The "A Series Of Unfortunate Events" Fancy Door Broke Our Hearts, So Let's Talk About It

This show is supposed to be for CHILDREN?!

Posted on

If you've been watching A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix, then you know that it's highly distressing.

The things that happen to the poor Baudelaire children are — as Lemony Snicket promises — very unfortunate.

Netflix

But this first season had a moment that was worse than all other moments ever, and it was the VERY FANCY DOOR.

SPOILERS for "The Miserable Mill" episode follow!

We'd been led to think that the Baudelaires would finally be reunited with their parents, played by Will Arnett and Cobie Smulders.

But the Parents aren't at the lumber mill to see the Baudelaires at all.

Netflix

They're at THEIR OWN HOME TO SEE THEIR CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY AREN'T THE BAUDELAIRES' PARENTS.

Honestly, it was traumatizing.

The whole show is tough to stomach, but this was just beyond cruel.

when you still thought behind that very fancy door is the Baudelaire parents but you already knew it wasn't #asoue

So THANKS FOR THE DEPRESSION, GUYS.

The Very Fancy Door in A Series of Unfortunate Events killed me. I am no longer an optimist thanks Lemony Snicket 😪

And while we're at it, fuck Mr. Poe.
