“She must have known. Surely she must have, even subconsciously. She knew what he was like, and yet she failed to do the one thing she was obliged to do, to protect her son!” – Benedict Cumberbatch as Patrick Melrose (At Last)

This is so harsh on Patrick, I imagine that he knew his mother was distant about her husband and possibly guessed he abused many people. She must have realised what was happening but was scared of her husband. I wish she had just hugged him and said ‘sorry’
