Can we talk about Bobby’s house?
Here’s the Singer house in Dream a Little Dream. This is the memory of his home the day Karen died. (gif credit)
It’s so bright and clean, like the sort of picturesque thing you’d see in Southern Living Magazine. And look at those flowers! It would be easy to say the flowers were all Karen, but I don’t think so. I garden in my tiny yard, and that is a team effort. (It’s also possible the house didn’t look this good, but it’s how Bobby remembers it when he thinks of her.)
Now let’s look at the house decades after Karen’s death (gif credit)
The paint is peeling, the windows boarded up. The junk yard (which he had when he was married) has crept closer to the house. We can’t see the front yard, but I bet there aren’t any flowers.
By his own confession, the only thing that kept Bobby from caving in on himself was the Winchester boys.
