Katherine asks Charley to watch over her family after she’s gone not to replace Katherine but to be herself and guide them through the process of a “new normal.” Vance from episode 2 visits the House for a Thanksgiving discussion about how the holidays aren’t the same
My Opinion: I must be honest this was a tough episode for me as I have lost so many loved ones in my life and a bunch before I turned 18 and went to funerals as a child. Seems like there was so much tragedy in my family tree; I lost my aunt when I was maybe 6 she wanted to adopt me and showed me so much love her husband my uncle was a logger and a tree fell on him and after she passed he went to be with her in heaven shortly after that. I have suffered so much heartache in this life and wonder if it is all worth it at times. I was helpless when my dad got rare stomach cancer in 2019 he was diagnosed in August and 2 days after Christmas he died and I wondered what is God’s plain as he was the one who worked hard his whole life. As I sit her crying thinking of all the loss I experienced it gets hard sometimes to be strong but I understand God has his reasons.
‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” – Revelation 21:4 (NIV)
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. – Psalms 46:1-3
