Okay, where are my fellow watchers?? Did you see the season premiere? AWESOME

post #2 of 26

HERE I AM!  Yup, watched it last night.  It was alright.  I still want to chuck charmaine out the window, love Moosh, and the daughter makes my teeth itch.  But I still enjoyed it all. 

 

Help me out, because my husband wouldnt shut it during the first scene, but who was that Buck held a gun on?

I think it was their brother...

 

 

So what's up with the suicidal alter? Or, the one that wants to kill her? It's almost like it doesn't want her to do psychology because she'll figure something out about herself (or about it).... It can't be Gimme because that alter seems like just a trouble maker.

I'm a little late but who was the guy Buck held a gun to? Who's brother? 

 

I love this show! I think this season is going to be especially interesting with Tara going back to college. What'd you think of her professor? Do you really think he doesn't believe in DID? I thought it was horrible how he put her on the spot like that in class - i.e., the part where he says the class is going to skip ahead to the chapter on DID.

Tara's brother. They found out last season finale.

 

And I buy that he doesn't believe in DID. Lots of psychs dont. It's easy to fake

Just catching up on season 3 episodes I wonder if that guy really is their brother, I think she had the wrong guy.. 


 

post #10 of 26

I think she did, because in episode 3, Buck is knocking on another door, and the guy that answers, although has the same name, very CLEARLY is not her brother.

 

So I think Buck is on the hunt, but hasnt found him yet. 

post #11 of 26

I am finally caught up, and I have to say I am disappointed that they aren't focusing more on this long lost brother. I felt like they really built up the mystery surrounding a forgotten male in the family and now they are barely touching the subject.

last weeks final scene was KILLER.  LOVED IT! 

 

The daughter is driving me bat shiz.  Someone shut her up already. 

 

I was actually totally feeling Charmaine last night.  I get it.  When I put myself in her shoes, I TOTALLY got it.

Yes to everything!

 

The whole birth irritated me TBH...Just, ugh.

 

I want to know what it looked like when Tara was having her meeting. That's kind of a cool thought. In the book The Flock the woman with DID said that her alters would do homework at the same time. Like, her left hand would be doing math homework and her right hand would be taking notes during lecture. Kind of neat...I find DID terribly interesting.

 

post #14 of 26

WHOOPS, must have mentally blocked the birth scene, because now that I thikn of it, it bugged me too.  HOWEVER, loving Neil, his comment about it looking like lincoln after he was shot in the face made me spit out my coffee.  LMAO

I'm thinking I'm going to laugh during the next episode...the "I even killed a goat and made a sacrifice to Satan NOTHING IS WORKING!!!" is totally something I can relate to with DS1. The child never slept. He STILL doesn't sleep. If I bring it up AT ALL I get "have you tried XYZ? Oh. Q? Oh F?"  We have tried e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. and the kid just doesn't sleep.


 

post #16 of 26

How about when Tara says "She sounds a little colicky to me".  and Neil gets on the phone and goes, "Yea, she tends to get that when when she gets stressed out" thinking tara was talking about Charmaine.  PEED MY PANTS!

OMG I want to know more about this destructive alter NOW.

post #18 of 26

"pump it, dump it, and buy yourself some formula".  GAH

I thought the same thing! I have never run into other mom's that get drunk during the day. OTH, a preschool teacher at my son's preschool was just fired for getting a DUI in the middle of the day with her kids in the car.

I am really liking the direction of the show, FINALLY more info about the step brother.

This! DH is starting to get into the show (he'd never seen it until the last few episodes) and he said, "I'm glad I'm getting into it NOW. I don't think I would have before..." and he's right, he would have hated it.

 

 

The moms group annoyed me. Really? I guess it was supposed to be a caricature or something...I didn't find them funny. I liked the mom when she was at the spa...
