The honesty gap: Liz and the Settlepocalypse.

The most annoying part of the Settlepocalypse is that Liz is incapable of describing what she's looking for in life with any honesty. We can see that she's not looking for love and, while it's depressing to see her settle, it's her choice to place security and stability over passion and, as such, we have to respect it. If she'd admit that she's not seeking a love interest, we wouldn't care that she found the man she felt most comfortable with. What makes it even more irritating is that, despite what she tells herself, Elly and John want this to happen too. They want her to marry for comfort, not romance. Sure, she was in love with the sensation of being in love with three other guys but it's as against her real nature as her time in Mtigwaki was. She's a homebody who loves the familiar in a world that doesn't seem to value that any more. If she told the world at large to just plain deal because she was going to live the way she was going to live, this would simply be another unspectacular wedding that led into a tidy, uneventful life instead of the cosmic horror that awaits us.
