Well after Linda is whipped for sleeping with too many men and the John is whipped for intervening john gets belted for comferting his mother later. It really sucks to be John. Linda feels some sort of maternal instict (if there is any) and awkwardly comforts John. She tells him of a place where everyone is on some never ending soma high.
