Please don’t reduce Carson to being stupid bc he hasn’t figured out what happened to Anna. Although there are other times when he has been less than clever, this isn’t one of those times. This is him trusting Mrs Hughes implicitly, the result of his complete loyalty and faith in her to tell him everything, the way he has told her everything, okay?? *gets emotional* And if being loyal to a fault makes him dumb, then yes, I’m on board with that, as long as we aren’t taking it at face value.
What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany’s at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No, I go for the chandelier. It’s priceless. As I’m taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It’s her father’s business. She’s Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning, the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico, but I go to Canada. I don’t trust her. Besides, I like the cold. Thirty years later, I get a postcard. I have a son and he’s the chief of police. This is where the story gets interesting. I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris by the Trocadero. She’s been waiting for me all these years. She’s never taken another lover. I don’t care. I don’t show up. I go to Berlin. That’s where I stashed the chandelier.
