The way the Carver storyline wrapped up made me realize that the show is all about personal stories, and people wanting to make their exteriors match the stories they tell themselves.  You really notice it with Kimber's torture: all her plastic surgery tells the story of her and Troy, and it's ripped out to undo that, to taint the story so that she can't tell it again without great pain.

Brittany Snow: she burns her face trying to bleach it to make herself more white, because she finds out she has African lineage, despite what she's believed her whole life.  Joan Rivers wants to undo all her plastic surgery because she doesn't want to tell that story to her grandson.  The down syndrome patient has his nose hanged so that everyone else can see his story: that he's part of this family.

I realized this, then when I started season four, one of the first things that happens is we see Annie rehearsing a school play, Puss In Boots, a story about a cat who pretends that his master is a rich nobleman so that he can be accepted into high society.  it's a story about changing your personal story.  It's a very deliberate choice.
