Well that's something that I neglected to mention in my original post. An idea that I recently formed is that Dorthy could be to Angela as Maria is to Mary. A sexier, clingy, Angela.
Well, I can see that I guess. Good point. They do seem to be polar opposites in that spectrum...Another thing to add is that Dorothy is much older than Angela, is a mother, and her motivation for taking the abuse is to protect her husband and child...Whereas Angela wasn't abused for that purpose, on the contrary, she was abused by a parent who was supposed to protect her, and her mother condoned it.
