Nina, had to be the elder daughter and acting mother to Averil, as Bonnie was continually in her Peter Pan phase. As she traveled the country seeking out antiques for her shop, she abandoned her kids, and Nina was left in the role of an adult/caregiver from age 10. She sacrificed her career choices, life goals, and emotional happiness for her family, until Dylan returned to remind her that she needs to care for herself first, before she can make anyone else happy. Her fly boy toy gave her the true perspective of her now small, tiny, narrow life, which needed an immediate overall. With her acceptance into Tuft Medical School on MA, and Dylan joining her, her future can only proceed upwards along with her million dollar trust fund.
Interesting storyline, but Bonnie' s childish, character was infuriating. OMG, where was CPS?? Loved the ending for Nina and Dylan, with Averil and Saint Kevin coming in a close second.
