Last week, some of your theories got pretty close to the truth (but no one got it 100% right). How does this page affect your speculations?
… that is scary resemblance. Margaret and Anges could have be twins.
… Or really close looking mother-daughter.
He’s a widower. I got that right. 0:)
You did. Nicely done!
Okay so Hightower or Agnes WEREN’T asleep, she was just picking up on his delusion?
Man, those have got to be the two loneliest people on the base.
And Mark’s presence is really starting to confound me a bit. What is going on with him?
I should point out that this scene has not really been from Agnes’ point of view. She didn’t seem to realize that Hightower was seeing her as Margaret.
is she acting as his therapist?
Only inasmuch as we all act as therapists for the people we care about.
Being able to “hear” thoughts of other people in your head is tough. Feeling the agony, anguish and loneliness of a friend the same way is hell.
She is Margaret? Whatever experiment gave Agnes her powers also made her youthful? And it has to be kept absolutely secret because…. reasons?
Margaret has a notably rounder face than Agnes. Though they are similar in height and hair style (and color though Margaret’s was lighter) Agnes does share some facial characteristics with hightower (especially the eyes). It seems perfectly plausible that Agnes is the daughter of high tower.
1924 – Omaha Nebraska(Hightower has a northern Midwestern sound to it, jessup has more of a southern ring(then again that may be due to a town named Jessup, Georgia))
A young John Hightower (has his actual first name been given?)rushed his expecting wife to the hospital. The pregnancy had been difficult as influenza had spread throughout their small but comfortable apartment complex. A healthy,beautiful baby girl was born, but unfortunately the stress of childbirth compounded by the flu was more than Margaret could take. she died shortly afterward.
John, having recently enlisted in the army to better support his family, knew he had to ship to basic training in a couple weeks, but the baby needed, a father, and a mother. He asked the doctor to take care of the child while John went to his training. However, when John returned from training, Dr Jessup was gone, nowhere to be found. having lost all he cared for back home John turned his focus to the Army, being commissioned shorty afterward.
Dr Jessup had tried to contact Jomaybe several times before he moved to Sauk Centre, Minnesota but, for one reason or another, the message never went through. The letter sent to ft Sam Houston was withheld by the drill sergeant; the note left at his apartment complex mingled into another tenant’s mail; the local barber given the oral message contracted the measels and died. Not knowing the messages had been lost, Dr Jessup continued to care for young Agnes, waiting for John Hightower to respond until he decided to raise her as his own.
I know its a depressing story, but it would answer several questions such as why neither suspected that they were related. Agnes most likely assumes that Dr Jessup was her father, and Gen Hightower has long given up on seeing his daughter again.
Wow, that’s an elaborate theory!
(Also, Hightower’s first name, Eugene, was mentioned for the first time on this very page.)
*laughing facepalm* can’t believe I missed that. Lol
Actually Eugene fits better for the era anyway
Though in retrospect the theory of the first husband dumping Margaret and taking the child is way simpler…
This is reminding me an episode of Star Trek TNG 4th Season, “Future Imperfect.” Is that what’s going on? Have they been captured and are being subject to some psychological manipulation?
Hmmm…. We’ll find out soon.
Do you plan on releasing PDF’s or print versions of volumes 1-3 at special price for the 4th?
Like an Independence Day sale? We hadn’t talked about it, but that’s not a bad idea! Stay tuned.
You know, as someone who recently lost his wife, the scene at the end where he is crying hits home really hard. Trust me anyone reading this, that reaction is exactly what it is like.
Thanks for sharing that, tromboneguy. I’m sorry for your loss.
Huh, is she shielding herself from the rain? I never noticed that.
Yep! We’ve seen her psychic umbrella once before.
