- Reaction score
Do you think it could be a control thing? That she always needed to be in control and decide when and if Scott would leave the house, maybe depending on how things panned out with her new boyfriend and the paternity issues, and suddenly Bee's report was going to usurp her position of power?
I mean I do think SaW's reaction after Bee's murder was not normal for a mother, so whilst evil might not be the best descriptor, certainly I think there were deep issues with her relationships to her children, and the detachment and all the scheming and lies and manipulation, as well as her narcissism, would point to sociopathic personality traits which wouldn't have suddenly sprung last year. These traits would have been responsible for people thinking she was previously a good mother whereas that would have been part of the show. I think it's not helpful to try to understand her just in terms of her being a mother and with that trying to fit her into any kind of mould. I think she just didn't genuinely care about anyone but herself and once anyone stopped being of use or service to her (ie a reason she could be praised) they were history. It's the constant manipulation, as a way of life, that leaves people in the inner circle in disbelief, shock and denial, because that means they have to question their own judgement, I think, and their part in enabling the abuser. I see her as an abuser, I think she is abusing her oldest children right now. I think Bee's report threatened to remove the castle that Sarah had built over years, where she had 'standing', where everything was a sham and others were keeping the show going. I think everything had to be done and was done on Sarah's terms. So the question what did she have to gain is better asked as what did she have to lose, IMO.
Only my opinion from following true crime and premeditated murders at WS, not a professional opinion.
Very well said. I have been thinking this way about SaW from very early on but could not quite convey it the way you have.
There is definitely some cluster B disorders going on there with SaW IMO
