The Kid reveals to Molly that he is Henry Deaver, the biological son of Ruth and Pastor Matthew from an alternate reality. In a flashback in the Kid's universe, Ruth followed through on leaving her troubled husband in 1991, taking her child and fleeing to Boston. After they left, the Pastor was not murdered by 12-year-old Molly, but did find 12-year-old black Henry who went missing in 1991 in his reality. In 2018, this Pastor Deaver commits suicide, and grown white Henry finds the adopted Henry in a cage in the basement. White adult Henry and his Molly talk to adopted Henry, who insists the voices are calling him to the woods. When Molly touches his hand, she sees the first 12 years of the Molly and Henry of his reality. Molly and white Henry take adopted Henry to the woods near Castle Lake, where they see people from centuries of multiple realities. Molly is accidentally killed, adopted Henry returns to his reality, and white Henry follows him, becoming the Kid.

What a confused mess
11 December 2020 | by professor_of_gamezSee all my reviews

Jeez. My first reaction upon viewing this is that if the writers of the different episodes (for all I know, the same person'people) don't talk to each other, at the very least they should watch each other's episodes.

I just read the above "story line" AFTER watching the episode ... and wondered allowed : "THAT'S what happened?" How would anyone, without the benefit of the story line, know that THAT'S what happened?

Anyone who claims they did is just lying to themselves.
