> We see Hank as YJ taking out the fur thieves, who got a little more bloddthirsty, and after that he shows up at Avengers HQ and EVERYONE knows who he really is!!!!!! Sitwell and Jarvis even know! And then everyone takes the shrink's advice(how beautifully convenient she was there) to PLAY ALONG with the delusion of YJ that Hank is dead! Sorry, this is just too bloody much. Between that and the Black Panther subplot which is dragging on too long, this mini has just gone south. Ick.
As several people have pointed out, Roy's original story made no sense. First, T'Challa's senses should have been able to detect that Hank was Yellowjacket. Second, if YJ admitted to killing Hank in front of witnesses, which he did, then why couldn't the Avengers arrest him?

...but I sort of recall it making sense in the end that Panther, Hawk, and Wasp understood it was Hank all along. Its always been a bit weird that Jan married Hank while he wasn't in his right mind...but its never been related that she actually believed she was marrying a stranger who killed Hank Pym.

My quess is that the off panel stuff is there to soften the weirdness of why they would play along and not a retconn that they were never aware in the first place.

...ohhh btw...Circus of Crime next issue.
