The ex factor

Of course, it's not as if John would stand out in the crowd being totally stupid about how things should proceed in the world. For some reason, the people in the strip did something incredibly ill-mannered and constantly waved Liz under Therese's nose in an effort to torpedo her inconvenient marriage. Every year or so with machine-like precision, a social event was staged so that rock-stupid Liz would show up and remind The Evil Career Woman that everyone in town expected that Liz and Anthony were supposed to be married to one another and by gum, she was wrong, daddy, wrong to assume that her vows were in any way sacred. Since the Breath is as dense as titanium, she still probably blames all the discomfort on the mean person who says mean things about her for no reason that doesn't involve her being cold and mean and cruel.

This, I should think, is why she never quite understood why Warren was always there to fly her whenever Paul was in the area. Since she never managed to pick up on social norms living her life slumped over and whining about how alone and unloved she was, she, as I've said before, didn't at all understand that her pilot friend was in it to win it at a rival's expense. The only defense that she has is that she's raised to believe that this sort of thing is normal. As we see right now, John seems hell-bent on creating friction by pointing an ex at an established relationship, firing and watching the chaos. Since Elly never successfully explained what a dick move that was (and only objected to it because it inconvenienced her), Liz thinks that Therese had no cause to object to harmless behavior.
