i tjink its interesting that while alicia is dead in madisons hallucination, shes like .. there? constantly? same as her being on the wall? because nick is there but hes only there for alicia? not his mother? not for all the effort she put into making christmas happen? doesn't even speak to her? questionably "better off" without her? i think its like. alicia being "with" her mother but dead inside? nick there at all only for alicias sake??
