I don't know who I feel worse for right now.
The way that I read it, Karen... may be regretting what she's saying? And that would explain the tears?
You guys are probably right, though.
That she realizes how close she came to losing everything, and that's why she's crying.
But I don't know, I read it as a guilt thing.
Because we all do know that Karen feels bad about a lot of this.
And... I don't know.
But I hope Aggie's okay after this.
And I hope the title "suicide run" doesn't indicate that she's going to do something stupid because of this.
Aggie, I think, has too strong a sense of self and life to do something as petty, selfish and weak as suicide. But, that's my view on suicide.
As for Karen, I'm of the mind that she's crying because she almost lost it all and in realizing that she didn't she's unleashing that pained fury on who almost took it all from her, possibly the only person who can take it from her. If she is crying because she's doing bad things for petty reasons, well then it just sucks to be here then.
I'd dislike Karen a lot less if she was doing bad things for selfish reasons and didn't regret it, her regretting it shows that she knows that she is doing wrong, yet she continues to willfully do it, which makes her a real crappy human being.
It at least shows that she's human.
