"Going from caring to hating doesn't happen in the blink of an eye. It's a gradual change, because that's how people work. You don't hate me, not yet." Or maybe he just couldn't accept that reality.

Or... no, family felt wrong. Cora was something else entirely, and here he was losing that. He knew how she was. He knew that at the very least he couldn't salvage this in this moment in time. Maybe he couldn't do it ever. But he would damn well try... very, very carefully.
