The poor woman has been stuck in Purgatory for 200 years. Her life has (literally) been Hell.
And what has she really done wrong?
Been vague? She knew Moloch was watching. Refused to marry Abraham? Man, God forbid the the woman was unhappy about an arranged marriage. OK, giving up Jeremy was a mistake but she didn’t know what would happen.
Really, the fact that she’s managed to get through all this without turning into a mental wreck is a testament to how strong she is.
I absolutely adore John Noble’s character, if anything happens to him, I will scream and rage to the high heavens!!!!
Maybe he decided an older form would be less threatening and more trusting to implement his deceit.
