if the Bloodline Rayburns only had therapy: a case-by-case scenario of possibility…SPOILER!! (Note: you probably won’t get it if you haven’t watched the series, so pop yourself some popcorn and come on back when you have watched it.)
Papa Rayburn, head demon, would not have broken Danny’s arm because Sarah would not have drowned. Sarah would not have drowned because when Sally and Robert had marital problems they would have talked about their feelings and had real conversations with their children.
Danny, the scapegoat, would have become a chef and paid for his own therapy and rehab. He then would have realized these screwballs’ image of him was just that, an image, and he would have peeled off the garbage to his inner soul. When he went home to visit, he would have driven himself and paid for the gas. He would not engage with the family’s storyline about him and would have earned John’s respect.
Meg Rayburn would have married Marco, had many children, stopped boozing it up and led both AA meetings and Course in Miracles workshops.
Kevin would have told John to f_off the first time he tried to fix it for Kevin. This would have prevented Kevin from having to help John cover up Danny’s murder. Kevin and Val and Rocky could have still escaped to Cuba but Kevin would have taken responsibility for all the details, for sure he wouldn’t have missed turning off Val’s GPS on her phone.
John would have stopped being the hero, cheered up, and individuated from the Rayburn’s eventually putting Dick Gilbert in Federal prison for drug trafficking.
Sally would have watched reruns of Carrie and released her claws from the backs of her children.
Well, as they say…would-a, could-a, should-a
