Grief is not a plot. The only way this is a plot is if either Mary is hitting on Myster Wynter, or if the two of them discover that they both dabble in the dark arts, and Myster Wynter and Mary Wyrth raise Bella from the dead.
For some reason, the idea that he's waiting a whole week to visit his dead dog made me laugh. Sorry, I'm a terrible person. I suppose the pet cemetery must be some distance away such that to visit requires setting aside substantial time in advance but I can't imagine Saul here doesn't have ample time to visit any day he cares to.
I see that Myster Wynter has a “doggie and daddy” portrait from Petsmart.Mary is going to use this opportunity to find out if there was a Mys. Wynter or any other Wynter’s. Look for Mary to worm her way into Myster Wynter’s will.I predict Toby will be furious that Mary is consorting with the enemy.
Coming next week: A 7-day long drive to the cemetery during which Wynter spends the entire week blubbering about Bella and Mary counters with her never-ending supply of platitudes. Yippee.-- Scottie McW.
Good thing Saul specified “Santa Royale’s pet cemetery.” Otherwise, we’d wonder if Bella might be buried next to Sean Hastings’s first wife.
I can only say I'm thankful I haven't eaten breakfast yet.
If Wynter's life was so great with Bella, how come he was such a curmudgeon at the pool party?
The best advice Mary could give Myster Wynter is for him to go to Medical Group and see the miracle shrink that cured Wilbur in one (!) session. Saul's fixation on Bella is almost beyond pathological. If there are any mental health professionals on Mary Worth and Me, I would really appreciate a tentative diagnosis of what psychiatric disease(s) Saul is suffering from. He needs help, now!
Did he mean to say Pet Sematary? That's a plot twist that could actually liven up this storyline!
How nobody ever ask advice columnist Wilbur Weston for advice?
My interest in this strip has been plummeting since Bogota Beach!If ever we needed a "Several Weeks Later" / Deus ex Machina moment - it is now!
Saul is the inventor of "Wyntergreen" - a flavor ingredient found in most gums and candies - and Santa Royale's wealthiest resident.The only way this plot gets interesting is if 1) Mary and Saul hook up (Adios Dr. Jeff!) Mary gets Saul's personal fortune or 2) Mary buys Saul a new puppy. Puppy outlives Saul. Puppy inherits Saul's fortune. Mary adopts orphaned puppy. Puppy suddenly develops a fatal blood clot. In either case - Toby receives a $500,000 commission to paint a mural of Bella on the side of the Charterstone poolhouse.
MondayWow, its next week already! This is warp speed for the Worthiverse.So the pet cemetery is actually called a generic "Pet Cemetery"? KM is getting lazier. JB's tree reminds me of the apple-throwing trees in The Wizard of Oz. Maybe Saul and Mary will get pelted.
Does it mean anything that it's a week later and Mary and Saul are still wearing the same clothes they previously had on top, but have now switched pants?
I can't believe we are at the cemetery already. I thought we would talk and travel at least a week. But KitKat is right about that tree. There's something downright creepy about those roots.
Will we see Toby kicking over tombstones muttering "how can anyone get attached to a dog?"
You know what cemeteries are really great for? Kite flying!
@ KitKat,Yeah, I had the same thought: generic pet cemetery. I'll bet all the headstones (headstones?!) are marked "DOG," "CAT," "CANARY," etc.-- Scottie McW.
“At least my dog’s not dead,” Wilbur said to himself in the mirror the next morning. “Hmm. Maybe I should get a dog. An old dog. A sick, old dog.”
@MissScarlet: I was looking forward to a week of driving along to the cemetery, platitudes flying left and right! Too bad! SIGH! ... BUT ... Mr. Wynter is a misanthrope! A man after my own heart! YESSSSS!!!!
