I love how this chapter gives the most insight into Gerard's mind.
I think that just maybe Gerard understands much more than he lets on. And the reason he grew attached to Frank's girls was because he misses his daughter. And what Jamia said about him killing her just kind of done him in emotionally. But you peobably don't wanna hear the ramblings of my over analytical mind.
This is great, and I'm excited to read more.
