The first panel gives you hope that maybe, somehow, we've managed to dodge a few more weeks of mind-numbing flashbackless exposition, but nope! Tommie is back in her traditional pink turtleneck, and she's hungry for more stories, dammit. Unless the promise Tommie refers to is not "you tell me your story and I'll tell you mine" but "Monday is Ladies' Night at El Cervatillo Loco! From 4:00 until closing, half price margaritas and appetizers including our microwavable nachos famoso."
The only good thing about today is the nickname "Big Wheel," which I have to say I find completely charming.
