      This is a creepypasta in the making because "the watcher" is a great name for a creepypasta

      The bois need to appreciate that I cancelled a date just to watch this. That is how good this series is.

      For the post-mortem, can you explore your mini theory about the whole neighborhood being in on it? Do you think it might actually be possible? I thought it was pretty interesting, reminds me of the guy who got murdered in broad daylight and everyone covered it up.

      One letter mentions the house having secrets for the kids/family to find, and mentions of the basement and attic. Was there any information about the house or its contents being unusual or was that just the Watcher being his cryptic self?

                    I know they brushed it off but the family being motivated by money is what makes the most sense to me. Just get two massive dogs to guard the house and get home security.

                          Why did they throw the note away? If my kids were mentioned I’d go immediately to the police to file a report. Just sayin
