She is dating Heath Burns. She fell in love with him at the moment she stepped out of the plane and saw him. It is, in her words, "love at second first fright"

Melissa is the daughter of the Gorgon Medusa, a figure from classic Greek mythology, and most likely influenced by her portrayal in the 1978 film Clash of the Titans . In the mythological tale, Medusa was transformed into a terrible monster by a jealous Athena(the inspiration for Melissa's pet, Athena). Her beautiful hair was turned into snakes, and her face became so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone.
In Clash of the Titans , the warrior Perseus needs to kill the Kraken, so he wants to use Medusa's gaze to turn it to stone. Unfortunately, that requires killing her. Perseus travels to the Isle of the Dead and kills her guardian, a two-headed dog (the possible inspiration of Deuce's pet rat). Perseus decapitates Medusa.
The 1981 film is famous because it features the stop-motion animation of master Ray Harryhausen.
