Added DiffLines:

* Protagonist: Diana's mental state is the driving force of the plot.


Added DiffLines:

* Deuteragonist: The plot revolves around Diana's worsening mental condition, but the show focuses just as much on Dan trying to keep the family together and his head above water.

* DrFeelgood

to:

* DrFeelgoodActingForTwo: Both Dr. Fine and Dr. Madden are played by the same actor. Partially because Dr. Fine only appears for about 2 scenes and possibly to show how they all seem the same to Diana.
* DrFeelgood: Dr. Fine from Diana's perspective.

* IJustWantToBeNormal

to:

* IJustWantToBeNormalIJustWantToBeNormal: The song "It's Gonna Be Good", which is possibly the happiest song in the soundtrack, is essentially Dan celebrating the fact that his family is beginning to seem like a normally family after sixteen years. The reprise of "It's Gonna Be Good", on the other hand, is [[spoiler:a rather creepy song about Dan desperately trying to get to Diana to stop trying to think about their dead son in fear of returning to the insane life they had before]].
