Therese, Francoise and their ultimate destiny.....

Recently, aprilp_katje asked Lynn point-blank what she herself thought of Thérèse as a person and what she thought would happen to her down the line. The answer she got is fairly enlightening as it reveals a lot about how Lynn really does see the world. First off, Lynn doesn't think that Thérèse is really all that bad a person; the official story is that she married Anthony for love but before she herself figured out what she wanted in life. Once she figured out who she was and what she needed, she got out of Dodge the best way she knew how. As for her resentment of Liz, that was chalked up to her thinking that the Breath was a lot less frakked up than she is as well as knowing that the man she loved lusts after a vapid twinkie who can't tell her arse from a hole in the ground. The reason Lynn gave for not showing the good side of Liz's rival is equally telling; she claimed that it would get in the way of showing such super-important things as Elly yelling at the dogs, April whining about her acne, Mike being a douche, Liz being so passive that she risked being mistaken for a potted plant and John playing with trains. Second, she has no real opinion on childlessness, cohabitation or anything else substantive; this is sort of why she doesn't see that people have a problem with the way the Pattersons behaved. She wanted Liz and Anthony to have a happy ending and if someone had to be mildly inconvenienced and be vilified by small-minded twits with rapidly widening asses who don't want to feel guilty about being the other woman, that's sort of a downer but that's how things had to happen. As for what's supposed to happen to her, Lynn surmises that Thérèse is going to do well at her job and find the happiness that Anthony hoped she would in his Liography (said happiness taking the form of a person more suited to her than the homebody she fell for in University); as for Françoise, Lynn guesses that at some nebulous point in the future, mother and daughter would have some sort of respectful and tidy relationship. I would personally hope that this is in the short-term because I fear for her if left to the tender mercies of the Patterspawn. Having to take second stage to James Allen and being assailed for being a princess is bad enough without that.
