Yes, the arrogance is one clue that these supposedly "nice" characters aren't so nice.
The footprint tats aren't only for dead babies. Ppl get them for living children as well.
His personality is so gross to me! Men like Scott feel totally entitled to female companionship. And when it doesn't come naturally or from the caliber of woman they feel they deserve, they force it - buying, flattering, pandering, lying, etc. But it's all forced and goal-driven. And when the woman doesn't respond to their efforts the way they want, they bubble over w/ anger. All kinds of crazy, misdirected, disproportionate anger. They're like a time bomb....and Scott has having mini explosions beginning a few hours before Lizzie was even released. Remember, on their first day together he accused her of looking down when he asked her something and threatened to break up w/ her?
Now he has found someone else he can Play Capt Save a Ho to....where's all the love he had for Lizzie for the past three yrs? Poof it's gone bc it was never there.
Call it what you want but sometimes "victims" do need to take some personal accountability. Why would a woman get pregnant by a career criminal on the day he's released from prison when she's already raising the deadbeat's first child? Why would she accept her husband disappearing for days with no explanation? Why would she chase down and angrily confront his side chick once she knows he is cheating? To scare her off so he will come back....and do it again.
At some point the "victims" of unfaithful partners need to open their eyes and voluntarily change their status to EX-partner. If Sarah is overwhelmed, why did she risk another pregnancy by a man who has never done anything for her or her child? If she has such high morals why is she screwing around w/ a convicted felon and having these fatherless kids?
I'd say no, she's not idealistic; she's arrogant! She's incredulous that Michael chose someone else over her! He what??? With whom?? Her? How? Does not compute!
Why should Megan apologize bc Michael pursued her relentlessly for yrs and proposed to her?? That's like expecting Sarah to apologize to Megan for not having better control of her husband. It's not a situation anyone needs to apologize for or be contrite about....just bc it's uncomfortable. Except Michael.
