Unfaithful Jane

Post by A Lotta Moms on Wed Jun 07, 2017 1:00 am

All right, while I know the latest buzz has been around the most recent batch of episodes, I've stumbled upon some very disturbing evidence that confirms something I think a lot of us have suspected for quite some time:  

Jane has been cheating on David for years.  



In The Mystery Envelope, an episode with the fitting theme of a dark and inescapable secret that nobody wants to address, we see Jane repeatedly (and outside the presence of David in every instance) talk about trying to meet up with a mystery man by the name of "Herb."  Arthur overhears this, and much like the mystery envelope being in his possession, is now the bearer of this dark secret.  When he later confronts her about it, she flat-out lies to him by telling him that "Herb" is Mr. Haney's first name.  Of course, we all know for a fact that his first name is Francis.*  It's also noteworthy that later on in the day and long after nightfall, we see David obliviously watching TV with the kids.  Jane, however, is nowhere to be found.  What's going on here?  It's only much later after Arthur awakens in the middle of the night that we see Jane downstairs, alone in the living room, fully dressed as if she just got home.  Even if I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt so I could continue believing the Read Home is as idyllic as it's presented, I just couldn't look past all of this.  

But then again, is it really any surprise?  Jane, the high-income provider with the assets to bag any man she wants, away at work most of the day in an environment where sleeping around is commonplace...David, the comparatively unsuccessful Mr. Mom who never amounted to much in life, and who probably wouldn't even have the balls to confront her if he did find out, since that would be the end of his meal ticket.

*Binky does address Mr. Haney as "Herb" at one point in Season 3, but this is most likely due to Arthur inadvertendly passing along the lie to him, since it's later confirmed that his name is absolutely, positively, and beyond a shadow of a doubt Francis.

Nice. If they ever start making episodes about adults, this could be a plot of one of them. Surprised

Since when is Mr. Haney's first name Francis? It's always been Herb(ert).

Well, Mr. Haney's page on Arthur Wiki says "Francis Haney, formerly Herb Haney", whatever this means. Guess the writers just changed their mind. Or maybe... Just maybe... The page was edited by Jane Read herself to cover her affair with the principal up? Shocked

I'm not actually sure which episode the name swap first appeared in, so I like to believe that it's just always been the case.  I adamantly refuse to accept retconning.  It's so much more fun to try to make semi-logical sense out of what's presented to us, even if it means bending the laws of time, space and eternal matrimony. cyclops

How could we been so blind? There's even an episode ("Arthur's Mystery Envelope") where principal Haney uses our poor protagonist to deliver a package to his mother. Arthur thinks it's about him failing some test and is so relieved to know the papers inside were just business documents he doesn't ask any further questions. Wink

I hope Thora doesn't walk in on David naked with a dunce hat, or she might react like this:

I was waiting for a chance to post this. It's a German meme from a "reality" show about a 140 pound-teenager and her constantly concerned aunt. The aunt's side-splitting, bone-dry comments are a legend in the German YTP community. Very Happy

You have just made my day, Lotta Moms. Now I see 'Arthur's Mystery Envelope' in an entirely different light...

But seriously, I have also been suspecting this for years (not a side effect of my potion either). Did David just concoct one too many leftovers goulash for her to handle? Or is something more nefarious crawling behind the curtain in the city of the strawberries...

It's funny, I didn't even see the analogy (or speculative idea, however seriously one takes it) until having rewatched the episode recently. That's one of the great things about Arthur, it's the gift that keeps on giving.

We should launch a full-scale investigation, rewatching every episode where Jane plays at least a minor role... We need to dig deeper! Shocked

And indeed we do! For starters, notice how we never actually see what Jane is writing on her desktop - yes, it could be 'work' but it very well could be something else, especially considering her tendency to empty the area around her while she's working...

The absence of David speaking roles (and David in general) from seasons 16-17 could also be explained through this as well. Did David finally discover his wife's dark secrets and divorce her, only to find himself unable to sustain a living, forcing him to return sporadically and eventually making a permanent comeback by Pets and Pests? I also have to wonder if everyone favorite bunneh Buster, a child of divorced parents himself, has some role to play in this complex puzzle as well...

IT'S PURE ALLEGORY!
