Can we talk about how in today's episode, Wooton answers a fan question about a relationship by saying that a serious relationship would "change a character too much"? Seems the AIO team is being very self-aware lately.

What now, Tiger? I'm behind the times. Make use of our spoilers and tell me what happened, if you please.

Nothing major in the spoiler department. Wooton was answering questions at his fan panel at Comic-Connellsville and was asked why the character with the potential for a "serious relationship" with Captain Absolutely ended up being sent to Germany. His response was that being in a serious relationship would drastically alter the character and so the love interest was written out of the comic—apparently, she got an opportunity to specialize in her field. ;)

I guess they are trying to shut up the rumors about Jason, Jeff, and Connie. There must be a spy among us.

I think it's actually a reference to Mitch.

Does anybody else get a real strawman vibe from Miss Adelaide? She honestly seems like more of a mockery of what she claims to believe than someone who actually upholds those ideas.

AHH!! I can't listen to it!

Here is what I thought:
I think the Jay went a little too crazy when Buck showed up. And why do people keep going over that Buck's been in jail? He really is trying to change. I think that people should stop worrying about how they are going to act around him and just start talking to him.

Wooton proposed to Penny!!

Hmmmm....with all the refrences to Connie getting married, it just could happen soon! I hope so!

Makes sense to me. You kind of answered your own question—Buck has been in jail. There is a considerable (and arguably reasonable) amount of stigma against criminals in our society, and since Buck was so young, that makes it even worse—he's fourteen and he's done things that have gotten him incarcerated. People are going to be wary around him, especially people who don't know him very well, or who, like Polehaus, aren't the forgiving type. I'm not saying they're right to be judgmental or to spread rumors about him, but all of them shouldn't be realistically expected to handwave everything he did, especially since many of the people suspicious of him are kids who have no idea how to handle a reformed criminal who is their age.

First they have Penny/Wootons wedding. Unless the do a double wedding! I didn't notice references to Connie getting married. Please name some?

I didn't catch that either.

Please please please not to Jeff. That would be too....easy. He comes from her past and all of a sudden they fall for each other and they get married--all because he's her First Love and now he's a Christian so there are no obstacles!

yes it's partly because I want Jason/Connie but it'll take a lot for me to warm up to him, perhaps never enough for me to really want him for Connie.

I hope she marries one of the three:
Jason
Mitch
Jeff. Maybe they'll marry her off in the next album.

To be quite honest, I don't think Connie's going to get married anytime soon, especially because A. Her mother's death - They're not going to have her get married soon after that B. The Wooton/Penny thing - Connie's romantic life isn't going to interrupt or overshadow theirs, I don't think AIO would do that.

I think so to. I mean they can't do it now really. It would be weird.

I noticed The Ties that Bind is cleverly arranges a saga, and social issues together. So far, marriage, the Sabbath, and another (Mr. Whittaker's conversation with Miss Adelaide).

That's kind of the point of the whole album. ;)

I guess it's not really hints to her getting married, more like her having kids.

I found about two: When Connie opens the trunk and finds out that her Mom was keeping those papers for her kids. And when Connie was talking in the 1st or 2nd episode about how her mom wouldn't be there to see her kids.

I do agree, if Wooton and Penny did get married it would be too soon, for Connie to get married right after that

Those were the only references I noticed too.

I was just wondering what everyone (everyone who listened to the whole album, that is) thought of my review of it on JAAIOB. I'm starting to kind of regret the harshness I reviewed it with, so I would appreciate it if you could confirm or deny my regrets. :)
