Warning: Crash helmet is required for this mind-bending episode because Molly blows the roof off!

If you haven't listened to parts 1 and 2, do that first or you'll be lost. Here are the links to Part 1 and Part 2.

Elusive puzzle pieces and climactic revelations clearly appear. The breadcrumbs, all the clues MolIy drops, lead to what I call the inconceivable twist.

Molly grieves Dick’s death.

But, barely a week after the funeral, Molly is summoned to an emergency meeting with her husband’s business department heads, accountant, and attorney.

One long-time loyal employee starts the meeting by declaring to Molly, "I don’t know what you’ve been told."

Questionable business dealings are disclosed. Molly’s world turns upside down.

Molly soon discovers her late husband Dick is not the man everyone saw on the surface.

Molly labels the real diagnosis behind Dick’s behavior. And it’s the essence of evil.

Remember the title of this series, My Grief Was Gaslighted? Molly defines gaslighting. But worse, she identifies and labels exactly who might employ this mind-melting tactic.

Molly reveals Dick’s befitting mental condition—with its own special name.

A person with this disorder is a stealthy perpetrator—the pure essence of evil.

And Molly describes exactly how the perpetrator chooses his target.

Revelations vindicate and crush Molly—because she realizes, for decades, she was the target. Right in Dick's cross-hairs, Molly was the bullseye.

And there’s more…

Dick had a secret addiction. And secret money accounts. Secrets kept from Molly. Did others know?

Molly details the corrosive mind games plied against her and her kids.

And I point-blank ask, How did you not see this? And what is grief like now? And now, what loss do you grieve?

Please listen diligently to part three of my late evening conversation with widowed guest co-host Molly Murphy.
