ON THE FINAL PAGE we witness Cypher's embarrassment at letting the flower die. His chagrin is heightened as he admits that the neighbor woman was right about the TV. But the woman, in a spirit of forgiveness, joins Cypher in watching TV.
The closing scene shows Cypher in the presence of the dead flower, symbolizing the neglected relationship, seeming to prefer the illusion of a flower he watches onTV.
Is he the kind of man who prefers the illusion of a perfect woman to a relationship with a real human being?
