The whole Rob and Patrice relationship screamed abuse to me. Pistol said that Rob was very involved for about a year, then suddenly got really nasty. The kid would have been about 9 or 10 then.
The friend said that Rob set Patrice up with the business. He's 20 years her senior.
I think he found a younger woman who was struggling a bit financially and thought that he could control her. He set up her business, and he felt she owed him.
After a year, he realizes that her kid will always come first (because he should always come first) and gets more and more hateful. Takes it out on the kid. Tries to keep her from nurturing any other relationship that might take attention away from him, whether it's with friends or family.
Vindictively keeps her separated from her true family even in death. Fantasizes about her final days.
Even if he wasn't involved in her death, I have no doubt that he made her life hell. Very, very much a Jules vibe going on there.
As for the guys who left Alonzo, I am not a fan. Given that at least one of them talk about a conflict between Zo and the dudes who were at the party, I just flat don't believe Justin. And leaving a guy an hour from home in a situation that has already been confrontational isn't just a miscommunication to me. That is just selfish. They should feel guilty. And Zo's family and other friends have every right to be angry at them.
The feel of the show is lacking. It's a very well-made true crime, but the only thing that made it anything else was the UFO story. Those are my least favorite segments, so that's not enough. Will watch, but it's not UM.
