Emotional Turmoil after Edgar Goes Missing

The crux of the series lies in Vincent’s emotional breakdown following the disappearance of Edgar. As Vincent struggles to cope with his loss, he clings to drawings of a blue monster puppet named Eric, made by his son.

Vincent and his wife Cassie are sent frantic with worry after the disappearance of their son, which splinters their unhappy marriage as Vincent spirals downwards. Wracked with guilt, he becomes increasingly obsessed with incorporating Eric into his Sesame Street-style show Good Day Sunshine.

Detective Ledroit’s Investigation

Portrayed by McKinley Belcher III, Detective Michael Ledroit is assigned to investigate Edgar’s unexplained disappearance. His persistent efforts and deep investigative sense provide pivotal tension throughout the narrative.

The Pivotal Moment

A major turning point is when a distressed Vincent wakes up in his son’s empty bedroom with an ET alarm clock echoing through the room. At this moment, Vincent finally acknowledges the haunting reality of Edgar’s loss.

Up until this plot-twist moment, Eric had existed only as a concept. But then a bleary-eyed Vincent was awoken by the sound of an ET alarm clock in his son Edgar’s empty bedroom and with a vodka bottle next to his head.

This moment exacerbates his guilt and propels him further down a path where reality begins to blur with delusion.
