9. Why is Cheryl talking to her dead brother?

We take it back–Cheryl talking to her dead brother’s sewn up corpse in a wheelchair and saying, “Welcome home Jay-Jay” is a much more shocking reveal than even Charles being alive. It doesn’t get much more twisted and jaw-dropping than that.

Cheryl joined The Farm partway through season 3 as a way to reconcile with the loss of her twin brother Jason. Cheryl tells a very concerned Betty that she found Edgar’s words comforting, oh, and that he lets her talk to her not-so-dead brother Jason.

Of course, everyone knows Jason is actually dead and it’s later revealed that Edgar dug up Jason’s body, stitched the boy’s eyes and mouth shut, and hypnotized Cheryl into believing Jason was alive.

Initially revolted by the sight of her brother’s dug up corpse, Cheryl is mortified and enraged–but it’s never shown what was actually done with the body, until Cheryl brings her dead brother home and seats him in the parlor (yikes). Like Polly, Cheryl also spent a great deal of time at The Sisters of Quiet Mercy and it’s possible her mind hasn’t fully recovered, if our theory about Polly turns out to be true.
