On the Run
19 April 2019 | by scottsetchellSee all my reviews

After Nick murders Dee Dee, he and Gypsy flee to a motel before leaving Springfield and heading to Wisconsin. Gypsy becomes severely stressed and anxious until they leave town.

In 1991, Gypsy's birth shows Dee Dee's possessive tendencies in the first minutes she's alive. Dee Dee believes there's something wrong with her. Dee Dee is arrested on felony check fraud and serves six months in prison. Her mother takes care of Gypsy. In 1993 she's released and thinks Gypsy is sick. In 1997, Dee Dee's mother gets sick and dies. Gypsy has a minor injury on the trampoline and Dee Dee rushes her to the hospital and gives her a wheel chair.

This episode moves the story along only a few days but we get to see background into Gypsy's childhood. Dee Dee is obsessive with Gypsy from the moment she's born. It's very interesting to see Gypsy's upbringing since she looks like a normal, healthy girl. After Dee Dee's mother died, there was no one left to care for Gypsy except for Dee Dee.
