Yes, I KNOW that she was low enough to frame Mr. Bates for murder by committing suicide. But I am no longer completely convinced by his continued portrayal of stoicism in the face of adversity. Is he really such a sad sack that bad things just keep happening to him? Doesn't that version of events sort of detract from his allure?
|Innocent? Or not? And does it matter? Just LOOK at him!|
So, spill it, people: is Mr. Bates a murderer or not? Is he lying to Anna? Just typing those questions feels like a sacrilege. Yet...he didn't seem all that surprised to find himself sitting on death row, is what I'm thinking...
