As you know, Lynn likes to have a nice little payoff to arcs like this; I should think that it would somehow involve John being a passive-aggressive tool imploring Elly to never leave him with the kids again.

Whooooooooops. It's that reprint I mentioned that had John leave a mountain of housework for Elly to do.

Panel 1: We're at John's office. As he checks out a patient's X-ray, Jean, who has the Narrowed Eyes of Sarcasm, alludes as to how he survived being a househusband.

Panel 2: As he looks through his files, she asks if he's going to rave on about the floors, the laundry, the dishes and the mess.

Panel 3: He says, as his patient waits for him to get started, that that stuff never bothered him.

Panel 4: You see, he left it all for Elly to clean up.

Summary: Not only does that contradict yesterday's statement about his having things under control and make John look like a sexist piece of shite, it also makes no sense in terms of the new interpretation of events. I can see him letting the housework slide over the weekend that Elly originally spent if he and the kids went out a lot; to do no housework whatsoever over the course of the week she spent in Retconland makes him look like a negligent fool that Elly should never have bothered with.
