Wow, definitely didn’t see that coming. Um, I know it’s not going to be pretty when Ethan does break up with her(since it looks like we’re heading down that road in a hurry) but I hope at the very least she doesn’t hear about the Scott part. I have to ask though….is the glasses? Please tell me it’s not just the glasses. :p

One of two possibilities
1. Emily reminds Ethan of Scott, which is why Scott is subconciously trying to break up with her.
2. Ethan is Gay.

Answer is likely number 1. Answer is definitely not 2, because this storyline is setting up for Ethan to break up with Emily and continue to pursue Lilah the journalist.

He’s clearly not that much into Emily, so I think he’s not into Scott as well. So I would not go with the “he’s gay” theory.

No. He just relates Emily to Scott, sees them as comparable. Obviously Ethan likes Lilah.

But I second your statement about skin colour. Prime is not white, Lilah is.

Hazmat Suit, the Hulkbuster Iron Man Suit worn over it, full White Fatalis Gear over THAT, a chainsaw, a flamethrower and a blaster set to “portable Death Star”.

You are in fact missing something Tim! Let’s go by the clues this comment left and see what it’s trying to do: 1) Persons name is Trump Fore Ever 2) Using the term NPC 3) The context is in relation to Ethan responding to the word Emily with Scott With these clues we find that this person is referring to a current meme used by right-leaning basement dwellers to basically ignore any concept, idea, or critique from the left-leaning types on the grounds that they are “NPC’s”: soulless humanoids that look like people, but repeat the same phrase each time… Read more »

As a Trump fan who actually loves this comic, allow me to suggest that Trump Fore Ever May not even be a legit Trump supporter and may be someone on the left attempting to spread the negative view some have of us Right-leaning geeks.

As someone who agrees with John, let me just say that this guy is more than likely a troll in lieu of an actual Trump supporter. The NPC meme is meant to be used to point out hypocricy, not to dismiss other viewpoints.

Except I see more left leaning snowflakes exhibiting those qualities for the past 2 years, I would suspect that the commenter uses that screen name to make people think he is right-wing when he is not.

So It’s probably a troll. It’s hard to believe anybody could misspell the word “for” by accident. That being said, throwing around derogatory words on a forum will never go anywhere pleasant.

Is it a leap though? The combination of the content of the original comment being extremely thin and the obviously bad misspelling seems a bit much. On this forum you can enter any name you like and comment and (I’m sorry for the conjecture if it’s misplaced) but a seemingly different user had a very well-worded and consise response about a relatively obscure meme literally fifteen minutes later.

Yeah, that’s what we need to do. Bring shitty politics into this. THAT’S what this webcomic’s been missing. Take that shit somewhere else.

I don’t know about you guys, but I think that Emily is reminding Ethan of Scott’s RELATIONSHIP, not Scott himself. It seems that Scott was good friends with a woman, dated her (I think), and ruined it completely. As such, Ethan is worried that he will lose Emily in the same way that Scott lost his ex-girlfriend.

Interesting. Didn’t knew or forgot that Scott ruined his relationship, I thought she died or something. Ethan’s explanation for “Scott” next page gonna be interesting for sure.

I think she’s still alive, but I could be wrong. I think it’s brought up on one of the other Thanksgiving pages oddly enough.

In fairness, one’s death does tend to ruin one’s relationship, especially if the survivor feels in any way responsible for it.

My thought here was “Ethan’s relationship with Emily is as temporary as Lukas’ relationship with Scott”. That’s why Ethan felt reminded of Scott when he heard “Emily”.

Right, my bad. Now I remember. Thanks for clearing that up. It was Andrew I thought of. I guess mostly because that could have made sense. But Scott… well… now I’m as confused as most others here…

To all the people thinking Ethan has gone gay, I really doubt that is the case. My take away from this is maybe he feels Scott and Emily would be a good match together. We will have to wait and see though.

Ditto. I get the impression he thinks they’d be a better fit than her with him.

I mean it’s hard for me to empathize with Lucas here because IS the reason why Ethan is in a relationship with her in the first place, by using that mis-guided “just ask a random girl out” approach. I could see this situation coming a mile away!

Maybe Ethan so strongly believes that he is unable to have a proper relationship that he’s trying to predict the failure of a strong and healthy one.

Scott is pretty upset last thanksgiving comic when asked by lucas if he is ready to start dating again. To the point where I kind of assumed that maybe his girlfriend had died. I also kind of wonder if Scott and Ethan’s sister were dating. Ethan’s sister gets killed walking home from a movie, and Scott gets injured? Somehow tying into Ethan not wanting a relationship while Scott still hurts over Ethan’s sister? Maybe not sensible, but sometimes peoples minds do weird things. Just spitballing, and maybe Emily’s face just reminds Ethan of Scott somehow and he subconsciously does not… Read more »

Also, in reading back in the archives to see if Scott made any mention of Ethan’s sister (did not find), I found a fun one where Capt. Prime indeed saw A&D’s future, namely worrying about vandalism.
