Very good question, and at long last someone has asked it of Clarrie.
Various thoughts, in no particular order.
Who in the seven hells does Clarrie think she is? If the child’s parent has said “No contact with so&so’” then you don’t bloody well leave them with so&so. A nanny, au pair or childminder could and would be sacked for that.
Do any of the SWs ever encounter an actual child? The pestilential mite was, reportedly ‘hungry and getting upset’. On a supermarket run with its grandmother. The thing is rising six, not just turned two. And if she really was sooo hungry that she couldn’t bear an hour’s delay - they were in the supermarket bleedin’ carpark. Could Clarrie not go and get the shining little wit a sandwich or some Monster Munch (The Nietzschian abyss of snacks) or a Mars bar or something? And then change to the emergency tyre to go to RipOffsRUs and then drive the PLM back to where she was expected to be, on the understanding that if there was One More Squeak out of her, it would be bread and water and early bed for a fortnight and Bad Things would happen to Peppa Pig?
We probably aren’t going to be treated to Will shooting first Emma, in the throat, and then Clarrie in the wobbling wattles that mask much of hers, and that is a great pity.
If Will doesn’t shoot a) himself; and b) other deserving targets (and I have a horrible feeling he won’t), then the best thing he could do would be to find a job elsewhere and decamp with the sickly and tedious Mite and have nothing to do with any of his f***tard family ever again.
All credit to Poppy for slashing grandma’s tyre, though.
