It was SO obvious something bad was coming. That was brutal. I agree that it will set up some good storylines for the season, but I still hate that it happened, especially to Anna. She and Bates finally had a little bit of happiness. I know that happy couples aren't great for drama, but on this show, I think it's okay. Anna was right that, if she told Bates what happened, he would likely kill the rapist. Still, you know the truth will come out.
I just have to say how much I love Mrs. Hughes. Love her.
Edna needs to fall down a mine shaft. She can take Anna's rapist with her.
