Liz and Jim: I sing the bond non-existent.

It seems odd that Jim's failing health might be what causes Liz to finally set a date fo the Settlepocalypse because she and he were never that close. As qnjones reminds us, he used to have a one-way bond with Mike and a full-fledged one with April but seems to have somehow ignored Liz. My memory of that time is somewhat hazy but, given Lizzie's timid nature, it seems to me that he couldn't get her to open up or, for that matter, stop clinging to Elly's leg in blind panic. The little child who couldn't overcome her fear of the unfamiliar grew into the awkward teenager who took not dealing with him too much as a given and, since she's more or less still in high school, still doesn't have much use for him. This is why she's angrily baffled by April's outrage that she bequeathed his beloved harmonica to a thief who wanted a souvenir from someone who broke her word to him. Since Jim means little to her, arguing about his posessions seems sort of pointless.
