Here's hoping that Tess will cut in with something like, "What are you doing, idiot?! Don't get off topic; we need this break to compete with DiDi!" via an earpiece or, for more outlandish comedic effect, by bursting through the hotel door a la Kramer.

Even with Lynn's opportunistic, rapacious tendencies, she has been shown to be intelligent enough to know when a situation isn't "real," so I'm still leaning on that she thinks that Maura is being guided by Tess, thus is using overwhelming sexuality to grasp control of the situation.
Perhaps Lynn doesn't realise this and really is following her base instincts, but Maura, even as gullible as she is, shouldn't be falling for it enough to be so flustered. I'm doubling back, however, in that I think Maura's destabilised state is because the plan given by Tess didn't sufficiently prepare for such a strong and early flirtation.

In either event, it would likely result in a situation in which DiDi won't be able to fulfil her fickle lusts.

Except this does seem real, Maura is clearly receptive.

Am I the only one who feels like Maura suddenly being bi-curious and attracted to Lynn is being shoehorned in for dramatic effect (for when Didi makes the scene)?

And, sorry, no - given her reaction to Lynn's flirting - I'm not buying this is her 'natural competitiveness' kicking in; as she sound genuinely attracted.

It's a little of column A, a smidge of column B. The seduction attempt is a little forced but Maura's reaction seems genuinely open to it. Hell it could just be a fangirl crush.

Also genuine or not it's a possible drama engine.

I'm reading this scene as Lynn deciding that subtlety was going nowhere, and dialing all the seduction techniques up to 11. As a result, they're working, sort of -- because Maura is actually quite solidly heterosexual, but nobody is 100%, and Lynn has found all of her potential weak points. Physical strength, celebrity, tight buns...

So yes, I think that Maura is genuinely attracted, but only because Lynn is working so damn hard at it. It's not that she's suddenly turned bi-curious, it's that somebody is using every possible asset to get her to make an exception against her established inclinations.

So I suspect that she'll succumb, albeit very tentatively -- at which point, the question becomes how DiDi will react to walking in on Lynn with another woman. She shouldn't complain, because everything that Lynn has said involved open relationships and so on -- but this is DiDi, with her sense of entitlement the size of fucking Jupiter, so I imagine that there'll be tears before morning.

Agreed, that Maura is marginally curious. And, that Lynn is certainly laying it on thick, from a butch persuasion which is what might turn Maura on. This isn't Lynn's first rodeo but Maura is barely a rodeo clown. I get the impression that Lynn wouldn't mind teaching Maura how to make love to a woman; but, I think Lynn wants some serious release with a partner who can deliver. Lynn doesn't realize Didi is still relatively neophyte, so she might get a little disappointed by her lack of skill. Or not - Didi Effect for the win.

The obvious continuation to this is that Maura will continue to get seduced by Lynn. Didi interrupts them... most likely by not just barging in but rather by knocking (hotel doors 'should' lock, as opposed to traditional Ma3 door locks). Maura and/or Didi get extra competitive and Lynn probably eggs them on... or at least doesn't stop them. Or, I could see Lynn asking Maura to vamoose since she'd now have Didi.

But the more interesting avenue for the creative team to take would be Lynn beginning to indulge in whatever sexual fetish she engages in that she told Mojo about, way back when. With either of them... or both even. I also expect there to still be some horror movie angle that is going to freak Didi out into not continuing sexual recourse with Lynn. Comedy, and all that. What if she likes to engage in sex-based Twister, and thus prefers nimble/athletic partners?

BTW, in this strip, i find Lynn's seduction techniques similar to Cammi's (from Sandra on the Rocks), and hey, she managed to lower Sandra's inhibitions without a drop of booze, something that was not even done by the Didi effect... So if Lynn has Cammi's game, Maura's chances of caving are really high...

Well, Cammi is less manipulative. She's looking for a good time with the pretty girl, sure, but she's not smack-talking her best friend or trying to trick her. She just makes it very clear she's available.

Really? You can't come up with a better response than that?
