The Top Seven Characters That Lynn Doesn't Realize Aren't Underdogs: Number 3

A favourite theme of Lynn's happens to be when a character is rewarded disproportionately after a lifetime of self-induced hardship. When one accompanies this with taking active steps to ensure future success being an evil because of a lack of trust in fate and faith, one is left with the realization that Lynn has rejected Christianity and substituted a belief in the Fates of Greco-Roman myth.

The reason that I mention this is that we've come to the home stretch of this look at Lynn's cock-eyed view of reality by celebrating the life of someone who'd be seen as a winner by any objective standard: John. Lynn's need to get Rod to quit dentistry so that he can be 'kept' isn't just a jealous incompetent's need to get her thumb into the eyes of a man her better. It also points to her bizarre belief that since things seem to be handed to her, striving to succeed is just plain wrong.
