And looking back on it, now that the Settleocalypse is upon us, it is infuriating.
In Panels 1 & 2 we have Thérèse being polite, gracious, smiling (ZOMG teh Ebil One can SMILE!) - and in general being a lovely person. I give her major credit for this because after all, this is the mother and sister of her husband's EX-GIRLFRIEND - why are they even there?! (oh that's right JElly paid off Tracey Mayes to destroy her)
Panel 3: We have Elly being a condescending self-righteous twat. As per usual.
Panel 4: The infamous "baby auction". The purpose of this is to show us that no other mother/mother-in-law can be St. Elly and that anyone who does anything different from The Perfect Pattersons are coarse, obnoxious boors (see also: Mira). To be honest, I half took the "auction" as a joke - maybe a little crass - but no worse than "dollar dances" at weddings. But what really gets me in this panel is Anthony. Fucking Anthony with his cringing, pathetic whiny look on his face. You can all but see the "Why couldn't that be Elizabeth!" thought bubble over his head. That's gotta radiate to Thérèse, she's got to feel that.
Yet still the KAN can't understand why some of us loathe Anthony, and think he's a miserable creep.
