Irene: the fourth heart in the crappy ending machine....

As you will recall, Lynn likes to talk about how, back when her first husband was cheating on her, his girlfriend was laughing at her behind her back. Since Connie was transformed from a straw feminist antagonist into the single Lynn who was stuck with a child, it makes sense that this person be somehow turned into a background character: Ted's very temporary wife, Irene. Lynn more or less gave the game away when she had Connie take Elly aside and tell her that back when she and Ted were dating, Irene was pretty much the 'other woman'. Ted's reaction to her finally breaking it off is somewhat telling; when John called him out on his philandering ways, our boy stood there like a goof and said that none of the other relationships actually mattered. What this tells me is that John is the most mature adult male in the strip; Phil, as I've explained, is a member of Robert Ringer's Diaper Corps and Ted is way too high school for his own good.
