  1. Fascinating analysis. It seems to me another interpretation of Penny shooting her reflection is that she is destroying not her childhood, but her self-image (the “ugly” reflection she and Judy were looking at earlier). But, of course, your interpretation is valid, too.

    I have seen a lot (and I mean, a LOT) of similar symbolism in the episode, “My Friend, Mr. Nobody.” I would love to write up a full analysis of that episode. Could I send it to you? And if so, where would I send it? If you like it, you could post it on the site (and if not, at least you might enjoy my insights).

    Thanks for your article!
