His light hearted character is welcoming, especially when it’s placed against that of his wife’s, Sam, who spends her time worrying while checking her watch and measuring time. She’s extremely officiant but highly. This kind of match should be ideal, but it isn’t. Equitable work/life balances in the Felding home aren’t easy to find. Mitchell is dedicated to his wife, but his efforts to settle her anxieties are never enough. There’s always another obstruction blocking the path, especially to their bedroom.
A long-term celibate relationship began their journey. Abstinence was meant to be a gift — well-intended show of devotion requires each other. Unfortunately, it worked against them. By the time they married, sex was too big to manage. It had become something to fear and doubt. It never turned into a form of intimacy. Sex then became a weapon — abused in unexpected ways.
Counsellor Tony Brindell is helping the couple work on their marriage. He believes the issues plaguing it are minor, but he isn’t aware of their depth. Despite Tony’s best efforts, neither of his clients are benefiting from therapy. Both are ill-equipped to move forward.
It’s Mitchell who’ll first learn to let go of conformity and make the breakthrough — seeking intimacy in the arms of another.
…but then he’ll fail to mention something of the murders that were reported in the media. He thinks he knows one of the victims. You can’t blame him for not speaking up. Samantha constantly dismisses him. Fixing the marriage takes priority and conflict like that isn’t welcome. Finding out what happened to those women will have to be left up to others.
