In Sydney’s eyes, Olivia wants to be Paula, explaining how the elder Mossbacher sibling viewed her friend as the “independent well-rounded person,” she should be. But as Paula asserted that same independence throughout the show, Olivia began to feel like “she was losing control over Paula.”
“There definitely is a love that Olivia has for Paula, I think that it just came across in a possessive, controlling kind of way of,” she explains. “Olivia [thinks she] should be getting anything and everything Paula gets, i.e. guys, crushes, anything like that.”
