Lydia Plath had an insightful chat with mom Kim Plath on the latest episode of Welcome to Plathville. It seems that she plans to move out at some point after it was announced that Kim and Barry are officially divorcing.
But she made her tell her mom that she wants to make sure “the little girls” are taken care of when she moves out because she thinks they still need a mom in their life, and Kim has assured her that she will always be there for her and the girls, but Lydia isn’t so sure. She said when she thinks of love, she thinks of spending time with people, and that hasn’t happened between her and Kim lately.
Ouch, need some ice to burn, Kim?
She also said that if she moves out, one option would be for her to move in with Father Barry Plath. Some people in the fandom will get some pretty…odd vibes from this, but it’s not uncommon for a daughter whose beliefs align so closely with her father to choose to live with her father rather than Mama Kim, who she doesn’t seems to be more trusting.
Will Lydia Plath move in with Dad Barry Plath?
In many cases, in religious fundamentalist families, when a child agrees more closely with one parent’s beliefs than the other, they often choose parents whose beliefs are very similar to their own. Lydia is still in the prayer closet, so of course she would choose Barry…or at least she thinks she would.
Thing is, Lydia doesn’t know Barry the single man, only Barry the loving father. The moment Barry strays from some fundamentalist beliefs he’s instilled in these kids, or, God forbid, starts dating again? You will see a change in Lydia and she will be by Mom’s side again.
Right now, she has cognitive dissonance because of what her parents taught her, a whole belief system around something that was fundamentally wrong, at least in the context of her marriage. She says she might end up moving in with Barry when he gets his own place, but something says she’d rather move to Tallahassee with her friends instead… Barry the Single Man might need a little space to stretch his legs . Stay tuned!!!
