April and her World of Illusions...

One of the hallmarks of emotional abuse is a need by the sufferer to cover up her own feelings of inadequacy by projecting her self-loathing on a fall-guy. Sound familiar? *cough*BECKY*cough* Since April doesn't have any healthier a self-concept than the other members of her family, she needs to have someone to despise to feel good about herself. It also plays into her tormentor patriarch's hands, too, so this behavior is encouraged. I'm pretty sure that when Becky hit the big time, Duncan and Gerald's parents weren't too thrilled the jackhole dentist's goofy kid (who, in their opinions, desperately needs to act her age) tore up their tickets to the Gravy Train, the one locomotive he hates. John and Elly, on the other hand, were right on the spot with the 'Bird in the Gilded Cage' cacaraca. Typical from them, when you realize the reason they're praising Michael to the skies is his sickening willingness to make his life a degrading imitation of his past. John, of course, sees himself as a saviour figure, 'rescuing' women from independence and self-worth without relation to his imperial self. Elly, on the other hand, wants to sabotage her children's happiness because of suppressed rage. Not only does she not want them to succeed because her OWN dreams of fame were destroyed by the Train Fascist, she sees them as the cause thereof. She doesn't realize that's just want that selfish wad of shit she married wants, though. That like of thinking, if carried out to anything like a logical conclusion, might lead to realize she could live a happier life if he was out of the picture.
