The dreary couple and the kool-aid drinkers......

There are two things that are horrifyingly amazing about the Settlepocalypse: the general feeling of melancholy and the desire of the people who tell Lynn she has a camera in their house to see it as being romantic and joyous. The former is fairly easy to explain: this exercise in vulgarity is the culmination of a pattern of obsessive and destructive behavior. Liz and Anthony, while not especially liking one another, plowed through lives in an effort to be together. Since they wasted all the joy they'll ever experience on deceit, manipulation and betrayal, it seems obvious that the hoped-for union looks like the culmination of a business deal. The gushing and cooing of Kool-Aid Nation is even easier to explain: they see two established characters getting married and conclude it must be romantic despite not looking like it is. They were gratified to receive permission to ignore their eyes from the creator. This allows them to say that just because we don't see things, that doesn't mean they're not there. This is, of course, their way of saying that they don't care that Lynn is a failure. They refuse to see that we have to see all the things that happen so we know they did.
