Now this is her, after all her beauty is gone. She is left crippled because of her fall from grace.
Her husband is left to ‘emotionally’ and ‘psychologically’ carry her, his permanent burden that he would give his life for.
I’ve thought of a backstory that she got this way because of sacrificing her beauty through hard labour to help her husband. the tendrills that connect them signifies that he might be carrying her, but he is sucking his life force out of her. its a mutual destruction.
