Eliza really likes Desvox and vice versa. It's extremely obvious. I just worry about the effects on Alex, for a few reasons.
Eliza needs a lot of coercion to "go slow," a trait we sadly share. They're impulsive. Desvox is on the drink, making things emotionally problematic. Eliza is shit when it comes to handling feelings.
Hopefully, they can quell some of this...
I *think* if Eliza holds it together, it will teach them a thing or two about discipline. Desvox reminds me a lot of Eliza, but much gentler emotionally and kinder.
Desvox though, I can't tell you what will happen. They're not gonna give up the bottle anytime soon. This is really going to hurt Eliza, emotionally...
My advice to Eliza was not to expect Desvox to quit drinking, and realise the ramifications. These could be really bad and harmful to Eliza. Eliza just says Alex was an alcoholic when she met them. That's not justification, in my opinion.
