9 CL: Tuesday preview -- ...and a second-day-of-the-week cliffhanger...
9 CL: ...and Wednesday preview -- Would you believe "third-day-of-the-week cliffhanger?" Since Amos appears to be buying an engagement ring (on the salary of a Julliard 'cello student, of course), irony would appear to demand that she doesn't have a bun of Pure Art in the oven after all.
9 CWL: I'm guessing you're right. The reason she's all weepy is that she'll have to resign from the corps de ballet and tear up her contract with the clothing company. Odds are that she'll somehow resent the little girl she'll have on some level or another for decades to come because she's too stupid to realize that she was about to get dropped from both because in the Brookiverse, authority figures torment people because they can.
So Edda will become a stage mom who will put all her broken dreams on her daughter? I shudder to think if it was a boy.
Well, we might as well pencil in his having to be forced into outing himself by an elderly gay man from Texas down right now. Also, his shock that his wife and eighteen children already God-damned knew that he was gay before he did.
I thought the ballet company already canned her for taking off to Vienna..
She doesn't know that. What's more, it'll take her forty years to know that.
I bet she isn't. She came in all distraught about her presumed situation and the doctor is telling her that she doesn't have to worry about it any more.
Thus she and Amos will start to try in earnest soon. And we'll be there in the bedroom (and the sofa, and on top of the refrigerator) every step of the way.
This is my guess too. Edda has made such a big deal about being pregnant to her relatives, it will be humiliating to her to have to announce she never even annointed the stick.
Besides, I can't see Brooke writing this comic strip with a pregnant Edda. He is so obsessed with her sex life and drawing her in poses, I can't see him giving that up. Even when he draws Gran romance, he constantly goes to drawing her younger self.
Yup. Plus we'll hear this claptrap about how her choice was to have the baby and how she didn't even "get" to make the choice and blah blah whatever. Yay moralizing.
Agreed with this whole thread. I really think Brooke would rather bring in a straw man character to play out a pregnancy and the whole "choosing to keep it" plot.
I'm wondering...maybe the doctor told her that not only isn't she pregnant, their tests revealed that she can't have children at all.
That would be a twist though there would be a relief that we'll have less Burber spawn.
I also thought it was a no-go, and she's crying because part of her is disappointed about it, or confused, or whatever.
Though now that I read it again, "happy outcome" could mean she is pregnant, because some people (like this doctor, maybe) default to the idea that it's a good thing, even if it might not be.
Speaking of which, who is this doctor to make any assumptions on whether this is a happy outcome or not? It's not his baby. He should keep his personal opinion out of it.
Thus she and Amos will start to try in earnest soon.
Good Lord...three solid weeks of nothing but hand-jive strips...
Pibgorn: Another round of torture Drusilla, or as I call, the standard Pibgorn plot for the last several years.
Then again, he pretty much tortures all the females in one form or another.
