I cannot remember back to those conversations at the Convent, but yes, Rafe spent some time w/the sisters. So was he a little ‘hellion’ so Mom was glad to be rid of him or was Mom an abused person who Rafe escaped from rather than stay home and ‘fight’ or get ‘beaten up’ by the ‘father figure’? I find it strange that "Mom" allows her teenager (don’t even know that she’s the youngest in the family yet) to go visit her siblings for this extended period of time. Makes you wonder if Mom is incarcerated or busy taking care of an ill family member? There is such an empty canvas with the Hernandez family!
