Character Analysis

Marylou is Dean’s first and rather astute wife. She understands Dean and their relationship incredibly well. She remarks on his madness, saying that she loves him but can’t have him because he is simply too mad. A sharp tack, that Marylou. She also matches Dean in sexual adventurousness, totally up for sleeping with Sal while Dean watches.
