Melissa explains why she was so hesitant to send Antonia to Teresa's house.

Why was she pretending to be nice, when she said she didn’t “give a sh-t about me?” Why was she acting like she suddenly wanted to fix things when she hadn’t lifted a finger in a year? It just felt completely insincere.

Her sudden change was so weird and confusing, I was thrown by it. I focused on helping the kids make jewelry. My OCD really came out when the kids were beading. I’m the same way about keepings things organized at home. I can’t help it! Bring on the neat.

Anyway, I want the cousins to be close. That’s how I grew up. We moved to Montville in the first place so they could go to school together.  The only reason they’re not as close as they could be is because Teresa had herself involved in a lot of wrong doings that brought hurt to our family. Case in point -- the lies at the end of last season. It's not fair for her to say, “Oh, poor kids,” when she was the one involved in destroying the trust we had just started to build again.
