Musings on a Lovepocalypse.

Now that it finally seems that Elizabeth and Anthony are going to get married, let's step back and consider why this was necessary in the first place. One thing I've noticed is that Lynn can't seem to portray a realisitic single woman at all well. This is mainly because her experience with single life was not exactly pleasant. Being a single mother after her story-book marriage collapsed because her high-school sweetheart cheated on her didn't leave her with the impression that life without a man in it was at all desirable. She's unconsciously trying to 'rescue' her real daughter from something she can't help but feel is a bad scene AND trying to rewrite history so that she wasn't a 'failure'. (I wonder how Rod feels about being Plan B. I also wonder how Kate feels about this whole revisionist history thing, because if Lynn hadn't married Rod, she wouldn't exist.) There's a second reason for this as well. As aladdinsane pointed out, Lynn had them meet real cute in high school and felt it was one of the best story lines she'd ever come up with. Letting the relationship just peter out and die, like it probably would have in the real world, would mean that her best material was all for nothing because it didn't lead anywhere. She just can't let that happen and will do anything, assassinate any character and commit any logical absurdity in the name of her beloved storyline.
