1. Why would a criminal want to hide so long? Is she suddenly afraid?
I believe that in this instance, the woman who killed the cop didn't have any desire to truly be that level
of a criminal. Once she was done with the robbery and saw her "partners in crime" killed, i think it struck
a nerve in her head that made her realize this was not a life she wanted to live. I think that family became
a larger part of her life after that, and that was a reason she wanted to stay hidden. She admits to have
only started that family in the first place as a way to keep hidden, but then they truly meant a lot to her as
a family should. I think this is why she was more afraid once they found her and were going to arrest her.
2. Why keep showing the same period of time over and over?
I think this was done to drive home the scene and give the audience more information slowly. This episode
jumps around a lot, going to different times and parts of the story, not in order. I enjoyed this way of seeing
the episode, because it kept details hidden a little longer and also kept the audience paying attention more
to make sure they would understand everything in the end.
