I still think she should have kept the Power of the Mighty Breeze. That way, she can pelt Mike with small pebbles whenever she feels like it. Still, though, I think this actually reflects how Lucy and Mike became friends. Lucy was all alone and everyone shunned her. Then, Mike came along and showed her compassion and she completely changed. (Then, of course, Sandy came along and Mike ignored Lucy and she got all depressed and learned to never put her trust into another being.) Also, I don’t think this is the end of the play. It has way too happy of an ending.
Either way though, I’m pretty sure Lucy’s dead inside. I mean, look into those eyes. There’s nothing there, and while they are a great shade of blue, they are completely lifeless. In the last image, she also has a really tired, depressed looking expression on her face.
And I’m still curious as to what her family was talking about back in Ten Seconds to Midnight. It seemed so important to the story and it just hasn’t come into play yet.

Lucy looks scared in the last pose. She’s a great actor, to act past what she’s gone through lately, but you can tell that she’s still nervous/frightened to be around him. The play is probably helping her to focus off that, but she’ll probably be a nervous wreck and locked in the stage room after the scene ends. It wouldn’t surprise me if that happened.

I hope Mike notices that she’s not all there yet.

Can only imagine that both of them are feeling extremely uncomfortable right now. Especially Lucy, with that look in her eyes on the last clone. Mike may be more mesmerized more than anything.
I just have that ‘wait for it’ feeling of dread.
