Under His Eye
- With hindsight, June must feel guilt over every situation in which she had to leave Hannah behind. Every one of those memories must be laced with questions of what if? What if she had let Hannah stay home from school that day and they had spent it together instead? What if she had just given her daughter one more hug before leaving for work? School drop off is such a normal activity for most parents. Here, it’s just another example of all the activities and normalcies we take for granted; the idea that June would see her daughter again in just a few hours.
- I was so happy when Holly showed up at the hospital, even if she was late. She and June have their fair share of mother-daughter issues, but I’m glad this didn’t turn out to be the catalyst for another one. I believe this is one of those “good things” that June is attempting to include in her story. Naming her new baby after her mother was a touching tribute, even if June will be the only one to ever know about it.
- What did everyone else make of the dog? I took it to mean June had someone watching over her, at least until she delivered the baby safely. It’s probably something darker than that, though, given what show we’re discussing.
