Flashbacks followed young William (Jermel Nakia) and Laurel (Jennifer C. Holmes) prior to Randall’s birth. She was attempting to remain tidy and was imagining a brand-new task and a brand-new home, however after he was born in your home, she took some narcotics for the discomfort. William then found that she wasn’t reacting, so paramedics came and everybody believed she was dead. William ran off with the infant, and obviously missed out on the minute where Laurel gasped for breath.

We’re not going to kind of drag out a mystery like that one over multiple seasons, or anything. So there’s a pretty quick answer and I think it will be found to be elegantly done.”
