Abstract

the contemporary pacific · 21:1 (2009) dressed as an eagle, is impressed by Lily's shark costume and even more impressed by her video-game skills. They soon end up in Jarrod's bedroom where he shows off his most promising art projects, which seem hopelessly unpromising. After awkwardly consummating their new relationship, the viewers quickly discover Jarrod has a hidden dark side. He is obsessed with returning to his childhood home to "kick the ass" of his high school nemesis Eric, a Samoan bully, who, according to Jarrod, is responsible for ruining his life. "I used to be a bit of a nerd," Jarrod confesses. Lily is seduced by Jarrod's need to win, and in classic codependent form she quickly enlists her brother to give them a ride out to Jarrod's small, country town. Here, Lily discovers the true nature of Jarrod's problem lies more in his relationship with his dysfunctional family than with any Samoan tough guy. Jarrod is consumed with gaining love from his oblivious father, who lives in a constant state of mourning over the mysterious death of Jarrod's heroic brother. Lily learns that Jarrod wants to reclaim his brother's lost throne, and restore his dad's happiness
