Lynn still throwing in those sleazy remarks, which are quite cunningly buried by general conversational flows; she is indeed sly since she - apparently - inferred that DiDi and Zii's relationship is nothing but physical, thus was able to deliver a near fatal blow to DiDi's desire for her so-called romance. Though, this could simply be lucky coincidence for her, however, even without knowing for sure, Lynn did use it as a tactic to further undermine the pathetic excuse of a relationship, and from the aghast expression in the final segment, it seems the tactic was successful.

...aaand I hate her.

Seriously, I thought she'd at least try to break them up to Zii's face.

Although this might get Zii and Didi thinking about open relationships, which frankly seem healthier for them, given that they've both lost partners over an assumption of monogamy that frankly had no reason to exist.

Lynn doesn't even have to try, does she? Just tell Didi that a professional career could prevent her from having l'orgasmes for months, and Didi is mortified!

Given this new revelation that Lynn just dropped into Didi's lap, and the fact that communication with partners seems to be an incredibly foreign concept to Didi (being limited to 'let's have sex!' for years); the probability that Didi is going to break up with Zii the moment she enters the apartment have increased exponentially.

Pointless arguing is one of the three pillars upon which the Internet is built. The other two are of course cat pictures and porn.

Brooke kind of is a total bitch in this universe, huh?

Do you think Blair the Doll is a little person wrestler in this universe too?

Lynn's an opportunist. She plays the hand she's dealt. She's not being terribly nice, but let's face it, she's not having to bother with anything bad like lying.

I would comment that DiDi does indeed go on and on about being a lesbian to everyone in earshot, but if Dumbing of Age has taught me anything, it's that this may indeed be a characteristic of newly out lesbians.

Nice facial expressions here, though Lynn's "sardonically arched eyebrows" look may be becoming a bit of a cliche.

Well, something else too:

She’s right.

And, in being right, she’s wrong.

Didi starts to crack after three days of no sex. Having her lover—or she, herself—gone for months on end would drive her bonkers.

However, Didi must have romantic, loving feelings for someone to reach orgasm. An open relationship would be of no benefit to her.

So while Lynn might’ve trying to trip Didi into a bed here, what she’s really doing is uncovering a deeper conundrum for Didi and Zii’s relationship.

Kiley worked out that DiDi needs an emotional connection to achieve orgasm. DiDi, being a histrionic idiot (sorry, a “sweetly open, passionate person”) who may never have made an authentic emotional connection with anyone in her life, interpreted that as needing a grand romance. Stage 2 of the process will be DiDi learning a little more subtlety.

If DiDi starts treating other people as proper human beings because that makes it easier for her to get her rocks off — well, the rest of humanity can’t complain.

What's even wrong about this? It wouldn't work at all if it weren't for the fact that DiDi's "relationship" with Zii is a total farce.

It's an opportunistic person seizing the opportunity to get between two exceedingly shallow people. I could probably muster more outrage over the murder of a cockroach than over this.

Why? Because she can read DiDi like an open book?

I personally didn't find Brooke that likable towards the end of EC. Shortly after she started dating Ace she became abrasive, petty, and hypocritical. It became even worse after they broke up. She was making out with another chick, but was ready to tear into him for kissing Nina. And then she was ready to practically sacrifice Ace and Kade over the opportunity to get some sugar from Layla/the Vampire Queen. To Quote Layla, "And you were going to let me?! What is wrong with you?!"

YES.
Of course, that doesn't mean her plans are destined to fail. She may very well get what she wants. In Giz-verse, sleazeballs are doomed to fail only when they are old, fat and ugly like Nathan or Yvan. If they are young, cool and attractive they can get away with pretty much anything. :p

Haha, in this universe Blair can only be a real doll. Perhaps we'll catch a glimpse of it in the background of some strip, one of these days.

Pretty sure we already have. In a flashback where Amber and Zii were fooling around when they were teenagers, Blair was a doll on the bed.
