Everyone behaves badly sometimes, and the reasons are compellingly almost-fathomable. Is Ames checked out because he's dissociated out of his fucking mind and needs to transition again, or just because there is little sympathy or emotional support for the trauma he's experienced? Is Reese unable to engage earnestly with the people closest to her because of transphobia and trauma, or because she refuses to recognize that she is also capable of inflicting emotional harm on people she loves? Is Katrina an opportunist seeking relief from her divorce in the promise of queer parenting, or a woman whose options in intimacy have been curtailed for so long that she finds it hard to admit what she really wants?
