It’s easy to condemn Lizzie (Camilla Luddington’s character) for exploiting Charlie and getting free headshots out of a man who only wants to make her come, but honestly, we viewers are no better. Then again, we’re not quite as bad as his ex-wife; she construts anti-Runkle role playing scenarios in order to get off.
Maybe Charlie is somewhat flattered that Marcy still thinks of him in a sexual way, even if it’s only as the bald burden that makes her Stu-banging more exciting. We can’t say for sure though; it’s hard and scary to try to get inside Runkle’s mind. What if we understand him and then we become him? Will we get to sleep with Camilla Luddington? That might make it worth it.
