Ookay...

Looks like we're about to get Becky looking for advice on a lesbian affair.
(Maybe the "longing" for Joyce and the overcompensating for Dina... Or maybe she did the hanky-panky and felt bad afterwards...)

Would make an interesting story... but to bring that in NOW???
As unlikely as Ben's suggestion is, I'm hoping it's true... (it might not *ring* true that she's gone there for that reason, but commme onnnn...!!!)

Billie and Walky were good friends until high school, obviously they had something in common.

Billie's drunken car wreck was mentioned before a long time ago but I don't remember the bit about hurting her friend.

Yea, they never mentioned she was in the car with Billie. That information definitely adds more weight to how she reacted when meeting Billie again.

Fuck. I completely forgot about that. August 2014 feels like a lifetime ago.

Regarding today's, of course the only sauce Joyce likes is the one I hate most.

My Latina wife uses LOTS of mayonesa; my white ass tolerates it on sandwiches or elote (or "loaded corn-on-the-cob" as some white people are calling it).

We both avoid ketchup. I don't think there's even a bottle of it here at home.

I still think we're not going to find out anything until he fails to show up for their calculus midterm tomorrow (in comic time).

Or maybe he shows up to the calc midterm with a cast on his leg or something. But whatever it is, we're not finding out until then.

So 2024, got it. Also Joyce's mom 100% made those calls, right?

Sure sounds like it. Either that or Hank is lying.

I think Hank is lying, he keeps giving mom the side eye. He doesn't want her to know he was trying to give Joyce the head's up.

Agreed.  He probably wants to warn Joyce and Becky about the Toe.

Looks like you called it, but I'm confused about how he put it: "My church wants to get Becky's dad out on bail"? I thought he was there when Blaine came in and offered to pay in full? I thought he would be well aware that Ross is already out?

IIRC he was not there, nor would I have expected him to be. The Ross situation seems to be one on which the Brown family is quite strongly divided.

Am I reading too much into todays strip, or is anyone else feeling chills? The fact we can't see her moms face...chilling.

I don't think that it was necessary to show Carol's face. I'm sure if we could, it would be as disturbing as the face of a suicide bomber in the last few seconds before their bomb went off: A smile; bliss. The complete certainty of imminent sainthood and the sight of paradise. The face of someone who feels nothing but hate for others and is sure that God is patting her on the back and urging her on.

The reason why Willis not showing her face, IMO, is to emphasise the fact that she's become a stranger to Joyce. She's coming to realise that she doesn't know her mother; probably has never known her and only can perceive this terrible stranger breathing threats at her and those whom she loves.

It's because she's wearing her husband's face on top of her own......   :evil: :evil: :evil:
