Because killing your only living link to the throne in a fit of rage is going to solve all your problems...

Did mommy dearest ever have any redeeming qualities?

Her plans have failed, so he's useless to her now. She wants to "Correct her mistake" if you will.

Wow... didn't see that coming...
as quickly as it did anyhow...

anyone else feel like their watching a train crash happening in real time or is that just me?

Oooh, I learned a new word! "Inamorata" sounds a lot nicer than what she could have called Argus' lady.

In other news, I'm a little worried about who is going to harm who more in the next page...

That woman needs a psychiatrist. She's ether having a mental breakdown or she's sick to the brain.

Men have their wars and heroisms and other stupidness. Women have intrigues and shenanigans.

Well, this is going to end well...

Attacking your only heir in a fit of rage isn't a "rational response;" but is is on the "list of irrational responses for the psychotically unbalanced when their delusions have been flushed down life's toilet."
Wish this had no connection to real life but happens.

She won't stop at this.

Is it just me, or momma dearest is gonna make a pact with a witch that is gonna get her killed or *cough* trapped for the endless life as a statue in the house she wanted so damn much?

PS: She needs someone to stop her ASAP.

For anyone keeping track, that is not the knife that appears on page II.i.31; any matricide here will likely not be the "mortal sin" that brings the curse.

Jessie Blue
here it is if anyone wants a refresher.
You know, looking back at it now, I'm going to throw my vote for his "mortal sin" was trying to kill himself, we see him on his knees covered in blood, and he seems to be alone in front of the fountain.

Well, mother dearest, I think you forgot you have a grown son on your hands, a son who is bigger and stronger than you. He's not a little kid anymore (in physical stature at any rate... the state of his mind after years of emotional abuse is a little more uncertain)

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Even the tiniest of person can have amazing strength in them, when in the grip of intense emotions.

I'm more concerned about the upturned blade and the backward motion.
AbigailBrooks 22nd Jan 4:50 PM, 2017
Now his mother is attacking him with a letter opener! That blade may be blunt, but it could still do a lot of damage if she stabbed him with it! I'm glad he manages to stop her, but this doesn't bode well for the "mortal sin" he committed that turned him into a Beast. The question is, did he kill his mother in a similar struggle like this, or did he try to kill himself instead? Given the direction Argus's life is going in, along with his depression (and his suicidal actions in the present), him trying to commit suicide at the fountain seems more and more probable as being the sin behind his curse.
