Foobocaust Six: John and April.

Now, it occurs to me that in the little scenario I've described, Elly and Liz would be incapable of delaing with events in any sort of rational fashion. John, on the other hand, might actually be able to cope with this sort of thing. You see, his fixation on model railroading seems to be some sort of displacement behavior because he cannot or WILL NOT deal with Elly, the primary source of stress in his life, because he was raised never to raise his hand or voice in anger to a woman. This sort of body blow might just knock all the complacency out of him and stir him to some sort of positive action. At any rate, it might remind him where his priorities actually lie. With his head back in the game, he'd soon find another clear-thinking individual right under his nose: April. The loss of Mike would probably open her eyes up to what's really important: the needs of a four-year-old child. The two of them would be most active in trying to keep Merrie in the fold. At the very least, they'd make sure she didn't end up in foster care.
