Yeah I heard that grandparents rarely get a chance to fight to take custody from any parent.
But then Mary Louise must have unlimited resources because how did her lawyer get pictures of all the men Celeste supposedly slept with? Many of them are one-night stands and yet they hired PIs, to run them down and get their pictures taken?
And the simulation also would cost a lot of money but without expert witnesses, who also cost a lot of money, I doubt a lawyer would spend that kind of money in a custody case.
However, of course the main women had to feel threatened, not just about Celeste losing custody but their whole collusion to like was at stake.
I doubt a small town PD would also pursue this case so hard. Especially when the suspects are white, upper-middle class or rich women and families.
I would more buy it if Perry's death became a national or international story and you had all these reporters descend upon Monterey, digging, hiring PIs and so on.
Or like True Detective, there was a documentary filmmaker who was on the case and uncovered a lot of inconvenient facts.
But Season 2 has a slightly higher RT score than Season 1.
