This episode was about Shelly Lientz and her evil spawn Derrick. I knew it was a bad sign when she used the past tense when referring to Maisie the mother of her grandchild. Obviously with a title like Evil Lives Here you're expecting horrible shit to happen. Anyhoo this woman really should have listened to her ex Bob who told her she shouldn't do the show and I agree with him. If the point was to show how utterly and totally she failed as mother she nailed it. It just sickens me that this woman has custody of her grandchild that she called by her son's name. Well that's not good. I feel horrible for Gabe. I guess Maisie's parents aren't too great because they didn't care about their knocked up teen before she was killed but you would think they'd see how they failed her and would want to get custody of this child especially from this woman who is totally useless and frankly is just as much to blame as her son for what he did.
This show has an interesting twist because it is from the perspective of the family members of the killer which often get overlooked because people are more focused on the victims loved ones which totally makes sense. It is kind of sad that people don't give more thought to the other side since they aren't all to blame for what someone did although in this case I don't feel bad for this bitch at all. Sure this is a horrible thing to say but I think it would have been better if Derrick died when he was little. He nearly died but didn't but if he had this kid Maisie would have had a life. I think she was just a teenager when she died which explains her bad decision to leave her baby with Derrick and his mother. I think it was about fear and being a teenager and okay maybe a little bit of oh shit maybe this kid is evil too. Shelly was the adult so she should have said we're all going. It is sad that the kid had the guts to leave while the mother just sat back and did nothing. She literally did nothing. I can't feel bad for her. I feel bad for Maisie and I feel bad for Gabe. If this show is still on and she's alive this bitch is gonna be talking about her grandson that she adopted killing someone or hell he might kill her. Why did they let her keep him?
I can overlook the incident in the store where Derrick wanted a truck. She was at the store for groceries and he said he wanted a truck. She told him no so he grabbed the truck and smashed it to hell. Kudos to that kid they got to play the little Derrick since he was really good and creepy as fuck. I get her giving in to avoid the kid throwing a tantrum although I think she should have just paid for the broken truck and gave that to him instead of buying a second truck. This is red flag one but I'd let this pass if she actually did something after this. Aside from the pictures of Derrick when he was little with the red eyes which were creepy and screaming hello I'm the real live Damien that one picture of him when he was really young was very disturbing. You could see in that picture that something wasn't right. He's a sociopath and clearly has no conscience. Even Bob sensed that something was off with this kid when he joked about looking for the 666 on the kid's head. It was like she was shocked that someone else would notice something off about this kid. She was very strange with her relationship with Derrick. It sometimes seemed like she was treating him like he was her husband. I have to wonder what kind of sitch she grew up in but frankly I don't give a fuck because a lot of people have shitty parents and childhoods since we aren't all lucky to have loving supportive parents but guess what most of us don't go around killing people.
She mentioned Derrick lining up his toys. Who cares? What she should have been focused on was the part where a kid came over for a play date that Derrick attacked because the kid dared to touch one of his toys. Instead of realizing at that moment that something was wrong. She did say she was scared of him. Hello he was a small child at this point. I'm not sure how old but really young like maybe sixth or so. She should have taken him to the doctor since for all she knows the way he's acting could have had something to do with what happened when he was a baby. She did nothing. She didn't even tell the mother that her evil spawn attacked this poor kid who just wanted to play. I hope that kid told his mom and that this woman kept herself and this kid away from these two. Shit the woman should have brought charges against the kid. Okay that probably wouldn't work but damn something should have been done. Call Child Protective Services. I hope someone working for them watched this episode since that child needs to be taken away from her stat.
Shelly ends up marrying Bob who tries to be a father to this kid. Nothing was mentioned about the bio dad but Bob tried but there's only so much you can do when no one is backing you up. Shelly would always take her evil spawn's side. I don't know why some people on Twitter were flipping out about Bob wanting the kid to eat his breakfast before opening Christmas presents. That's not fucked up at all. Instead the kid sits at the table and day looking at the eggs he refuses to eat. The next day Shelly tells Derrick that Bob's gone and that he can open his presents. What the fuck? Are you kidding me lady? He opens his present which was a game boy but he breaks it. Instead of taking that as yet another red flag that she needs to do something she instead goes back to the store and claims the item was broken during shipping and gets a new one. What the fuck? When Derrick is older Bob tries telling the evil spawn that they're are going out to dinner and the kid is trying to get his stepfather to hit him. I'm not sure if he would have killed Bob if the man did give into temptation to punch this kid or if he just wanted him arrested since he knew that Bob couldn't be controlled by him like mommy could. Instead of standing by her husband she takes Derrick's side. Bye bitch. Smart move Bob leaving this bitch.
Derrick ends up getting a girlfriend and during this time he seems to be acting human. She ends up pregnant and Shelly lets them move in. At first things are fine but gradually Derrick shows the evil within with his rules and controlling behavior. Finally Maisie is fed up. I think she's still in high school but she has the guts to leave but Shelly doesn't. I'm sorry but during the parts where they were doing the reenactment where Derrick was calling her a stupid loser I couldn't help but say hey he's got a point. Bitch you're the adult here and you're hiding in the bedroom. How in the fuck did he get a gun? It clearly wasn't done legally but hello when he pulled a gun on her and threatened to slit her throat she should have called the cops. Of course she didn't because that's what Shelly does she does nothing and things just get worse and worse. She's out of the house for a bit for surgery and comes back to discover that the dog Lucy is dead. Yep the poor dog is Derrick's first victim. He murdered the dog but claimed someone hit her because she ran out into the street even though she wasn't known for that so she was cremated but he didn't bothered to get her ashes because that would cost money. Bitch that's another red flag that something is wrong. If a person can kill a pet like that chances are good that the next time is gonna be a human.
Shelly of course does nothing. She drinks. The irony is that this bitch ends up getting help for her drinking but it never occurred to her to get help for her son. Maybe something could have been done to save this girl. Of course Shelly could have warned the girl about what she was getting into. She could have gone elsewhere and cut ties with Derrick. Instead Shelly has the kid move in and she ends up leaving which was smart but I'm confused a bit about why she left the baby with this useless woman and her evil spawn. I'm thinking fear and her being so young played a big role in that and it was clear that she didn't have family in her life that gave a shit. If I'm not mistaken I think Maisie was lured back to the house. I don't know how it happened. Maybe Derrick said he wanted Maisie to take the baby or something. When they showed the scene with him pacing and saying no one else is going to be daddy to Gabe or something like that I knew that he was going to kill Maisie and possibly the baby.
Shelly gets home from an AA meeting I think when she finds bloody footprints. Hello that would be your cue to call 911 you stupid bitch but no she thinks Derrick punched something and got hurt. Uh why the bloody footprints if he punched something? Could this woman be more stupid? I don't feel bad for her at all. She says she knows people are judging her and we are because there's no excuse for what she did or rather what she didn't do. This bitch did nothing to prevent this from happening. Maybe he was going to do something anyway but she could have done something about Maisie but she didn't. She finds Maisie in the tub with her throat slit. Gee Shelly does that sound familiar? She finally realizes that there's a baby involved and she is worried about the baby. Luckily someone spotted the killer and the baby so they were found without anything happening. Oh please bitch you knew he wasn't going to kill himself and the baby. If he was going to do that he would have done it at the house. Why did she get custody of this kid? Who knows how fucked up this kid has gotten in the five years she's been raising him? Just giving birth doesn't make her a mother since she was never a mother to this kid.
You would think that this would be the last straw but nope this bitch wanted to help her son. She wanted to help him. What the fuck? This kid killed the mother of your grandchild and you're worried about him. Come on you know he was lying when he made that phone call and said he loved you etc. This guy isn't capable of regular human emotions. He was just saying what he needed to say to get her to help him since he knew she would. This woman absolutely disgusts me. She should be in prison too. She said something about her not being alive in forty years but I have to wonder if she's making visits to him along with Gabe. Who knows what she's capable of? She clearly has no clue how to be a parent. Yes bitch you should feel guilty. You did nothing. Maybe trying to get him help wouldn't have changed anything but at least it would show you cared. What did you do make a deal saying that you would let him do whatever he wanted if he was allowed to live?
