Uh-oh... entering the hot phase...

And now the elephant is truly visible in the room. Don't back down Lynn, you said it. It's completely true someone remind her she's recently investigated getting on the wagon. Doubt she has tossed out all the booze bet she relapses after this. Someone needs to explain to her that Dolly is much closer to "Mother Of The Century" than she is to being a mother or even a concerned human, Hell Noctis.Kali and TeeDee beat her out as maternal candidates.

Granted. But is it too late to love and be loved? Can no relationship be made between the two that matters?

They have to get the resentment out first. Calli (by my view) stopped, just stopped, when Fallon died, but Lynn isn't willing to let her catch up now that Calli's been jolted out of that emotional stasis. Dolly may have to "Mom" them both to get them to find some middle ground. Much harder to do while stuck in that machine.

Calli is overcompensating because of guilt. Just because Lynn was safe, and Dolly was taking care of her, it doesn't mean she has nothing else to think about, and can simply hide from her troubles. Lynn feels she was neglected, and now some of those feelings will get aired for both of them. They are both saying they care about each other, each in their own way: Calli because Lynn is safe again, and Lynn because she would have rather had more from Calli.

If only each understood the other . . .

Until the anger is gone and the healing has begun, they can't hear what the other is saying.

"When ya comin' home Mom?
I don't know when
But we'll have a good time then, Lynn
We're gonna have a good time then."

This sounds like a discussion I had with my dad under different circumstances. Cali doesn't understand that Lynn has grown through this experience. And that you can't protect them forever as much as you'd like to. And protecting them forever actually hurts them more than it helps them.

Boom. Festering firebombs on both sides, now cut open & exposed to air. A tiny spark is all it took. Wish the therapist were here to hear all of this, give her insight into the needs & emotions of her patients. Oh, well, guess Dolly will have to do. (Although, she could probably do with some therapy, herself.)

"I have a lot to do today, Lynn. Dolly will take good care of you. Won't you Dolly?"

"Yes Ma'am."

"Bye Mom. Will you read me a story, Dolly?"

"Of course, sweetheart."
