Now that Mike's at school, I expect Lynn to pick up from where she left off yesterday and have Elly moan about how empty her life is now that he's in school; this will, of course, lead directly into a sequence wherein she gets to kick Rod in the groin by having John veto Elly's plan to get a part-time job.

First, of course, she has to undo one of her biggest stumbling blocks to going to straight reprints: the premature disappearance of Deanna Sobinski.

Panel 1: As Mike and Lawrence find their seats, the future Noble Scribe reminds his pal that they hafta sit in alphabetical order so he sits before Lawrence; Lawrence is so used to Mike speaking in Lynnglish that he says that's okay.

Panel 2: After all, if Mike is in front, the teacher will noitce him first. Mike smirks at the reminder that he'll be a disruptive influence all his school life.

Panel 3: As Miss Campbell ushers Deanna to her desk, Mike thought-bubbles her name as he never thought he'd see her again.

Panel 4: Mike tells Lawrence Deanna's here and has returned; Lawrence wonders why.

Panel 5: Mike smiles and thought-bubbles that maybe it's because she missed him.

Summary: Actually, Mike, you weren't involved in the decision to return at all; what happened is that Lynn has decided to hand-wave away a foul-up by givng Mira yet another scraping. Watching yet another extended sequence of how Evil Mira's Evil Ambition ruins everyone's happiness is going to be a lousy way to fill in the gap that the premature arrival of Farley created but it's the only way Lynn knows how to fill the gap her stupidity created.
