Absolutely! Before I disliked her character but after the reveal, I felt bad for her because of how rigid the traditions were and how grief is or isn't dealt with. Once I knew, I could understand how she had created an emotional barrier between herself and her loved ones, to protect herself from going through that deep level of grief again. It also made more sense about how she treated Maddie, it was more disappointment in herself that came out as hatred towards Maddie because she didn't have the courage to stand with her true love against all odds, she put her family wishes first and so she was always wondering what if she had the courage, would her life have been better and would she be a different person? I have many experiences where once I knew where people were truly coming from in their past affecting their present, I have a lot more empathy and understanding for them.
