Miraculous son of Joyce and Norm, since when Joyce comforts Meg after her rape by Peter Wright, she confides in Meg that she and Norm cannot have children! He is not seen until after Joyce has left Norm for Mervin, and Norm is gravely ill in hospital. He makes plain his disapproval of Joyce's relationship with Mervin, comparing Mervin unfavourably with Norm (though to the unbiased eye they are much of a muchness). He is reconciled with his mother by the time he returns for Joyce's wedding to Mervin.
