      I think its a physical manifestation of her guilty conscience warring with
      her devotion and loyalty to Mr. Carpenter. I can imagine the closer they get
      to their goal, the more likely she'll have a nervous breakdown.

      That's probably it. I just forgot that little tidbit, even though it was a
      couple of episodes ago.

      Maybe its the cold affection he's adversely reacting to. That distant
      politeness that says I don't care for you at all, but I'm too polite to be
      mean to you about it. I get that way with customers a lot. It could also be
      that he's discovering his emotions. They treat him like a pet, not a human
      being and until he met Anita, he didn't know any better. Or he could be just
      well be on his way to becoming a loon. I'll comment more after episode 14.

      Hmm. Oh well, then I'll amend it to say at some point later in the series.

      I see we're back to "who's your Daddy and what does he do?" Gentleman was
      creepy, Junior's becoming creepy, hmm, could be. Yeah, it does explain why
      Carpenter is not fatherly, towards Junior, but he's also affectionate
      towards Wendy too, and it just could be, "You're beneath me, but I'm too
      proper to be openly contemptuous of you." At this point, I think whatever
      relationships Carpenter has are just a means to an end. But, really I wish
      there were more episodes out, so we could just find out already.
