Remember The New Magic Girlfriend......

The irksome thing about the way the Gordon/Allyson not at all a thing actually plays out is that we're going to deal with how Lynn wished her own life had turned out after it became obvious that the boy she'd fixated on had no real interest in her and a lot of interest in a girl his own age. She wishes that a kind fate had awarded her a perfect forever love to make up for her disappointments. Thus do we have Tracey Moore being created out of whole cloth in order to show us how Lynn thinks life should work. First, we have childhood friends and then they turn into partners without all of that romance stuff to make things syrupy and weird....and then she turns into a paragon of dowdiness and repression who never ever does anything to make Gordon feel like a loser or less of a man.

The reason that I mention this is that Lynn would eventually award another doltish stalker who never met a social norm he liked or understood the greatest prize of all: Lizardbreath. Today, it's Gordon not realizing that minor gratitude doesn't mean that he's dating Allyson now. Tomorrow, it's Assthony successfully getting Liz to wait.
