Hmmmmm. A benign slice of life strip that has Mike acting like a real five-year-old; what a rarity.
Panel 1: It's late at night and Mike has been woken by a sudden thunderstorm.
Panel 2: He walks briskly down the hallway squeezing the stuffings out of Super Teddy as the thunder crackles on. His expression is one of terror.
Panel 3: He awakens Elly and says that he and Teddy wanted to see if she and John were scared.
Summary: If Elly were a normal human being, we could agree with the Yahoovians and Coffee Talkers that her next step would be to allow him to snuggle next to her and ride out the storm. That's certainly what the Elly of the real Early Years would have done. New-Ruin Elly, on the other hand, would deliver unto him a lecture about his being a baby and frog-march him back to his room to spend the night cowering in terror as John's pleas that she show mercy go unheard.
