We’re obviously being set up for some stroke-of-midnight showdown or non-showdown here.
Wouldn't we love to see that long-awaited showdown? A fierce, champagne-soaked catfight between the two (living and breathing) rivals for Les' affection? Ain't. Gonna. Happen.

At the stroke of midnight Les will no doubt be talking to Lisa again, while the other (remaining) guests will be rolling their eyes. “Uh, what’s Les doing over there?” “Oh, just talking to his dead wife again, he does that all the time.”
Yup, no doubt.

You can pretty much see where this is going: at the stroke of midnight, as Kayla and Susan look on, Les kisses Zombie Lisa.
You peeked, Charles! Nah, we all saw this coming, didn't we? But c'mon, let's give poor Les a break. After all, it's only been how long since…

…Lester’s weird obsessiveness would be creepy even if it was only three or four years since Lisa died, but 13? That is pretty messed-up…
Ten years for the jump plus three real-time years since equals 13 years of moping. And while grieving is perfectly normal, particularly for one who died such a lingering death at a young age…comes a time when you accept the way things are. Even in the comics.
Happy New Year, folks!
