A prominent character and suspect in Season 1 is Dr. Kinbott, Wednesday’s gentle and understanding therapist. She encourages the stoic Wednesday to open up on subjects like her novel, her relationship with her mother and her connection to the murders. The whole family also attends a group session, but it quickly turns into a Wednesday where their father is being interrogated because he is a murder suspect.
In addition to meeting Wednesday and her family, Dr. Kinbott also Xavier and Tyler. Xavier meets with her to discuss his visions, such as the one that predicts her gruesome murder. Xavier’s famous father demands that therapy sessions take place outside of Dr. Kinbott’s usual office to prevent the media from exposing his troubled son’s problems. Meanwhile, Tyler is looking for Dr. Kinbott to deal with his mother’s death.
Although the therapy doesn’t exactly save Tyler from his later fate, all of Dr. Kinbott that it’s normal for teenagers their age to need help and guidance, whether they’re “normies,” “outcasts,” or from a privileged family. The fact that Xavier’s father tries to hide his therapy sessions only reinforces the mental health stigma and does nothing to normalize the idea of seeking help.
