The character of Mary has always had sinister undertones, and the snapshots of her past are constant reminders that all may not be as it seems. Her fixating on men – Norris, Roy, and now Dev – is hilarious, but also a bit creepy, and she ups the ante when competing with Julie for Dev’s attention (below). She cannot contain her jealousy when Norris and Rita gossip about a possible romance between Julie and Dev.
