The child's-eye view of the Settlepocalypse.

As you know, we've predicted that Meredith and Francoise will get into a tiff over who'll get to be the lead flower girl and that Robin will mislay the rings entrusted to his care. This, of course, will be yet another example of Lynn's most favorite plot device: presenting children as an annoyance. That being said, it's clear that the children have a different and individual take on what's going on around them than the adults. From what we've seen of her, Meredith probably views the Settlepocalypse as a great big party where she gets to wear a pretty dress. Since she's six, she's not exactly willing to share the spotlight with some timid little girl that she doesn't know that well. The fact that said baby is the daughter of the man Auntie Lizardbreath is marrying doesn't enter into her thinking; as far as she can see, it's her big day and that's that. As for Francoise, this is yet another scary part of dealing with the Silly Sandwich Lady and her family. She's afraid Liz is trig to steal her daddy, she knows the Pattersons don't feel comfortable around her and she's worried that the blond girl will be pushing her around and getting away with it. The wedding itself is going to reinforce those fears as will Liz's failure to respond in a productive manner to the child's emotional state. As for Robin, it's just some annoying thing where he's told to sit still and wear something itchy.
