Here's Rush talking about it.
Her life was in shambles. She was about to lose her opportunity to take her dream job. Her husband was sabotaging her career, her adversary was wiping the floor with her. She turns to the man who has ever paid her any attention. Sure, he may have led the vast Right Wing Consipiracy to destroy her and her husband. Sure, he professes nothing but intense hatred and disgust for her. But she knows that he's hiding something. If she can just bring it to light, maybe she can give up her ambitious dreams and career goals. Maybe she won't have to try so hard. I mean, maybe, just maybe she can just be herself... she turns to the only man who has ever seen her for what she really is... evil.
