  1. Did anyone else recognize the scrunchie looped over the bathtub faucet when Kate was singing "Beautiful Dreamer" in the shower and Martin was making his way into the bathroom before closing the doors? I thought the scrunchie was still on Jeannette at that point. Or maybe it was a different scrunchie, to show how comfortable and settled in Kate was in the house? I tend to think that Jeannette recognized the music on the answering machine and bolted to get the snow globe from Mallory purely to save herself - if anyone else heard/recognized that music and noticed the snow globe out in the
  2. Wild thought here, but could it all come down to Mallory being the villain, and wanting to get back at Kate for ruining her friendship with Jeannette by proxy? Maybe Mallory was the one who saw Kate in the house when she snuck in to get the snow globe, put two and together and got five, and then called Jamie and played the snow globe and did some heavy breathing to 1) make him think Kate was having sex with 2) Martin, because the snow globe was the clue to try to guide him to Martin's house? And Jeannette knows it and is trying to protect Mallory by taking the snow globe and getting rid of i
  3. I did, too - at first. But then I thought about the way Martin said it - "Don't worry, THIS PART will be over soon." As though this was just one step in a longer process. So it no longer seems like an assault to me. Plus, Martin would probably not want to think of it as being "over soon," given the extent he's gone to to finally have Kate in the palm of his hand. He'd want to think of it in a romantic context and make it last as long as possible.
  4. Remember the grilled cheese she ate that was obviously drugged? She was slumped against the wall, and Martin came in and told her, "Don't worry, this part will be over soon." I've always wondered what he meant by that. Did Martin assault her? Did Annabelle assault her? God forbid, was there some sort of film made of her? Something completely different?
  5. Count me in with those who thought the roller rink scene would end differently than it did. Taken by itself, it wouldn't have bothered me, but within the context of the entire story, it would have felt like jumping the shark. I'm still not liking Mallory, but I think it's because I'm not fond of the actress portraying her. She just doesn't seem to fit the role, in my own opinion. Did anyone else have the thought that Annabelle might be the girl from Widow Falls? Kate was so vehemently NOT in favor of her that I wondered if she might have experienced a bit of Stockholm Syndrome wit
  6. Teresa used to be adorable, both in looks and in personality (well, except for the table flip). Now she looks, to me, like someone with whom life and unpleasant reality caught up. I do sympathize with her regarding the loss of her parents; it doesn't matter who you are or what you've done, losing a parent is heartbreaking and a deep loss. I have to say, I loved Marge's hair. I think it's a good look for her.
  7. I noticed that Jeannette was wearing Kate's scrunchie when she went to Martin's house and hid in the closet. And while I liked the scene with Angela and Cindy, something about it made me distrustful of Cindy. I was humorously relieved when I saw Angela drinking out of a bottle because I had the thought that Cindy would spike her drink and try to kill her. Beyond that, I don't feel like we're any closer to knowing for certain what happened. How many episodes left? Four? They have a LOT to cram into four episodes!
  8. I believe Jeannette definitely kept the scrunchy as part of her idolization of Kate - "I have something that belongs to my idol!" And I believe Jeannette definitely had a crush on Martin in 1994, which would lead to her going in and out of his house whenever she feels like it to feel "close" to him. Which makes me wonder: 1) Does she see Kate in Martin's house and get jealous that Kate gets all the "great" guys, and just run off because she feels hurt? 2) Does she feel betrayed by Kate somehow before the kidnapping and somehow orchestrate things so she essentially delivers
  9. Could Ashley also have been abducted at some time? Or have had a boyfriend of her mother's take an inappropriate interest in her at some point? Maybe she can relate better to Kate now?
  10. I'd thought at first that Annabelle might have been a split personality of either Kate's or Martin's - but the way Kate looked directly at her mother when beginning the "ghost story" and saying that it was about a little girl named Annabelle who was the victim of everything her parents did to her, I'm wondering if Annabelle actually has something to do with Kate's mom. I also caught Kate's explanation at the end that she was the only person who knew what happened to her - "the other person didn't make it out alive." Not "HE/MARTIN didn't make it out alive," or "he/Martin was killed," but
  11. Maybe? Probably. But in her own mind, she is/was all those things, so she likely wouldn't be thinking about providing proof to back it up. I remember the scene where she and Jeanette ran into Kate and her mom after aerobics, and she - Cindy - acted toward the mom just the way Jeanette acted toward Kate at the mall: goofy, hero-worship, giddy just to be talking to her. This also makes me think she's re-imagined her entire high school social life. Oooh - what if she saw that Jeanette had the chance to be popular, the way she never did, and had something to do with Kate disappearing
  12. I tend to think that Cindy is remembering her high school days and her interactions with Kate's mother as she WISHES they were - so popular, all the boys wanting her, Kate's mother looking up to her - especially given the context in which she shared these memories: while assuring her "nerd" daughter that she surely had lots of people who wanted to be her friend and that she would one day be just like her mother (Cindy). Her gazing off into the distance while saying that Kate's second husband once wanted HER kind of sealed it for me - like she was daydreaming. I'm so curious to see how th
  13. I caught up on this show yesterday and am completely sucked in! I do like they way they've handled the year-jumping with the lighting - warm and golden for '93, normal for '94, and dark and menacing for '95. Not only does it make it easy to tell them all apart, but it plays into the characters as they were in any given year. I also noticed the different outfit when Kate was banging on the basement door to be let out. My first thought, given how tense things had gotten at home, was that she formed this bond with Martin that turned romantic, and she ultimately ran away and he hid her so
  14. I completely understand how Delores could burst into tears over hearing that her dog made it to Heaven and NOT be emotional over the news of her relationship. There have been many articles written about how much more strongly we bond with - and grieve - our pets as opposed to bonding with other people. I would react exactly the same way. I agree with those who enjoy Bill much more than in previous seasons. For me, it was the time the guys took him out and got him drunk and then lugged him into the house like Navy Seals carrying boats over their heads during training. Ever since then,
  15. I thought the service was beautiful. Gia is gorgeous. And I love that cousins Milania and Antonia are obviously still so close.
