Merton is back and gets the best line. Honestly, I need to just write the whole thing from his POV with his quietly snarky observations.
D wanted to know what it was about, so I told him, and he asked, well, what's the conflict going to be, because they can't just get married and then spend the rest of the story having crazy sex.
To which I say WHY NOT.
I mean, did someone go up to Pinter after seeing Betrayal and say, "Hey, cool play, bro, but you can't have the story unfold in reverse."
It's called INNOVATING.
