The Bitzi-Bo Chronicles is a unofficially-recognized story arc contained in Elwood about Bitzi Baxter, her ex-husband Bo Baxter, and the relationships of them both while recovering from the divorce. It was the first story arc in the series, and the longest running one. The arc stemmed another arc, the Mr. Morris-Zorkbo stories. Despite having an official name, the arc is unofficially recognized, meaning the title of the arc is not written before every issue title, like the Frenskwire Love Saga.
There are 25 issues in the arc. The arc is often split up, because some consider the arc to end after the death of Bitzi, but other include Buster's misadventures while living with Bo. After the death of Bo, another assumed ending of the plotline could be thought.

Samuel Anderson has stated that the Bitzi-Bo arc will soon becoming to a close in one of the recent volumes, yet it is unknown if he considers the death of Bitzi the end, or the death of Bo the end.
Love and FateEdit
Bennett Joel, a guest writer for the series, wrote a 3-part issue called Love and Fate, meant to be the end of the arc. In it, Bitzi puts Bo, Harry, and Mr. Morris to the test to see who her true suitor is. In the end, all the characters die in a sinking boat. Feeling it was too drastic, Samuel Anderson did not accept the manuscript and the episode was scrapped.
