UPDATED: SPOILER ALERT! Apparently Avery dumps the crazy lady on Dr. Phil tomorrow. So now I guess I have to watch tomorrow.
Dr Phil continues his charade of interviewing people related to major trial news. Today it is a woman who wants to marry Stephen Avery the guy from the Netflix Series Making A Murderer who was falsely convicted of rape and released only to return to prison after being convicted of murdering another woman.
I hope that Dr. Phil will point out that Stephen Avery is guilty. Recently however, a young boy, Brenden Dassey who was also convicted of being involved had his verdict thrown out. Brenden seemed is said to be three standard deviations below the mean intellectually and incapable of forming intent. Also his confession was captured on video as being extremely leading and if I recall correctly the officer conducting the interview told him he could go home if he just wrote down what they told him to.
Okay, this lady is a nutcase. She got a card from him and was “touched by his innocence.” Perhaps I should point out that the gene pool of the Avery family is extremely shallow and what she sees as innocence is actually low intelligence. She has said the word innocent eleventy billion times in the first ten minutes. Also in the first few minutes, Dr. Phil brings up the multi-million dollar lawsuit Stephen has against the county. Dr. Phil is in totally smarmy nice mode with this woman, which is his tell that he doesn’t believe a word out of her mouth.
She was so excited about getting a letter from a convicted murderer that she put her son in the car and they drove the TWO BLOCKS to her mother’s house. I am not sure I am going to make it through this hour. I know y’all wanted me to cover this, but really? This is some full blown crazy. And Dr. Phil is mocking the hell out of her calling Avery her Convict Casanova.
She continues to tell her deluded story about how Stephen has saved her life, and her life has prepared her for this moment. Dr. Phil asks her if she picked out a dress and a ring. The audience laughs. Then the crazy lady makes even less sense and we see her being surprised by the same dress she had picked out. Was it purchased by Dr. Phil ? Who knows. We are deep into the bat shit levels of crazy here and her batshit crazy doesn’t share the same language as mine so I am having trouble following her delusions.
Dr, Phil starts bringing up the word “attention” a lot. He doesn’t use the whore, as in “attention whore” but he is thinking it. Then he suddenly reads us an illiterate letter from Stephen. He makes sure not to self correct any of the grammatical errors, which are numerous. It mentions that she has blocked her phone so he can’t call her. Could be finally be getting to the good part? She seems to be slightly embarrassed. She tries to lie about blocking his phone and then says she did have a block on the phone. Dr. Phil points out that Avery lacks a high school education. He wonders how compatible she would be with an uneducated convicted killer.
Finally, we are going to talk what a golddigging media whore she is. But so far, only in the sense that she is being “bullied online.” She claims someone tried to run her off the road after visiting Avery for the first time.
I don’t understand women doing this for attention. I mean we are a few levels of hell below real housewife here and the payoff is what exactly? Does she really think the county is going to pay them millions? I get the feeling that getting on Dr. Phil was her goal and she may drop the farce after this.
I don’t know why I didn’t realize this is a two parter. I doubt I will recap the other show tomorrow. I might. Avery is supposed to call in. According to the idiot lady I refuse to name, he sounds much more intelligent on the phone. I can’t wait to hear that. This episode had no point other than to set up tomorrow’s dramatic conclusion.
