I don't think he'll leave us hanging with a guest week - twitter sez he wants to get this arc over with. 

I'm thinking we'll be seeing the morning after a bad decision on Dora's part...




...and Jim doing a booty dance.   :-P

If everyone uses their good judgment, we can have drama in the comic without drama in the forum.

Please remember:
o Jeph has said that he never writes his characters to be entirely right or entirely wrong.
o The forum member who's disagreeing with you is probably doing so because s/he is bringing different life experiences to bear.
o Don't insult the other person.
o Don't get into a fight simply because you're provoked. If someone says something insulting, first they can't actually damage you, second, if you just wait then a moderator will take care of it.

I noticed in the comments for Friday's strip Jeff says he wants to do the next few weeks of comics right.

This suggests to be we may be seeing the beginning of some new story arcs.

Not likely, he'd still have to finish off the Date arc, and we're still in the middle of the Party arc as well, so when he referes to the next few weeks of comics, Jeph is probably referring to these arcs.

Gotta hand it to Jeph. He is nothing if not dedicated to the quality of his comics and its storylines.

Not if Jeph predicted caterwauling forumites.  I don't see anyone here caterwauling over Jim being a perfect gentleman and Dora being ... whatever it was Hanners was being on the pretend date.

Are the date and the party long enough to be considered arcs? To me arcs would be like Are they or aren't they? with Marten and Faye, Dora and Marten; the couple, I wonder if maybe we are about to see the closing of the Dora and Marten; the breakup story arc.

But then again the party has been mentioned for a long time (real time) and so has the date, so it would depend on how you define it.

My vote is Dora and Jim have a lovely time, then as he's walking her to her car they have an unfortunate run-in with the rest of the group after some serious party foul-level drinking--or, just Tai with her pants off???

Next;

Jim and Dora go on a nationwide crime and robbery spree dragging Tai and Faye into it and wind up 'Killing' each other in a botched Bank robbery.

Hmmm

I just finished a marathon archive binge (because I was bored), and i have to say; Jeph's art is pretty frakking incredible nowadays.

Also, I couldn't help but giggle at today's strip. This date feels so much more relaxed when compared to some of the other ones Jeph has depicted in the past. I kind of like this dynamic Dora and Jim have.

This is either going to be a "perfectly normal" date, or something is going to go horribly wrong which will result in Marten visiting Dora at Framingham.

But Dora will have escaped, and Marten will complain he psyched himself up for the prison visit for nothing.

You win.

I second this statement.

Wow, and cue the first strip in which I have genuinely liked Jim!  He's not being bitter or creepy, and he and Dora have a good rapport.  They seem to be at least half-joking in the last panel, but we'll see . . .  For some reason, I imagine Pintsize would be most disappointed to not get in on some bank-robbing action.

The impending awkward moment (there has to be at least one, right?) may be a few strips away.  Morning after their date, Dora's about to head home and catches post-party Tai rooting around in the garage -- her Dad's garage.  Jim walks out, calls Tai "Pumpkin", Dora and Tai are stunned.  Pure conjecture, of course, and YES I'LL STOP NOW.   :-P 

Also, the poll has made me hungry.

Actually, I would posit that purple elephants do not contribute to the ruination of everything forever in any way.
