So in modern psychology most of Freuds Hypothesi have been proven inaccurate. Including the oedipus theory. I would propose that it was more the scrubbing of him in the bathtub with a emphasis on his gentiles that brought on these feelings.

Thankyou for telling me at the start that this particular case has child abuse and others that you always warn about prior to starting the narrative. Cheers.

This show would be so much better without the constant psychology aspect. Yeah we know.

It would be nice if these serial murderers would target the bullies that created them. At least it would be easier to comprehend. You put my face in dirty toilet water, you and everyone that helped would be my target.

This guy should be considered a hero. If he's only killing pedos, let him him free.

there are some things that as a fan of the genre there are some things that really don't need to be explained. Love the show, but feel spoken down to.
