Fake antithesis

Building on yesterday’s post, what about the following figure?

The supporting actor let me down

There’s an antithesis on the figurative plane (’supportive’, ‘let down’), but not on the thematic plane (disappointing actor).

Thus, there’s also an antithesis of sorts between the two planes, and a certain symmetry to the figure.
