  1. I still reckon the cousins should have been punished. Okay, so it started with Glendora being a horrible person and treating them badly, but that’s no excuse for cheating her out of her money. After all, what they did was illegal. There are far too many villains in girls’ serials who get off way too lightly, with pat forgiveness, or simply making themselves scarce, or no punishment shown.
