at the TTH talking to Elly. For once, neither of them is drinking coffee. Liz, with head in hands as if picking a date for things was such a burden it threatens to overwhelm her, again restates her desire to take things slowly as far as the wedding is concerned. Elly says of course she does which means that if she wants to take things slow, go right ahead.

Panel 2: After all, Grampa Jim saw her in the Miracle Dress and doesn't have to walk her down the aisle. This makes little sense because that's Train Man's job but this is one Patterson trying to reassure another; sense is irrelevant.

Panel 3: She then says that he's probably happy knowing she has a definite plan for the future. Given that that plan involves only doing things in response to one panic or another, I'd be less reassured but (in the words of eeknight) I'm not some stinking Foob drama queen.

Panel 4: She then wraps it up by saying that Liz should do what feels best for her 'cause it's her life to live. I wish she had done so without looking as if she were trying to feel her daughter up but that's just me.

Panel 5: This, for some reason, causes Liz to state that a summer wedding is a damned good idea. Elly doesn't know it but she just gave Liz permission to get something done.

Hypothesis: We had to endure all this "take it slow" crap Liz was spouting because she didn't want to tell us the truth; that's because she didn't have the decency to say that she was looking for someone to tell her she wasn't making a mistake. Now that she's found someone who did so, she can not take things slow.

ETA: In case you missed it, the Reload supposedly starts 29 September 2008. That is, of course, assuming Lynn doesn't cave into the pressure from her loyal fans and keeps this thing going.

    Panel One: Pretty straightforward. Hard to snark Balding Teacher very much. April and Silhouette are the only students, but otherwise, this is just…

    Placeholder. All I have to say is, we already HAD an April's-overloaded-backpack gag. And in panel 2, both she and that other girl look very odd.

    My sincerest apologies for the late delivery, folks. I was out to dinner with a friend and it ran later than I'd expected :/ Behold, our first…
