  1. I just re-watched this episode. If you can’t feel for Maryanne, you must be missing a core part of being human. To lose a child is something nobody should know, but to lose two children, as children, at two separate times… horrible. I’ll never forget what she said about how it’s what nightmares are made of, that you can’t make a movie that scary. I don’t wanna sound like I support her descent into addiction, but I can’t really blame her. She, by all accounts, was a great mom, and of all people didn’t deserve the pain she went through.
