Molly Kroll, The L Word
Molly Kroll (Clementine Ford) was introduced in the fifth season as a producer who met main character Shane on the movie set of Lez Girls. Shane kept flirting with Molly even though Molly stated repeatedly that she was straight. In a conversation with her mother, Molly mentioned having just broken up with her boyfriend, Richard.
Her mother was not pleased with the direction Molly’s life was going, also voicing her displeasure with Molly’s friendship with Shane. To annoy her mother, Molly then stated that she was going to go “gay for Shane” and pursued her. Molly freaked out after she and Shane first kissed and later showed up with her ex-boyfriend, Richard. However, she soon changed her mind, sending Richard back to Vermont, and she and Shane hooked-up and started dating.
Molly appeared to genuinely care for Shane, but her mother still didn’t approve of the relationship and told Shane that if she really cared about her daughter, she would break up with her. Not trusting herself because of her past dating history, Shane intentionally flirted with another woman in front of Molly, and the two end up breaking things off, however, Molly told Shane to come find her when she sorted herself out.
