Of completed circles and the Settlepocalypse.

As I've said before, Liz has no idea what she's getting herself into walking blindly into a marriage that much like John. She wasn't really paying too close attention to what her dad was doing owing to being tormented by Michael and worrying if she would ever be loved to notice what a passive-aggressive jerk John is. It's clear, for instance, that she'll have to contend with Anthony trying to talk his way out of ogling younger women. Sooner or later, they'll be at a park or the mall, she'll be in her Mom jeans with her hair in that damned bun looking like she's thirty going on sixty and his eye will wander and he'll have to come up with an explanation. Knowing her, she'll accept the obvious lie so she can harrumph about how stupid men are so as to avoid how much like her mother she is. She'll also need, as I said, to contend with his attempts to not only actively undermine her but criticize her by means of a proxy. This, of course, will eventually get her to sit around with head in hands wondering if this is what she signed up for and this all she can contribute to the world. In short, she'll have turned into her mother. This is what Foob is all about, you see; the transformation of what was once a young woman with limitless potential to a frustrated old hen living in a suburb flapping her arms, honking her nose and playing with the hair on her chin. What a great moral.
