I live in a home like his, but not as nice. It is noisy, I creaked coming down stairs today ; ) A lot about his invasion was odd, my husband has been a city police officer for 30 years and he thought it was "off" too. The crook went upstairs but then seemed to be coming in the kitchen, he came in through an open door or window it seems, never said a word, had knife but seemed stunned, never tried to run or attack Randall. It did seem dream-like. The missing cufflinks and earrings maybe were to emphasize he was real, but the followup was weak. Randall gave him money/wallet. I don't think he took anything else and most crooks don't start upstairs, leave the kitchen untouched and living room untouched. Time will tell, but it was odd and the purse snatcher later was silly. If Randall made a mistake and it wasn't a robbery, I feel that would have driven home how tight he was and the "hero" part he rejected was probably not needed.
I loved seeing the young Pearson's I've seen in stock photos but never used yet. There was a birthday one too that might come up one day. I agree with most of you that Jack was wrong saying Randall had to be strong but as a tired parent of 3 kids, I might have said something I regret too.
It's going to be hard watching Kate with this loser but as an adult, Rebecca and Kate didn't seem that upset looking at his picture, it was more a sad thing. I remember thinking he committed suicide or something bad happened. If he attacked her I think her reaction would be worse.
