As passive-aggressive punishment for her children for perceived slights, or at least that's how I read it. It seems as if the kids sided with Logan in the divorce and subsequently kept their distance. How awful must Caroline have been as a mother if the kids decided they'd rather take their chances with the abusive monster Logan than her? The mind reels. 9 hours ago, rue721 said: On the one hand, I feel bad for Kendall because I don't really think that the waiter's death was his fault (to me, it seemed like a tragic accident more than anything) and seeing him walk around like a shell of a person is just so depressing. On the other hand, it's like, shit or get off the pot. If you think you should accept responsibility, than walk into the police station and do that. Yes, exactly. Kendall knows exactly what to do if he wants to feel better about his role in the waiter's death: march into a police station and confess all. There's nothing Logan could do to stop him if he decided once and for all to end this farce, and if Ted Kennedy's fate is any indication, Kendall wouldn't do any serious prison time, either. (Ted Kennedy's biggest punishment for Chappaquiddick was that it probably scuppered his chance to be President, which...boo fucking hoo.) Kendall doesn't want to do that, though: instead, we have Kendall making the occasional sad face in between corporate intrigue and romps with Naomi. Also, if Kendall were really serious about atoning for what he did, he would be working on himself and would be getting sober first and foremost; it was his drug addiction issues that led to a man's death in the first place, so a minimal step would be ensuring that he never hurt anyone else with his addiction issues ever again. Instead, he's not only still on drugs, which certainly hasn't helped his mental state, but he has now entered into a romantic relationship with another addict. Of course, getting high all the time and banging a beautiful heiress is fun and easy, while getting sober and steering clear of relationships with beautiful, charismatic addicts because they're unhealthy is unfun and hard, so here we are. Furthermore, remember that Kendall coerced an unwilling "I don't do white drugs" Greg into doing cocaine at Tom's bachelor party in Season 1 to prevent Kendall from ODing (a hideous thing for which Kendall never apologized). In Season 2, Greg begs Roman for some cocaine at Argestes, pathetically pleading "I need a boost." This is another example of the toxic effect Kendall's addiction has had on others: he manipulated Greg into doing lines, and now Greg "needs" cocaine to deal with stressful situations. He's continuing to harm people with his addictions, maybe even fatally depending on how Greg deals with his drug issues, and he refuses to take responsibility for any of it or change. ...So yeah, Kendall feels bad about the waiter? Great. He needs a wakeup call. Edited September 24, 2019 by Eyes High 7 Link to comment
