Mary Worth 2248

I literally thought Olive was going to say "As long as I don't have to go to school."

I, for one, hate to see this tale come to a close. It's been a great break from all the plot-rich, character driven stories we normally have to endure.

Today's full strip

So much for Olive's personal growth over this unnaturally prolonged holiday season. She's still afraid of the water. That's the problem with dihydrogen monoxide, it's dangerous on so many levels. In its liquid state it can cause drowning, as a solid it leads to multiple injuries, and in its gaseous form can cause severe burns. The substance really should be banned.

@fauxprof at 9:01 a.m., righto! Maybe we can start a campaign on Facebook to ban that awful stuff.

Wanders, re your secret message, there is still time for Olive to do something. Maybe she can divert Mary's plane to Hoboken.

If Olive visits Mary in Santa Royale, will Evy and Ed notice her absence?

It seems that either the Empire State Building put up glass that can become opaque when your quarter runs out or New York City was just hit by a 70 story flood.

Wanders, don't forget the vision Olive had about the homeless man's bright future at Pierre's Bakery. That has to count for something.

There are two things that should happen in this incredibly dull episode to give it any redeeming value. 1. Jobo the bum must find a job as the clairvoyant special child predicted. 2. Heloise must return to visit Mary in NYC before she leaves. On the plus side, at least we are finally done with the life/skating analogies!

Boy, that Mary really gets right to it, doesn't she? Her plan has been, all along, to abduct Olive, bring her to Santa Royale and then program the little Stepford child into her clone!

Wanders, are you being ironic in your post? The love story between the former security agents was indeed action-packed, and the marital drama between Toby Cameron (sigh! my favorite! where is she now?) and her hubby Ian was character-driven and, in my opinion, riveting!

In any case, I can't wait to have Mary back at the Charterstone pool so that she can regale me with her adventures as we sip margaritas together!

Even then, I found the whole "Don't go near the pool" warning rather pointless. As that would imply Olive's guardian angel knew about it ahead of time, so if she could see Olive potentially drown, she didn't see Mary potentially saving her? Even then, isn't it the Guardian Angel's job to save Olive regardless? "Don't go near the pool, I could save you, but it would save me the trouble if you just don't fall in at all"
