I really wanted to establish all of the things in this comic without it taking a whole bunch more comics just to check everything.
The one thing I had wanted to note was that the moral wasn't "hey guess what having to keep personal secrets you wish weren't secrets is no big deal", but I'm giving you all the benefit of the doubt that you wouldn't jump to that conclusion just because I gave Grace a bit of a "making the most of it" win here.
Naturally, I'm insecure enough to still bring it up in the commentary, but that's just how I roll.
Also, it's safe to say this outcome is canon. I wouldn't bother establishing Grace going on to play video games with Conan otherwise.
This probably won't result in any weirdness once Tedd and Grace are going to the same college with a lot of the same people.
