Jessicades, IMO everything done by MS is for his benefit. He is a USER. I believe MS had this murderous plan in the works for a while. When he met TS, he knew right then and there...BINGO...he had it made in the shade. He was gaslighting her for a while, and that is the least of what he had in mind for TS. There is a saying - the best way to love your children, is to love your spouse. He didn't love his children, he didn't love his wife, he loved himself.
