I had a flashback planned that showed some of the problems with Lyn and Blaine, but I couldn't make it work and fit this part of the story. So I scrapped it and I'll use it in the next John and Lyn arc where it'll work better in a different context.
We don't frequently see a sad Lyn like we did yesterday, so having the flashback stay up on the site all weekend would have been a bummer paired with Thursday's strip. So when I decided to move the flashback, I knew I wanted to have assertive Lyn come back and I changed up some dialogue and took from a different strip and came up with this.
Plus, it gave me the excuse to end on the Professor Elemental reference
. Yes, that's why Lyn needed to have someone give her pants... I'm a dork.
