- I believe that she was drunk. In fact, I think Maura may have been an alcoholic.
- She set out for the hills as a getaway (perhaps to commit suicide, but that’s not probable, I don’t believe)
- There is no such thing as a “nervous breakdown”. That is a misleading term not used in the mental health lexicon. One simply keeps trying until they can’t try anymore. Although the action taken may look sudden, the thinking is not.
- If I took one thing away from the Oxygen series, it was that her older sister knows exactly what was going on, and why Maura did what she did. She came off like someone running cover for somebody
- Impaired, she crashed her car. Remember, she’d crashed her dad’s car the day before (drunk as well.)
- Two car crashes, lots of drinking, boyfriend cheating on her, U Mass nursing being second choice after failing West Point (imagine the shame involved in that.)
- She got out, messed with stuff in the trunk, got her stuff, started walking down the road, and got picked up about 100 yards away.
- I think this may have been pretty impulsive. Sure, she did her nursing homework the night before she left, but that’s not improbable. It’s not like she’d been sitting around malingering for weeks. Stiff upper lip, do what’s expected of you until you just can’t do it anymore.
- What happened to her after she got picked up is a completely different issue. This is just how she got there. What happened once in that car may never be known.
- Remember, just because she wanted to get away for a while, or to disappear, or even to commit suicide, this does not preclude that some bad actor got her in his car. These are not mutually exclusive.
- Or, for all we know, some nice guy having his own life problems picked her up, they got to know each other and decided to light out for Canada together.
Remember, she is still just a missing person. People turn up 40 years after disappearing sometimes.
