Gedutu almost definitely have a teleconferencing function. And in a universe not too far away, Izzy can and does call Evey any time she wants. This time to check in for the holidays.

And of course, Izzy has to say hi to Thor.
It's not the universe we know. It is perhaps a happier one. But a different one nonetheless.
Happy Holidays, everyone. We'll be back to our regularly scheduled story next week.
