Could MR. HOYT who owns the chicken factory also be the one who owns the BROWN SEDAN???
They say the reason the BROWN car stuck out was because most people who lived in that area didn't drive NEW CARS, and MR. HOYT should also be someone who could afford to own a NEW ONE.
And IF MR. HOYT lost his grandchild (who was also miserable because her parents would fight with each other as much as Julie's do), then one could also see the reason why he might give them TOYS and try to do something to help the kids get away from them.
And that NOTE they got also seems to indicate whoever sent it thinks JULIE is better off without them.
And maybe when the kids tried to run away from them, it was also already dark and Will FELL to his death for that reason???
Then perhaps JULIE also placed her brother's hands into the PRAYER POSTITION after MR. HOYT picks him up and moves him into the CAVE like area where he's found???
And maybe MR. HOYT was also dressed like a woman at the time because he was having an affair with the one eyed black man???
Still another thing to consider is how the bike that we see FREDDY fooling around with in the PARK area had HIGH HANDLEBARS like the one JULIE rides.
So WHY would FREDDY lie and say that he was riding the bike that WILL had when we see him on JULIE's bike for a few seconds???
Here's another interesting article:
Wayne and Roland are drawn to the Hoyt Foods factory, where Lucy used to work. The company's boss, Mr. Hoyt, who started the Ozark Children's Outreach program a couple of years ago, has offered a monetary reward for anyone with information about the missing girl. The detectives find this behavior suspicious and demand the names of every Hoyt employee.
Then there are several mentions of a brown Sedan driven by a white woman and a black man with a scar on his face. A local farmer tells the detectives he saw the couple parked in the woods nearby where the kids used to play. This is brought back up in 2015 by documentary maker Elisa Montgomery (Sarah Gadon) who says the details were overlooked by investigators. She mentions that other witnesses saw the brown Sedan and a scarred black man near Devil's Den but that the reports were never followed up.
The reference to a brown Sedan seems to trigger a lost memory for Wayne in 2015. He remembers seeing tire tracks in the woods.
But his mind is falling apart and playing tricks on him. Last week he was displaced in time, this episode he is haunted by Amelia who tells him the past, present, and future is a "stubbornly persistent illusion." She wonders if he is starting to wake up and see things clearly. It's almost as if by losing his memories he is gaining a sense of freedom. He's finally separating himself from time.
When the ghostly vision of Amelia asks "Are you awakening to what you withheld? Did you harden your heart to what loves you the most?" I took that to mean that Wayne was so obsessed with the Purcell case that he closed himself off from his family. He withheld his love from them because he was unable to detach himself from the investigation. And it could mean that. But then Amelia asks, "Are you worried what they'll find? What you left in the woods?" which is a lot more ominous.
Did Wayne leave behind evidence? Did he somehow tamper with the case and that's what led to the wrong man being convicted? Or is this all just a giant metaphor of a man who left a part of himself behind the day he came out of those woods. It could be neither. It could be both.
After he'd hunted down and killed her parent, perhaps what WAYNE left behind in the WOODS or in the VIET NAM JUNGLE was a young VIET NAM girl who was about the same age as JULIE ???
The article continues:
So as the Purcell case reopens in 1990, with Roland bringing Wayne aboard his taskforce, it also reopens old wounds. Despite being tired of the case being in his life, Wayne cannot let it go. He cannot separate himself from the case just as he cannot separate himself from time. And in the end, there will be a price to pay for his compulsion. "How much do I have to lose?" Wayne asks the Amelia specter. "Everything," she answers. "Same as everybody else."
And apparently he's also PAID a PRICE for what he did by being so OVER PROTECTIVE with his own daughter that he's also now PERMANENTLY SEPARATED from her??
And a continuation of the SEPARATION THEME continues when the article also mentions this matter to us:
Extra Case Notes
-Not a good week for Woodard aka Trash Man (Michael Greyeyes). He's beaten up by a bunch of bloodthirsty locals who tell him to leave and never come back. I suspect that Woodard will be going on a revenge spree soon - and that zipped up bag we see him carrying out of his shed is probably full of weapons.
-Speaking of Woodard, I'm now wondering if he is the man currently locked up for the crime. Tom mentions to Roland that it was the accused's kids that have been fighting to get the conviction overturned. That likely rules out the purple Beetle teens. Whereas we know that Trash Man has kids who are possibly in adulthood in 1990.
TOM PURCELL is separated from JULIE.
WOODWARD the TRASH MAN is separated from his KIDS.
Detective WAYNE is SEPARATED from his daughter BECCA.
And since we also heard TOM's MOM saying he was working OFF SHORE at the time when JULIE was conceived, is it possible she might also be the BIOLOGICAL OFFSPRING of MR. HOYT???
That could also explain the reason why he'd be HANGING around inside of the BROWN SEDAN in the WOODS.
