Congratulations to everyone in these comments on never having been the victim of coercive control! Here’s hoping you never end up with a guy like John, who is, you seem to have forgotten, the actual villain.

This woman...she has no boundaries, no self respect. Knowing what Deb's mother did for the man that killed her daughter tells me everything I need to know about why Deb is the way she is. SMH.

She was a victim until the police reports came out. After that, she was a volunteer.

I don't know whether to think she's dumb, or feel bad for her bc she's obviously so lonely. But one thing for sure... her mother is a piece of shit!!

Why are so many people on here judging this poor woman? She is like the women who are abused but dont press charges etc...Debbie needs support, not mean rude comments. Just saying.

I see that so many people here are quick to blame the victim in this situation. It's always easier to see abuse from the outside looking in, but when you're actually IN the relationship, it is SO much more difficult to see the wool being pulled over your eyes. This man manipulated Debbie, he figured out how to exploit her emotions to the point where she questioned everything about herself, and her family's intentions. We can see how horrible John is because he's not manipulating us. Let's not forget who the victim is here. Debbie certainly does not need to be berated, she needed help seeing John for who he is.

The more episodes and the deeper into an episode the more I bug my eyes out, shake my head and drop my jaw. This lady is beyond naive and has no self respect or a motherly instinct!!!

It seems to me that John knew her buttons. He didn't have to hit her. He used her emotions against her. He isolated her like most abusive people do. He made it so he was her only lifeline. The guy was a genius at mind games.
