Discussing Steph's character in Playground; Liz is essentially a product of her urban upbringing: having grown up in the city, she is chic, educated, well-mannered and rational. She genuinely loves Stew and wants the best for him. She is everything that Clint is not and ultimately represents a world far removed from Clint and Stew’s rural lifestyle. She pulls Stew towards her world and is the roadblock for Clint as he resists her motives and pushes back.
