We’re also able to remove items from a list.

Similar to adding items, we can modify lists by taking off the last item, or we can use indexing to select a specific item and remove it from the list.

myList = ['apple', 'banana', 'pear'] // removes 'pear' from myList and returns 'pear' myList.pop() // now, myList == ['apple', 'banana']

This line of code will take away the last item from our list, keeping our sequence intact. But we can also remove items from the middle of our list:

myList = ['apple', 'banana', 'pear'] myList.splice(1, 1) // removes 'banana' from myList and returns 'banana' // now, myList == ['apple', 'pear']


After looking at your comic strip, you decide that you want the ending to be a cliffhanger. Take off the last frame from the comic.
