Quote Ebybrowempoly: well its not alie anymore isn't phyllis.
That's why it's so shocking. The supposed "lie" turns out to be the truth. Literally--she's not just cheating emotionally now but physically, through her cations. We knew all along that she was lying to Nick, and trying to lie to herself. But for her to take action on things knowing that she has told Nick over and over how he's all she wants and there's nothing going on with Ronan.... you'd think that living up to her words would be easy, that even while she has known her words not to be all true that she'd not want to do anything to make her words completely a lie. What a crock her marriage vows were. What a weak creature. And I bet that even after the blueberry she won't use protection--if she ends up with yet another completely irresponsible and risky pregnancy and now at an even older age, the only thing that would make sense would be that she go through another loss and this one result in a hysterectomy. Maybe, ironically, this will be how she gets out of jail time for attempted murder.
