Further reflections on the coming after....

One of the most annoying parts of the whole "Elizabeth's Assault" plot line is not that it led to Anthony's pleading with Liz to wait until he'd totally destroyed his marriage, his idiotic remark about finally having something to fight for or even Lynn's cavalier and ignorant treatment of the subject of harassment. To me, the nadir occurred before the Ear Tweak Heard Round The World; that's because Liz begged John to not call 911 on Howard despite his following her home. In our haste to lambaste her for guessing that she had to report the whole thing to the police as if it were an unpleasant and unnecessary chore, we must not lose sight of the fact that had she an atom of firmness, the whole ungodly mess could have been avoided. Why it is that Lynn thought that John's solution was futile seems to stem from her fear and hatred of police constables; this, I should think, is possibly owing to them taking the wrong side (by which I mean "not hers") in a domestic dispute.
