Now that the hospital visit and Liography have happened, we are left to wonder how Lynn will fill the three remaining pre-reload strips. I know that Liz must deliver an Aesop about how family is more important than worldly goods and Jim must dance off to the Void with Marian but am confused about the order.

Panel 1: Liz asks Iris to be honest about Jim's condition. She does so. It seems that Jim is very frail. He'll be back home soon and then it will be necessary to move him into Sunset Acres.

Panel 2: As she points out that he's fallen asleep again, she reassures Liz that seeing her in the Miracle Dress meant the world to him. Liz echoes that she knows because she realizes that "I hope so" sounds less encouraging.

Panel 3: Mister Martyrdom informs Elly that he and Mrs Caine will be staying a bit longer at the hospital but will meet them later at the reception.

Panel 4: We switch back to the park as John asks Elly who phoned. She tells him it was Anthony. Hearing what she wants to hear, she misinterprets the man's words to mean that Jim will bounce back from this instead of slide even more quickly into the grave.

Panel 5: Not having the brains to question Elly's misguided optimism, John says that's a good way to end the story. Elly responds to this stupid attempt at metafiction by saying it's a good way to end today.

Summary: April will find out after the reception is over. She will be called a picky-face by everyone when she objects. Elly must be run over by a steamroller.
