The Top Seven Character That Lynn Doesn't Realize Aren't Underdogs: Number 7

I think it's pretty much a safe thing to say that Lynn wants us to sympathize with people who really don't deserve it because of a limiting character defect that looks a damned sight like a mortal sin. A person can be mistreated horribly and still be an asshole because they have a built-in limitation. Such a person is, of course, Anthony Caine. Lynn thinks she's given the world a lovable loser who needed a good woman to make his life complete. Lynn is wrong because losers, they're never lovable. Also, he represents something horrible: sacrificing everything good about one's self to prove that Mom and Dad are RIGHT despite the fact that they'd rather swallow poison than date the people their own parents saw as perfect for them.
