    I completely missed her saying she had a pet shop. Also pretty telling the way she refers to the goldfish as "things" when she says she told Todd "that's not how you get rid of things you don't want anymore". A lesson that these were LIVING things and why it's wrong to kill/torture living things for no reason at all would have been a better lesson, IMO.

    Along with all the horrific revelations, she felt the need to lock TK in his bedroom and herself in her bedroom to be safe. What more evidence does a mom need to seek therapy for he and her child?

    I agree. (not opening a bucket) Personally, I don't think he believed in God and it is a little surprising that RT hasn't said anything about him going to church. Not saying it would've helped him, but she did say she "tried everything" and I'd be curious to know if he'd had any exposure growing up. And I apologize, I was being ugly in implying his mother was the only one who didn't want him to die yet. These videos make my blood boil and tend to bring out the worst in me :(

    It's no wonder TK's mom feels that it is understandable that he locked people up. She did it, herself, to him. What if, as a child, TK had to use the bathroom at night? Did he ring a bell and his mom unlocked everything, waited, and then led him back and relocked him in? Or did he pee in a bucket or something? Wasn't there also something about her locking him in the basement? Pretty sick stuff.

    I get that she might have been desperate and just in survival mode, but it doesn't sound like this was a temporary thing. For her to mention it makes it seems like a significant element of his upbringing.

    She was quite a beautiful brunette when she was young and TK's female victims (the ones we know about) resemble her at that stage. It seems too simple, but maybe he just keeps on acting out what he wanted to do as child--kill the bad guy then lock up mom so she couldn't leave.

    Just watched the episode last night, now that I've got Thanksgiving out of the way. Being that he raped a girl when he was 15, it's likely he sexually assaulted her.

    I agree with you for the most part, except that if someone really does have a "smart mouth", does that really give you the right to shoot and kill them because you feel disrespected??? That's called being a vigilante, and the law doesn't agree.

    For a narcisstic sociopath, it could be something that small. This guy had major anger issues. His mother made pitiful attempts to get him help. They might not even have teased him- but it was his perception that they did.

    BBM. That's what occured to me. Perhaps Todd's mother's parents saw signs of mental illness in her and knew she shouldn't have children...

    Yes because it would have gotten him more time back then and added further restrictions on what he could have done when he got back to South Carolina. Seems like the rape was swept under the carpet.
