If Molly had not stood against Mike...
I was curious as to something; I've watched this movie several times and a question always stood out in my brain.
What if Molly had not stood against Mike? In the scene when the town is deciding whether to give Linoge what he wants, Mike screams that his son is not a part of the obscenity and Molly comes along and says, "Yes, he is." What if Molly had not gone against Mike and agreed with him saying that Ralphie was not a part of it. What would have happened, do you think? Technically Linoge would still be getting what he wanted, they would have just taken Ralphie out of the mix. But, that raises an issue because it seemed pretty clear to me that Ralphie was the kid Linogue had his sights on. But he did say that all eight children were all equal in his eyes.
I don't know. I was just curious. Any thoughts?
