What do you make of this line?
TJ heard someone say it when Lily's body was dumped in the water, but he didn't actually hear someone laugh, nor did he notice anything or anyone else.
There have been great theories hinting at the ginger guy from Ep. 1 being "the boy who cried wolf" and somehow involved in the case (he has a motif seeking revenge on Bigby).
I remember a version of that story from when I was a child. And in that version the people from the village laugh at the boy when he seeks their help after the wolf really attacks his sheep.
The villagers heard his cries but they laughed because they thought it was another trick. The boy ran to the nearest villager and said, "A wolf is attacking the sheep. I lied before, but this time it is true!"
In another variation the wolf has the last laugh:
In any of these 2 cases the boy who cried wolf could be dealing with some sort of PTSD. He keeps having flashbacks and hears the villagers / the wolf taunting him. This would be supported by the fact that TJ didn't hear anyone laugh.
Maybe the solution is much more straightforward, because this is admittably already a bit far fetched. ^^
What is your take on this?
