Why does Mary Lou run screaming from bed?
I get why she is freaked out when she first sees "Tommy's" inhuman appearance as he walks by her. But then she collects herself, takes off her clothes, and gets in bed with him and begins to touch him tenderly. This is intercut with images (one assumes) of Thomas making love with his wife from his home planet. Then Thomas touches Mary Lou, gets some liquid on her (does he ejaculate from his hand?!?), and she jumps out of bed and runs away screaming. What exactly happened there?share
