In Rubbernecking, we see what could have been if Corbett had known about Brandon all along… He would have happily left his failing marriage to be with Julie and his children. The Stackhouse family would have pooled their resources and started the family business. They would have had a better understanding of the children’s Supernatural needs…
Money isn’t the only thing that makes Rubbernecking such a fortunate strand of the braid.
What if, by some strange twist of fate, someone had taken Michelle’s car keys so she couldn’t kill herself by driving drunk?
What if Corbett and Julie continued to live in oblivion, not realizing there was another Stackhouse out there?
What if poor Sookie had been left in the care of the emotionally abusive and supernaturally ignorant woman who institutionalized her in other Verses?
What would Sookie be like after a childhood without the love and support of her family?
This story takes place in October of 2001… between Bright Things and Rubbernecking… and just a few short months before the Revelation.
