That being said, we have five strips to go before the Strip of Destiny where Lynn, the Tin God of the Morons decides what Mary-Sueish future her creations will have. Today, we must ask the question "Will Liz learn about Jim and, if so, will she give a tinker's cuss?" The answers are "Yes" and "Yes".
Panel 1: We start off with the happy couple being congratulated for finally getting married by the people who worked so hard to make sure it happened. They loadad the dice against Therese and want to party down.
Panel 2: Liz tells Anthony that there are two people conspicuous by their absence: Jim and Iris. She's so stunned that she has to remind Anthony that Chin-nuts is her grandfather.
Panel 3: She asks Elly where they are and is told that Jim is in hospital for some undisclosed reason and could not attend.
Panel 4: Liz says that they have to go to him instead. Elly whiningly asks if she has to go now. They have a big ugly reception to attend, after all. At this juncture, a person who was allowed to express her feelings would tell her selfish idiot bitch of a mother to die in a fire. Liz does not.
Panel 5: She instead finally says I do. This is her way of saying that she has to deliver a speech about how people are more important than all the teal-and-lavender freebies in the world some time this week.
Prediction: Jim will die thinking she's Marian. He will dance with her spirit into Batiuk's Great White Void. Liz will deliver a mildly hypocritical speech about how people matter more than worldly goods. I will be violently ill.
