Lynn always plots a very good waste.....

The reason that I mentioned the rather confusing new-run is that I personally think that it's in the wrong place entirely. This is because Lynn's need to make sure that Christmas strips fall on Christmas Day could have been achieved in a means that didn't drop a spoiler about Elly's laryngitis into our laps. What I personally believe that we should have seen is last week's arc beginning on Monday with Liz asking John to make it snow, ended on Saturday with the sappy code about warm hearts and on Christmas Eve day itself, a new-run about how a ring is nice and all but what Elly really wanted was that new type of snow tire that's supposed to grip better.

This would also have the benefit of being able to jettison the right strip: the one that has Elly talk about the new decade and what it might hold for them all. Once that was gone, we could have the laryngitis arc begin how it was supposed to with Elly yelling about foraging.  About the only thing that should change from then until next year is when they drop the "I thought your kids liked chocolate" thing this April....and also when April comes into the picture....
