Great point about survival instinct. I think children in abusive situations do learn how to avoid the insanity to some degree. I've seen some grow into their teens and intentionally push those same buttons they learned how to avoid, seeking one final confrontation to have it done with- not sure if that's a good idea or not, I think it has to do with the typical teen need to assert independence. In abusive instances though, it must be so much harder.
I was so glad Sydney was able to get some help to get away. It must seem impossible for some of these women to figure a way out- we all could tune in a bit more- maybe we could be the ones to help someone like Sydney.

Charmed and charming. I liked the back story we got on so many of the families- which is one of the reasons I'm hoping Sarah will continue with these characters in this setting at some time in the future.
I think the idea that everyone ends up where they are and who they are for a reason is part of what's appealing about the residents of Bascom. It's easy to picture and easy to think about how we might fit in there.
Group: Would you like to live in Bascom? What would be the positive and negative aspects for you?
