He’s a psychopath and it’s scary how well he learned to fake remorse and tell the story of real abuse. Like I agree with what he was saying but for other people, not him and those cold, dead eyes. I do feel empathy for him only in that he has no idea of his depravity and inhumanity.
That's the allure though, they won't get killed because their lover is safely behind bars, not cheating or treating them like crap like the other people in their life. Willfull ignorance and wanting to be "loved" so badly by anyone. So sad.
