    well that was sad. It begs the question. Why? Why not just get a divorce?

    it doesn’t really make sense. I wonder if the doc left some stuff out about him.

    Cavill is pretty good :twocents: but he does get cast as the super serious/bland good looking guy sometimes. His role was the same monotone grunt talk in The Witcher

    Watching now and immediately was like he did it when he went off on the most detailed timeline ever. Then he said he worked for Anadarko and I remembered the whole story.

    my two youngest watched it with my wife and said this is what broke their hearts the most. They see me as their protector they couldn’t imagine what the daughters felt knowing the person they trust the most to keep them safe was the one ending their lives. It’s beyond heartbreaking.

    Watched it last night as well and let me tell you I am outraged. I enjoyed the dad tactic on the interrogation, which I also fully expected him to unload a fist to his sons head in the process.

    I fully expected that towards the end as well. I think what saved that was him telling his dad it was his wife who killed the girls, not him.

    Followed the Watts case closely back when it happened. I remember seeing the interview of him (the one where he's wearing the UNC shirt) right after they went missing and immediately thinking something felt off. The way he was acting when the neighbor was showing the security footage was chilling. Literally looking down at this phone almost the entire time because he knew he was totally fucked.

    Also the portrait she painted on Facebook was so incredibly different than what was taking place. Obviously I realize posting all your marital issues on social media would be weird, but you really got the feeling they had a pretty perfect relationship/life when you looked at her posts.

    Some Crime Viral page I follow posted this the other day:

    This scene in American Murderer: The Family Next Door is going to stay with me for a long time. When Chris Watts finally confesses to his father. He just realized he’s lost his grandkids and daughter-in-law forever but still reaches out to his son and holds his arm. You can see the heartbreak and reality finally settle in.

    If you like BBQ at all, Chef’s Table BBQ is really good. Good variety from episode to episode showing different styles, people, places, etc.

    There’s also Great American BBQ Showdown, but that’s a top chef style competition so a different vibe.

    Yeah it was beyond weird. Like making him go back down the airport escalator and come back up so she can record him greeting the kids? Really strange.

    I also know that social media is a big part of one’s life when they’re into the multi-level marketing shit like she was. So that obviously was a big part of it too. I just know there’s no way I personally could be in that sort of a relationship.

    I’m absolutely not victim blaming by any means. Instead of splitting up, the dude murdered his wife and kids and deserves nothing but the worst for the rest of his existence.

    When the dad came in and already knew that tells me that there’s a whole lot more shit about Chris Watts that we weren’t shown. There had to be red flags everywhere. For a parent to walk in and just be unphased by their adult son murdering his family is something else.

    Just watched American Murder

    How it was made with all the police body can footage was interesting. Don't think I've seen a doc made like that before

    But holy fuck at the last 10 minutes. Was not expecting a confession. That's one of the most horrifying things I've ever heard. Literally got sick during it. He was so nonchalant about it

    The fact the kids thought this dude was a hero all the while your kids were either alive or dead in the same car as your wife you just murdered is insane.

    Think she tried to put out to everyone that they had this perfect marriage, but the whole Facebook was crazy to me

    when she went to the cops it was so obvious she was lying to them, she almost looked like a child trying to lie, she was to emphatic.

    that being said, she probably pushed him hard to dump his family but there is no reason to think she wanted him to kill them.

    I haven’t made a decision yet as to whether or not the mistress was lying to the cops. The texts make it pretty clear he was lying to her a lot but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.

    I want to believe she simply went to the cops because she saw the missing persons report and finally was smart enough to piece everything together. The shit she was googling was obviously weird and doesn’t help her case at all.

    Facebook internet detectives are theorizing she was involved and in the truck the night it all happened solely bc there was a passenger side light on or something.

    You mean the surveillance video they were watching in his neighbor’s living room? Oh yeah that’s everywhere. I haven’t rewatched to see if the passenger light theory has any legs. Seems pretty dumb to me.

    I don’t think she ever said anything to him about killing his kids or wife but how can you watch this and not think she is lying. First she doesn’t even let the cop finish before saying NEVER! Never! And what mistress doesn’t bitch about the wife, i mean she was shopping for a wedding dress for crying out loud.

    I am definitely assuming some stuff, but it’s just common sense imo.

    Maybe she was shopping for the dress because she believed he and Shanann had split like he told her.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s weird either way to start dress shopping after two months.
