    Drop the knife and step away from the onion, Gunther! It didn’t do anything wrong. lol

    Looks like Bets is having a fun time at ColossalCon without Gunther. That B*tch!!! ;)

    So should he try to get her back or move on and find happiness elsewhere?

    I kinda feel Bets dodged a bullet here more than Gunther. She really didn’t deserve to spend her days holed up in the gulag avoiding gunny’s mother, sharing a bathroom with Les, and putting up with Guth’s now very apparent insecurities. Good for her.

    I’m not sure why virtually no one ever mentions a very simple interpretation – Bets expresses her freedom as a human being to continue on a road trip by herself – a brave thing given traditional gender roles – while Gunt expresses his agency by, umm, returning for college, right? Hello? Why does it all have to be about her ‘separating’ herself from him, his letting her ‘walk all over her,’ etc? Yes, her social networking nonsense can be really annoying, but it seems like there is a lot of sexism here.

    I wonder if Bets is really happy as she looks in the photo or it’s all a scene and she too is sad and angry about Gunther’s leaving her, the peoples in the cons probably are asking her about him and she could smile in her selfies even if she’s angry. Gunther is more and more nervous, he doesn’t seem willing to admit that not being with Bets makes him feel bad. He should face reality, call her or at least talk to someone about it. It would be interesting to see him talk to Quill about this, but I doubt he’ll be back (sigh). The best hope remains Tiffany, then Luann. If goes badly, Bernice. He could go to talk to Mrs. Fogarty too.

    He made his choice. She wanted to continue the trip and keep having fun, he wanted to look responsible. She chose fun over returning with him. He chose returning over her. They had different goals, and none of them was ready to sacrifice his/her goal to stay with his/her loved one. So unless she did kick him away, he can’t complain or feel jealous because she is having fun. I believe that’s exactly what she was telling him would happen if he stayed with her. Now of course he might be having regrets and feel jealous, but he can only blame himself and he can still go back and join her. At the moment, I see him back to his previous whiny attitude: “I did the right thing, I was the responsible one, so I should be rewarded, she has not been responsible, so she should be punished, why is she having fun and I am miserable, that’s not fair…”

    Gunther probably hoped that Bets was experiencing heartache over him not being with her on the road trip. Honestly, good for her that she’s doing what she loves and didn’t get hung up on Gunther running home.

    Honestly, though I don’t think these two had a healthy dynamic. He was too wimpy to even tell his mom that it was wrong to be passive aggressive to Bets and Bets actually let him be spineless and went to extremes to debase herself just to stick it to his mom. Their differences making their relationship break in the road trip is pretty realistic.

    Gunther should go sit in his room and invite Les and Ox to commiserate with him. Then he could be just like Luann and they could easily spend two weeks in his room doing nothing. Maybe they could share his copy of the famous “novella”.

    I personally lost all interest in the road trip story when it turned into a money grubbing exercise, so these “filler” strips like today are just boring for me. If G&K think that creating an atmosphere of “haves” and have nots" among their fan base was a wise economic move, they are sadly mistaken and it shows how crass they are. As far as I’m concerned that novella business was a cheap slap in the face to a lot of people who have read their comic regularly but can’t throw money away on stupid things.

    Wonder if she messaged him directly with the pic v/s just getting notified that she posted it on social media. there’s very different context there, as the later would remove any “she’s sending this to taunt him”

    Given her “influencer” style, I’d say it’s likely to be the later. and while the G-Man may wish he’s there, there is a reason he’s not. Because he wanted to finish his degree. Maybe it’s because he’s afraid of the consequences of just walking out mid program, maybe it’s because unlike Bets, he can’t just go off doing whatever whenever.

    Either way, he needs to let go. I hope Greg isn’t going to make a protracted arch about Gunther immaturely being mad at Bets and bemoaning doing the responsible thing.Also… let’s get back to Tiffany, I’m actually rooting for her to beat out “Ms Cheer” Yeah, she’s had her share of shallow, but she’s finally growing out more into a person.Course there’d be some real irony if she started dating gunther, getting Luann jealous (even though she’s never really gotten that close to him) But I don’t think the Gman nor Tiff have grown up that much yet.

So is he angry with himself that he didn’t go with her, or angry with her for not regretting going on her own, and having fun? Hope we get some answers here, or in the novella, whenever they arrive. Did they part in peace or po’d?

    So. Gunther comes home because he has school and scholarship requirements (I’m sure attending school is one of those requirements). But Bets just blows off college and couldn’t understand that he isn’t in a position to do the same? Not very supportive of her. If they were truly a couple she would have come home with him.

    The message is clear, here… Bets has found her home world, and is settling in nicely.

    Gunther, I’m sorry you two had to split-up, but perhaps it’s for the best. She’s found her place in the universe, and you just need more time to find yours.

    Remember Rosa? She was a sweet girl, and it was nice while it lasted. But in the end, her place in the world was not for you.

    When you find your place, you will be truly happy. And who knows? Maybe by then, you’ll be with someone who fits right in there with you.

    Until then…, please don’t cut your fingers off. They’re the only ones you have.

    It would be one thing if it was a photo of her with another guy. They do not have to be joined at the hip. But if Gunther needs his mommie to only do stuff with him,…

    Scenario: Betts disappears without a trace. Van is found abandoned and burned. Gun is distraught with guilt. Gun and Les go super sleuth online, and locate Betts being held by traffickers. Uncle Al’s “business associates” intervene and bring a fragile Betts back. Irma, recognizing the depth of Gun’s feelings for Betts, goes into full substitute-mother mode and cares for Betts in the main house. Gun and Betts go to therapy together (no, not Bernice. A qualified trauma specialist). Irma sees therapist also, and realizes that her relationship with her son is not healthy. Everyone grows up. And Al is an FBI informant.

    They wanted different things. Gunther wants to grow up.

    I want to know what exactly happened between them. He’s been kind of vague. They never did seem quite “right” as a couple, though. She reminds me of my nephew’s wife, who puts EVERYTHING on IG, including the trauma. She’s totally a narcissist. Ugh.

    For some reason, I want Gunther to tell “THE STORY” to Luann. Two old friends getting together and talking again.

    Does anybody else miss the two of them together?

    The appropriate descriptor would seem to be that Gunther is carrying a torch for Bets and cannot get her out of his system. Nor does he want to, for better or for worse….
