Now that we've established that Mike is all remorseful, it's sort of obvious that John and Elly will begrudgingly consent to giving Frank a more dignified send-off than simply flushing him.

Panel 1: We start off with Mike, who's suddenly sixty-two, sniffling and pointing out that Frank looks different now that he's dead; he doesn't LOOK like Frank any more. Manipulation level: 1.8. Creepiness Factor 7.6

Panel 2: Eyeless Eight Foot Tall Elly says that she found him a little coffin so they can bury him outside. Two Foot Tall Mike thanks her. Manipulation level: 3.7. Creepiness Factor: 7.7.

Panel 3: Mike notices it's a jewelry box and says "Cool." M.L.: 3.9. Creepiness factor: 7.8.

Panel 4: After they bury him, Elly says that Frank is buried now and oddly happy John asks if anyone would like to say a few words. ML: 5.9. CF: 7.9.

Panel 5: Lizzie says bye-bye: ML: 9.9. CF: 8.8.

Summary: This is, of course, a contrived piece of bullcrap designed to overwhelm the glurge receptors of KAN; seeing this maudlin nonsense will have the desired result of their smugly pointing out that Elly does after all care for her children despite this being the sort of thing that a crazy woman would do to further cement her hold on her children.

ETA: Lynn's got some big sale going on on her webpage. If you want stuff autographed by Lynn, this is your chance.
