Chapter 69: At Loose Ends

It's a wonder Abbey and Daisy can sleep through Janet belting out song lyrics. Also, it seems to be snowing outside now?

The next chapter should be exciting to everybody.

Lucy will have to do a similar thing as well: re-examine her past actions and behaviour, come to grips with it, and try to improve for the future.
I just now noticed the seatbelts. SAFETY FIRST

Yeah, that will not go well.

The lingering question of course is: how did Abbey's mother die? It was previously established that Abraham didn't murder Charlotte. Yet that was two years ago, and the story may well have changed since then. (I'd think even if Charlotte had lingered for quite a while before dying from her injuries, Abraham would still be charged with murder no matter how much time had passed.)

You'll recognize her grave as the one that takes up two spaces.

1. The face that Abbey is smiling when he sees his moms grave? Is he happy to know where she finally is? Or is he just trying to throw up a mask to disguise any true feeling he may have?
Second you can really start to see the toll all of this is having on Daisy since she seems to have a really haunted look. That, or she is still looking disheveled from the sleeping on the car ride here.

As for Abbey's weird smile, he's probably still in denial, not quite believing his mother could actually be dead. Yet he'll soon need to come to grips with cold reality. Definitely Abbey is much more affected by this than Daisy is. (Daisy's curls are easily messed up.)
I am interested in hearing the rest of Charlotte's story!

She probably changed her name, faked her death and whatnot.
Or, she killed both Abraham and Abraham's whore. (One of which they are visiting.)
She says, "where are they". not, "where are my children"

The thought of the gravestone actually being Abraham's is intriguing, but it would take quite a bit of explanation and a few stretches of the imagination to pull that one off. Besides, that theory doesn't really seem to fit with what's happening here.
Charlotte was hit with a lamp, so most likely she wasn't mortally wounded or anything, just knocked out. If I might suggest one possible conjecture: Charlotte may have been so dependent on Abraham that she thought her life was basically over without him. After finding that her children were with foster parents, she might have fallen into deep depression, blaming herself so much for what happened that she decided to end her own life. If that's what happened to Charlotte, that would really be a guilt trip for Abbey, no matter how much Janet tells him not to blame himself for what happened. In which case, Abbey might take after not only his father (in anger), but also his mother (in self-guilt). He'll most likely need a few more sessions with his therapist to try and get over the guilt as well as deal with his anger issues.

If only the surgery made her brain-dead. The look an abbeys face when he finds out his mother is a vegetable would've been hilarious.

If anything I'd be shocked if people weren't harassing Taeshi for a name, age, birthplace, backstory, cup size, and sexual orientation everytime a nondescript meaningless and nonessential extra wanders into the frame
UNLESS OF COURSE SHE KILLS THEIR MOM!

UNLESS OF COURSE SHE KILLS THEIR MOM!
That's how those nurses get you. They tell you your children are safe in foster care, and offer you a nice meal to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Then she messes up the surgery, and you end up dying... I hate it when that happens.

I guess Charlotte's head injury was worse than I thought, if she needs surgery for it. And of course, surgery of any kind carries a risk of complications. Something could have gone wrong during the surgery or afterwards, which caused Charlotte to die. Or she could've even quietly passed away in her sleep the night before the surgery.
Though given that she did die, that'd mean Abraham would most likely be facing a charge of second-degree murder, since the head injury contributed to the death. He'd probably be spending quite a long time in jail upon conviction. Good thing Abbey didn't have to testify, I guess?

Or she might be donating organs, being sick in other parts of her body and as such wanting to do some good for the world.
Actually, I have no idea, but both of those seem more likely than euthanasia at the current time - it is, after all, not generally legal in the United States.

It's nice that Charlotte made sure her children were placed in a good foster home for the time being. Yet by withholding information of her condition from them, she ultimately caused them to wonder about her for years afterward. She thought she was doing the right thing, shielding her children and trying to keep them from worrying about her, but ultimately that wasn't the right decision. Abbey and Molly deserved to know what happened to their mother, instead of always wondering and making conjectures.
