Kate isn’t the only one in the family with issues. While Kate feels shame, Rebecca assigns blame. When thinking about her daughter’s lifelong issues and all the trauma, Rebecca points the finger at a surprising person. The actress told TV Insider that Rebecca blames herself.
“I think Rebecca really carried around a lot of guilt and shame that, had Jack still been alive, there’s no way Kate would have found herself in a relationship like [the one she had with] Marc. And being preoccupied with trying to get herself back on her own two feet, and finding them a new home, and starting a new job, she feels like she’s really spread thin, and there’s just so much disequilibrium in her life at this point.”
We already know that Kate will be dealing with her shameful secret and self-esteem in season 5. It is quite possible that Rebecca will also be dealing with her issues. Can both women confront their traumas and extend forgiveness so that they can find healing? We will have to wait for the new season to air in order to find out.
