When the man, as in "human," finally wiggles free of the lofty pillory Starshine has constructed to immortalize him, the odds are he will slip away and search for another town to escape the numbing silence from his former "friends," his ex will be alone, The Club will recover from its anger to face the fear that it could happen to them, and we can all wonder if monogamy is the American Dream.
