I actually had to go back and look at past strips because I was confused. The only promise Tommie seems to have made to Carol is to tell her her story, but surely that's happened already? Off-panel? In the weeks they've been developing a friendship? And they just felt no need to rehash the story for us readers since we actually saw it happen?
My only hope is that this is a different promise that occurred off-panel and involves some kind of suicide pact. Makes you wonder what Tommie is referring to in the second panel. (Of course, if this did happen, it would definitely never be shown and would only be explained by turtleneck-wearing Margo and LuAnn in a future strip, whereas in reality I think we are about to get more exposition about something uninteresting we've already seen. And that's A3G, ladies and gentlemen.)
