Better an end with horror than foobery without end.

The reason I would have wanted to see some actual drama is that I can see the future of these people: the past. When you look at the character dynamics of the Patterson Redux, a nasty picture emerges. We have one spouse in the health-care industry (a pharmacist, to be precise) who springs faits-accompli on her overly-cautious pseudo-intellectual husband. Switch genders and set it in 1981 and you get John and Elly. Even the birth order of their two children is gender reversed. I'm fairly confident ten years from now, she'll give birth to a boy who she'll name after the appropriate saint's day. Liz's pattern is starting to come into focus, too. It seems, much like Elly, she'll fall hard for a John Patterson-like Captain Rebound and recreate the Pattermanse somewhere else. April, of course, will become the wacky relative who pops in every so often so they can both have someone to pity. **cough**PHIL**cough** The reson I can say this with any confidence is my sure knowledge Lynn intends to end things by bringing both children to much the same point John and Elly were at the start of the story.
