The L WordEdit

Season 1Edit

Kit was addicted to alcohol and continued to struggle with it, relapsing several times before she joined Alcoholics Anonymous. There, she met the genderqueer Ivan Aycock, whom she begins a non-sexual courtship with. He began to lead Kit on a better path, even aiding her in regaining her license, which had been revoked due to her DUI. Their romantic relationship ended when she accidentally walked in on him changing, revealing a binder, prosthetic penis, and Ivan's longer hair; this embarrassed him and made him feel uncomfortable with pursuing a romantic relationship with her.


Around nine years after Jenny's death, Kit got into a car accident. She was prescribed an opioid painkiller — a very powerful one that she quickly became addicted to, considering her already ongoing struggle with addiction. Around nine months later, she died of a heroin overdose.[1]
