This episode showed the completely screwed up dynamics in Debra’s family of origin.
But Debra did not and still does not forgive Bobby like her mother. She was willing to divorce several husbands, so it’s not as if she 100% internalized “til death do us part”.
So what about John is different, that she’s not willing to cut ties?
After his tearful “confession”, instead of agreeing to take him back, she could have offered to pay for any and all rehab he needed first. THAT would make some sense.
But this? Still not getting it.
