I think we're still going to see that nose injury really soon, but it won't be an accident.

Honestly, I'd be surprised if that ended up being his mother. Or maybe the "mother" we've been seeing is actually a step-mother?

I'm pretty sure that's his stepmother, given some previous versions of the story, though thus far I haven't worked out how their relationship came to this. That hug, with her cupping the back of his head and her arm around his back, seems to protective, but she's not nearly as soft to him as it suggests-

Oh my god I just realized the obvious symbolic significance of Beauty and her mother being associated with birds, and the Beast trying all of his life to protect the birds under his care, and the authority figure(s) in his life trying to hurt/kill them. Goddamn it, that's so obvious, how did I miss that?

(Sigh.) Well at least she managed to save little Argus.

I want it to be his mother, purely because I am tired of seeing Evil Stepmother tropes, as tired as I think my actual stepmother is of seeing them, too.

I have seen bad mothers. My own has her flaws.

The neighbor regularly hit her children. She even kicked her own daughter at the wedding ceremony in the ass. The daughter did not Show up for ten years after that.
