This will probably not go as well as he'd hope at first because of Liz's instinctive need to cling to a surrogate of Elly's ankle in order to protect herself from a looming shape of idiot malice. It will probably take years of her suspecting his lunk-headed, regular-dumb-guy-from-the-sticks attempt to try to make up for being a dickhole before she admits that she gave as good as she got as soon as she could outrun the dumb bastard. It'll take longer before she admits that they were fighting for the same worthless prize.
What this means is that in the long run, Elly will finally get children who don't blow up into a big ball of violence over every little thing. She just has to die so that the need to be loved the best won't spark off the mindless mangling. Chee! Elly's transition from entity to object does seem to solve a lot. As I'll show you tomorrow, it'll even make John a faithful husband who appreciated what she did and how much she sacrificed.
